  1. RD02 Carb boot O-ring..

    Dominator / FMX
    I need to replace the large O-ring that sits between the carb boot and the head on my RD02. Does anyone know where I can find one as most of them are in the States or cost £10-£15 to post an O-ring that costs about £5...:( If anyone has a spare they would be prepared to sell, that would be...
  2. R/R swap, SH for FH (Mosfet)

    Africa Twin
    Replaced the SH with an FH at the weekend. SH Reg / Rec generator plugs..... A good source of 'tails' for the MOSFET http://www.easternbeaver.com/Main/main.html I get my FH's 'used' via Ebay. The States & Germany is usually best for price, even after postage on any of FH 01, 09, 010, 012 0r...
  3. How much extra power output

    Africa Twin
    Is there much extra power on an RD03 for lights etc? May be selling my concours c14 and would like to hookup the led driving lights it has on it to the AT. Also would like a couple accessories outlets . I have an eastern beaver fuse box setup I would run everything through. Thanks
  4. Eastern Beaver alternatives

    Africa Twin
    Is there much in the way of alternatives for the Eastern Beaver fuse box solutions and H4 relay kits out there??
  5. Cold start this Morning

    Africa Twin
    with no snow and a sunny warm week since a high of 24C on Easter Sunday, I thought it would be good to take the bike for my 20 mile commute to work this fine spring Morning:- So new RHS rad fitted, fresh coolant, and a rub down with an oily rag and left ready on the drive :- woke to -1C
  6. H.I.S.S. light not showing.

    Transalp
    I've been out today on the local Easter Egg charity run and although got a bit wet I enjoyed getting out on the bike and meeting up with old mates:thumbright: However on returning home and bedding down the Transalp I noticed that the HISS red light didn't show after removing the ignigtion key. 2...

    Ride Reports and Pictures
    A couple of pics from 2 quick tours of the Czech Republic(or at least the bit nearest us!) and a bit of Slovakia. I was actually searching for old eastern bloc aircraft, so not many scenic pics:toothy9: I won't bore you with pics of rotting MiGs etc ;-) Housing block in Dubnica(SK) Ostbloc...

  9. Mosfet Reg question

    Africa Twin
    Hi Just got myself the Mosfet upgrade from the states and harness from Eastern Beaver, question is the connection to the alternator with the three yellow wires has a white plastic connector similar to the original, is it worthwhile me bypassing this and just hardwiring the connection ? Thanks...
  10. Transalp CDI

    What's it worth?
    Now I've decided to sell my trusty TA600 I can dispose of the spares I kept "just in case". I have a Honda CDI unit from a 1994 XL600VR used but working fine- the only ones listed on ebay are pattern parts or genuine ones from eastern Europe at what seems like a horrendous price! What is one...
  11. Rectifier Upgrade Question

    Africa Twin
    I am finally getting around to upgrading the rectifier on my AT. I chose an FH008BA off of a CBR600 because it fits (it's actually thinner than the stock one) and it looks like the wiring is the same (two red, two green and three yellow). I've seen the offerings from Jim at Eastern Beaver...

  13. Looking to purchase my first TransAlp 700. After some advice

    Transalp
    Hi all. I'm from Coventry in the UK but have been travelling to Ukraine over the past few years as I am a photographer. I already own a VFR1200 which is a fantastic touring bike but would not cope with the poor roads in Eastern Europe. I want to keep the VFR and am considering a TransAlp 700...
  14. On my way down to the Stella...

    Travel
    Hi all, I'm going to be riding this year's Stella Alpina Rally and then meet up with a few friends and do some exploration of Italy. I plan to camp on the way down and take in as many mountain passes/scenic routes as possible. The route will be a bit of a long way round as I'd like to do as...
  15. Adriatic

    Travel
    Has anyone toured the eastern Adriatic coast? I'm thinking of taking the Bari-Durres ferry, and then touring up the coast through Dubrovnik and Split. Has anyone been there and done that, and is the t-shirt worth getting? Iain
