  2. Africa Twin
    As the title states, is there a chance to adapt the different bits in/around the carburetors from a later model Africa Twin (RD07/a, which are noticeably less thirsty) to an earlier RD03, in order to make it a bit more fuel efficient? I'm not fully aware of their design/layout differences, so...

  7. Africa Twin
    Typical noob mistake I guess - I noticed the coolest was on the low side - just touching the minimum so off I went and bought some more, poured it in, thought I was being conservative but nope - over-filled (see pic).. First thought - as the bike heats and the coolant expands it'll flush out of...

    Hi all I have just bought a 700 Transalp and found this place so thought I would say hi..... HI!!! Ridden bikes on and off for many years and decided that the previous SV650 was not for me - I tend to like my bikes more upright just like the previous DR's 350 and 250, then the husky...
