  3. Another dead RD07...

    Africa Twin
    OK, so I got home the other day, put bike away as normal, no problems, but next day...nothing. No lights, nada, dead. Getting in there with my multimeter, I diagnosed a knackered ignition barrel, swapped it for a new one from David Silver and the bike started first time, roared into life. Great...
  4. Transalp tire swap with Africa Twin

    Transalp Technical Specs
    Hi. My current back tire on my transalp 600v 1998 (Back: 120/90-17 m/c 64s) is more then dead, but i have some new tires sitting on my Africa twin 650 1988, (my father told me they are 140/80 R17, no idea how the naming system works.) I guess if they fit, it would be a slimmer tire, but would it...
  5. Excessive chain wear using 17T Shadow front sprocket?

    Africa Twin
    Hi All, Using the 17T front sprocket from Honda Shadow seems to be quiet popular here. Has anyone noticed too short life of the chain, while using the 17T sprocket? My current JT chain with OEM Shadow sprocket is dead after 10k km. I do ride most of the time on gravel, but that seems too...
  6. Starter Relay Woes

    Africa Twin
    So a while back one morning she failed to start, ignition dead. I traced this to the starter relay, and it was fairly well melted as is well documented - a bit of a wiggle and she came to life. So I ordered the new relay, which came - and now Ive fitted it I've run into issues and she wont...
  7. RD07 Dual Pulsar question

    Africa Twin
    Hi members. I'm working on a friends RD07 which he's trying to "bring back from the dead". Long story short. The original engine blew (or got blown) and he bought a new one from a stripped down bike. His bike is a RD07 XRV750 T which has onepick up/pulsar coil listed on the Haynes wiring...

    Great Roads/Routes
    Out & about early on Thursday for a bimble on the hottest day of the year so far. First stop at Doc's for a repeat prescription, second stop Tollesbury for a snack - little independent butcher with a mad glint in eye and blood splatters on his apron that was selling sausage roll by the length...

    Transalp
    Gi, just wanna post my experience with the TA600. Had it in storage in my +5C garage all winter and fired her up a couple of times. Then come spring, ready to ride, fire up, but no.. the dash lights flicker , then all dead. Suspected dead battery. Charge it with CTEK charger for motorbike ...
  10. Total wheel bearing failure, with photos (anyone got spares?)

    Africa Twin
    Hi guys, It would seem that the previous owner of my RD03 suffered a wheel bearing failure on the rear. Instead of finding a new hub they bodged it and have left me to sort out the mess. The bearing should sit between these two lines, not going to happen here. A mixture of bearing failure...

  12. Still having electrical issues....

    Africa Twin
    Hi all, I posted here about 1 week ago about my 3 year old dead battery that caused one of my CDIs to stop working. Since then I have got a new battery (12v 14A gel battery) For a few days I had no issues, but the last 2 days driving my cdi has been acting up. This is what happens...
  13. recommended crack repairs/fairing

    Africa Twin
    Lots of researching and can't figure out what would be best for crack repairs. Front fairing on my 97 xrv has 2 cracks leading down from windscreen. 1 crack dead ends into bolt hole from top 1/2inch long, the other opposite side from top down for about 2 inches. Never done repairs on this stuff...
  14. Did my CDI burn out ??

    Africa Twin
    Hi all, Why I'm asking is because I only had CDI failure symptoms for 1 or 2 km and then I put my spare CDI in. Basically what happened was my battery is in very bad shape and isn't holding a charge, the last 3 days the battery was even worse. I was on my way to a motorcycle shop to get a...
  15. Bit of a puzzle!

    Transalp
    2006 Transalp. I got work but when I tried to start it, going home, it was completely dead. As if the battery wasn't there. Got it started from a battery pack someone had. It ran roughly for a few minutes and the rev counter was working intermittently but after a few minutes it ran fine. As if...
