  4. RD04 Scratching noise when pulling clutch

    Africa Twin
    Hi :) I have an RD04 from 1990 with 67000kms on the clock. The last couple of days I have started to notice a scratching sound from the engine when I pull the clutch and let I roll to a traffic light or something. Everything sounds perfect in neutral and when driving that's why I am worried...

  6. Rear light relocation program

    Africa Twin
    I really love the looks of the AT, but to me the rear light and plastic protector don't do the bike justice. So I relocated the rear light to sit flush with the fairing and removed the plastic protector (I know, not practical, but hey, stripe of dirt on the back adds to my image...) Original...

  10. Any experiences with the YSS Rear shock on XL650 Transalp ?

    Transalp
    I'm thinking of buying a YSS to replace the very tired original shock. I bought one for my 750AT and it jacked the rear up by 3". Nice shock but the seat is high now. Is the Transalp YSS the same deal ?

  14. Transalp 650. Mudguard bridge (front). Which way round?

    Transalp
    Hello all, Just been doing a bit of work on the front of my bike. This involved moving the mudguard bridge. When I took it off I didn't notice which way round it was. The manual says it has an arrow telling you which way round it goes. Mine was too rusty to read any arrow! Please could someone...

  18. Is the NX250 a sort of mini Dominator? Or a mini TransAlp?

    Dominator / FMX
    I've found a nice NX250, 1988 near me. Tempting even with the tiny wheels (16 inch). Is there a forum where convos about it might be found? It's also sold worldwide as the AX-1 and listed occasionally in the US as a Dominator... and I'm in the US. Thanks for any leads... t

  20. Can you identify this aftermarket exhaust on my XRV750 RD04?

    Africa Twin
    Hello AT Fans! Can you identify this aftermarket exhaust on my XRV750 RD04? It was installed on an AT I purchased and I am unable to locate any stamps or reference to an aftermarket manufacture. It sounds really nice on the V-twin. Any thoughts or guess? Thanks in advance!
