  1. Taller back suspension

    Africa Twin Technical Specs
    Hello. I am about to install to my rd07a a taller back suspension from a ktm. The question is: if the suspension is, lets say, 1cm taller how much taller would the back side of the bike become? Something like x3 ratio or no?
  2. How much extra power output

    Africa Twin
    Is there much extra power on an RD03 for lights etc? May be selling my concours c14 and would like to hookup the led driving lights it has on it to the AT. Also would like a couple accessories outlets . I have an eastern beaver fuse box setup I would run everything through. Thanks

  10. Just Thinking Aloud Here

    Yesterday I was out on my 2005 TDM900 which is valued at about £3500. Today I was out on my 1993 Africa Twin. This is more difficult to value, but lets say £1500. So that is 5 grand in total.What I was wondering was; is it better to have two bikes as I do, or is it better to have one bike i.e. a...
