  2. Rocker cover gasket leak

    Africa Twin
    Is this a known issue with the AT? Noticed a puddle on my garage floor, been dreading finding out the cause but it just seems to be the rubber gasket. From what I can see it looks fine though and I'm confused as to why a fairly durable looking gasket could just fail suddenly. Best pic I...

    Stopped at the garage to buy some beer and noticed coolant dripping onto the floor. Got home and took bash plate off and have traced the leak to the underside of the radiator.

  11. Executive Loos

    Chatter
    Does anyone work in an institution that still had toilets reserves for executive use only? I was told earlier on today about someone who was spoken to as they had gone and used the loos on the executive floor in their place of work. I really thought that sort of thing was in the past.
  12. Lowering links.

    Varadero
    Morning, I have acquired some lowering links which should drop the bike by about 20mm but they came without any instructions. Looks easy enough and I can handle a spanner but I am slightly concerned once the last bolt drops out the suspension will end up on the floor!!:D I know I may need to...
  13. Lowering a.t.

    Africa Twin

  14. Bike lift tables

    Tools
    I see there are two basic designs. Scissor type where the table rises vertically or ones where the table moves backwards as it goes up. Anybody got any idea if one type is inherently more stable than the other or is it simply down to the size of the base on the garage floor?
  15. XL650 Fuel Valve (petcock)

    Transalp
    Hi, I was trying to remove the tank yesterday and the vacuum petcock was faulty and didn't turn off the petrol flow and fuel p*ssed all over the garage floor (and me!). Are these prone to faults? Should I get a new one or replace with a conventional valve? Thanks ........ Steve
  16. Where do these come from?

    Transalp
    I cleaned my 700 TA the other day, that much road grime on it that I had to use the pressure washer. Afterwards I found two of these rubber 'bumpers' on the floor. Does anybody know what they are for and where they go back? I've had a good luck but I can't see where they've come from. Cheers Karl
