  1. Africa Twin
    OK so I'm on a roll now asking questions! Bike warms up lovely when stationary, temperature gauge showing where it should be however, as soon as I start riding gauge drops to zero. I'm guessing that either a/ Thermostat knackered b/ Thermostat doesn't exist. If either a or b I need to replace...
  2. Transalp
    something odd is happening to this forum my posts keep disappearing. i made two new posts to the ebay/gumtree thread, and another to the Africa Twin forum, and now they have gone has anyone else noticed this?
  3. Transalp
    Thinking of buying a 600TA and have seen this one https://www.gumtree.com/p/cars-vans-motorbikes/honda-transalp-600-rally-touring/1294269216 The owner has sent me a photo of the frame number (looks exactly how it should) to check with hpi. However the bike is registered as blue, when I would...

I was going to get one of a chap here but TBH i messed him about a bit as i left the mrs after 20 odd years...

    DID Chain - 525ZVMX124 Super-Street ZVM-X-Series Heavy Duty Black Hi haven't been on on here for a while ,but purchased one of the above to fit to my RD07A having snapped a JT chain last year which took out the water pump in its haste to exit the front sprocket ,I thought I would buy the best I...
  6. Africa Twin
    Ok ,it's the middle of winter and before I go into a freekin' coma with this freeze-up. I though this might generate a bit of heat !! I need a PROPER XRV750 Replacement ! For some months now I've been excited by the prospect of a bike to properly stand tall on my AT side of the workshop. The...
  7. Transalp
    Odd question I know Fan switch was faulty and welded solidly in place in my 1994 600 Transalp I fitted a manual switch instead, and although it is just replacing the original fan switch I am now obsessing if somehow the fan is running the wrong way. When in heavy traffic the fan doesn't seem...
  8. Transalp
    Thought I'd post this up, to see if anyone has had a similar issue. A few weeks ago, my 1994 TA suddenly stopped firing on one cylinder. It had been running spot on when I put it away in the garage. Came to start it and it would only run on the front cylinder. I checked the CDi, and sure enough...
  9. XL
    I have a knack of acquiring spares. They end up left on the floor after I put things back together. :/ Anyway, last night I finally got round to changing the sprockets and chain on my 1981 XL185. Everything came off and went back on as I expected but when I was tidying up tools afterwards I...
  10. For Sale / Wanted
    Hi all. Finally managed to acquire an AT I was after for a while. Busy getting things apart / cleaned and back together in my spare time. So, I am looking for a centre-stand to help me clean things up. I am a bit surprised that it didn't come wit one. I saw other people recommending...
  11. Accessories
    Just thought I'd post up some thoughts on the above charger. It's a compact gizmo built around a DIN plug that enables you to charge two USB gadgets simultaneously. It's voltage sensitive so switches itself off when the input voltage drops below a predetermined number, designed to protect...
  12. Transalp
    Bought my first transalp 2 weeks ago, one small problem The tail light bulb, works running but no brake light, pulled the bulb out filament seems ok, but, I want to buy a spare bulb to see if the bulb is the issue befoer changing brake switches, here is the real problem, the bulb is an odd one...
  13. Transalp

  14. Chatter
    I have just had my first test ride on my Dommie since I fitted the Keihin FCR41mm flatside carb and the modified footrests that my son got welded up for me.:D:D:D My first thoughts were "holy crap" and WTF as the bike shot off like a scolded cat....:D:D:D If any of you Dommie riders have not...
  15. Transalp
    Iv'e got the rear cylinder valve cover off as I am pretty sure the gasket was weeping I got a whiff off burning oil some time last summer when I parked up. When I had the shock off last week I noticed a smear of engine oil on top of the exhaust manifold so thought I had better have look at it...
  16. Bikes For Sale / Wanted
    This is a slightly odd one. This 750 Africa Twin is looking a new home and is priced at £5000. I'm not sure what model or year it is or of AT values, however there's a wee story to this one. The owner has just recently passed away and his family want the bike to go to a good home. All monies...
  17. Africa Twin
    Hi all, I am thinking of getting a Shoei Hornet ADV lid :D but I have seen the odd You Tube Vid and comment about ADV helmets vibrating or there's extra noise because of the "fork tunnel" on the AFrica Twin CRF1000L - basically wind / air streaming up through the forks that disrupts the 'peak'...
  18. Transalp Technical Specs
    New to this forum and just picked up a poorly looked after 87 Transalp. I owned one in 1987 and it is what really got me into adventure riding. This one is gonna need some love and that's where you guys come in. I have a odd collection of bikes in the garage right now but this transalp is...
  19. Dominator / FMX
    I have an electrical problem which is getting progressively worse. It started off not wanting to start on the odd occasion - unless i turned the lights on and then off again - then starter would run. then it did it all the time. Have to flash the lights before starting. Now indicators wont...
  20. Transalp
    I've had my 650 Transalp for about 7 years, and 40,000 odd miles. What would you suggest as a suitable, up-to-date, successor? A new Africa Twin would be exceedingly nice, but, being realistic, I should be looking for something lighter and less tall than the TA (and no more than £4-5000). Would...
