  1. CRF1000L Service Manual

    Africa Twin
    My CRF1000L is now out of warranty so kicking dealer servicing into touch :p Having just clocked 16000 miles a valve check was due (££££££££). So I reviewed the Honda Service Manual - pretty poor, watched some YouTube videos and then came across a fantastic service manual from Marks Motorcycle...

  3. Shock Absorber

    Varadero
    I bought one of the last Varas in 2014, made in 2011 I believe. I’ve done three long European rides (3K to 4K miles) and it’s been brilliant. It’s now done nearly 41K miles and in preparation for another long ride around Europe I’m thinking I should change the rear shock. Just looking at Haynes...
  4. Speedometer overlay

    Africa Twin
    Any opinions on the speedometer overlays I have seen? I’m back in states with rd07a and would like to change speedo over to mph now from kph . This is a lot cheaper option versus full speedo replace. How hard if someone has done

    Hi AT friends, would apreciate your help again :) I will get a top end engine job done in Malaysia soon. Hopefully just change of pistons rings, but who knows when opening.. My mechanic (Sunny cycle in Kuala Lumpur) says i might also need a slightly bigger piston. He says you can get pistons...

    Africa Twin
    Hi everybody, I am rebuilding front brakes and I need to change two out of four pistons, but I have trouble finding them in online shops where I usually get my stuff (german and austrian shops). Some have it for older models, some say that it is the same piston for older and newer models (I...

  8. Output shaft renewal

    Transalp
    Started to change the output shaft on my 700 XL. All the bolts holding the chrome heat shields and the painted heat shields were sized in so that took me around 4 hours to do, I’m a slow worker, drill out re-tap the holes and order new bolts. The rest went as I expected it to no real drama...

    Africa Twin
    Hi All, Just thought i'd introduce myself, currently own a BMW R1150GS, though looking at changing to a Africa Twin XRV 750, I've been hankering after one for a long time now, and have decided to sell my GS (or swap, if you see my thread) and hopefully get one, so beware there wil be plenty of...
  10. MIL Light Come on

    Transalp
    Hi Chaps, XL700VA, 2008 with 20K miles on the clock. Riding along a few weeks a go, on full throttle the engine cuts. Roll the throttle back off and it picks up again. Every time I open the throttle the engine dies, but picks up again when I roll it off. Bike is un rideable. No MIL . Turn it...

    Africa Twin
    Did any of the RD07's have a blue seat? Mine's a 2001 year and fancy a change but don't really want to sway from the original bike?

  16. Water Pump drain bolt problems

    Transalp
    I decided to change my coolant recently and found that when i replaced the drain bolt with a new washer it wouldn't tighten properly. I removed the bolt and found that what appeared to be the thread from inside the drain bolt hole had come away and onto the bolt. I decided to buy a new bolt to...
  17. Suspension upgrades, emulator/intiminator and rear damper

    Africa Twin
    Hello, I am an Africa Twin rider from Denmark, that are building a bit on my RD04. The ride ready weight with full tank is 210 kg (I am still trying to get the weight down to 200kg). I really like the bike, except for the suspension. It feels way too hard/harsh on fast bumps and holes...
  18. Clutch cable change

    Transalp
    TA 650 (probably applies to all models though) For anyone thinking of doing this..on the 650 its a bit of a job. The Haynes manual says you just "attach the lower end of the new cable to the upper end of the old cable, and just pull the cable through", yeah, right. What it fails to mention...
