Hi, I'm a newcomer to Africa Twin's world. But i'm already loving it! Just bought a RD04 1990 and my first problem is that the turn signals are out. I assume it is the relay but... can't found it! Can anyone help?
Assume gear lever was worn, purchased new one, shaft also worn :( would it be ok to weld for now? I assume it's engine out and strip etc ?
Any other ideas ?
Could I drill through pedal and shaft tap it then add grub screw ?
What options do I have

Does anybody have some photos of there rd04 with gold excel wheels? I'm finally getting round to finishing my 1990 rd04 and I'm struggling to decide if to go black or gold. I wanted gold but the excels are quite a different gold to the originals and black look really nice and more modern...
Honda XR400 Acerbis plastics kit. Original factory shape and includes front fender, rear fender, and side number plates.
Think they fit XR250 also.
Used but very serviceable condition.
Item located near Canterbury, Kent - happy to arrange postage.
just installed this weekend manual cct on my Dero. The bike feels smoother at idle but rolling it seems a struggle a little or could be just placebo I dont know.
Should I turn off 1/4 on the mcct? will be need to put the engine at TDC?
So i have this problem i think it's common but not sure exactly where or what i could be looking for

A new post because I need help. I am about to complete full restore of my motorbike. 2 monthes ago, I start the engine and stop it quickly. And I never succeed to restart again.

I've owned my 98 rd07a for about 4 months now and it's the first bike i've not wanted to part with. It's amazing!!! You just think your way down the road and voila! So stable it's like surfing a 10ft Malibu!! I've had all kinds of bikes (all smaller) and have always planned on some big...
Good day all you lucky Africa Twin riders.
I'm currently doing a rebuild project on my Transalp and one of the mods is of course a rd04 tank. A tank from Greece should be arriving soon but in the meantime I've completely forgot about the petcocks and the fuel sensor. Was completely unfazed by...
My bike already had a Remus Revolution muffler. Nice and light, but also perhaps a bit too noisey even with the db killer. Seeing that the DR 650 crowd seemed to have experimented with GSXR / Hayabusa muffler with great success, I decided to to try something. Fit a Suzuki SV1000 muffler on my...
