Hello, i need an advice...if possible ASAP
i can buy a shockabsorber for my 92' TA 600 made by Wilbers, almost new at a very good price. Mine is the original one and the bike is like a kangoroo from the behind so i am really into buying this yet...cause there is a yet...The shock is for the 650...
I've got a -00 RD07 (50000km) which I am quite happy with. Recently however I've painfully noticed that sometimes when I shift down to a lower gear on high speed I loose the gear. Usually I just press the clutch and clonk the shifter and all is fine again.
Do I have to start...
I have been struggling with heavy fuel useage for a while. I must admit that I'm not scared to open the throttle every once in a while. Can my fellow Transalpers please let me know what your fuel useage are, I get 220km on a 17l tank unleaded.
Hello friends motorcyclists!, I have 54 years, I live in Argentina to 50 km city of Buenos Aires, and I own a 1991 RD04 Africa Twin. The'm repairing because the previous owner had it pretty sloppy. I send a hug to everyone.
Normally over on the XRV bit of the forum, but yesterday I bought an XR650R, so thought I'd pop in and say hi :)
On my first ride last night I ran out of gas, about 1 km from my house. No problem with the XR ... done it with the AT also, which really sucks!
I just bought this 'new' Dommie, it has only done 45,000 km on sealed roads so is in min condition.
My project Dommie ended up being too much of a project and I desperately needed a bike for the summer so I will probably keep this one stock for now.....it rides really nice :mrgreen:
Hi, Long time lurker here, created a forums account but only decided to say hello today (just noticed i haven´t done it yet, shame on me :oops:). Hope to share some knowedge and at the same time learn some my self :thumb:
1993 RD07, 78.000km (plus change), still going strong and showing no signs...
As I'm using my TA mainly for commuting and I have to do about 60km of highway a day I was thinking about fitting a higher windscreen. I suppose this might improve the wind deflection a bit.
Is there anyone who has fitted this on his bike? What are your experiences?
I own a 1998 RD07A africa twin with 100.000km on the odo and in last year I had a few situations when during driving engine was stalling.....problem is becouse this lasted only few minutes and after that everything was normal.
Fuel pump is changed so this probably is not the reason as this...
1994 model, 39000km on the clock, it has used 0,7 liter oil on 1000 km
No visual leaks (except the carb insulator rubber, see other post, which has stopped leaking)
I think this seems like a huge amount. White exhaust this morning which went away after 2-3 minutes.
2005, 12.500km ABS, Heated grips, central stand, new Anakee II,
It would leave me with enough money left to go riding for a long time.
I will haggle! There will be blood! But if price turns out right, this could end up in my garage!
I have a really annoying problem, the bike cuts out when driving, typically above 60km/h ...
I then pull the clutch and try to keep the engine alive with a little throttle back and forth, and usually the problem goes away, but returns again shortly after.
The other day, it did it...
coming back from a 500km trip I apparently managed to run the oil-level of my Rd07a below the dipstick. Oil pressure light did not light up, though. Although I don't really believe that this caused damage, any comforting words from knowledgeable folks would be appreciated ;-)
I would like to invite a few riders to come with me and my dad trail riding in Wiltshire, as you will most likely know it has around 690km of legal byways, I can sort out dates if there's any interest, we have space for 1 extra person in our van which can take 5 bikes. It would be a bonus if...
Took the bike to Austria today and the missus followed in the car with our bike trailer on the back...I used 13 litres of unleaded, and she used 10 litres of diesel!!
Admittedly she had to keep to the German speed limit of 80km/h with the trailer, but she certainly crept up to 100 at times...
