  1. Africa Twin
    Last July the AT let me down a mile and a half from home. I rode to the local BP for a pastie, and then the bike wouldn’t start. Nothing. The AA man turned up in due course and to his credit he figured out what I already suspected, which was that the Meta immobiliser had ‘immobilised’ me. Not...
  2. Africa Twin
    I have noticed a faint squeaking sound coming from my bike. It sounds like it's from the front sprocket area but of course could be anywhere. At higher speeds wind noise totally covers it. It is 'in time' with the power pulses from the engine but disappears if the clutch is pulled in and...

    Hi all, First post, but having read a lot here I'm sure I'll get some good heads up. Last time my TA had the valves set was by a main dealer at 16000 miles. I'm reasonably sure that at least the rears were done because within a couple of hundred miles I had to get in myself and renew the o seal...

  11. Recommended Dealers/Service Providers/Campsites
    I've recently moved out of London for a bit of country life, and one of the things I'm going to miss the most from London is the awesome service I got from Dave Wilkins in Penge. My Africa Twin died last night on the M1, and I had it dragged home to Bovingdon. So now I'm looking for a service...

Most people have a very basic knowledge of wiring but I have been using a very simple, and...
