  1. Wanted: Longshot! XRV650 RD03 Carbs wanted

    For Sale / Wanted
    My carbs are worn past the point of repair and the only option seems to be some secondhand carbs; have seen them on eBay Germany in the past but not for a while. Haven't posted here for years but thought it might be worth a try. Anyone got some RD03 carbs lurking in the back of the shed? Cheers
  2. Heavy clutch on Transalp 650

    Transalp
    Afternoon. My first post here. Just acquired a scruffy 2002 Transalp 650. However, all seems reasonably sound with history etc. However, clutch seems very heavy, even with new cable. Before I dismantle, any thoughts please? Perhaps just bunged up with crud from the past 36,000 miles?

  5. Exaust tape/paste

    Africa Twin
    I finally ordered and recieved my new Arrow PD exhaust. Looking forward to getting it installed but Curious about what I call exhaust tape that is very similar to putty sort of. Does anyone use it over here? I notice a lot of folks using exhaust paste but that looks to be a messy setup. Any...

  7. Transalp XL700VA Engine Stops When Turning Right!

    Transalp
    I have a 2010 XL700VA with just over 19,000 on the clock. I use it to commute and only do about 50 miles per week. For the past few weeks, from time to time, the engine will cut out when I turn sharply right so it is always at low speed. It restarts OK but it is embarrassing! Any ideas why this...

    Travel
    Hopefully, I am putting this in the right place. I am planning on going to EICMA this year and was wondering if Thursday the 10th would be less crowded than Friday or Saturday. From what I hear last year was crowded the whole time. Would love to hear from those who have been there in the...

  11. Safety and Security for Driving

    Travel
    While the driving public may not have used dashboard camera systems in the past, that could change in the near future as drivers become more aware of the potential benefits. If you get into an accident or have another issue on the road, a dash cam may provide proof of what actually happened and...
  12. Passing Strangers

    Africa Twin
    Anybody riding past the prison in Swansea today on a @T. Was on the way back home from Singleton when someone riding a @T waved too me going the opposite direction, (same colour scheme as my avatar). Just managed to wave back in time. Great to see another @T rider out and about in the area.

  15. RD03 wheel offsets?

    Africa Twin
    Hello all, I'm buying some Excels for the RD03 and having them shipped to Woody's Wheel Works to have them laced and the hubs drilled to accept some thicker spokes. I, rather stupidly, decided to separate the hubs from the old rims before taking note of the offsets. I've talked to Woody's who...
  16. Welsh Invasion - Travel

    Welsh Invasion
    Thought I would ask if any of you are heading past my way to the Welsh Invasion? I will be leaving on the Friday morning. Not sure what way to go. I could go the quick way A34 - M4 etc or I could go the Witney - Burford - Gloucester - Monmouth - Brecon etc route. This would be a lot more scenic...

    Was hammering along this deserted stretch of road early this morning on the way to Skye in my trusty Vectra ;) Turned off before Lochcarron on the top road to Kyle.
