    Africa Twin
    Hi all, My love for my @ hasnt dwindled and I want to lavish cash on it and get some crashbars. But which ones? I like the RuggedRoad bars, but the Fehling bars seem to cover more fairing, the Dessert bars look cool, SWs look alright..... What have you got and what would you recommend??? Too...

  10. Ride-on tyre sealant

    Wheels, Tyres & Tubes
    Although I'm tempted to get some tyre levers and carry a spare tube for my upcoming camping trip, I've never needed to replace a tube or tyre yet and not so confident of my ability to break the bead and sort it all out on the roadside. I'll probably give this a try myself when it comes to...
  11. Engine knock when cold. TA650 '00 (X)

    Hi, when my engine cold, it knocks. Not a rattle, but a metalic knock. As soon as engine warm, ie temp gauge moves slightly it goes. Was hoping new oil would quieten it but no, it hasnt. Im dreading the thought of a big-end bearing going. Could just be piston-slap tho. Any comments or...

  14. Shame :((

    It looks like my dream of his'n'hers Alps for me & the missus is out the window:( Soo had a try on the Alp & there's no way she can get away with the seat height (even with the seat lowering kit it wouldn't be enough). Someone said check out the new BM F650 which has a seat AND suspension...

  16. Facet fuel pump failure!!

    Africa Twin
    Would you believe it? :( My all singing Facet fuel pump has gone & died on me.. The bike hasn't felt 100% for a few weeks, especially under hard acceleration but Saturday it just went VERY quiet. It actually ran every 3/4 minutes for about 10-12 seconds but with no power. Pushed the bike...
  17. Uncomfortable seat

    Having just sold my 04 plate TTR250, i immediately went out and got my XR400. The XR i feel is a better bike all round except obviously for the lack of electric start, but i am getting the knack of the kick start proceedure now, however the one real area where it fails to beat the TTr is...

    Africa Twin
    Do you think it would be possible to install ABS components from the transalp into the AT. There has to be someone out there who tried to fit ABS, hasn't there.

    Apologies in advance if this is the mother of all dumb questions. I did a search and found some pointers about aiming headlights but after trying to do it last night I'm still a bit lost. The way I did it was to place the bike about 20 feet (also tried about 15 feet, and 10 feet - everywhere I...
