  1. A Yank builds a chain oiler

    Bodgers Corner
    I finished my chainoiler bodge. I put 200 miles on it today and it works surprisingly well. What it ISN'T is pretty. My bike is a 1990 Transalp with many Africa Twin bits. It's like this because the ATs were never imported to cruiser-happy America and poor sods like us have to build our own...
  2. Contents of the OEM tool kit.

    Africa Twin
    Hi guys, Recently a friend of mine got real pissed when he sent his bike to his local garage for a servicing, when he got the bike back from the shop, he realised that one of the mechanics "nicked" his OEM Africa Twin tool kit, which is pretty much a common practise for them over here in South...
  3. Gordon's Mods - Improve your XR 250 or 400

    XR
    As the mods that Gordon did get referred to almost constantly for an XR I've copied them here for posterity and stickied them. The source was the XR400 Yahoo group. http://autos.groups.yahoo.com/group/xr400/files/%21%21%21%20Gordon%27s%20XR400%20Mods%20%21%21%21/ So let's use this thread for...
  4. Centech Auxiliary Power Fuse Panel

    Product Reviews
    This is a great piece of kit that I bought whilst in the States a couple of years ago for $45 (about £30 at the time) but it is available online. Basically it’s an additional fuse box that enables you to quickly and easily power any additional accessories you want to put on your bike. I...

  6. Pannier Question Touratech

    Mechanical Advice
    Quick question on Touratech panniers, has anyone bought Touratech panniers separately from the corresponding pannier rack, and if so was the mounting hardware supplied with the panniers, or did you have to buy these separately ?.
  7. camping stool

    Chatter
    My local cheapo hardware shop is selling these for £1! How cool is that! At that price Dave could get XRV ones made up. And they even fit easily into my topbox.
  8. More rounded nuts.....

    Mechanical Advice
    Probably a stupid question but......when changing all my rear bearings last time home, I noticed the main retaining nut on the rear axial is starting to round off. Do I have to get an entire new nut and bolt set, or can I just nip down the local hardware shop/auto supplier and get a similar one...
  9. Mirrors Help

    Transalp
    I want to get some mirrors for the Aficalp and was thinking about the pattern ones from wemoto. I can see where LH mirror goes on to the clutch lever mount but I'm strugging with the RH one, how/where does it mount? I've looked at the microfiches but can't quite work it out, will I need...

  12. Peli top box and toolbox

    Transalp
    Feel like I've made a start on making the bike my own after it spent the last few years in the careful ownership of Boboneleg; so it's about time I posted a pic or two... In case you were wondering what I needed the ali sheet for Standard rack and tool box Denuded! Made these two up from...

  15. Bike Reborn (sort of)

    Africa Twin
    Okay, I guess folks got a bit sick of photos after every bit of dust was wiped off, but I did finish putting my bike back together and took it out on Sunday. Fantastic after 6 weeks of riding a naily TT600! Brakes are excellent and, more to the point, I know why they're excellent and I have a...

  18. Touratech tankbag

    Chatter
    I just received a touratech tankbag off the bargain list from Touratech USA. It's the type with the detachable panniers. It came with no mounting instructions. Everything is pretty clear cut except the two long straps at the top front. There is no hardware on these two. I'm not sure how...
  19. Sat Nav / GPS Solutions

    Chatter
    I'm interested to know exactly what GPS systems people have on their bike. I'd like to list them here, and we'll probably make an article out of it. I only want bike solutions inc mounting hardware, and bike solutions that are weatherproof! So no solutions like mine where I use a Dell Axim X5...
  20. Scottoiler Dual Injector - piccies

    Transalp
    Howdi, has anyone fitted the dual injector onto a ta600 ? If so, could they chuck some pictures on here showing which hardware they used ? Only I'm fitting the Scottoiler at the same time as the dual injector, and it would save me some brainsweat if I can cheat a bit. TIA, Shorty
