  1. Africa Twin
    I need to get a spare key blank. There are 2 kinds listed as OEM for the RD07A (Type 1 and Type 2) and the difference between the two is denoted by the letter stamped on your existing key. My problem is, the one existing key I have doesn't have anything stamped on it. Nuttin, nada. And I don't...
  2. For Sale / Wanted
    '99 model in absolutely fantastic condition! Mate of mine in Oswestry is selling this bike. He bought it early last year after riding mine. He's cleaned it after every ride he's taken it on and he's a fussy so and so:thumbright: Anyway, give him a ring if you want any more info, meanwhile here...
  3. Bodgers Corner
    After both bolts which hold the exhaust plate on completely sheared, and after drilling out what was left of the studs, and then trying to tap a new thread into the remains of the metalwork... I discovered a jubliee clip with a protruding 5mm stud welded on, and the rest was plain sailing. I...
  4. Africa Twin
    Ok, anyone know where i can get the exact connector that the dash on the @ has. i want to wire my new koso dash up and put it into the honda socket so i can just plug it into the existing loom and not have cut and chop the loom
  5. Chatter
    Certainly not on the scale of Boris & Kitpeds but I thought I'd have a go at roofing last weekend. Here's how it went! Firstly, empty the important stuff out of the garage; Next, up on the roof to remove the plastic sheet that was temporarily battoned over the existing roof as a temproary...
  6. Transalp
    Hi all I've just bought a 2002 Transalp and here to introduce myself. Had my licence for 30 years since I was 17. I've decided to save my Bandit 1250 for "Sunday best" and rides with girlfriend on pillion, while the Transalp will be mostly for getting to work. This should help with overall...
  7. Africa Twin
    I have just ordered a diddy headlight for it, the loom is pretty much sorted and if I can get the existing speedo to work properly, I will only need a small idiot light box rather than a new speedo that has them integrally fitted. Then it is getting painted black with the legend "sumo" on it...
  8. For Sale / Wanted
    I've just fitted a pair of heated grips to my bike, so these are surplus to requirements. These are the ones that velcro round your existing grips, so can be removed in summer time. Some guys also use these for pillion riders, popping them on the rear grab rail. Bought under a year ago and used...

  10. Insurance
    As you know I am changing my Vara for an XT660r. The XT is a significantly different bike to the Vara and in most respects you would think it would be significantly lower risk to insure. Not for my brokers / underwriters it's not. They won't insure it on my existing policy but will quite happily...
  11. Transalp
    Are early transalps prone to oil pressure faults? Got a problem with my 1990 transalp, bought it with a worn camshaft on front cylinder and put this down to poor maintainence as rear cylinder was mint. I've fitted a new head and second hand cam to front cylinder and all was well for 150 miles...
  12. Product Reviews
    Just thought I'd post up a small review of the Sena SMH10 intercoms I've recently bought you can buy the units either singly or as a twin pack, I bought two single units as they were on offer and the supplier had sold out of twin packs. Helmet Fitting, the kit comes supplied with a choice...

  15. Transalp
    Just a note to let you know that if you fit the Oxford Mini Indicator set to the TA, it allows you to fit the Givi PL163/167 Pannier Rack without having to move or extend the indicator wiring and position. The indicators are small but very bright and legal. Work a treat straight into existing...

  17. XR
    Hi All, The exhaust on my 1992 XR250 (ME06 model) is a bit noisy for my liking and I'd like to make it quieter. It doesn't seem to be blowing anywhere and putting a rag over the end of the silencer quietens it down nicely. I've tried getting the baffles out but they seem to be stuck in there...
  18. Helmets
    Hi All, I have a Shark Evoline, which is the dogs :happy9::happy9:. The best thing about it is the fact that it can be worn (legally) in both open and closed position. The only two disadvantages are that the sunvisor is not long enough, and ends just at my eyeline when riding the transalp...
  19. Everything Orange - KTM
    So my mate Steve has a '05 Adventure S which he loves but has often thought what would he replace it with? The answer is another '05 Adventure S....... We went a long way to get this beauty yesterday and were a little apprehensive until we saw it as the guy told us that it had only done...
