  3. Speedo Cable problem

    Africa Twin
    I'm having trouble removing the inner speedo cable on my AT. It broke about 30cm from the top and I am trying to push the old one up from the hub end and it doesn't budge. I've been somewhat forceful and no go. it spins however. Also worth noting that I have spayed a bunch of WD40 in the casing...
  4. Taller back suspension

    Africa Twin Technical Specs
    Hello. I am about to install to my rd07a a taller back suspension from a ktm. The question is: if the suspension is, lets say, 1cm taller how much taller would the back side of the bike become? Something like x3 ratio or no?

  9. Varadero fender extender

    Bodgers Corner
    I'm thinking of making a homemade fender extender for my Varadero. It seems if the front flap was about 10cm longer it would protect the engine from all salt, dirt etc splashes. Has anyone done this and how did you do it?
  10. Help with shipping a fuel tank. England to Montreal, Canada

    Africa Twin
    I am trying to buy an RD03 fuel tank but can't find an affordable shipper. Let's say the box would be 24" x 24" x 24" (60cm x 60cm x 60cm) and that the parcel would weight 5kg (who knows the exact weight of a fuel tank?) What has the cheapest rate to ship, considering I am in no rush? British...
  11. Centre Stand Extension

    Africa Twin
    Hi all due to the new suspension wheels and centre stand are now touching ground all at the same time. My idea was to weld some steel bar at the end of each centre stand leg. 4-5cm are needed to lift the rear wheel some 2-3cm off ground. Anyone did this before? Did it work? Other, better...
  12. Lowering a Vararararderroro; How's it done?

    Reason I ask is that I'll be back in civilsation next week and I've seen one advertised that ticks all the boxes, but has been lowered 3-5cm. I've contacted the seller and he says he bought it in a lowered condition and has no idea how it was done, but that the original bits are with it. I...

  16. Wide load

    Travel
    At what point would you say panniers are too wide. Had racks made up for the RD04, great workmanship, but, they are 60cm wide. My panniers are big but not that wide, 25cm each, which would then give me an arse like Doris at 110cm. I'll not be doing any filtering with them on so I'm not bothered...

  18. Which Vario?

    Transalp
    Hi, Based on previous topics on screens I'm set on an MRA Vario. However which Vario option should I go for? Vario Touring Screen (screen with integrated adjustable spoiler), X-Creen or X-Creen XCTA universal add-on? I'm 178cm/5'10" bare, so with boots and helmet I guess I'm shy of 6'? I think...

  20. New AT, second dumb question.

    Africa Twin
    Chain tension, I recall reading somewhere that it should be set 7cm below the swing arm on the sidestand. Is this about right? Oil level, I presume check this with the bike standing upright.
