    Any opinions on the speedometer overlays I have seen? I’m back in states with rd07a and would like to change speedo over to mph now from kph . This is a lot cheaper option versus full speedo replace. How hard if someone has done

  3. 2nd gear rattle.

    Africa Twin
    Hello! I did a quick search in the forum but didn't find anything similar to my issue. My 2nd gear rattles quite a lot when I open the throttle throughout all the rev range.

    Really hoping one of you knowledgeable folk on here can help as I'm having issues with the bike popping on tickover (tickover problems seem common for the nx650 by the looks of things).

  8. Camshafts on Austrian restricted AT model VS normal.

    Africa Twin
    Hi guys. I recently bought my first AT RD07. It`s an import from Austria, and I`ve learned that those models are restricted.
