    Dear all, Lately I have been experiencing some nasty issue with the RD07 AT (1995). This issue popped up when driving for 30 km’s at around 130 km/h. Suddenly, the bike started to loose power and couldn’t maintain that speed. I stopped and couldn’t start it again. After a while it ran again...

    Here’s one for ye, So I was cursing at 120kph and then the engine cut out, it was exactly like I hit the kill switch. The engine died instantly. I tough it was the CDI but there two of them and if you loose one you loose only one cylinder not two. Possibly both of the CDIs blew at the same...

    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...

    Hey guys. 2002 RD07a just won't start and I would really appreciate any ideas. Used the bike about ten days ago and it ran faultlessly as it always has. Came to start it last weekend and it was running rough. Took some work with the throttle to keep it idling after initial start but it then...
