  1. Africa Twin
    Hi :) I have an RD04 from 1990 with 67000kms on the clock. The last couple of days I have started to notice a scratching sound from the engine when I pull the clutch and let I roll to a traffic light or something. Everything sounds perfect in neutral and when driving that's why I am worried...

    Hi! I have this Africa Twin RD07 a -98 model. I bought it like 3 years a go and it had the knocking sound from then. I have replaced the cam chain tensioner and exhaust gaskets. Non off this did help. The sound is only there when driving when the engine get some resistance. When standing...

    My multi bike policy is due for renewal and I receive the instruction - it's risen from £269 for 4 Modern Classics to £410. My phone call reveals the cause, my truck driving day job (75k miles/year) has accumulated a few claims and suddenly I'm high risk. I explain that I've completed a few...

    As the title, when I'm driving with a dipped headlamp sometimes this will switch to mainbeam when I change gear. This will only last for a second and reverts back to dipped once the gearchange is completed. It does not happen with every gearchange and can occur in any gear moving up or down the...

    While the driving public may not have used dashboard camera systems in the past, that could change in the near future as drivers become more aware of the potential benefits. If you get into an accident or have another issue on the road, a dash cam may provide proof of what actually happened and...

    My 2001 Vara has a reoccurring problem. Whilst driving it suddenly loose all power and acts as it has ran out of fuel. And it keeps doing like that for some 50-100kms since it always happens when I'm on long distance drives with constant speed. If I stop and stand still it runs normal and...

    The BMW R NineT, anyone on this forum owns one or tested one? I saw the first IRL today, so there are not that many on the roads here, and even less for test driving. Just curious if they are any fun. /Kjell
