  1. AT Engine Rebuild - Stuck Cranks Help Please

    Africa Twin
    Hi, So I am rebuilding my AT RD04 Engine after a strip and repaint and have hit a bit of a problem: I replaced the crank journal bearing shells and took what I thought was reasonable trouble to identify the correct sizing for these (as you have a couple of options depending on the sizing stamp...
  2. RD04 wont start :-(

    Africa Twin
    Hey guys So dont use my AT a massive amount, maybe once a week max. Came to use it yesterday, started fine, i rode it about 5 miles. Stopped for about 3-4 hrs and returned to it.

  6. what is this called?

    Ok folks this thing fell out of my 1993 Transalp fairing supposed to go up at the top and a screw goes into it thereby keeping the inner fairing from rattling, ya sure. Then of course the PO cranks that screw down and guess what - this thing strips out the hole and no longer works. So in my...
  7. (Mountain) Bike nicked

    Had my 2005 Specialized Hardrock nicked from outside my house last night. Just wondered if any local peeps could keep an eye out for me :thumbright: It had a pannier rack, SPD pedals, Truvativ ISIS BB with Race Face cranks and bar ends. Pretty distinctive and I'd like it back as it was done...
