  2. Fuel pumps - will an RD04 fit an RD03?

    Africa Twin
    Fuel pump playing up again, going to swap the points but would like to pick up a spare. RD03 pumps don't seem to be available but pumps for later models are. There looks to be quite a difference in list price which makes me wonder if they are very different, any one tried fitting a later OE...

  5. 2011 XL700V Transalp and stuttering at low revs

    Transalp
    Hi, I'm the proud owner of a 2011 Honda XL700V Transalp and am still getting used to riding it. One thing that I'm not sure if it's normal or not though is that the bike stutters (like it's about to stall) between 1500 and 2000 revs consistently. This makes commuting in Central London somewhat...

  9. Renthal Bars

    Transalp
    At my recent MOT the garage pointed out that the bards on my 1996 alp were bent and needed replacing. I guess renthals are my best option now, but looking at various forums the dakar highs seem to be the consensus, but I cant see them for sale anymore. Which renthal bars currently for sale...

  13. Which screen

    Varadero
    I am sure this has been asked before but I am quite a new varadero rider, I am only 5'10'' tall but the stock screen still doesn't seem to protect me that match. I have tried to put some rubber spacers in to provide a gap but this has not helped much and it is as high as it can go. What do...
