  1. Africa Twin
    I'm keen to change the rather inadequate standard bash plate for something bigger that provides far more protection to the front of the engine and frame etc. similar to what came as standard on the xrv. In my opinion this is one of the very few design/equipment failings on the new bikes (heated...

Bikes I have been looking at are, vstrom, versys, nc700x, transalp and tenere. I 've owned a single before( f650) and found...
  4. For Sale / Wanted
    Does anyone have a second hand set that they would like to part with for reasonable money? A brand new set are a wee bit on the pricey side). They don't have to be perfect, just solid, straight and not eaten away like so many. This is for an RD07a (thanks Lee for prompting me on model). Thanks...

    Hi again I recently fitted a high level mudguard to my Dommie. It looks great, in doing so however I removed the brace that runs under the old road mudguard. I have noticed that when I brake the handlebars twist. I understand about turning moments and forces generated by single sided disc...

  7. Varadero
    I'm going to be doing the Spanish HISS twice this year, the May trip to Aragon is not going to be as demanding off road as Catalonia in September, so I am pondering taking the Vara as there will be a lot of road work going out from St Malo. Any thoughts on the Mitas E-07 F&R on the Vara? I have...

  9. Africa Twin
    With the rebuild coming to an end thoughts turned to what extra electrical gizmos might be needed/ wanted in the near/distant future. I can see the following being added at some point. Ctek charging socket, LED voltage monitor, permanent live 12v socket and or switched live 12v socket, heated...

    Hi all.. I've got a full set of Givi Monokey luggage. I'd love to 'upgrade' to the GIVI Trekker Outback range. I'm told that the top box is the same fitting as my current top box, but the panniers are not. fine, I'll just sell my existing bracket when I sell my boxes right..? well, Nope...

    Hi all As above basically! I'm trying to locate some pannier frames for my Africa Twin RD04 that will take Givi e21 panniers, I bought the panniers ages ago thinking that it would be easy to get some cheap frames, sadly not the case, so I have nothing to attach them to:( Anyone got some...

    Hi all, A fresh XRR noob off the production line has arrived with more questions than sense :rolleyes: Just looking for some advise on electrical upgrades. I always wanted on XR650R since when I first saw one owning a KX500 in the Baja.... Anyhow after 14 odd years of no biking I finally got...
  13. Africa Twin
    Getting ready for rebuilding my wheels and have been following recent posts re central wheels closely. I am going to have a go myself or use a local wheel builder but am having trouble deciding on which rims to go for I would value any opinions. I will need rims and spoke sets for both front...
  14. Transalp
    Hi guys, has any one got any suggestions for handguards for the 650? I was looking at BarkBusters but they're pricey albeit very good. There's got to be a cheaper enclosed guard, ideally nice and wide to deflect the wind but with a reinforcement not just plastic. Will any other brands fit the...
  15. Accessories
    Seen one of these on fleabay. Look really comfy but as we all know looks can be deceiving. Bit pricey though at £265ish. Just like to know if any one has tried them on any of their bikes.
  16. Dominator / FMX
    i'm about to start my 91 Dominator project.. but it seems that getting the original plastic parts for the Dommie is quite impossible/pricey if i want to restore it to its original condition. is there any mods using other maker parts like yamaha,suzuki for the Dommie? if yes, i would like to try...
