  1. XL700V - flashing oil warning with no oil loss

    Transalp
    How do I'm after some help/advice about the oil warning lights on the 700. Riding in to work today - second day back after a week or so off - and one of the red lights on the dash starts flashing. Initially it blinked a couple of times, but then came on and off under acceleration and braking...
  2. Only crappy when it rains

    Dominator / FMX
    My indicators pack up when it rains. The lights come on but don’t flash. Same whether left or right is selected. All bulbs working ok. I’m no electrician and wouldn’t know how to use a meter to trace a fault. But given that all four bulbs work, the problem occurs on both sides and the switch...

  4. Blown bulb

    Dominator / FMX
    My dommie’s tail light failed on the way home last night. The first clue was when a trucker flashed his lights at me after I passed him on the M25. A couple of others flashed but it’s remarkable how many of my fellow motorists didn’t! Also remarkable what a faff it is to get to the bulb. Both...

  6. Another dead RD07...

    Africa Twin
    OK, so I got home the other day, put bike away as normal, no problems, but next day...nothing. No lights, nada, dead. Getting in there with my multimeter, I diagnosed a knackered ignition barrel, swapped it for a new one from David Silver and the bike started first time, roared into life. Great...
  7. MIL Light Come on

    Transalp
    Hi Chaps, XL700VA, 2008 with 20K miles on the clock. Riding along a few weeks a go, on full throttle the engine cuts. Roll the throttle back off and it picks up again. Every time I open the throttle the engine dies, but picks up again when I roll it off. Bike is un rideable. No MIL . Turn it...
  8. Starter relay problem.

    Transalp
    The ‘93 600 TA I just bought has had a bit of a meltdown in the relay/regulator area, but been repaired and has run okay for quite a while. Apparently. When I bought it I pulled the panels, tank and seat off just to have a general inspection. I pulled a few wires out, checked connections and...
  9. Engine missing a beat at idle?

    Africa Twin
    My 1994 RD07A is intermittently missing a beat at idle? It does need some carb work and is idleing a little high. But every once in a while it seems to have a little hiccup. There is a mechanical “click” sound then a miss in the RPMs. It’s just for an instant, then returns to normal. This...
  10. XL700V - temperature gauge going bananas

    Transalp
    Hello folks I'm hoping you can help me pinpoint the cause of a peculiar looking issue with the 700. A bit of background; I've had the bike for a couple of years and recently had the engine rebuilt by a Honda dealer to repair a stripped output shaft. The splines the sprocket mounts onto had...
  11. RD07 GFK rear tank fuel line

    Africa Twin
    Greeting from Austria! Since i saw many Twins with rear tanks in this forum, i got to ask you a few questions. Short story: I bought a modified RD07 1995 last year which needed some love, stripped it this winter, removed everything the previous owner built, checked and overhauled pretty much...
  12. dashboard lights mask for painting

    Africa Twin
    Hi guys, I wanted to restore the white paint for the dashboard light controls (Fuel, High-Beam...) of my RD03 (and I would not mind to do the same for the RD07). I thought my patience would have been enough but I found out the characters are too small for free painting, even with the thinnest...

    Following the theft and subsequent recovery last March of my old transalp 600 (in pieces). I'm now gearing up for a project. I have most big parts from my alp here with a frame from a bike a friend broke for spares. As this will never be/feel like the same bike it was, I'm planning a few...
