  1. Brake pads have eaten my front caliper

    Africa Twin
    After having some hastles with my back brake, decided to properly service the front calipers too. Glad I did as it appears that there was some corrosion creeping in behind the dust seals pushing them out to jam the pistons (had a job getting them out). I've stripped them down and cleaned them up...

    For Sale / Wanted
    Well, since deciding to keep my TA, I will be needing a new front caliper. Corrosion has eaten the material around the dust seals and they are starting to both pop out!! Doesn't affect braking, but does affect longevity! So, please only offer if your caliper is in good condition. It would...
  3. Big Thanks to Mr Chad

    Chatter
    For his kind offer of straightening my brake pedal. I went up to his house today (and didn't get eaten;)) and he directly started to strip my ol'Buffalo down to get the brake pedal off, and then with much patience and an enormous prying bar he sorted it all out for me, I now have a happy hip:D...

  15. Biscuits

    Chatter
    Given the recent scandal wherein the Prime Minister would not nominate his favourite biscuit for a national newspaper (though what WAS Nick Clegg thinking of by plumping for a Rich Tea?!?!?) it is plain that biscuits are a matter of great strategic importance. Therefore I feel I should bring...
  16. My disc ate my caliper.

    Africa Twin
    I replaced my front disc (OEM), with a custom wave disc on my RD03 a couple months back. After replacing the disc and the pads, I started getting squealing from the front end, typical of a set of pads that needed to be replaced (even though I just replaced them.) After a week of thinking that...

    The original idea was to have a post retirement sauree and take six weeks to do Alaska and the Dempster/Dalton highways on the Varadero but alas the offer of a new job has curtailed that for another time. Sooooooo I have permission from SWMBO to take a month and travel around Canada and the...
  20. touratech rack extension

    Varadero
    Later models Varaderos have an absolutely crap rack that is next to impossible to get secure places to fit bungees or luggage straps. So, I took a chance on an offer from Iainnic in the sale/wanted forum and bought a Touratech rack extension for a TA700 hoping it would fit my 07 Vara. Good news...
