  1. Plain clutch plates question - sharp edges down ?

    Transalp
    While I am waiting for new clutch plates to arrive, I thought I would put the clutch back together for practice. The Haynes manual explains almost everything except which way the plain plates go on. On page 91, paragraph 28 it says put the clutch centre on the bench and put the plates on. Photo...

  11. Do I need a new brake disk?

    Africa Twin
    Possibly a stupid question, but do I need a new brake disk? On the way back from Scotland yesterday (around 350ish miles) I noticed the back brake making an odd noise occasionally when coming to a stop (though oddly not while riding at any speed). Seemed intermittent and couldn't immediately...

  13. Thanks Heidenau

    Africa Twin
    Just ready to replace my worn K60s. They've done just over 13,000 miles. The front is more worn than yours in the pic Tramp. I have similar tread left in the middle but less on the edges. The rear has 4mm left in the middle and 6mm at the very edge, however after a spirited early morning thrash...
  14. its my turn to start a tyre thread

    Transalp
    sorry to be repetitive guys, but i`m lost... front wheel dunlop 607/rear wheel anakee. so, the dunlop has worn in a strange way so that the centre is nearly done for with the edges of the tyre still meaty. (probably due to two long trips, fully loaded up on mostly straight motorways). the rear...
  15. cheeky question -- car tyres

    Wheels, Tyres & Tubes
    Yeah I know this is a bike forum but there's a lot of knowledgeable people here so bear with me ;) Car tyres need 1.6mm of tread across at least 75% of the width. Any rules for the remaining 25%? I've got a set of tyres (Conti Premium Contact -- don't buy 'em!) that have worn to almost...
  16. Drilling holes in your lid and aerodynamics: help!

    Helmets
    My Caberg Trip is a nice lid, with the minor exception of me not being able to see where I'm going. The visor mists horribly, which makes misting spectacles even worse! So, I got me Dremel out and drilled 4 holes in the visor. Two at the top, toward the edges straight in. Then two more...

  19. My seat is a pain in the ****!!

    Africa Twin
    Hi All. The seat on my AT has the original base, but the prevoius owner has had it recovered and stuffed with something harder than foam. Also, the edges are very square and 'dig' in to the inside for my legs, so after a while, the circulation to my legs is cut off.:( Has anyone bought a new...
  20. No new tiger for me

    Transalp
