  4. Wanted: Larger fuel tank for '02 XR400

    XR
    Hi Team, Just thought I'd ask on here before I put a good hole in £300... does anyone have an oversize tank for an '02 XR400 floating about? Was after the IMS 4.0 gallon one in Natural colour, but would also be happy with a Clarke or Acerbis. Done a lot of looking around, and 98% of them are...

    Africa Twin
    Greeting from Austria! Since i saw many Twins with rear tanks in this forum, i got to ask you a few questions. Short story: I bought a modified RD07 1995 last year which needed some love, stripped it this winter, removed everything the previous owner built, checked and overhauled pretty much...

    Africa Twin
    Hi all, Started the rebuild process last week at last! Thought I would start a tread about it as I do like to read a good rebuild post and happy to receive any suggestions that go along with it.

  9. Varadero & my cure for the soft rear shock

    Varadero
    Right then, I've done heaps of mods to my 2000 Varadero over the years & tbh I fell out of love with it about 18 months ago. I still really like the bike & would never sell it, but I just ran out of ideas with the too soft rear end. I tried lots of things, first was jackup plates with the...

  11. Hmmm

    Africa Twin
    Long time since I posted on here, but I've just found a rare treat in need of some love:p I say rare because bikes of any size are anyway extremely difficult to find here in Myanmar, but an AT is an even more stunning find:thumbright: This one is up for sale for around 1800 US$ so I'm sooo...
  12. Dash Cam Experiences?

    Photography
    Hello, fellow two-wheelers! I consider mounting a (double) dash cam on my bike, and I can´t navigate in the jungle - I would rather get tips from experienced people in here. INNOVV seems to be a good choice, but one place it was mentioned that it stops recording for a short period of time now...
  13. Ticking noise... Starter relay, fuel pump or Stator?

    Africa Twin
    Hi I've just bought an XRV750 Africa Twin after wanting one for a long time and very happy with it. It has developed a ticking noise which is drowned out when engine running but clearly audible when engine off but ignition on. It goes off completely when ignition is switched off. Noise is...

    XL
    I have two frames that I have inherited as part of a bundle of spares that came with an 80's XL185 I have purchased, I only have a V5 for the complete bike but the other frames have clear frame numbers and the seller states they were complete road registered bikes when he stripped them in the...

  16. Reuild or road trip?

    Transalp
    Hi, I bought an '87 TA about a month and a half ago. I have been very happy with it, and bought it as a replacement for my Suzuki GS500E that I had grown out of. I bought this bike because I wanted to do a road trip around Europe, around 2000km, and I felt I wouldn't really be comfortable on the...
  17. MOT a week or two back - chain tension saga

    Transalp
    Discreetly watch second bike TA 650 going though its MOT and I know that chain brings out worst of tester's OCD as it was marked as loose in advisory last year. I know it's in perfect condition and correctly tensioned but for him it's a fail for too slack. So he kindly gets the tools out and...

    Transalp
    Hi,Can anyone recommend a good foot stand extension plate for the XL700?I've had a Cameltoe fitted for a couple of year and although it looked good I was not impressed with the way it bent with use and the bolts were continually working loose.
