    O’Neal Element Boots are some of the most popular among off-roading enthusiasts. And there are a few good reasons for that. First – they feature premium design, high-quality materials, and have a durable construction without breaking your bank. Second – they offer good protection to your feet in...

    My ‘93 Transalp 600 was putting out 16 volts when I bought it a few months ago, and had had some meltdown in the distant last. It had an Electrexworld reg/rec on it. This morning I fitted a brand new aftermarket reg/rec to it. Wired it up, mounted it on a nice alloy heat sink plate of my own...

    Hello folks I'm hoping you can help me pinpoint the cause of a peculiar looking issue with the 700. A bit of background; I've had the bike for a couple of years and recently had the engine rebuilt by a Honda dealer to repair a stripped output shaft. The splines the sprocket mounts onto had...

    This might not interest anyone, except those with some spare Nonfango panniers. It might not interest them either, but hey! :D Just received my newly ordered Givi pannier brackets for my new to me 700. as I had the nonfango panniers, the made up brackets as well and these were last fitted to my...

  6. Dominator / FMX
    Morning All, I was wondering if someone could measure the internal diameter of the tail pipe exit on the dominator exhaust for me please? I got my domi scrambler running at the weekend but it's ear bleed loud so I want to design a baffle to go in the cans I'm running. From reading other posts...

    Was doing a routine check and found that the front axle holder was broken and the nuts on the studs were so loose that they could come off by hand. Anyway as I do not have torque wrench I managed to snap 1 stud off and then was trying to put a temporary support plate which caused the other stud...

    I wanted to get rid of the sticky spray lube for the chain and intended to build my own chain oiler.<br> My main objectives were: low tech, independent from motor vacuum or electricity/electronics. full manual control of the amount of oil being applied, depending on road or weather conditions...
  9. Africa Twin
    Hi Managed to get a few hours in the man cave before the big day and had issues fitting the OEM airbox on my RD07A. As noted by others the connecting rubbers from airbox to carb inlets can shorten with heat and fuel. The result is they are now too short :( These are the rubbers from another...
  10. Africa Twin
    As the title states, is there a chance to adapt the different bits in/around the carburetors from a later model Africa Twin (RD07/a, which are noticeably less thirsty) to an earlier RD03, in order to make it a bit more fuel efficient? I'm not fully aware of their design/layout differences, so...
  11. Africa Twin
    For the CRF1000L Africa Twin, I have been reading that damage to the frame may entail complete frame replacement, as there is no rear subframe. In addition, I get the impression that the Honda oem accessory bars, are just that, and not implied by Honda to be crash protection. If this is the...
  12. Chatter
    Greetings from Denmark. A few months I posted a picture of my sons latest project. This one has been on hold as jnr has spent all his money getting his other one sorted. I donated a pair of CX silencers as the originals are donald ducked and told jnr he can have them if he can make em fit so...
  13. Africa Twin
    Hi I've just acquired this exhaust for my RD07a and noticed that the bracket is different from the one currently on the bike. On the new one the rear bracket is much longer, I'm guessing to fit directly to the rear subframe. The original one looked like this below (not mine - web image)...

    the first prototype of honda transalp google translation from italian magazine "It was 1985 when the Japanese engineers began to design the first prototype of what would have been the heir to the XVL750R, but with a completely different connotation. From an old press kit '97, emitted during...

    Hi Gents, In May I have done a beautiful trip through Germany and return (2000km). Before leaving I changed a rear tyre and was surprised to hear a bearing was starting to fail. I was sure they did not have much mileage (and I bought and rebuilt the wheel 2 years ago). I thought they wanedt to...
  16. Dominator / FMX
    Hi,Honda NX650 1994 RD02 here, I was about to change front brake pads and while taking old ones out those two tabs' fall off from piston tops I put one back in place here ^ just to show you where it was.The thing is, that those tabs don't stay in place any more, it falls down if I put brake...
  17. Africa Twin
    I'm keen to change the rather inadequate standard bash plate for something bigger that provides far more protection to the front of the engine and frame etc. similar to what came as standard on the xrv. In my opinion this is one of the very few design/equipment failings on the new bikes (heated...
  18. Transalp
    i called into the Ace Cafe today - it was 'Adventure and Overland' day or something like that. I had a look at Rally Raid Products' "CB500X Adventure" and it's a great looking bike - possibly a (non-official) successor to the Transalp with a parallel twin motor in the same way that the Africa...
  19. Africa Twin
    Any one been fiddling yet I went out this morning for a run but froze so came back early and decided to adjust a few things. first was the throttle free play there's far too much for my liking the two demonstrators were the same that was an easy adjustment, the gear lever was a bit low another...
  20. For Sale / Wanted
    Excellent condition bike with just (35664) on the clock. Selling as I really need to make room in my garage. I Just replaced all the caliper pistons and seals last week. Replaced the 'terrible tiny' indicators with the original design units. Currently, the side stand light is not going out but...
