  2. End of an era [emoji20]

    Transalp
    Today I had a drive up to Wigan and sealed the deal to part exchange my 700 Transalp for a nice and shiny, nearly new 650 V Strom. Ive had the Alp for nigh on 5 years and have loved every minute of my time with it. However over the last few months Ive been thinking that its maybe time to let the...
  3. Various RD04 Parts

    What's it worth?
    Hi all, unfortunately my RD04 is RIP, after a head on at 60mph with an overtaking car in my lane (on a blind bend after midnight [emoji35]) Anyway, as I’m not likely to be replacing it with an XRV (or any bike in the near future) all the parts I had are up for sale. I’ll take any reasonable...
  4. Rear subframe corrosion

    Dominator / FMX
    The first thing to say is that my Dommie is very much a winter hack, ridden in all weathers, rarely cleaned, not a concours show bike by any stretch... so it’s not a massive surprise to see some corrosion on an 18 year old bike. Question is: what to do about it! The pic attached shows a hole in...
  5. Fuel cut off relay / wiring question

    Africa Twin
    Hi guys Quick question, The fuel cut off relay connector has 3 wires, what one is ground and what one is constant live or switched live ? I think the middle wire is ground and the two outer wires are switched lives, am I right ? And I should add that I want to wire a voltmeter clock to...

  7. 48,000 miles. Valve clearances?

    Dominator / FMX
    My '99 Dommie is getting close to 48,000 miles, I've had it 4 years and about 12,000 of those miles. It's due for an oil and filter change which I can do myself but I wonder if it's time for more complex work, like getting the valve clearances checked / adjusted, which I couldn't do myself. What...
  8. For Sale: 1997 RD07a donor bike/ resto?

    Bikes For Sale / Wanted
    Hi guys Unfortunately I've made the decision to offer this to someone else to take on to either have as a donor bike or to restore should they have the time and expertise. I work away so would mean paying labour on top of parts, and on top of that I'm not known for holding on to my bikes so I...
  9. Choke won't stay choked

    Dominator / FMX
    My Dommie's choke won't stay on, I pull in the lever for cold starts but then it just creeps open again from the vibes before the engine is warmed up. Does anyone know how to tighten it so it only closes when I want it to? The last vehicle I had with a manual choke was a 1971 Mini! The choke...

  13. I suppose I can count myself lucky!

    Transalp
    Riding home from the Haggs Bank Rally on Sunday the chain snapped on the Alp whilst in the outside lane on the A1 M.[emoji33] I was 90 miles from home and all alone ?. After a few phone calls a mate came and picked me and the bike up in a van just as it was getting dark. When I got home I...
  14. Clutch Question...

    Africa Twin
    Hi all, I have never had this happen in 25k of owning my bike. The only thing I have done to the bike in the last 5k was an oil change. I changed from 10w40 to 10w50 because I'm heading south and the temperature is increasing.... A few days ago I was riding at night and got stuck in...
  15. Fuel consumption before and after de-cat.

    Transalp
    Last year I did a solo 3000 miles trip on my bog standard 700 Alp around Europe taking in France, Italy, Slovenia, Hungary, Austria, Germany etc. The bike was loaded to the gunnels, topbox, panniers plus tent, mattress and sleeping bag. Where possible I was cruising at about 80 mph. Italy was...
  16. Rode off road!

    Dominator / FMX
    Having recently replaced the Bridgy BT45 tyres on my Dommie with a more dirt-friendly Conti Escape, I took a detour off road today. Nothing strenuous, I don't have the skills for it, just some marked Byways around Hertfordshire. Good fun, and a useful escape route if I'm ever a fugitive on the...
  17. What have you done with yours today?

    Africa Twin
    Mine is still on the jack as I resolve the previous owners bodges but I wondered what other people were doing with theirs? Almost done... Just a few odds and sods to be found! [emoji2] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Africa Twin
    Hi All, So I got the XRV650 Tested on a Dyno, There was two issues according to the results & also what the Dyno instructor told me. 1: The main jet is running rich. So from 50kph - 120kph it ran ok but from 120kph onwards it gets richer. The Dyno instructor said it will need a new main...
  20. Quick Question about Fairing

    Africa Twin
    Hi All, I have a small crack on the front mud guard on the AT, I wanted to use some pvc or abs cement to melt-weld it. However my knowledge of plastic is rubbish and I do not know if the mud guard Is ABS or PVC? I'm guessing ABS but would like to be sure before buying the cement. Can...
