    Africa Twin
    Did any of the RD07's have a blue seat? Mine's a 2001 year and fancy a change but don't really want to sway from the original bike?

  3. CRF1000L Windscreens & turbulence. Scepticism, humility and possibly poor spelling.

    Africa Twin
    CRF1000L Windscreens & turbulence. Scepticism, humility and possibly poor spelling. I thought I'd briefly share my journey to achieving the holy grail of a wind and turbulance free ride. Relatively, of course. So, standard screen was, to be frank, rubbish for me. Wind right in the face...

  7. Keihin flatside carb

    Dominator / FMX
    Greetings from Denmark. I want to put my Dommie on the road as spring is just around the corner. I have fitted a flatside carb which was set up by Nick in Brum but I fitted a bell mouth on it and no ammount of adjustment will stop it backfiring and spitting. Nick advised me to put an air filter...
  8. Valve Clearances and Cam Chain Tensioners

    Varadero
    After having a 2002 carb'd Vara, I bought one of the last Varaderos in 2014 (manufactured 2011) and now it has done 27,400 mainly on long trips around Europe. I was just wondering how long the CCTs are good for? I don't hear any nasty rattles or anything so I'm just wondering whether it's a good...

  10. CRF1000L. 1000mile thoughts.

    Africa Twin
    Thought I'd post some thoughts on the bike after the first 1,000miles or so. Inevitable comparisons to other bike, all things are relative! All comments are for on road - not been brave enough for off road yet, but a couple of green lanes identified...! 1) Engine. The stats are deceptive, it...
  11. Clutch lever assemblies

    Dominator / FMX
    I'm looking to order a new clutch lever assembly for my RD08, as mine as seen better days. Thought I may aswell tidy the control area up with a bit of bling ? Fancy a protaper/ASV clutch lever with the hot start lever, it says the hot start lever can be used as a choke. Anyone had any...
  12. RD04 fairing

    Africa Twin
    Good morning all. I recently acquired an RD07a from one of the guys from this forum. As things happen I also became an AT-parts-hoarder. :) I came across a gumtree advert last week for a job-lot of few various AT 04/07 bits from another AT owner/parts-hoarder who was moving and needing to empty...
  13. Wanted: Transalp 2008 parts for adventure trip (screen, bash plate, engine bars, hand

    For Sale / Wanted
    Hi all, I'm planing a trip to Mongolia next year so I think it's time to update the Trans to be a little more suitable for the trip. I don't fancy buying parts new as they are extortionate. So i'm hoping that some of you lovely people might have some spares you want to sell. I'm looking for...
  14. Seating options...

    Africa Twin
    Poxy seat on the rd07 is the most uncomfortable thing I've ever had the displeasure of sitting on, soooo what are my options? Wait for one to come up secondhand? Spend a fortune on Corbin or top sellerie? Has anyone used the polish lad on eBay that charges 90 quid? I've already got an...

  17. My speedo stopped working

    Africa Twin
    So I picked up my new to me RD07 a week ago in Ireland. I'm in Italy now, after about 1,000 miles, and the speedometer has stopped working. It was a bit "bouncy" before, but then about 1 hour after I spray washed the bike, the speedo stopped all together. I checked the cable on both ends and it...
  18. my version of chain oiler

    Transalp

  19. Short trip to the Netherlands anybody?

    Transalp
    5 or 6 of us are planning to go to the Assen Moto GP again this year, not all riding Transalps. Because one of the blokes has booked a 4 berth cabin on the overnight ferry there is room for others to go. The ferry leaves Hull on Friday 23rd of June and returns from Rotterdam on Wednesday 28th of...
