  4. Rev counter question

    Transalp
    On the 600 transalp it says on the rev counter X 1000/min - 1 I.e. To the power of minus 1 Why does it say that? Surely it should just say x 1000/min? Ie when the needle is at 4, that means the engine is doing 4000 revs per minute If you raise the revs or the minutes to the power of...

  11. Slight stumble on pickup

    Dominator / FMX
    I've now had my first short ride on the SLR and enjoyed it very much. It's so much lighter, narrower and more chuckable than the Strom. However, having EFI on my last 2 bikes has spoiled me a little. The SLR has a stumble just coming off idle which is a bit annoying. It feels as though it's a...

  16. Suspension linkage - Conversion to caged bearings?

    Africa Twin
    I'm in the process of renewing one of the bearings in the suspension linkage of my 2002 RD07A as it was a MoT failure. But I was wondering if it was possible to convert the loose needle bearings to sealed caged bearings. Has anyone done this? Is it worthwhile? What are the benefits? Iain
  17. Tis the season to be frozen..

    Africa Twin
    Has anyone any info on covering a part of the radiator to get it up to normal temps? The needle doesnt move at all and you can easily touch the radiator and its hardly warm at all. Mr Honda san doesnt mention it at all but he designed that bike for a toasty desert.:)
