  2. Sticky Gearlever

    Africa Twin
    Hello lads. So today I found that my RD07 has a new trick up her sleeve. Cruising to a stop in first gear and then wanting to tap up into neutral is impossible. The gearlever feels well and truly welded into first gear. Cut the engine and she slides into N like butter. Am I missing something...

Not much ,just a few small drops after a ride ,but time to find out why and how. Removed the gearlever and the grey plastic cover cap ,inside this cap on the bottom there was a...
  8. Tranny Gearbox issues

    Hi all, new to this but looking for some advice with my 03 Transalp. It's done quite high kms, like 125k and has been good to this point. Currently using it as a courier bike so 1st, 2nd and 3rd get a good workout. It's beginning to kick back out of 2nd into neutral occasionally on the 1st 2nd...
