  1. Africa Twin
    Good evening I'm in the process of changing the front sprocket on my RD07a. I removed the sprocket cover and then the old sprocket. I was merrily cleaning all the old crud away before fitting the new one when this little fella dropped out. I have no idea where it goes so any help would be...
  2. I'd like to introduce myself....................
    I don't seem to have introduced myself when I joined in '11 (I think). My name is John, I live in sunny Queensland, tht's the north east portion of Australia about 300km north of the Tropic of Capricorn. I have 4 bikes, 3 that are running, including my '03 XL650V Transalp that I bought new in...
  3. Africa Twin
    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...
  4. Africa Twin
    Just dropped my AT today at slow rolling speed and thanks to those Rugged Road crash bars any serious damage was prevented. But the right one took a substantial hit and it absorbed all the force which resulted in it being slightly bent inwards. Is it possible to bend it back? I will post some...

    I've recently fitted a heated seat pad that santa dropped off for Xmas. I must say, I'm impressed, it was a touch under £40 delivered from the 'bay, so about the same price as mid range heated grips. It comes with the self adhesive heated pad, a load of wiring (most of which was chopped out &...
  8. Africa Twin
    Hi all, The penny has eventually dropped - I'll not be going to Mongolia or Morocco on my new Africa Twin or having 40,000 mile RTW experience :( But, do you really need to ride so far to have your own little adventure? :D Have a laugh at my latest silly video.....
  9. Chatter
    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...
  10. Africa Twin
    Hi all, Wondering if any of you has SW Motech, Givi or Heavy Duties crash bars? To be exact i'm asking those who already "tested" them (fallen, slided, dropped the bike)? Heavy Duties seem to be at a very reasonable price, but would really want to know about their durability and ruggedness in...
  11. Africa Twin
    1 month left on my policy that I had not made a claim on. Sold bike & so informed the company. They offered a £9 refund and a £50 charge for the "Admin"; net result I owe £41 to cancel. If I don't cancel and pay then they will cancel and send me the bill anyway. How can it cost £50 to type into...

    With some stills from my on board camera. Rode a lane in Warnford in Hampshire, found it on the online definitive maps. All my off roady friends were busy and as my road bike currently has no engine in it, I was desperate for motorbike action, so took the XR to this lane to have a look see...

  16. Chatter
    How many people drop their bikes just getting on the damn things. Was at the H Cafe bike night tonight and some old geezer had an XJR1200. My mate shouted "your bike"... I ran over and this old codger had dropped his bike next to mine. I had mine on the centre stand and luckily all that had...

  20. Dominator / FMX
    Hello all, I'm having a problem with the speedo on my Dominator, hopefully someone may be able to shed some light as to the likely cause. A few days ago the speedo stopped working. I removed the cable and found it was siezed up solid, not surprisingly, the plastic drive gear in the hub was...
