  1. Lateral play on OE front sprocket

    Africa Twin
    Hi all, I just replaced the front sprocket of my AT I just bought, there was a JT installed. I installed a new OE front sprocket and a new retainer. Once both mounted, I noticed a lateral play on the front sprocket according to the output shaft. The lateral play is about 1 mm I think. I am not...

  3. Play in the Rear Brake Calliper?

    Transalp
    Hi Guys, I've just changed the rear pads on my bike (a great leap of faith as I am not a mechanically minded man...). There is bit of lateral play (side to side rather than back and forth) in the rear calliper. The rear locking pin I have done up tight and thread locked as per the haynes...
  4. Honda Crossrunner

    News
    Straight from the Honda press release (sorry bit of a rush) (pics at the end) The Crossrunner represents the best aspects of two separate biking genres: the flexibility and exciting attitude of a Naked performance machine with the upright riding position and rugged appearance of an adventure...
  5. how can I bend a screen

    Mechanical Advice
    I need some lateral thinking Barney Bodgiters. Let's not talk about Transalp screen design, can someone give me any tips for bending the top 3-4 inches of a tall screen. You can't put it in an oven, as that might distort the bottom half and you'd never get it in. I tried a small blow torch on a...

    Mechanical Advice
    Hi wonder if anyone can help with a bit of lateral thinking. I absolutely refuse to pay megabucks for a bike specific Sat-nav unit and so plumped for a Navman S50 for £75 thinking i can pop it in the clear pocket of my tank bag bottom. but than got to thinking about these otter box things (but...

    Transalp
    I have just returned from a short tour of Spain & France and suffered a breakdown on the first day. Whilst moving off in first gear i heard a metal on plastic scraping noise which got faster as i accelerated. I removed the front sprocket cover and then the front sprocket retainer plate and...

  11. Leatt Neck Brace

    Product Reviews
    My Adventure Leatt brace arrived today. My wife took some piccies tonight to give you an idea of the positioning. Apologies for the ugly model but that's the best I coudl do :D First let me say that the restriction you expect from this brace is not at all as such. There is NO and I repeat NO...
  12. New to Dommie, only one misgiving

    Dominator / FMX
    Hi Guys, coming from a GS1100 (Three years ago) I can only say that where I live in West Ireland the dommie is a great bike. What a blast... But The front end does seem a bit vague sometimes. Is there a brace you can fit to stiffen up the front end. I don' t mean, damper or forks just lateral...
  13. transalp 600 (check your fixings)

    Transalp
    had a scare today, the lateral metal plate on the exhaust pipe, the one that passes below the rear brake lever, broke away from it foward clip fixing thingy, allowing it to pivot on the aft bolt, catch air & push out to the right (away from the bike) thus completely blocking the rear brake...
  14. Output Shaft

    Africa Twin
    Hi, I checked my output drive shaft earlier today and have a nasty feeling that it may need some attention in the near future. I don't think there is a problem with the bearing as there is very little lateral or radial movement, the splines, however, are looking very worn. I have compared the...
  15. RD07 Front Fork Oil Change (or not!)

    Africa Twin
    I see that Honda have designed these with no drain plugs. Honda Technical, say that fork oil replacement is no longer on the service schedule, unless a seal has to be replaced. I suppose that we never change the oil in the rear shock, which arguably has a harder time (less oil and more load on a...
  16. Knock knock

    Africa Twin
    I finally isolated where the noise is coming from on my AT this morning. It's coming from the nearside of the top end of the front cylinder, and the sound is a rhythmic knock. I'm assuming I have lateral play on the cam, though I haven't yet tried the trick where you listen to see if the sound...
  17. Side stand question

    Africa Twin
    I was lubing my chain at the weekend and noticed that, whilst on the centre stand, the side stand (which was still in the "down" position) had some lateral free play. If I pulled it towards me (not too hard as I didn't want to get squashed) I got about 1/2 cm free play. Quick question - is this...
