  1. Output shaft renewal

    Transalp
    Started to change the output shaft on my 700 XL. All the bolts holding the chrome heat shields and the painted heat shields were sized in so that took me around 4 hours to do, I’m a slow worker, drill out re-tap the holes and order new bolts. The rest went as I expected it to no real drama...
  2. CG125 Tank Badge

    Mechanical Advice
    Im Looking for tank badges/logo for my CG125 tank. The spacing between screw mounting holes is 60mm, but all the badges i can find on fleabay are 67mm spacing between holes. Anyone bought any of these in the past for their CG125 tank with 60mm hole spacing?

  4. Rear wheel anyone?

    XL
    Anybody have a rear rim (with or without hub) that's 17 inches? I think all the XL versions should be 36 holes. Need to re-lace a wheel, let me know if anyone has one they can part with.
  5. Rear shock RD04: Rebuild or cheap aftermarket?

    Africa Twin
    The rear shock on my RD04 is really harsh at holes and bumps, and it goes thru the whole bike. Its feels like the compression damping is too hard. I have tried to adjust it, but I can’t feel any difference. I have 30 mm free sag, and 70 mm rider sag, so the spring should be ok. (from the...
  6. RD 04 carb overhaul

    Africa Twin
    Help needed please guys. Decided to try and get my AT running over the festive period. Not a hope. I'd forgotten to drain the fuel when i put it away a couple of years ago. I know, it's a crime to put it away for so long, but i did. Well, it would not start, so i stripped and cleaned the carbs...

  8. fairing repair - which plastic?

    Bodgers Corner
    My AT's on it's third headlight fairing (or 'nose cowling' as the parts book calls it). The first two developed bad cracks around the holes into which the side fairing panels connect. I've kept the old fairings with an eye to trying to repair them and have now, after many years, got a plastic...

  11. Givi E217 Monolock Adapter for 650 Transalp

    Transalp
    I bought a new (to me) topbox and it came with a standard monolock plate. Apparently there is a specific plate for the Transalp 650 called E217, it also fits the Varadero. Is this correct? Did both bike use the same rack? Anyway, this specific plate is the one I already have but with some metal...
  12. 650 Replace the Gaiters

    Transalp
    So my Transalp Gaiters have more holes than swis cheese and look unsightly. So a few questions 1. Can I just remove them and not replace? Alternatives available? 2. How hard is it to remove the forks and put them back properly? 3. How hard is it to align them once back in? do they just 'fall...
  13. Tinworm

    Dominator / FMX
    You know that moment when you poke something with a screwdriver and immediately wish you hadn’t... I found a bit of flaky paint around where the seat and silencer bolt to the subframe, off side. One poke with a screwdriver later, I had a hole. After a friend attacked the affected area with a...

  15. RD04 Needle jet holder. Which one is with 10 holes?

    Africa Twin
    Hi I have a XRV RD04 1991. Reading all service manuals and visiting all websites in the world, don't clarify which needle jet holder goes where. One have 6 holes - one have 10 holes. My logic tells me, that the one with 10 holes is in carburettor 1, since its jetted a little larger than...

  17. 1995 600 size of collector outlet

    Transalp
    (or) I wish I hadn't bothered but it had to be done lol My original standard silencer has some small holes in it so I decided to remove it and patch it up. It was a heck of a job trying to get it loose from the downpipe but it finally came away or so I thought. It had only taken the collector...
  18. XRV 650 Wheel Rims - DOT code

    Africa Twin
    Hi all, Hope everyone is well, I'm looking to get a spare set of rims for my RD03 so I could have a set with 80/20 tires and a set of full knobbly tires on. Could anyone help decode the stamping on the rim: "J 21x1.85 3 88 DOT" So the 21x1.85 is easy enough, what does the J and 3 88 DOT...

  20. XL650V Rear light and fender on XL600V?

    Transalp
    Good day fellas. Since I'm rebuilding the bike into a 22nd century machine I figured it might be worth it to adjust the rear accordingly too. Does anyone know if the XL650V rear led light could fit on the XL600V? There are heaps of 650 assemblies available on eBay: Complete Rear LED Tail Tidy...
