  4. Barkbusters limiting steering movement - RD04

    Africa Twin
    Hi, mt AT (Catweasel's) has barkbusters and they limit the steering. They hit the fairing before end of the normal range of movement and I think they are why my steering lock won't engage. Any tips before I start grinding bits away? Cheers, Stewart.
  5. Rugged Road crash bars saved the day

    Africa Twin
    Just dropped my AT today at slow rolling speed and thanks to those Rugged Road crash bars any serious damage was prevented. But the right one took a substantial hit and it absorbed all the force which resulted in it being slightly bent inwards. Is it possible to bend it back? I will post some...

    Transalp
    Xl600v Ok after about 1 hr of steady riding my water temp rises, sits at about 80 degrees upon hitting traffic after this it will rise up to 105 degrees then fan comes in and lowers temp. My question are.... 1. Is this normal? 2. Do your fans come on? 3. What temp does your alp run at? Cheers...

    CRF - New Forum!
    Second post..... Nightmare!☹️ I have cracked the crankcase cover (rhs) and clutch case cover after hitting a rock. Does any know if the crankcase cove from a CRF250R will fit on the X?? It's a 2005 model. They do look very similar but the Honda part numbers differ somewhat. Cheers Jack

  10. Back to work blues

    Chatter
    Well I'm on my last day off before the next years worth of grind starts. Been an eventful year 2014. Changed employers, other personal stuff that's gone on and these bouts of sickness I just can't seem to shake off. I'm hoping 2015 will be a good year, but the back to work blues have hit hard.
  11. Speedo plastic gear thingy

    Africa Twin
    Hi Folks, I'm in the process of replacing the speedo plastic gear thingy and have hit a bit of a problem. The old isn't in too bad a condition and slides in and out of the housing no problem but the new one slides in so far (I've given it a good greasing) then feels slightly stiff. I'm...

  13. Fuel range for dominator

    Dominator / FMX
    Hi there, Riding today did 120 mile round trip and everything was great. Only thing I need to check is if it is about right that I had to go to reserve at around 115 miles from a full tank. It was mainly motorway riding. Mine is a 1995 with the 16l tank. How much should you expect from a...

    I went out on the trails in the Rhymney Valley today. It was very slippery in places with leaves covering the ground so you had to guess what was underneath. Coming down one trail I hit a patch of mud and had to have a lie-down but can you see what's wrong in this piccie (apart from me...
