  1. Heavy Duties centre stand?

    I've bought their centre stand for the TA700 but it came with no instructions and a quick search here revealed no hints about the general fitting method. So... Do I need to take anything off the bike? A quick look seems to show the side stand in the way. Do I grease the hinge pin during...

  7. 2000 AT cutting out/ loosing power

    Africa Twin
    Guys My newly aquired AT has been loosing power and cutting out intermittantly for a month since I bought it. It seems to be fairly random but was becoming more frequent in the first mile after starting it up. Typically it will start again and may not give any further trouble for even long...
