    Hi everyone! I recently remove the tank, airbox and carburators to change the main jets after changing to a more open exhaust. Know putting everything back I have a small problem... There is several fuel overflow or drain lines connected together to one main line that dumps excess fuel it...

    Hi guys. I don't see how this makes sense ... but let me ask! After installing kitpeds raiser kit (+6cm front and back) & removing db killer, my clutch slips. Before I had no issue whatsoever (RD04 from 1992 with 87000km). I checked for free play on the clutch lever and there is more than...
  3. Africa Twin
    Hello! I did a quick search in the forum but didn't find anything similar to my issue. My 2nd gear rattles quite a lot when I open the throttle throughout all the rev range. The rattle occurs only in 2nd gear and only during aceleration. I'm sure it comes from the gearbox and it's not something...
  4. Transalp
    Hi Chaps, XL700VA, 2008 with 20K miles on the clock. Riding along a few weeks a go, on full throttle the engine cuts. Roll the throttle back off and it picks up again. Every time I open the throttle the engine dies, but picks up again when I roll it off. Bike is un rideable. No MIL . Turn it...

    Just wondering whether anyone knows of a suitable source for replacement barrel lock for my Honda Topbox on my Transalp XL700? The one on at the moment is getting more and more fiddly to open every day and is only a matter of time before it refuses to open. The OE replacement lock set is Honda...

    I just had my first go at logging in using my new smart phone and the tapatalk app, only to be confronted with at least 6 new posts that seemed to originate from me. I quickly signed out, and logged in with my tablet to get the view I'm used to, expecting to have to advise that I'd been hacked...

    I'd like to experiment with a modification to the rear brake lever of my XL700 Transalp but want to keep my original lever in case it goes horribly wrong! Are the splines the same across the different Transalp models (or any other Hondas)? This would open up the choice of spare parts/price...
  9. Africa Twin
    Hi, I intend blanking off the chokes on my AT. Will I remove the chokes completely, or fix them permanently in the open position? If I remove them, what will I use to cap the opening? Regards, Pat F.

    TA 650 (probably applies to all models though) For anyone thinking of doing this..on the 650 its a bit of a job. The Haynes manual says you just "attach the lower end of the new cable to the upper end of the old cable, and just pull the cable through", yeah, right. What it fails to mention...
  11. Dominator / FMX
    Hi there, I have a 99' fx650 which I purchased to refurb and modify. I do not know how it ran before it was dismantled. It was only started. I have now rebuilt after refurb and I'm having trouble with engine hesitation with throttle open. I have put a larger main jet (175) as it has a custom...
  12. Africa Twin
    Hi there, Well its winter again here in northern Germany. Bloody freezing and damp. I have a choice of parking my pristine AT in a damp garage, which I air as much as possible, or under a car port where it will stay dry with no problem with air flow. The bike gets a coating of moisture in the...

  14. Dominator / FMX
    Hi to all, I am currently facing an issue with my FMX. While it does not smoke not at all (at least not visibly) when it warms up (very hot) it starts to smokes (mainly from the right exhaust). This however does not happen every time that the motor warms up, so the occurrence is irregular. I...
  15. XR
    Hi All, I've just recently aquired an 93' XR650L and it didn't run well initially. Symptoms where popping once in a while while driving, but also when standing still, dropping gas to idle, it ran for around 15 secs and then one pop in the exhaust and boom stop :-) I reckoned it was running to...

    These hein gericke performance shell trousers with vents have been brilliant and have only changed after getting some rukka stuff. Size wise I was a 40 and they fit just right but they will go up or down a bit on that. They are fully waterproof and with liners out and vents open brilliant in...
  18. Africa Twin
    Hi All. The throttle on my bike recently became stiff to the point it would stick open. Before this it was working fine and there were no changes to the routing of the cables etc. I took it apart and it all looks ok. I put oil down the lines and they are totally free. I cleaned the carb end...
  19. Africa Twin
    Two years ago I had to remove my original exhaust from my RD03 because it was so badly corroded internally, I fitted a GPR Exhaust temporally until I could get my original restored. In Rostov, Russia I met a custom bike & exhaust builder called Pasha, i sent the exhaust to him and 2 months...
