    Africa Twin
    Hello there! I was rebuilding my carbs while looking at the Honda fiches, and saw that a gasket on my carb is positioned differently. On the fiches, the order is: 28-1-15, so the metal collar (15) sits on the carb, the gasket (1) sits on the metal collar, and the plastic plate (28) sits on the...

  6. Crazy question about speedometers

    Africa Twin
    Has anyone ever tried to fit a digital speedo with a magnetic pickup inside the stock speedo housing? This could be a solution for keeping a stock look, but not dealing with that nylon gear packing up all the time. Also, it would allow for easily switching between MPH and KPH. Talk me out...
  7. Transalp 600 Grips

    Transalp
    Hi all, Ive now taken the grips off the Alp but I cant seem to find any grips to fit. For some odd reason most grips seems to be 120-125mm long, whereas I have about 95mm throttle side and 90mm clutch side. Did the 600 Alp come with shorter grips? :confused: I could move the various 'bits' like...

    Heat from the exhaust gases is frying the rear indicator housing and vibration from the exhaust destroys the bulb! Is there an off the shelf bracket that will move the right indicator below the line of the exhaust and into fresh air? Or is there an angled extension/deflector tube to fit the...
