  1. Tank Off/On in less than 20 minutes!

    Transalp
    As those who do their own servicing/tinkering/botching have probably noticed, Haynes Book of Half Truths advises us to completely dislodge the fairing in order to remove the tank to access air filter, carbs, tappets, secret spark plugs etc. Although not a massively complicated task, it involves...

  3. Dealer rip off issues

    I noticed a post on the Vara forum mention BMW dealer rip offs. I'd like to point out Triumph are no exception to this. :oops: When in getting the EFI remapped for the race pipe I was told I'd best book in for my 12,000 miles service, I was advised take my wallet, when I enquired if it would...

  6. Dead icu

    Africa Twin

  7. fixed speedo gearbox (thanks Yeti)

    Transalp
    Its so easy for anyone with a non-functioning speedo - its not necessarily the cable as i found out. So i finally got round to taking the front wheel off today, after disconnecting the brake calipers (hang them with cable ties out of the way), and the speedo cable. The speedo drive hub or...
