    Anyone chopping up their bike and no longer need the left side switchgear? My indicator switch has just snapped inside and could do with a replacement. Thanks!
  2. Indicator Relay?

    Africa Twin
    I noticed on a ride out yesterday that there was a few seconds delay between flicking the indicator switch and the indicators coming on. When I had a closer look today, when u switch on the indicators you can hear a relay clicking quite quickly and then slowing down to a normal rate when the...

  5. bike suddenly cut out at speed

    Africa Twin
    I was riding my bike on a dual carrideway today in the fast lane when suddenly, whilst amongst traffic, the bike cut out. I managed to steer it to the side with only the blast of horns in my ears thankfully. I thought I had run out of pertrol but had only done 116 miles on a full tank...
  6. Dodgy indicators

    Dominator / FMX
    Any clues on this one please? When I bought my Dommie I thought that it was taking 2-3 presses of the indicator switch to get the lights flashing. No problem cancelling, one press as you would expect. I later found than when the indicator switch was pressed, the flasher unit would click...

    Yeah, I know it's not an "Adventure" bike, but it is a Honda, and the engine feels a bit like a V-Twin!! I posted the piece below on another forum, and I thought someone may find it of use or interesting... Integra impressions. Well, I finally managed to get a test ride on an Integra today...
  8. Indicators take ages to activate

    Hiya. In this cold weather, my indicators are taking a long time to activate- I'll press the indicator switch, and sometimes it won't go at all, and sometimes it will take 10 to 20 seconds to start indicating. Once it's flashing it's fine, but it's just getting that first flash. It can be quite...

  10. Indicator switch fixing.

    Africa Twin
    Started to have problems with the indicator switch after a two day sand/dust storm in Morocco. Not as smooth as it used to be. But as I could still use it I didn't clean it at once. :dontknow: Last week I lost almost all feedback in the switch, took it apart to clean and try to find the problem...

  16. A Yank builds a chain oiler

    Bodgers Corner
    I finished my chainoiler bodge. I put 200 miles on it today and it works surprisingly well. What it ISN'T is pretty. My bike is a 1990 Transalp with many Africa Twin bits. It's like this because the ATs were never imported to cruiser-happy America and poor sods like us have to build our own...
