  1. Dynojet experiece

    Africa Twin
    My RD 4 seems to be running a little lean after i have installed a hi-flo filter and Arrow exhaust. I am thinking of fitting dynojets stage 1 kit, but is it worth the money? The Arrow is fittet with a sligtly opened-up db-killer.

    This is a strange one... When I start the bike on the side stand and use choke the bike idols around 1200rpm, BUT if i lean the Bike over untill it’s level then the revs climb to 2500-3000rpm. This only happens with the choke on. when I’m moving the bike on or off the side stand the handle...

  4. Free: Hein Gericke Toureg vintage Honda Racing RWB jacket

    XRV Swap Shop
    This is free as it came with the RD03 I recently bought. It's textile with leather shoulders and elbows. It is a size 54, which is too large for me otherwise I would keep it. I think it's from the 80s, but I have no way to verify that. Well used, but it's FREE. I can send pics if you want them.

  9. Rocker cover gasket leak

    Africa Twin
    Is this a known issue with the AT? Noticed a puddle on my garage floor, been dreading finding out the cause but it just seems to be the rubber gasket. From what I can see it looks fine though and I'm confused as to why a fairly durable looking gasket could just fail suddenly. Best pic I...

    Africa Twin
    Hi lads! I recently fitted some new tires, and to begin with I tried the 39psi on the rear, as indicated on the tire, and about the same on the front. It sounded like a lot compared to my old Anakees ... and I simply couldn't keep the bike going straight. When I leaned just a little, they...
  13. Idea to save bikes when they go off balance.

    Transalp
    How about a side stand each side of the bike that automatically flips out when stationary and leaning more than a few degrees to either side. Sure would save a lot of damage.:) Just an idea. Pete

    Africa Twin
    Hi guys, quick question (again). Can I lean out my RD07A front cylinder somehow (moving needle depth, air screws...)? The spark plugs are pitch black and she hammers along at 120km/h. It sounds impressive pulling strongly through the gears but i'm sure it's not the best. Any info is really...
