  1. Africa Twin
    Going to look at an RD03 this weekend. Any specifics to look for? I will be checking wheels/front end for play, rust issues and just overall condition. My concern more for the sprocket spline issue I suppose. Other than worn splines anything else there to look for when I check it out. Hoping...
  2. Transalp
    Chaps After a long absence from this site, I have returned to the fold, and keen to ride the bike. However, the bike has had long lay up - some 18 months or more - in the shed, with no use whatsoever. I am well aware this is disgraceful behaviour, and am also aware to check out brakes, tyres...
  3. Dominator / FMX
    Just wondering if there are any Dominators sitting around looking for a new home? It would have to be a going concern and in good condition as I don't have workshop to put anything too big right.:rolleyes: If you know of any please drop me a PM. Thanks Reg.
  4. Transalp
    Hi to all! Have been toying with the idea of swapping my 650 with a 2015 NC750X. It's new but it's not the latest model. My main concern is the EFI... what's it like on low throttle openings? I've also heard many bikers complain that throttle may be snatchy / jerky when opening from closed...
  5. Varadero
    Hi, I'm attracted to the Varadero as my Falco is just too uncomfortable and the Vara fairing seems to allow 90-100 mph cruising in comfort. My concern is that the off-road styling means that the exhausts are exactly where the panniers should go - photos I've seen seem to make the bike as wide...
  6. Mechanical Advice
    heya, I'm just about to start work on the AT and I'm doing it in stages which means the tank'll be off for a few weeks. It'll be stored in a friend's garage - is there anything I should be aware of? A best practice for storing it? Maybe drain the tank? Or isn't it a significant issue? My main...

    I just bought myself a 1993 Honda NTV 650 from Germany which I have been informed has the same engine as the transalp.(who knew):D:D:D I am chuffed to bits with the bike and have started enjoying biking a bit more. I love the vibe the bikes gives off but I have one concern. I have ridden 800km...

  9. Africa Twin
    Found some damage on my new rear wheel and central wheels are insisting that the damage was caused by the spoke key and can't be helpled due to the angle of the spokes. My concern is that the rims are now susceptible to corrosion where the anodisation seal has been broken as the metal...

    Thanks for your suggestions as to what I can do with my " lame posting " and " completely off the beating track conversation threads ". " My input " as you put it, may or may not be " lacking in intelligence " and my ability to " bore you to tears " with astounding ease, only proves that maybe...
