  1. Engine missing a beat at idle?

    Africa Twin
    My 1994 RD07A is intermittently missing a beat at idle? It does need some carb work and is idleing a little high. But every once in a while it seems to have a little hiccup. There is a mechanical “click” sound then a miss in the RPMs. It’s just for an instant, then returns to normal. This...

  11. Shadow carb fit?

    Varadero
    Hi all, Does anyone know if a carb from a 125 Shadow will fit a 125 Varadero? As I can't get a Varadero from any where. I have checked part nos and shadow is 16102-kgb-d11 and Varadero is 16102=kpc-d21. The only difference in looking at them is the idle screw. Thanks.
