  2. Daft question (it is..there's no denying it..) about the fuse box (RD04)

    Africa Twin
    How the heck do I open it? The entire bike is dead and I suspect (aka I hope) a blown main fuse but I can't get into the box and whilst I could force...I don't really want it. There's what appears to be a tab on the "front" (that's the say the side of the box closest to the rear of the bike). Is...

  4. Coolant hose replacement

    How to.....
    In a fit of madness I decided to replaced all nine (yes, nine), of the coolant hoses on my RD07, except the one that runs to the expansion tank. They're all listed on the Honda "Radiator/shroud" parts fiche, except the "water pipe" which, for reasons known only to Honda, has its own fiche...
  5. Stupidity at its worst

    Chatter
    Stupidity at its worst. Our (Overpaid and brainless) politicians here in Sweden have decided that in the name of equality between the sexes, the words he (han) and she (hon) shall be substituded with the neutral word "Hen". I know I'm getting old, and my ideas are not proactive enough but I...

  7. One rule for them and another for the rest of us

    Chatter

  9. Are we all closet GS owners ?

    Chatter
    Would you really prefer a BMW GS adventure (Either Model). Seems to me if i was going on a serious tour and had a choice i would go with the GS . I like the AT, like the looks like the cost like the ride position but if i could have got as good a Gs for the same price would i have gone for it ...
  10. Do It Yourself..............

    Transalp
    Entrusted a tyre chain to fit my tyres to the alp. Took bike in not just the wheels. Tyres fitted after 3hr+. They nearly had the bike off the paddock stand at one point...... Noticed a bit of wobble on way back from tyre place at about 90. Just thought new tyres that need scrubbing in and...
