  1. RD08 Carb inlet rubber

    Dominator / FMX
    My RD08 carb inlet rubber arrived today from Germany , it was only £20 but it was a 34bhp restricted one. A couple of hours with a rasp , file and fine sand paper and a lot of black dust it looks like I got a few more bhp out of the thing. All i need now are the jets and needle for my...

    Africa Twin
    Pouring out fumes from the drain outlet, and as luck would have it by it's design - exhaust grease nicely lubed my rear disc and pads ;) New can, and rear pads I reckon; I've looked for Laser cans and there's not many about so I'm thinking to buy an Arrow and miss the low down Laser roar, for a...
  4. Foam sock around the stock air filter for an RD03

    Africa Twin
    I will be riding dust for 3 weeks. Morocco and Tunisia. I wish to fit a foam sock over the stock paper filter. It is easier to clean a foam sock every other day than a filter ;-) Anyone has a source for such foam sock or am I the only dumbass to do that? :D Lee
  5. Oil Leak

    Mechanical Advice
    Hi chaps.. Got an oil leak on Africa Twin RD07A. It seems to be originating from the area of the oil filter. Drops of oil seem to drip onto the bash plate and from there drip onto the ground. Could just be the oil filter seal, but is there anything else in that area of the bike that might be the...

  10. Paper driving licence to photo licence

    A lady at work is adamant that if you have a paper licence you have until 2015 to change it to a photocard licence. It costs £20 to do that. All I can find is that from sometime in 2015 DVLA wont issue any more paper licences and I think that means that after that date if I reported my paper...
  11. Is there an aftermarket air filter for 650 Transalp? The holy grail is a washable one

    The paper element air filter in my 650 TA is on its last legs. I moved from the UK to Aus a few years ago, so I get to trailride in deserts occaisionally, which means that cleaning the airfilter can be a daily task as they get really clogged on the very dry dusty days. The ideal would be one...

  13. Driving bans

    What's the longest driving ban that you've come across? I certainly don't recall any long driving bans being handed out in the UK.

  15. Fuel filter for 650

    Was thinking of installing an inline paper fuel filter (Mahle KL13) to my 650. Anyone installed such filter? Flow of petrol is reduced?
