  1. New carbs - Options

    Dominator / FMX
    Hi All, I've tried searching but haven't managed to find a definitive answer. Is there a direct replacement carb that would fit a 1999 nx650? I was going to strip and rebuild mine as it's got the usual tickover issue but if there is a better replacement that could be used I may well just go...
  2. CRF1000L Heated grips - any news anyone????

    Africa Twin
    Wondering if there is a definitive answer to the heated grips issues on the new AT - Has anyone had these fixed, replaced, or some compensation? :confused: I am hearing all kinds of odd stories: Some say they got a refund, others say Honda are not going to do anything :( I'm confused......
  3. My lone ride on a lane I didn't know

    Ride Reports and Pictures
    With some stills from my on board camera. Rode a lane in Warnford in Hampshire, found it on the online definitive maps. All my off roady friends were busy and as my road bike currently has no engine in it, I was desperate for motorbike action, so took the XR to this lane to have a look see...
  4. What are your favorite motorbike songs?

    Chatter
    Ask people on the street to name their favourite ‘motorbike song’, and chances are they lean more to Highway to Hell than Little Honda - beards, leather jackets and Hells Angels-types, not the chirpy 60s tunes some of us grew up with. Here at Bikesure, we want to change public opinion of biker...
  5. Hand guards

    Africa Twin
    I've searched the forum but can't find a definitive answer. I'm after some hand guards for my RD03. I'd like the perch mounted ones as handlebar space is a bit tight. I've always thought the originals look a bit clunky, but more critically even David Silver want £71 plus delivery for a pair. Can...
  6. Clutch adjustment

    Transalp
    Is there a definitive way of adjusting the clutch? Since changing the cable I cannot get it set right for correct engagement of the gears. When I start the bike I let her warm up for a minute or two and then engage 1st to start off and nearly always feel as if the gears dont quite mesh right...
  7. How long is your shock?

    Dominator / FMX
    Right, seems there is a bit of a mystery out there as to which model has the longer or shorter shock, so I thought it might be a good Idea to start a new thread on the subject. The idea being if you have access to a rear shock you can measure and you know exactly what model it is off post it...
  8. Air Screw sense on AT

    Africa Twin
    I have been trying to adjust the air screw on my 2001 AT on either side of the 2 3/8 turns out, and it seems to make little difference. So that I can at least have an idea of what I am doing, could someone tell me which way it works? Does unscrewing it make the mixture richer or leaner? I have...
  9. when you fit a more free flowing exhaust on a motorbike why does it ...

    Chatter
    tend to lean things up? ( 4 stroke ) Ok ..I understand that a more free flowing exhaust will allow more exhaust gasses to vacate the combustion chamber but why would that "lean" the mixture as the void will simply be replace by fresh fuel/air mix from the carb/injector on the next induction...
  10. Transalp 700 Chain - definitive length required

    Transalp
    The time has come for my Transalp 700 to need a new chain. - but I'm a mite unsure as to the number of links required. Pretty certain it's 118 links - the official Honda Shop Manual says "Standard Links: 118 links" - but the DID and RK part numbers quoted just below in the Shop Manual give the...

  13. Definitive RD07 caliper replacement list

    Africa Twin
    I thought that starting this thread would help AT owners with replacing their rotting Nissin calipers... New Nissin Calipers will cost £250 + EACH from Honda and im guessing that doesnt include the seals and pistons... From my experience and research , the L/H caliper can be replaced with a...

  17. Seeking the definitive 'windscreen' solution

    Africa Twin
    Okay, I have NEVER had a bike where I was happy with the wind protection. The AT is no exception, and I am determined to get this sorted. I have limped along for two years with a Touratech spoiler stuck on the screen, which I have taken off/put back on/fiddled with from time to time. This...
  18. Tyres - The Definitive List

    Africa Twin
    Seeing as every biking internet forum has a tyre thread started every week, I thought it might be as well to generate a comprehensive list of tyres that fit the Africa Twin. Then we could put it in the Tech Data section, and refer newbies to it. So here's a rough guide for us to build on; Road...
