  1. Chain slider (lower front) on XRV650

    Africa Twin
    I'm looking for some help on the mounting of the chain slider. I've been working on a restoration and it has been some time since I've been at it due to health reasons. When I went to put the slider on, the mounting point does not seem to be right. I'm wondering if one of the points has been...
  2. Dominator gauge-block differences on diff. generations

    Dominator / FMX
    Hello! A quick question: are there any differences in the back-cover (most importantly in mounting points) of the speedoblock depending on the generation, i.e. are they identical and/or swappable? Happened to break the mounting ears on mine of a 1995 RD08 while carelessly tackling a motocross...
  3. AT 750 Sumguard on TA 650

    Transalp
    I've seen multiple people on this forum fit an AT sumpguard on their 650 Transalp's. But how? :o I don't think the mounting points line up. The AT one has 2 in the front instead of the TA's 1... I found a user named Tramp talking about a recent post he made where he explained it but i can't seem...
  4. SLR, FX, FMX Swing-Arm

    Dominator / FMX
    I’m pretty sure all the above use the same basic frame, so the dimensions i’m after should be the same. Could someone with a Swing-Arm from one of these measure the front pivot width. That would be the outer width, i.e. the width required in the frame and also the inside width, i.e. the width...

  6. Fuel pumps - will an RD04 fit an RD03?

    Africa Twin
    Fuel pump playing up again, going to swap the points but would like to pick up a spare. RD03 pumps don't seem to be available but pumps for later models are. There looks to be quite a difference in list price which makes me wonder if they are very different, any one tried fitting a later OE...

  8. Honda designs new adventure bike?

    Transalp
    https://www.morebikes.co.uk/44181/gotcha-hondas-next-wave-adventure-bike-revealed/ And whilst this motorcycle doesn’t ape back to the glory days of Honda’s early Adventure motorbikes like a Transalp or an XR, it does ape the styling and key selling points of that original German bike from...

    Africa Twin

  11. Rear subframe corrosion

    Dominator / FMX
    The first thing to say is that my Dommie is very much a winter hack, ridden in all weathers, rarely cleaned, not a concours show bike by any stretch... so it’s not a massive surprise to see some corrosion on an 18 year old bike. Question is: what to do about it! The pic attached shows a hole in...

  14. Fuel Pump Clicking Continuously

    Africa Twin
    The last few days I noticed when I start and stop the bike (for example at a shop) the fuel starts clicking to bring fuel back into the lines . This happens sometimes but not every time. But today about 3-4 times the pump has been clicking as soon as you turn on the ignition and keeps on...

  19. Temperature gauge pointer mooves up and down!

    Africa Twin
    Hello from winter Norway! I have a question regarding the Temp gauge! When the needle points above the C or at low operating temp, the needle is "quiet" in other words does not moove like crazy up and down! When the temperator rises and the pointer passes the middle of the gauge, it starts to...
