  4. Varadero
    Hello mates, would anyone here be able to tell me if there are significant, if any, differences of the rear end on the Vara before and after the 2003 models? I would really love to mount Givi V35's, but they only offer racks for the 2003+ models. If I don't have to modify the original rack...

  8. Transalp
    I’m working down in Dorset and thinking of hiring a van to collect my bike one weekend, rather than spend 6 hours on the train and then 5 hours back mostly on motorways. It also means I can bring another suitcase of bits and pieces with me, I work at sea so spend months away at a time. Can I...
  9. Africa Twin
    I have bought a 97 RD07a and there is an aftermarker rear end on it. I want to put the original back on so I can have a top box. Problem being that I dont have the bolts for the rear mudguard and rear carrier. I have checked online but its nearly 80 quid for replacement ones. Does anyone have...
  10. Africa Twin
    Two years ago I had to remove my original exhaust from my RD03 because it was so badly corroded internally, I fitted a GPR Exhaust temporally until I could get my original restored. In Rostov, Russia I met a custom bike & exhaust builder called Pasha, i sent the exhaust to him and 2 months...

  12. Transalp
    Hello, I have been off this forum for a few years as I traded my 700 Alp for a 650GS and then a CRF250M, but have decided now as there is nothing as good as a Transalp, I had to go back to the one I loved! Received my 55 plate XL650V today in the snow, and have started looking at what needs...
  13. Dominator / FMX
    You know that moment when you poke something with a screwdriver and immediately wish you hadn’t... I found a bit of flaky paint around where the seat and silencer bolt to the subframe, off side. One poke with a screwdriver later, I had a hole. After a friend attacked the affected area with a...
  14. Dominator / FMX
    A curious thing, ladies and gentlemen... Yesterday I went to pick up my bike from a mate who had done a bit of welding for me (that's another story...) Before leaving his place I checked the lights were working. No tail / brake light. My mate said he had checked all was working after doing the...

  16. Dominator / FMX
    Wondering just how well the Dominator handles offroad? And if anyone uses one as a greenlaning bike? Picked up a old beaten up bike that I am in the slow process of converting into a scrambler, but one that will actually cope with a bit of mud and green lanes. So just wondering how well they...
  17. Africa Twin
    Alright lads, I'm giving the brake calipers and the brake system a good cleaning and service. All I have to replace are a few rubber boots. Happy days. NOW, I want to get braided performance brake lines. I hear with new disks, pads and braided lines the bike stops great! Is it as simple as...

  20. Dominator / FMX
    Hi Guys, I am alive and well and still trying to use the Dominator at least once a week despite now owning a new bike. My plans to strip and rebuild the bike over the summer went out the window due to lack of funds. I have however had the front wheel off more times than I...
