    Experimenting with the 700 sumpguard
  2. Bodgers Corner
    I needed some new grommets for my bash plate, and while another member here kindly sent me some along with a sprocket cover I bought from him I managed to destroy them by spraying them with stuff to try to soften up the rubber a bit (they were on their way out anyway). Undeterred and still...
  3. Africa Twin
    thought i would just add a few picks of what i did luggage wise and lessons if learnt on my last coast to coast trip. the trip itself was not seriously hard-core, but dealing with weight solo on and especially ofroad is always a challenge and of coarse a serious handicap. all im busy doing is...
  4. For Sale / Wanted
    From an engine I purchased in 1996 from a breaker to provide parts for a project that I never completed, I brought an Africa Twin instead and these have sat in a dry garage for the last 15 years The engine came from a stolen recovered bike, still have the breakers receipt and postage label...

    In a thread about charging and reg rec monitoring posted last week I mentioned buying one of these, 12v Battery Charge Warning Light, voltage indicator on eBay (end time 15-Dec-10 21:25:35 GMT) It is an LED that changes colour and flashes according to the voltage applied. It arrived today so I...
  6. Varadero
    Had some barkbusters put on the Varadero. I didn't fit them but they say they were a pain to fit. This morning was frosty and I had bought some dry as a bone muffs so I decided to fit them, after trying to fit them backwards way round and inside out I did manage. They fit well over the...

    I've been looking at replacing the standard bars with Renthals on my 650 TA. I've read through loads of posts and the only person who appears to have fitted anything other than the Dakar High (Enduro High 613 bend) is Mudwiz - but that was ages ago. So, measuring the standard bars to...
  8. Transalp
    Hi team Time to pick your brains again. Ive just fitted BT45's for the first time and am now experimenting trying to find the best set up for road riding. Got it in the fully hard position at moment but wont be testing any extreme angles of lean until the tyres are scrubbed in. Any advise...
  9. Varadero
    Sorry to raise this one again. I know that screen issues on the Vara have been discussed countless times in here before! After following all the threads on here re Vara screens, and having tried the alternative Givi Flip screen, I invested and fitted the MRA Vario screen, as from the Info on...
  10. Dominator / FMX
    Building a Better Dominator Article by Ron Grant, "SideTrack" – Motorcycle Adventure Magazine, Australia. August – September 1998, Issue 20. What works, what doesn't on the way to eight extra horses and a vastly improved suspension package. Ron Grant from Shogun Honda in Brisbane has spent...
  11. Bodgers Corner
    Having a Scottoiler fitted to both of my bikes, I, along with others, occasionally get trouble with them either not working because the end feed pipe has become blocked, it has fallen off or been snagged when reinstalling the rear wheel. The twin injector seems to be much more prone any to the...
  12. Transalp
    Hi everybody and many safe miles/km's in 2010! Since riding in these dark ,cold and wet (snow) months is reduced to almost zero its a good time to update the 700. So i ordered the small engine guard panel to protect the oil reservoir and the folding gearlever from Touratech. When installing...
  13. Mechanical Advice
    HI guys, right i,m playing around with the idea of fitting some extra lighting to my XR250R, 90% of my commute is on unlit country roads with if the fancy takes me a couple of trails aswell. At the moment im experimenting with just a couple of head torch,s attached to two small box section...
  14. Chatter
    Bit self-indulgent but I have been experimenting with this innerweb thingy and I am creating a website about my zebra. If anyone has pics of the zebra they can send me, please PM me and I'll give you my email address. You'll see I have tried to nick a few already from the site but they are...
  15. Africa Twin
    I have recently acquired a 1997 AT which is a great bike except...I find that when riding it fully loaded with Givi top box & panniers, it develops a pretty alarming weave, especially in high winds (60 mph+). Have had suspension & bushes checked & all seems fine. My bike shop suggests...
  16. Africa Twin
    I was experimenting with speed v economy on my 01 AT yesterday and remembered much talk of not being able to rely on the accuracy of our speedometers, with the expectation that they might have an under-read built in so that they under rather than over estimate speed. I have the standard RD07a...
  17. Africa Twin
    as a matter of interest, i have been experimenting with jet sizes in my rd03 650. i acquired bobA's rd03, which has the filter box removed and a large k&n filter fitted. along with a racing exhaust, this upset the cv carb bigtime, resulting in a bike which wouldn't pull the skin off a rice...
  18. Mechanical Advice
    Not long passed my test and I'm picking up riding tips all the time. Read the various mags avidly and try out the techniques, although I guess a TA isn't quite what the bike journos have in mind when writing articles on body positioning etc. Mostly I've been reading and trying roadracing style...
  19. Dominator / FMX
    Just experimenting with posting pictures. Hope this comes out OK :) BTW this should be a piture of my bike, Dolly.
