The digital trip on my 2003 07A has started to play games. The Clock works ok and the speedometer is fine. The digital trips work ok upto about 35 mph, then stops recording. When the speed drops it starts working again. I have checked all the plugs and sockets and opened up the trip meter and...
I have a red 1999 XL600V Transalp with a damaged headlamp cowl.
I have found a replacement cowl online which is red but I'm not sure the colour will match.
Does anyone know if there were different shades of red used on this model/year?
I've attached a picture of my bike.
It's quite an...
My 1994 RD07A is intermittently missing a beat at idle? It does need some carb work and is idleing a little high. But every once in a while it seems to have a little hiccup. There is a mechanical “click” sound then a miss in the RPMs. It’s just for an instant, then returns to normal. This...
My 700 Alp has now been gone for 4 months and during a clean out of the garden shed I came across the original cat box that I removed. I also have the Honda touring screen that came with the bike. If anyone is interested in taking these off my hands then they are yours for free. They will need...
Can anyone tell me wether the engine takes semi-synthentic or fully synthetic oil?
I can see that it takes 10w40 but what do people reccomend on here?

My 600 (1987) developed a flat spot this afterrnoon, around 4,500 revs she bogs down momentarily before picking up again.
It feels like fuel starvation, except that she'll then shoot round to the red line with no problem.
So, given that 90% of carburetor problems turn out to be electrical...
Brand new "motobatt" battery fitted recently, all working fine, then one cold morning it only had enough power to turn the engine over twice, then went flat. Battery recharged from the mains. then all starts fine
I suspect the Oxford heated grips are killing the battery. They are...
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...
I'm in the process of changing the front sprocket on my RD07a. I removed the sprocket cover and then the old sprocket. I was merrily cleaning all the old crud away before fitting the new one when this little fella dropped out. I have no idea where it goes so any help would be...

I have just had a rebore on my 92 Donnie.
What oil should I be using to bed the rings and bore.
Should I stay away from semi synthetic?,
Should I use some cheap oil for 500 miles then change filter and oil for some semi synthetic?
Your thoughts please
Yet another bike forum on my list, well I have gone and done it, I have been mulling over it for a while should I shouldn't I get a dommie, so here I am looking and watching what all you guys are getting up to with your spanners, hammers, and welders etc etc, so as far as my own dommie is...
Right, im looking for some ideas to mount rear pegs on my dommie project. Would prefer them to be removable, as they will only be fitted if i take my son for a ride. See photo below. The only idea i could think of, is two weld two nuts on the inside of the curved upright, so i could then bolt...
On a recent trip to Wales my trusty 94 xr250 let me down.
Just before it stopped all the electrics stopped but it was still running.
Then it stopped, I've got spark and had some little fires but not enough to run. And some wierd back fires.
Its think it's a electrical problem
I need the help off you experts.
My rd03 runs really well.
But as it gets warm after maybe few miles the neutral light starts to flicker then goes completely. Bike still running fine. But if you turn it off starting is tricky. You need to pull clutch lever in, and have stand up to restart...
I have this Africa Twin RD07 a -98 model. I bought it like 3 years a go and it had the knocking sound from then. I have replaced the cam chain tensioner and exhaust gaskets. Non off this did help. The sound is only there when driving when the engine get some resistance. When standing...
So, last time I had the carb apart I put in a 55 slow jet
As it turns out or seems atm a 55 is a little too much.
Seems to run ok but tickover still a bit erratic
Anyway, see if you can answer this
If I leave it ticking over and then switch off the fuel, it seems to smooth out and the tickover...
