  4. Starter motor bearings and seal.

    Dominator / FMX
    Hi guys, I'm rebuilding my starter motor as it went caput, stripped it all down put new brushes on and cleaned up the commutator and output shaft, and got all the bloody oil out of it. The problem I'm having though is sourcing the internal bearing and oil seal that sits in the end of the...

  6. Barkbuster on RD07A

    Africa Twin
    Hi Guys I bought Barkbuster hand guards to fit to my RD07A. Of course it doesn't fit the standard handlebars with the internal handle bar weight in place. As I see it my options are: 1. Drill and tap the internal weight and fit the BB's to it. 2. Remove the internal weight and fit the BB's to...
  7. AT Tripmaster

    Africa Twin
    Can anybody throw some light on this for me, as I've never had an AT with a Tripmaster before. I turn the ignition on, the Tripmaster screen lights up OK, but there's nothing on the LCD panel. I've pushed reset; I've held reset; but I get nothing. I bought this Tripmaster but it hasn't been...

Stripping the clutch and i've found there is no thrust washer at the bottom of the basket, urgently require the thickness and outer dia of the washer if anyone knows??

  11. XL250RH Rotor Puller

    Hey, Can anyone point me in the right direction of the rotor puller for this bike. Got sold a puller to fit but its too big (its the two part one) 27mm 1.0 LH thread. Done a bit more research and it appears the 22mm x 1.5mm RH thread (internal) should do it - but want to make sure this time...
  12. Internal wear to clutch casing

    Africa Twin
    Hi When I bought my @ it had a noise coming from the inside of the clutch casing, it sounded to me as if something was catching / rubbing inside so I decided not to do many miles on it until I had had a chance to look inside. Well, I've drained the oil and had the casing off today and from...
  13. WTF? Internal borders?

    Not the most reliable and impartial source I know, but still: Has anyone heard about this - is this for real? Isn't 'democracy' grand :rolleyes: Looking on the bright side I suppose at least we'll all be...
  14. Internal bags for my Alops Hard Luggage

    Hi, Can anyone suggest some good internal bags for my Alpos 38 ltr and 41 ltr hard luggage? I don't want bags that fill the whole boxes but ones I can use to segment my kit. (e.g. books/maps, electricals, toiletries + medical, paperwork, camp-cooking kit, etc.) I'll probably keep clothes, tent...
  15. Frame internal rust

    Africa Twin
    Do frames rust on the inside? I saw a small hole at the front-left (near the down tubes) which gave me that sinking feeling as it looked like it had been made by a stone at first. But on closer inspection it looks too square. This is barmy surely, having a nice entrance for...
  16. Internal Noise

    I noticed the other week a noise coming from within the engine on the XR. It's only at a certain revs. Of course its difficult to describe a noise, but I'd liken it to a noise that a metal exhaust guard would make if it was slightly loose. Very metallic. Fine when the bikes on tickover, but hit...
