  1. Barkbusters limiting steering movement - RD04

    Africa Twin
    Hi, mt AT (Catweasel's) has barkbusters and they limit the steering. They hit the fairing before end of the normal range of movement and I think they are why my steering lock won't engage. Any tips before I start grinding bits away? Cheers, Stewart.
  2. RD03/04 engine rebuilding possibly

    Africa Twin
    Well I've been in Europe 6 months now and yet to get a bike. I've been looking for an RD 04 since I have been here as I have an RD03 stateside already and wanted something different. Everything seems to be to far away or I just don't get to it in time coupled with the fact I was looking for a...

Unfortunately a lot have been closed over the years so there may be a bit of road work involved to form a...
  5. What tyres for my XL600R?

    What are the options for off-road biased tyres for my XL600? 90/90 - 21" front 130/80 - 17" rear (which seems to be the limiting factor) Conti TKC80's Pirelli MT21's Both of which I've used before on my AT and XT250 respectively. What else is out there? I'm favouring TKC's at the moment.

  8. Anyone near Abercrave?

    What's the weather (and more importantly the ground) like just now? I'm coming down on Thursday to do the BMW off road skills doo dah and I'm just hoping it's not knee deep in show. While snow is fun it's a bit limiting in what you can actually do off road.

    Ride Reports and Pictures
    Had a nice ride out today just around local, makes me realise I need to get rid of my stock front mudguard as this is currently the biggest limiting factor on the bike! Enjoy. . Then cleaned and put to bed ;)

  12. waterproof video camera

    Product Reviews
    Here's a suggestion for people considering filming their biking. I recently bought this Sanyo Xacti C65 waterproof digital video camera. It costs as little as about £150. It uses SD cards, so I fitted an 8gb card. It can be hand held but has a standard tripod mount on the bottom, so I bought...
  13. Rear Luggage

    Africa Twin
    Howdy folks, On the @ and previous bikes ive owned, there is a weight limit of 10kg that can be carried on the rear rack. I guess this is Hondas way of limiting any claims :rolleyes: (plus keeping the bike stable of course) How much weight do you think the rear rack could REALLY take - (im...
