  1. CRF450X supermoto wheel/tyre chain clearance

    CRF - New Forum!
    Title says it all really. Looking at my 450X with standard wheel and enduro tyre, there's not a lot of clearance between the tyre and the chain. Thinking about fitting supermoto wheels and wondered if the wider tyres run into chain clearance issues. Anyone done this and can comment?
  2. FX650 / SLR650 centre stand question

    Dominator / FMX
    Lo ! I want to save some coin, and instead of acquiring specific FX650 centre stand for my needs I am considering buying FMX650 centre stand for 1/3 cheaper instead. Anyone having any experience or comment on this ?

  4. CRF1000L ADV helmet - anyone got issues?

    Africa Twin
    Hi all, I am thinking of getting a Shoei Hornet ADV lid :D but I have seen the odd You Tube Vid and comment about ADV helmets vibrating or there's extra noise because of the "fork tunnel" on the AFrica Twin CRF1000L - basically wind / air streaming up through the forks that disrupts the 'peak'...

  6. PWM Radiator Controller

    Africa Twin
    Today I got the first bits of my Radiator fan controllers, These are simple Pulse width modulation MOSFET motor controllers, they come with a control knob and variable resistor to vary the motor speed, but I'll be adding a thermistor so the speed becomes temperature dependant. They are...

  10. 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...
  11. Radiator hose questions

    Africa Twin
    I'm going through the process of replacing all my coolant hoses on my RD03. Since it's damn near impossible to find the majority of the OEM shaped hoses, I've decided to go with some wire-reinforced silicone hoses from ASH: Wire Reinforced Silicone Hoses - - Silicone Hose...
  12. Exhaust Guard - looked cool to me

    Africa Twin
    I've been doing a lot of traveling in Europe and met a Czech guy in Montenegro who had just done Albania with his wife on an AT. Very interesting bloke with great stories. Anyway I was admiring his exhaust guard which he said he made. I don't have an AT, but I made a mental note to post the...
  13. Bikesure European cover?

    I have been shopping around for a new Multibike policy for my two bikes and have essentially ended with Bikesure and eBike, as bother are happy to insure an import (NX400) Bikesure impress as they can be bothered to respond to enquiries and provide answers, eBike less so, they push use of email...

  15. Honda NX400 Falcon

    This is South American version of the XR400, detuned slightly for longer life and service intervals, lower and far more comfortable for road work. Also has a stronger rear subframe for load carrying. (me?) I love the comment I read where it was described as an ideal 3rd World bike, robust and...
  16. Another idiot on the road

    From the BBC - Car driven with bonnet up on A31 in Hampshire. Really like the comment from the AA - the man's actions highlighted that some drivers were "outside the mould of normality". Outside the mould of normality? Well, that's one way of putting it. 100% free webcam site! | Awesome...
  17. Sweet !

    I was never one for shorts (shots), that is until i began going to the Nationals and fell in with the likes of Lowflyer, Francis Geoff and Eammon. Anyhoo, Meself and PhilW would meet at Hirwaun and begin our rideouts past Penderyn Distillery, of which i would make a comment to my wife about...

  19. Seat mod?

    There doesn't appear to be an aftermarket comfy seat option for the 650? General comment appears to be use an Airhawk for longer journeys. Question is has anybody ever tried fitting an airhawk IN a saddle? I do like to tinker:D:D:D
