  1. For Sale / Wanted
    Now that I've moved over to an Africa Twin I have a few Pooratech protection bits for sale. These were made by myself to go on my Transalp XL700V (ABS). The parts are all made from stainless steel. They have been on my old bike for about 6 years but still look in good condition. They've not...
  2. For Sale / Wanted
    Hi , I'm looking for a straight front sub-frame as mine got bent in a fall. It's like the one in the picture. Would you have one in straight condition? If so, please PM me. Cheers Pete
  3. Transalp
    Hi, Would anyone (preferably in the UK) have a straight headlamp/fairing sub frame they may be interested in selling? (Picture attached.) Don't mind if it's rusty and in need of painting as long as it's not bent. If so, please send me a message with how much you'd like for it posted to Surrey...
  4. Transalp
    Hi, I have a red 1999 XL600V Transalp with a damaged headlamp cowl. I have found a replacement cowl online which is red but I'm not sure the colour will match. Does anyone know if there were different shades of red used on this model/year? I've attached a picture of my bike. It's quite an...
  5. Africa Twin
    Hi guys, I wanted to restore the white paint for the dashboard light controls (Fuel, High-Beam...) of my RD03 (and I would not mind to do the same for the RD07). I thought my patience would have been enough but I found out the characters are too small for free painting, even with the thinnest...
  6. XL
    Hey all! I purchased a 1976 XL 250 recently, and it came with two engines, neither of them complete. I've been working on the 1972 engine, as it is in better and more complete condition. It was missing some covers, such as the valve adjustment covers and the alternator cover. I'm currently...

  8. Africa Twin
    Hello all ! This winter i want to rebuild my beloved AT as it already eats some oil - about 1l/1000km or so. I bought 8 years ago an complete engine with about 35.000 km, or so the seller told me. Anyway, i kept this engine in storage for 8 years and before i`ll put it on my bike i wanted to...
  9. Africa Twin
    Hi Guys, sorry for first post and instant questioning :) Hope you gonne help me anyway... I just brought me RD07 from Germany to New Zealand and now I am about to get it road legal here. So I assume I have to change the head light. Because the bike was not used really the last years I am not...
  10. Transalp
    Hi again, Wondering is anyone could guide me on this: I need a new caliper (the one on the right at the front). Can you still get a new one and or do I need to get a used one? If I get a used one, is this part specific to this model Transalp or can I search other (perhaps) more common bikes...
  11. Dominator / FMX
    any info please on "air vent tubes" coming out of a 1999 NX 650 Dominator, where do they connect to after leaving the carb . One comes from a small diagphram on the side of the carb (air cut off ? ) and another from the front of the carb toward the inlet manifold . They join in a T piece over...
  12. Transalp
    Sadly not a post I thought I'd ever have to write.. ***Stolen*** Corporation Street, Stafford, Uk Some kind souls have decided to relieve me of my '89 transalp (reg: K826DDC) (late import). Most likely happened the night of Tuesday 13th March / morning of Wednesday 14th but could have been...
  13. XR
    I'm looking for a place to install an oil temperature sensor. Does anyone know the purpose of this bolt (center of picture) and what the clearance behind it looks like?
  14. Varadero
    Bored with your Varadero? Enter "Project Varatrackerstorm or Firetrackerdero" I’ve been thinking of this project since coming across a picture of a VTR engined tracker years ago. To me it looks spot on, everything fits just right. I’ve been studying the picture/screen background for...
  15. Africa Twin
    As RD04 is the only variant of the XRV650/750 I have not owned and this was local it was worth a look and there was space in the garage as I sold a CX650ED.A 1992 with 25000 miles. Does anybody recognise it, I brought it from a guy near Ledbury that has had it since August 2014 and he brought...
  16. Varadero
    How much of the bike did you have to disassemble to mount the 2 parts (one on each side of the bike) shown in the picture here? I took all the plastic of the bike but did not have any room to mount the due to a lot of cables and what I think is the engine cooler (don't know I its correct in...
  17. Chatter
    Greetings from Denmark. A few months I posted a picture of my sons latest project. This one has been on hold as jnr has spent all his money getting his other one sorted. I donated a pair of CX silencers as the originals are donald ducked and told jnr he can have them if he can make em fit so...
  18. Africa Twin
    Interesting to read Prova di durata moto Honda Africa Twin, long test di affidabilità: risultati finali e inconvenienti - Motociclismo What do you think about that cylinder wear on the picture? Honda says it is normal for their engines!? Corrosion on the exhaust also doesn't look good for a...
  19. Dominator / FMX
    So like an idiot my GoPro was not turned off. I got hit by a car from behind at a roundabout. I got to the front of the queue and was waiting for a space to enter the roundabout when I pulled away and then got hit from behind by the car behind me. I have photos to show the fuel leak on the...
