  1. Africa Twin
    I dropped my @ this morning wheeling it back out of the garage - smashed the screen and chipped the faring on the frame of the garage door. Unhappy doesn't even start to explain how I feel :-( Chris

    Okay so the as you know i am planning on rebuilding Anubis after the big trip and part of this is I need a new front faring. No question there (lots of little damaged spots / cracks/ scraps really make is not worth fixing. So i will replace it BUT I am not sure which way to go yet. Stock, fully...

    There's this small little place in a place called Molesey, near Hampton Court (KT8), which specialise in crash repair. I thought this bloke called Jino was worth a mention on the basis that he's totally amazing at paint. A few years back I gave him a XL600V radiator cowl faring in blue to spray...

    Hi all another question? is it usual to have a petrol coming from the breather pipes under the faring? i noticed it the other day, when i bring it in the back off my garden i have to bring it up a short but steep ramp, so i guessed it may just be an over flow from the tank(It stops fairly soon...

    The Triumph Tiger 800XC IS an adventure bike. There is no question. It is more than capable off-road and a complete hoot in twisty back country lanes. It has the smoothest gear box and a totally forgiving engine. Whatever gear you happen to be in, if you decide to overtake the car in front...

Might get me some vinyl the sticky type to cut some from...
  8. Varadero
    I dont know what else to call it . I'm asking about the small lockable bit,s-an-bobs box on the top of the faring throttle side. Will it fit older models of the Vara ,mines V5 and I would like to try and fit one as they look very useful for those little bits you need on those long rides. Cheers...
  9. Africa Twin
    Hello all, I had a small crash which resulted in breaking most of the front end stuff... plastics, visor, fairing bracket... now I'm thinking about my options... buy used parts, buy boano replacements, go for ralley faring,... since I need a new fairing bracket which holds the plastics...

    Honda just does not build the bike i want, so I'm thinking I will have to build it myself, so I have a few questions. Has anyone fitted a NX tank and faring to a XR650L, and does an XR650L rear wheel have a cush drive? Any help or suggestions would be great.

  14. Transalp
    I'm trying to make up my mind as to whether I'm going to sell my 650 and get a 600 due to the different shaped faring suiting me better. But I've not tried a 600 out yet, I tried at a dealers but they didn't do test rides. So if anyone's willing to let me take theirs for a spin I'd be very...

    Went to get my brand new Honda Touring screen fitted to my 06 TA, when they realised that it has a slight smudge mark on it from when they put the old air filter in the same box as the screen after they had serviced it. Since i didnt get the screen fitted at the same time as the service (due to...
