    Greetings fellow dommie enthusiasts. I'd be grateful for some expert input on this question. My '99 dommie has not been started for several months. There is ample oil in the engine, but the top oil tank is bone dry. (Oil check valve isn't working as it should?) Is it okay to start the bike...

  7. Smallest van to fit a 650 in

    Transalp
    I’m working down in Dorset and thinking of hiring a van to collect my bike one weekend, rather than spend 6 hours on the train and then 5 hours back mostly on motorways. It also means I can bring another suitcase of bits and pieces with me, I work at sea so spend months away at a time. Can I...

  10. New Prject

    Chatter
    For those amongst you that like to have a tinker in the workshop over the cold winter months, how about making a lamp like this one I found on the interweb.

  14. My 97 AT I just picked up

    Africa Twin
    I had passed on a few bikes and finally came acroos this 97 AT. It will do for now while I look for my RD04. I have an RD03 back in the states already so figured the rd04 will be good to have also. In the meantime 8 months w/o a bike and just a scooter was enough

    Africa Twin
    Going to look at an RD03 this weekend. Any specifics to look for? I will be checking wheels/front end for play, rust issues and just overall condition. My concern more for the sprocket spline issue I suppose. Other than worn splines anything else there to look for when I check it out. Hoping...

    Africa Twin
    Hi there, I've had my AT RD07A for a couple of months now and occasionally it stalls whilst riding. I can usually get it going again after a couple of minutes. This happens about every 100 miles or so. I've been advised that it might be a faulty fuel cut off relay rather than the pump itself...
