  1. Wrong (too low) tacho reading

    Africa Twin
    Hi! It seems my tacho is showing the RPM wrong. When idling at ~1000rpm, the tacho stays at 0 and just vibrates slightly. As soon as I open the throttle it moves upwards quickly, but doesn't catch up properly until around 4-5000 rpm. Any ideas what may be causing this? I think it's always been...
  2. Choke, for dummies

    Transalp
    Guys I have just landed in Germany and picked up my 01 alp. I have no idea which way the choke lever is for on and off. It seems to make no difference to the idle speed. I think off is away from the rider and on is pull towards the rider?? Given there is also a petrol smell when the bike is...
  3. Gearbox chatter

    Africa Twin
    Now its probably me just being anal and not knowing these bikes, but do the gearboxes chatter when idling. It goes away when I engage gear, so its either the gearbox or cluch? What are the release bearings like on these?

  10. whole new idling problem NOW FIXED (and wasn't new at all)

    Africa Twin
    whole new idling problem with the AT :cry: This happened quite suddenly. The bike hasn't been serviced at all, but I did need to move the airbox a bit (not right off, just shoved aside a bit) to get access to fit the new ignition switch. Symptoms: - runs fine in normal riding - when I...
  11. another idling problem question!

    Africa Twin
    Have a problem which doesn't seem to correspond to any of the many earlier threads on idling problems... (unless I missed somehting, there's a lot of discussion on it!) Idle is OK on the choke - normal fast idle at about 2500rpm. But when the engine is warm enough that it should idle without...
