  1. Speedometer overlay

    Africa Twin
    Any opinions on the speedometer overlays I have seen? I’m back in states with rd07a and would like to change speedo over to mph now from kph . This is a lot cheaper option versus full speedo replace. How hard if someone has done
  2. Digital Trip

    Africa Twin
    The digital trip on my 2003 07A has started to play games. The Clock works ok and the speedometer is fine. The digital trips work ok upto about 35 mph, then stops recording. When the speed drops it starts working again. I have checked all the plugs and sockets and opened up the trip meter and...
  3. Varadero - speedo healer

    Other Honda
    I've recently changed front sprocket down from 16t to 15t. The rideability is dramatically improved around town, but it throws out the speedo. 80mph indicated is in fact 70mph. This is something I can deal with, but the odometer is also out, throwing of total mileage the bike has covered (extra...
  4. Touring Tips

    I’m a strong believer in less is more when it comes to touring speed, a rider can withstand more hours at 65mph for example than 75, especially if they stop every hour for 10 mins rest. I’m riding 250 miles on Friday but in no particular hurry, so thought it might be fun to try a programme of...

    Mechanical Advice
    Strange one, when cruising home 30mph ish the bike seems to pulse like the throttle drops and then returns... I have a suspicion of the clutch plates/friction plates but wanted a second opinion Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Africa Twin
    Hello, Recently I started noticing a very high pitched singing/whining noise coming off the AT RD07A, can I can't seems to figure out where is it coming from. What I do notice is that it only appears above 80km/h - 50 mph and 4.5k RPM. Below that have not heard it. I also tried to pull the...

    How to.....
    Hi, this may have been covered but I see on ebay that a company do a pretty decent inlay for the speedo/dials for the RD04 anyone ever split these dials open to replace them? Could really do with swapping the KPH to MPH and the dials are faded pretty badly. any advice would be greatly...
  8. RD03 rpm per mph?

    Africa Twin
    Happily cruising at 75 today wondering how many rpms I'm doing. Haven't had a rev counter for a while and can't remember what it used to be, anyone know roughly how many rpms a RD03 would be doing at say 60, 70 and 80 in 5th? Cheers

  10. Batzen Screen Adjuster - CRF1000L - Anyone got one?

    Africa Twin
    Hi all, Still struggling with the screen on my new AT; Stock screen looks great but I get bad buffering above 50mph, my lower Powerbronze screen has no buffering, but no wind protection either :( I am thinking of getting the Batzen Screen adjuster, anyone got one and is it any good? I am 5ft...
  11. Kmh/ mph speedo face

    Africa Twin
    Hi guys, collected another RD07 AT for my mate, I think it's been a UK bike, as I can trace it from the Irish documents, emigrated to Poland, then Ireland and to Scotland via Northen Ireland. At some point the clocks have been changed and are now white kmh, he's not bothered a bout the mileage...

  13. Annoying noise!

    Africa Twin
    Hi, I'm hoping someone can help me identify a noise on my 1997 AT? It's best described as a whirring that is only audible when applying throttle and moving. You notice it from around 30mph and it sounds like it's from the chain/sprocket area? It goes off immediately on overrun but returns as...
  14. RD07A weight on rear rack

    Africa Twin
    The manual states max 27kg load weight but only 10kg on the rear rack, understand the recommendation but I'm sure riders exceeded this limit =) The reason I wonder is that I'm interested in the 58l Trekker Outback, the manufacturer blinds the specifications like their football team dives but...
  15. Is my Transalp 700 running as it should??

    Hi Everyone, Newbie here so please be kind. I have bought a 2008 alp 700 with 10000 miles on it about 1 month ago. I have put another 1000 miles on it and I am not sure it is running as it should. I am used to smooth Honda inline 4's and this is the first twin I have owned, so I have been...
  16. Thinking of a Varadero - advice needed

    Hi, I'm attracted to the Varadero as my Falco is just too uncomfortable and the Vara fairing seems to allow 90-100 mph cruising in comfort. My concern is that the off-road styling means that the exhausts are exactly where the panniers should go - photos I've seen seem to make the bike as wide...

  19. Highest top speed you've seen on your SLR/FX

    Dominator / FMX
    On the bike with the snorkel out, 15t front sprocket, baffles removed and 175 main jet I saw 103MPH on the speedo yesterday. Yes I know that indicated doesn't mean actual but it'll do for me. The engine was turning just over 6000RPM, it wouldn't rev out in 5th. I was tucked in as tight as...
  20. ADR compliancing a Transalp for Australian import

    Hi, Has anyone ADR Complianced a Transalp for Australian import recently (mine is mostly stock 1996 600)? Is there much to be done? Only changes I've found on here is that I need to cover up the mph on my speedo; not sure if that's just the 'MPH' or all of the numbers and markings as well...
