  1. RD07 Thermostat/ cooling issue.

    Africa Twin
    OK so I'm on a roll now asking questions! Bike warms up lovely when stationary, temperature gauge showing where it should be however, as soon as I start riding gauge drops to zero. I'm guessing that either a/ Thermostat knackered b/ Thermostat doesn't exist. If either a or b I need to replace...
  2. Wanted: LED replacement bulb for rear tail light

    For Sale / Wanted
    Has anyone found a replacement for the Stanley 12v 21/5v (#34906-MBB-611) tail light bulb? I've been searching Amazon, eBay, AliExpress and Google with no luck. You can find single filament bulb replacements but the two filaments don't seem to exist. Thanks- Harry

  5. XL650 bolt kits, do they exist?

    I've found kits on for the 600 and the 700 but nothing for the 650, I'm sure they are similar but I'd rather get the correct kit and a source for individual bolts as I need them. I'm in the UK but happy to pay for shipping.
  6. Who makes the best repro stickers for an RD03?

    Africa Twin
    I am extremely touchy when it comes to reproduced stickers. Been working for 20 years as an art director and can easily make the difference between superb and the rest. I can reproduce the logos with Illustrator myself (been using it since 1987), but perhaps good exemples already exist. Who has...

  10. Rattling sound at 2000 & 4000 RPM....

    Africa Twin
    Hi all, Recently, my 2001 AT started to produce rattling sound when I throttle exactly at 2000 and 4000 rpm, +/-100rpm. The sound will be gone when the engine runs at other rpms. This seems very much like the resonance of some mechanical parts, as it is excited by the above 2 rpms, probably at...

I'm in the process of planning a trip on my 25 year old Transalp without breakdown cover and would like to find either of the threads / forums if...
  12. Super Villain Garage

    Just a little something to stimulate discussion... You’re a budding super villain, looking to make your name in the villain world. Money is no object, but you don’t yet rule the world so some practicalities exist. At your sprawling estate in the Cotswolds you only have a 5 car garage, which you...

    Excuse my ignorance, is it possible / easy to remove the baffles on the standard exhaust ? If so how? Alternatively, which is the loudest aftermarket exhaust that will fit this bike, to let other road users know that you do actually exist and you are approaching !!!!

  20. Crankcase cover gaskets - do they exist?

    I am right in thinking that there's a gasket underneath the right hand (clutch side) crankcase cover - no? The Haynes manual makes reference to it on page 2.44 ("locate the new gasket onto the dowels..."), so why can't I see it in the fiche or find it in the electronic parts catalogue at...
