    Pillion foot peg rubbers on my Dommie are perishing and falling apart, currently held on with cable ties. Despite the fact I NEVER take a pillion, this has been bugging me so I bought new ones from David Silver. Does anyone have experience/ top tips for replacing those? It looks like it...
  3. Africa Twin
    Mine is siezed good and proper, at the end that bolts to the frame. It is going to need attacking with extreme prejudice, but before I get the really big hammer out, I need to know if the bolt that attaches the link to the frame is held in place just by the nut on the bolt, or alternatively it...

  5. Africa Twin
    Hi all, Just putting the clutch basket back together, and I have 7 friction plates in total. When I put it all together and tighten down the spring plate though, the plates move about freely. I would have expected the plates to be held in place by the pressure plate, until the push rod presses...
  6. Transalp
    I've not picked up the Transalp yet so can't do the obvious test but what is the petrol tank made of? Steel, Aluminium? I have an Oxford tank bag which is held on with magnets so wondering if it will still be of any use :) Nige
  7. Dominator / FMX
    Hi to everyone not been on here much of late. Out riding my dommy all winter in all conditions and still love it to pieces. Just recently whilst cleaning I noticed my exhaust has some serious corrosion think it's been held together for a while with mud :) considering imo this is the Origanal...
  8. XR
    I got one and can't figure out how the headlight lenses are held in place. I'm missing something, any closeup pics or anyone who knows what the parts are like that I need, please help, thanks.
  9. Africa Twin
    Saw this picture in some thread here (can't find it now) The thing is on that RD04 carb float chamber cover is nowhere near horizontal but at an large angle. Does that mean this method can't be applied or the carbs have to be removed and held so that float chamber cover IS horizontal to...

  11. Africa Twin
    Can anybody throw some light on this for me, as I've never had an AT with a Tripmaster before. I turn the ignition on, the Tripmaster screen lights up OK, but there's nothing on the LCD panel. I've pushed reset; I've held reset; but I get nothing. I bought this Tripmaster but it hasn't been...
  12. Chatter
    Right then, now that I've got your attention - what would you do with the aforesaid "untold millions". Me, I'd build (or rather fund the building of) a main line steam engine to take the world speed record, which currently stands at 125.88 MPH and is held by 4468 Mallard. When I say "currently"...
  13. Transalp
    I've always considered the Transalps to be a bit dull but their dependabilty makes up for it. I was quite surprised at the weekend when 3 different bikers I randomly met were all very complementary about the Transalp. One commented how sought after they were ???? and how they hold their value...

    Thought you might be amused by an email that landed in my work inbox today: > Hi all, > > Call for papers are now up for the CRAP 2012 conference on context > recommendation, analysis and processing held in Beijing this year. > Papers are due May 27, looking forward to your submissions. > >...

    I just found this video of the XRV karaoke night that was held on one of the Welsh invasions. Can any of you guess which two XRV members are doing the singing?? Whispering Grass - YouTube

    Planning a trip to the Dolomites next year and one of my co-travellers mentioned that you need to have held your M/C licence for a minimum period of a year to be able to enter certain countries. Of course he couldn't remember which countries! Anyone heard of this requirement and has anyone got...

    Don't beleeeeeeeeeve it, a bloody hand held speed camera in the vast metropolis known as Kinlochewe ( hardly a big place, blink and you're through it ) :D Trouble is, PC Plod was standing on the footpath beside an unmarked car parked just off footpath and he wasn't wearing a high viz. What...
  18. XR
    1999 model, has a separate cover that sits on top of the headlight, held on by 4(?) plastic hooks. Unfortunatley it blew off whilst bike being transported on a bike rack for the first time :), didn't think to strap it down!! Anyone know of a cheap aftermarket replacement, can't seem to find...
  19. Africa Twin
    How much more/less braking would a 320mm disc give me over the standard 276mm x 2 discs I have at the mo?
