  6. Air Filter cover. Graying with the warning label worn off. What to do?

    Africa Twin
    Well lads. One of the only things that I didn't like about my bike when I got it a few weeks ago was the plastic air filter cover. It had been sun damaged and the gold warning label that Honda fit from the factory had part worn off and it just didn't look good anymore so I put my thinking hat...
  7. Cheap and quick repair.

    Dominator / FMX
    The fairing on my newly acquired Domi was cracked due to an altercation the previous owner had with a garage wall.

  11. "New" engine

    Africa Twin
    Thought you may like to see a couple of photos of the "new" engine I've just had built. Originally from a 2001 Africa Twin, it suffered a crankshaft failure just out of warranty and as Honda wouldn't pay to fix it, it then sat around for a few years gathering dust and corrosion until I picked...
