  2. Transalp 600 (1994) Fan direction?

    Odd question I know Fan switch was faulty and welded solidly in place in my 1994 600 Transalp I fitted a manual switch instead, and although it is just replacing the original fan switch I am now obsessing if somehow the fan is running the wrong way. When in heavy traffic the fan doesn't seem...
  3. Trip master not working and fixed

    Africa Twin
    Went out to start my AT the other day and noticed the Tripmaster wasn't powering up, oh no I thought I just did the resistor mod for the speed a couple of weeks ago and I've messed up, did some checking and found a corroded looking terminal on the multi-plug.

  5. Manifold studs, bolt - WTF am I going to do here.

    Dominator / FMX
    OK guys sorry for the WTF but I have had this bike two years in February 2017 and since I have had the bike I have know there has been a slight blow from the exhaust manifold.

  9. Messed up the speedo needle

    Hey Guys, Been fiddling with the speedometer, as the old owner made some interesting changes, things happened, and I overturned the needle, to where the spring snapped. 1) Am I right in thinking, that if I twist it back around clockwise and glue it back to the snapped bit, it should work and...
  10. Bash Plate and front fender attraction

    Africa Twin
    So I'm becoming quite disappointed with my attempts to fix the AT front fender and bash plate connection. I don't feel like I am a very aggressive rider. When I ride with others I am always at the end of the pack. However, I am constantly getting the front fender jammed up under the bash plate...
