  1. Africa Twin fender on a TA?

    Transalp
    One of the thing I really like about the look of the Africa Twin is the fork protectors, to my eye looks much nicer than the exposed forks on the Transalp. Does anyone know if it is possible to fit a mudguard and fork guard from any of the Africa Twin models to the Transalp, without having to...
  2. GPS updating

    Mechanical Advice
    Ok you techies out there, I have a 2610 gps with v7 or 8 on it and I have noticed that recently it is very not up to date as I have been travelling down some dual carriageways and the sat nav goes crazy telling me to turn round etc as I appear to be travelling cross country in a field etc,it...

  6. More exhausts questions

    Transalp
    Hi, I have finally owned a bike long enough for it to become necessary to replace parts due to wear and tear! (that must say something about the TA) 4 years and 30k miles and the TA's std exhaust is finally rotted through. So what better excuse to replace with something a little nicer?!! I...
  7. Does an aftermarket end-can increase power or torque?

    Africa Twin
    Does replacing just the end-can increase the power or more importantly torque of the AT? If so does anyone know by how much? If not, is that because it needs a K&N etc as well, or does a new end can literally just sound nicer? Going to be dropping some teeth off the back sprocket to lower the...
  8. xr600

    XR
    What about it then? Read some interesting stuff on adv about the 600 being a 'nicer' bike than the 650; mainly in terms of real world useability I think. Understand the 600 was air-cooled while the later 650s are watercooled. Does the air-cooling make for a simpler more bombproof bike...
  9. 509 miles for a pint of milk !!!!

    Ride Reports and Pictures
    ''I'M JUST POPPING OUT TO GET MILK'' I shouts. ''No worries'' she shouts back '' we're out for the day - see you about 4'' Ah hah. ''see you about 4'' !! Hmmmm. My youngest was invited to a friends birthday party - this would necessitate getting new shoes for the party, which we all know is a...
  10. Camping weekend June/July 07 Dartmoor/Exmoor/New Forest

    Meet Ups / Rideouts
    After last year's famous weekend events: http://www.xrv.org.uk/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?t=4674 http://www.xrv.org.uk/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?t=4949 http://www.xrv.org.uk/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?t=6900 ...

  11. Hello

    Africa Twin
    I've just signed up and figured I ought to introduce myself and explain how ATs came into my life. As a life-long road (and road racing) oriented rider they didn't appear on my personal radar until about three years ago when a friend, who had never owned one, told me he wanted to get a...

    I doubt i really have to tell anyone about this, but is anyone planning on going? I am on the sat the 1st or sunday the 2nd. I was wondering if any one want to meet up for a ride on either of the those days. It would be great to have an AT presence at the show! any takers? I don't know of any...
  13. Biking gripe of the week

    Chatter
    Sticking this one on the forum, just to see if I'm a lonely, grumpy old git, or if anyone else agrees. Right, here goes. My biking gripe this week (actually most summer weeks really) is power rangers riding about on sports bikes :evil: :twisted: :evil: :twisted: :evil: As some my know...
  14. Roll Up Roll Up Come and get them while their HOT! :evil:

    Transalp
    Thanks to FW600vj - Francis from Norn Iron, who sent me some handguards a long time back as my bike had none. Turned out they didn't fit my 2004 650. I just fitted new ones from David Siler Spares. He says there from a 91 TA. I cleaned them up and painted them black before realising they didn't...
  15. Why the choice of tyre sizes on the back?

    Africa Twin
    I have this question too .... but would a 130 or 150 profile work I've given up with the trailie type tyre and moved to the road tyre set up. It overall IMO feels a nicer ride in all weathers and during the life the tyres but tyre life is shorter. I currently running on rear a 140/70...
