  2. Africa Twin
    Got my hands on a gratis Garmin Zumo 396LMT-S Motorcycle GPS, so decided to replace the TripMaster (which on mine was still fully functioning!) Anyway, I used my 3D printer to make up a bracket to mount the Garmin on the original tripmaster mounts. I have the 3D models if anyone wants to...

    Hello. The wife and I will be setting out for our first long distance trip on the bike. We originally planned on going to Ireland too, but have cut it down. We're going from Dover to Windsor tomorrow afternoon and then from Windsor to Lancaster on the 15th. On the 16th we'll be bumping around...
  4. XL
    Evening all. Im on the verge of buying an XL600LMF but have some questions I'd appreciate some views on; 1) The bike has a dicky tacho that seems to wonder all over the place. Looks like a sealed unit, so is there anybody that does repairs? 2) The engine doesnt idle well. I assume that its an...
  5. Mechanical Advice
    Bike wont start! Exhasut makes loud bang after piston change and setting cam timing. I got a stomp juicebox 3 110cc off my friend. He told me he was riding it and the bike slowed down and when he turned it off it wouldn't turn back on. I knew a bit about bikes and after searching forums and...
  6. Africa Twin
    Have just discovered that the spacers within the rear linkage are no longer available. Two of mine were completely seized, the smaller one where the shock attaches is available from Honda but neither of the longer ones are. Has anyone found a similar part that will fit or could be modified...

  13. Transalp
    can anyone recommend a decent cover for a 600 TA? I did a search on here but nothing came up. By 'decent' I mean something that stays on, packs up small and won't rip after a month...it's mainly for deterring opportunist thieves and similar vermin, rather than withstanding a hurricane. Amazon...

    So, I've got a Xrv750 - 96 and want to lift it and at the same time make it more offroad capable.. I've been reading a shit load about fork changes but in no thread anywhere does it mention how much lift the actual fork change made? I've read about Honda, yamaha and ktm Forks, all of them...

  16. Transalp
    Hi, Got a 2008 700 TA in december, stuck it in the garage - the Mrs has then filled the garage with crap so I can't get in from the garden and the youngest's car has broken down in front so I can't get in the front, hence the possibly silly question. Want to get a paddock stand for it (cheaper...

    One of my bulbs just was black inside, so I decide to replace both bulbs, but to something good and led :) I decide NOT to buy some cheap china crap, and was ready to pay. I make small issue, and found two companies Osram and Philips. Philips was better, but I didn't found this bulbs on ebay...
  18. Africa Twin
    Hi, Planning on flushing the coolant, can’t make out if I should use OAT (silicate free, red colour) or IAT. The bike has green stuff in it now, but I believe silicates ruin the water pumps on some bikes. Anyone know what I need to use, my manual doesn’t say anything helpful on the matter...

    If anyone is interested in purchasing a Fuel exhaust for their xrv750 then pm me. If there is enough interest then Fuel Exhausts will make a batch for us, they are not going to be releasing as an 'off the shelf' product so let me know. I personally had one on my Transalp and it was a good...
