    Recommended Dealers/Service Providers/Campsites
    Hi everyone I have been using a guy called Darren Yorwerth for a couple of years now for any bespoke machined & fabricated parts I have needed for my bikes. He's based in Wales & typical examples of what he's done for me are stainless steel extra heavy bar end weights to get rid of vibes, see...
  3. Machining a hub to take a bigger bearing

    Mechanical Advice
    Hi all, I'm after some advice on the best way to sort out a problem with my hub. Checking my bike over a few days ago I noticed that the rear hub had a lot of play, I was surprised because it's only September since I had the hub powder coated and then rebuilt with new bearings and a new rim...

  5. Xl125 starting problem

    XL
    I am not an expert but recently bought an xl125 1984 in red all original. When bought it started first kick but rattled its head off after a strip down found the cam bearing part was worn badly so it was machined by a good engineer so there is no play up and down on the cam. Assemble engine...
  6. Educate me on suspension

    Africa Twin
    I really could use an education on suspension. I have a RD03 with a stock front and progressive springs. I changed the oil and replaced it with the advised amount. I don't notice much of a difference. I've decided that an upgrade is in order. I know that I also need to do the rear (at least...
  7. Output shaft rd04

    Africa Twin
    I've been looking into getting a sleeve made to go over the output shaft on my bike. I've been told that making a sleeve would not solve the problem of the shaft wearing. The only way,would be to re temper the shaft. Using electricity to heat it up,then quench it in oil slowly to add carbon from...
  8. Front fork upgrade (Boano Sachs 48mm USD Fork Kit) - need advice on current works

    Africa Twin
    Hi all after a lot of thinking (and calculation on how much stress my bank account can endure) I went for the Boano Sachs 48mm USD Fork Kit and a matching rear wheel Öhlins shock absorber for my '98 AT. So far everything went according to plan (shock absorber is in place, steering head...
  9. Headstock curtain call?

    Africa Twin
    Hi peeps, long time no speak. Some of you might remember my badly damaged AT of a couple of years ago. I finally got myself together enough to make a proper go of fixing it up with some replacement bits and have been messing around recently with some new(ish) forks, but having pulled the...
  10. XR400R sidestand on a 93 TA?

    Transalp
    I'm very close to being able to SM my TA. It will only cost me the price of a machined front axle to match the TA forks to my old XR Sm front wheel. Now, somewhere, in either my storage lock-up or the garage at the other end of town is a cut down XR sidestand that I modified so that the XR...
  11. Wanted: Africa Twin rear hub

    Africa Twin
    Hi, hope I'm in the right place, first post and all. I have a rather bizarre problem with my recently purchased AT (1997 RD07). The rear hub has been machined wrong from the factory. This means that the axle is slightly off centre, particularly on the right side. I initially thought this was...

  13. Which would be cheaper/less hassle?

    Mechanical Advice
    The snows have finally receded and I fired up the Transalp for the first time since I garaged it in November just before the onset of another harsh winter. Now that it is ready to play on tarmac and not ice, I found myself contemplating last years SM wheel plan. Both SM wheels come from my...
  14. USD forks on an Africa Twin

    Africa Twin
    Just a quickie I thought I'd mention to all of those people that love performance upgrades for AT's. Last weekend I visited Rugged Roads HQ, in a secret underground bunker location, to collect some parts I'd ordered. Whilst being escorted through the R&D department my blindfold slipped and I...

    Finally, what we've all been waiting for, and what Honda and other after market part makers couldn't be bothered to give us!! Rugged Roads have answered the prayers of owners of the RD07 and RD07a models who have experienced failure of the plastic nuts that retain the choke plungers and guide...
  16. Sold: 1150GS bar risers

    For Sale / Wanted
    a long shot I know but I thought I'd give it a go. I've got a pair of risers for the 1150GS, I put them on and didn't get on with them so took them off after a couple of days. I'll let them go for £15 and will bring them to the national if anyone wants them. or post them out at cost...
  17. Removing TA650 Emissions Rubbish

    Transalp
    One of the fettling jobs on my latest bike was to replace the carb rubbers. So, while the airbox was off and the carbs out, I decided to investigate the emissions system that adds fresh air into the exhaust ports. It's a fairly simple system. There is a drilling through the cam cover all the...
  18. Rear wheel bearing seat depths

    Africa Twin
    Hi, Does anyone know what the rear wheel bearing seat depth is each side? I may have to get the hub machined and spacers put in, so the depth from the outside edge of the hub to each seat (left and right side)would be much appreciated!! have looked at wider bearings, but this way I can use...

  20. For Sale: Exhaust / Silencer

    For Sale / Wanted
    I have an original exhaust from my '97 RDO7 which I'm happy to see off for £20. It's still in good condition, only not needed because I replaced it recently with a Remus Revolution. There's a couple of tiny holes on the underside of the exhaust. They look machined though, like they've been...
