  1. Africa Twin
    OK so I'm on a roll now asking questions! Bike warms up lovely when stationary, temperature gauge showing where it should be however, as soon as I start riding gauge drops to zero. I'm guessing that either a/ Thermostat knackered b/ Thermostat doesn't exist. If either a or b I need to replace...

    Well, I’m back! First post for over two years. Been away from Honda, big mistake. Let me just say that Transalps are superb. Oh, a pain to work on the engine but..... :D Picked up Suki yesterday, a new to me 09 plate. Ahhhh, lovely ride. Anyway, back to tech... The rear brake pedal is 8 feet...

    Hi all, I hope you're all keeping well! Clearly I have too much time on my hands and too many ideas floating around in my head as my RD04 is undergoing further surgery... As a result, I am going to be selling my Boano fairing and headlight kit. From memory, these are £600+ new, so hopefully...

    Ok ,it's the middle of winter and before I go into a freekin' coma with this freeze-up. I though this might generate a bit of heat !! I need a PROPER XRV750 Replacement ! For some months now I've been excited by the prospect of a bike to properly stand tall on my AT side of the workshop. The...

    This bike is in better than showroom condition. I have stripped off any corroded parts and powder coated them. Also, changed most bolts with stainless steel, where permissible. Almost new tyres, new battery, re-spoked rear wheel, full service. Centre stand, 2 keys and owners manual. It runs and...

    A lovely 650 on an 02 plate with all the luggage and a strange oiler (not Scott). Am a little alarmed at the seating position tho. I think i will be forming a squeeky voice and a sorebum in no time! Are there resolutions to this issue?

    I have an RD04 in the lovely Benneton colours. Just under 70k miles, scruffy cosmetically but all there. Starts and runs fine, clucth and brakes are fine electrics all fine, rims corroded, SS exhaust, crash bars. Either a ride as it job or ready for a cosmetic makeover. New tyres and the chain...

    Hi all! I figure you guys are best fit to deal with this query. Have had my 2010 XL700 Transalp for 3 years (or will have come August) and it is a beauty of a bike, even if I have had to sort out some issues. However, the standard Honda exhaust silencer gave up yesterday and now instead of...

    Hi Guys, I will be heading to Wales at the end of the week and while I don't expect any issues I will be happier if I had breakdown cover. I actually have a new insurance policy starting on the 14th February with adequate cover but nothing before then. Is it possible to get short term cover...

    Hi All Has anyone fitted this new sprocket to their bike yet.After getting caught in the last panic over worn AT drive shafts I put my name down for one of these sprockets without really taking a look at mine first,Any way it turned up all good so thought I would put it on the bike. I removed...

    WOW!!! What a trip! So far i've done just 1434 miles from home in north Wales down to Calella near Barcelona in Spain. And what roads!!! (well apart from the motorways of course) They've been fantastic! They twist, they turn, they bend, they run straight and all the time the views have been...

    Hello everyone. Thank you for letting me join; this is my first post. I have recently acquired an XRV 750. It belonged to a dear friend of mine who died recently. The bike lived out on the street for a lot of its life so is rusty but it all works. Panels are cracked and the bolts have...

    Hi guys, Have recently acquired this lovely old bike. She goes well but as you can see, needs a bit of tlc. Am finding some parts ok but struggling over the front fender which is pretty well shattered. Anyone have such a thing in their garage or can perhaps suggest another which will be a good...

    A lovely condition off road/on road legend. The Africa Twin has been at the forefront of 'all purpose' bikes for more years than I care to remember and this one is no exception. This particular bike has done very little 'off road, work' so has remained in excellent physical condition for its...

    Hello, I recently changed my air filter, and went for a ride. It made a big difference - better sound and more low down torque. On this ride, I stopped for some fish and chips. Went to start my bike and the box next to the battery (relay?) made a clicking noise, but no power to the bike. I...

    So I failed an MOT on an exhaust hole I didn't notice had formed. Fast forward to today and a bit of the wire brush and I have a lovely hole and surrounding rust. I guess I can patch it somehow but not sure of best way. Someone mentioned a sleeve but if I can avoid removing the whole system...
