  1. Transalp
    After modifying my Vara screen & being quite impressed, the Transalp feels plain draughty & noisey. I reckon the way forward is multi layered & high. Modified MRA on the Vara (the MRA was rubbish as stock). I've been looking at a suitable donor screen for the Alp for some time, only when I...
  2. Africa Twin
    What's the closest chain which matches the DID 525 V8 Chain It's a standard genuine chain for the at. It's got smaller links compared to the DID 525 vx
  3. Varadero
    Hello All, I rarely post here but thought this might be useful. I ordered a PC3 for my 2003 Vara during the week, to try and get rid of the crappy low rpm fuelling. Bike would cough and splutter like a 50 a day smoker between 2-3000 rpm. Parcel turned up yesterday containing a PC5 ?? After a...

    Been to Morrisons late tonight with Herself and grabbed a huge bag of end of the day bread rolls and some nice rashers ready for Bacon rolls for brekkie .... Soooo looking forward to tomorrow morning's game. Sensible sort of time too, as I can get a game in and do some work, AND watch one of...

  6. Africa Twin
    The clutch cover on my 2002 is a showing signs of corrosion under the existing paint, so I'm going to clean it back and prime and paint it in situ. Can anyone advice what shade of paint (probably from Halfords) matches the existing Honda paint?
  7. Ride Reports and Pictures
    Hi all, thought I'd share my Saturday ride out with you all and also a few thoughts regarding new bikes from Honda! I left Elgin Morayshire at 10.00 this morning, no real plan other than the Crosstourer needed a run! (I took the Africa Twin to Galloway last weekend) I followed the river Spey to...
  8. Kids Weekend
    XRV kids weekend has been and gone so if you're thinking of coming it's too late so nah nah. Despite somewhat questionable weather :toothy2: it was the usual resounding success. Loads of new faces, some even from XRV :D. My apologies to Stuart because I didn't actually see him on Sunday morning...
  9. Varadero
    Hi, i have a brand new tank cover, in black with red stripe, for a varadero. Comes with tank bag that attaches and matches the cover. Thing is, I cannot fit it to my 2010 tank. Just will not go. Think the cover fits the early models, as it states 1999 varadero. Did the shape of the tank change...
  10. Transalp
    I currently have a '00 TA, but sadly I reckon the 54k is showing now. I've had a number of issues to sort recently but suspect that sooner, rather than later, something big is coming which I won't have skills/time/money for... So I'm in the market for a replacement. What should I look at? I...

  15. News
    I had no idea what to expect from the Crosstourer. But no matter what I wrote about it, I knew what I could expect from comments on xrv.org.uk: it’s not a new Africa Twin; Honda should make a new Africa Twin. Well, the Crosstourer is not the new Africa Twin. Its seat is comfortable, for a start...
  16. Africa Twin
    After having some hastles with my back brake, decided to properly service the front calipers too. Glad I did as it appears that there was some corrosion creeping in behind the dust seals pushing them out to jam the pistons (had a job getting them out). I've stripped them down and cleaned them up...

  18. Africa Twin
    Collar now matches cuffs.:grin::grin::grin: Got some dye from VinylDye.co.uk after seeing it mentioned here. Thought I'd give it a go as they would need spraying regardless of whether it worked or not. I'm very pleased with the results!
