  1. Africa Twin
    Will I lose many rpm's when cruising on freeways dropping down to a 47 tooth sprocket from a 49 on the bike . I've been looking on site and not finding much about rpm drop. I was hoping for a 45 tooth myself but cannot find one . Also will I need to shorten chain at all for those who have done...
  2. Africa Twin
    I've searched and there's a bazillion choices, what currently good for degreasing? Anyone use paraffin?
  3. Africa Twin
    Hi fellow riders, just signed up for this forum. Currently on a long trip - so far from Denmark to Cambodia :) I need to changed oil again, but are not sure if this oil is ok. In the manuals it says API grade E ,F or G. This one is API grade SL - is that ok? I dont have a lot of choices here...
  4. Africa Twin
    So my bike was either knocked over, or blown up during a fairly violent storm, recently - someone, no idea who, picked it up - which was rather nice of them :) But my handlebar is now bent (and the mirror's broken). It's hard to quantify but if I had to try I'd say there's probably a 3° to 5°...
  5. Transalp
    Hey guys, Been looking for a way to lower my footpegs on the TA 700, searched all over for a while and have stumbled on a few good choices. But what I'm really wondering is, which other models does the TA 700 share footpegs with? It could really widen the ebay search to know which, if any...
  6. Dominator / FMX
    It has probably been asked b4 (had a look but could not find anything) The swingingarm on a Dommie is not exactly hi tech , I know it works otherwise Mr Honda would not have used it, However has anyone used a n other swingingarm? would a beefier s/arm be of benefit? what other s/arm has been...
  7. Dominator / FMX
    My camshaft is pitted so I will have to replace it very soon Should I buy an xr600r hotcam? Are KentCams still in business ? Can I get the cam reprofiled and reground? is it cost effective? What is a reasonable cost of a new camshaft(my bike is an 88 Ro2) Has anyone had dealings with other...
  8. Austin's Adventures
    I buggered up the polls and there were two threads which I have now merged, so some things may be out of order, but I thought it worth keeping it all in one place. Given the weather conditions in Galloway and the remote prospect of a thaw it may be prudent on safety and enjoyment grounds to...
  9. Africa Twin
    Hi,and a very fine day to all. It's been quite awhile and I'm back here with a question OR MAYBE A COUPLE MORE.:toothy10: Has anyone done the conversion?any feedbacks? The reason,i am doing much serious offroading on the AT.So tyre choices on the 17' rear is limited. And I've actually have...
  10. XR
    I am currently stripping the bike and am looking at a few new parts, some of which people here are tempting me with, but as it's being stripped down its a worth while venture. Including powder coating the rusting frame and other bits and pieces. This brings me on to ask about exhausts. I...
  11. Transalp
    I've been looking at replacing the standard bars with Renthals on my 650 TA. I've read through loads of posts and the only person who appears to have fitted anything other than the Dakar High (Enduro High 613 bend) is Mudwiz - but that was ages ago. So, measuring the standard bars to...
  12. Transalp
    That post about the TA on a track day, and the fact that the SM wheels I had from the XR look a little odd on a TA, got me thinking. So, grippiest tyres on a 600 TA? (standard wheels: road riding not dual sport...) My guess is a pair of BT 45s (actually very good tyres: had them on a XBR500...
  13. Dominator / FMX
    Ey up, has anyone got a recommendation for road biased tyres? I won't be going off piste until it stops raining here and the knobblies it has on at the moment are too exciting in the wet, looking for more wet road grip, mileage not important. ta JonC
  14. Chatter
    Some of you will have noticed that I'm going to sell old twinkletoes, don't get me wrong I absolutely love the bike but I've had it for a few years now and being a woman it's time for a change (fickle lot us girls you know) So I've been looking at a few choices, and they are quite varied so...
  15. Dominator / FMX
    Im sorry if this has been asked before. Im chewing through my pirelli diablos quickly (one every 2 months), yes im doing heavy mileage! Any suggestions? I would still like some grippyness but i would prefer longer tyre life (maybe twin compounds?) Thanks.
  16. Transalp
    I have just ordered a new Transalp, but havent decided on the colour... The dealer has informed me I can take my pick when the bikes all turn up in April. Has anyone been offered a GT pack from their local Honda dealer when ordering their new bike or is the GT deal only available on the select...
  17. Africa Twin
