  8. Immobiliser

    Transalp
    I have a new-to-me 2005 Transalp V4. Having now read the users manual it stares that when I turn the ignition on the little green 'key' light (immobiliser system indicator) on the RH side of the neutral indicator should turn on for a few seconds and then go off? That does not happen. turn key...

  12. Rode off road!

    Dominator / FMX
    Having recently replaced the Bridgy BT45 tyres on my Dommie with a more dirt-friendly Conti Escape, I took a detour off road today. Nothing strenuous, I don't have the skills for it, just some marked Byways around Hertfordshire. Good fun, and a useful escape route if I'm ever a fugitive on the...
  13. Gearchange activating mainbeam??

    Transalp
    As the title, when I'm driving with a dipped headlamp sometimes this will switch to mainbeam when I change gear. This will only last for a second and reverts back to dipped once the gearchange is completed. It does not happen with every gearchange and can occur in any gear moving up or down the...
  14. Transalp 600 oil pressure boss crack

    Transalp
    Hi, I've just seen the boss which holds the oil pressure sensor has a crack, probably from over-tightening the sensor. I'm thinking of drilling a channel on the length of the crack, clean it and put some Al epoxy then some tiger seal at the end of the boss just as a sealant. I don't know...

  19. Speedo drive

    Africa Twin
    My speedo and trip stop working last week, so took off the front wheel and the plastic bit inside it stuck solid. It won't budge, now I know it's only a few quid for the part, but how do I get the old one out and what could have caused it to seize in the first place as I don't want to replace...
  20. Sticky choke (Aluminium Choke Valve Guide)

    Africa Twin
    Hola, I've been advised (by someone on here) to lube my choke (my AT's returning low mileage) but that I should purchase some "Aluminium Choke Valve Guide" from Rugged Road as the factory ones break just by looking at them. I was just about to order when I noticed the website said they were...
