  1. Oil Pressure and clutch Question

    Transalp
    I’m on changing the output shaft on my 700 XL and having started it up after the rebuild I am getting a very light noise from the clutch side, my question is there anything that is peculiar to the clutch to make it noisy. When I pull in the clutch lever the noise disappears. , there is also a...

  3. CRF1000L Windscreens & turbulence. Scepticism, humility and possibly poor spelling.

    Africa Twin
    CRF1000L Windscreens & turbulence. Scepticism, humility and possibly poor spelling. I thought I'd briefly share my journey to achieving the holy grail of a wind and turbulance free ride. Relatively, of course. So, standard screen was, to be frank, rubbish for me. Wind right in the face...

  5. 48,000 miles. Valve clearances?

    Dominator / FMX
    My '99 Dommie is getting close to 48,000 miles, I've had it 4 years and about 12,000 of those miles. It's due for an oil and filter change which I can do myself but I wonder if it's time for more complex work, like getting the valve clearances checked / adjusted, which I couldn't do myself. What...

  8. Let's Vote on a Screen Deflector (or not)!

    Transalp
    Right, I think we'd all agree that our beloved Trannie's (mines called Trinny by the way) have the very real potential to give us a right royal headache if the screen set up isn't right. Long and short of it is the last 6-700 miles I rode were ok, but could have been better. Very briefly, I...
