  1. Balancing Carbs

    Africa Twin
    I've Had my Rdo7 coming on 3 years and have never touched it as runs like a swiss watch, The fuelling is nigh on perfect I would say for carbs. But is it possible to get an absolute linear tick over or am I being too anal as it is very slightly uneven?
  2. Decat question.

    Hello peeps, I've just fitted an o2 sensor eliminator, and I have to say the bike really has responded well to it, the fuelling is unbelievably smooth. I was also after a louder soundtrack ( not offensive, just nice & deep ), and was going to fit a decat pipe, leaving the standard silencer. I...

    Africa Twin
    Apologies for all the new topics - I'm hoping to get some answers to some of them! I have done some diagnosis after my RD04 - RD07 engine transplant, and have the following: When performing a spark plug test, I only get a spark on the initial crank of the engine - there is no repeated sparking...
  7. Fuelling Problem??

    Africa Twin
    A couple of times recently I've experienced what feels like the engine cutting out. Both times it has been after slowing down from a long period of 70ish cruising on the motorway. If I open the throttle wide it then picks up again and seems to be OK. It did this a few times yesterday on the M42...
