  1. Africa Twin
    My AT has a set of bars on that are too short for the handgrips(a cheap quick replacement by the previous owner). I have the originals but they are slightly bent, so rather than powder coating them, I was lookig at the Renthal Enduro high bars. Question is...will the original bar ends and...

    Hi guys, a quick one. I've been trying to resolve my XRs fueling problem for a while now. It's main issue is that it conks out. If I rev it and let the throttle snap back, it tends to simply die. Whereas if I gently roll off, it stays running. I'm running #168 main and #62 pilot jets, clip...

    Is there any clutch cable that has the same ends as the stock cable but longer to fit a RD03? I herd that the RD07 might be the same but longer ? Traveling The World Two Up on a 1989 Africa Twin 650. Updates Here: www.instagram.com/Africa.Twin.Adventures www.facebook.com/DHealy91

    Lots of researching and can't figure out what would be best for crack repairs. Front fairing on my 97 xrv has 2 cracks leading down from windscreen. 1 crack dead ends into bolt hole from top 1/2inch long, the other opposite side from top down for about 2 inches. Never done repairs on this stuff...

    So I picked up my new to me RD07 a week ago in Ireland. I'm in Italy now, after about 1,000 miles, and the speedometer has stopped working. It was a bit "bouncy" before, but then about 1 hour after I spray washed the bike, the speedo stopped all together. I checked the cable on both ends and it...

    I am lucky enough to have both the original exhaust and a laser exhaust on my 1995 rd07. They both came with the bike. I like both, even though I prefer the laser one. But it is loud. Very loud. I suspect that it has been modified at some point. From YouTube I see that there is a piece inside...

    Has anybody else fitted one of these? If so, did you have problems? I have! The slots In the regulator did not allow the studs to pass through. Today I was near their factory so I popped in and one of the chaps there widened the slots. Tonight I go to fit it and the studs now go through the...

    The nipple ends of these blighters often snap off. There might be a source of replacement spigot / nipple mouldings ... missus. Anyone able to supply similarly precise dimensions of a detached 'Long One' (Steady now, Alias) ? Thank You !
  11. Mechanical Advice
    Hi all I'm looking for some help on this. I've bought some acerbis handguards which look like the rally pros and trying to fit them onto my Ta. I've got heated grips already fitted since buying bike. The heated grips have no distinguishable markings at all. I will take pictures and post up when...

    Anyone used these? With the cylinder head locating tab in the correct postion they don't seem to allow the clamp/clip with the tab to line up properly. It ends up fouling on the valve cover and slanting diagonally across the rubber. There are two different clamps and I have them installed the...

    Hey all I'm stripping down my engine as the big ends are knocking. Having taken the heads and cylinders off I have noticed so much of it is rusty. Even the crank and cams...... Looks like it was recently honed as well as I can still see the marks. Guess it was sitting in pieces for a while...

    Hey Folks I have (ahem) scuffed my handguards once or twice, on narrow garage doors and tarmac. The standard plastic ones seem a bit flimsy really. Wondered if anyone had recommendations for something a bit stronger, and ideally with a bit more space behind it. Anyone tried Barkbusters? They...
