  1. Spring for primary drive gear assy

    Africa Twin
    I am looking for a spring for the primary drive gear. It comes as a unit. I don't think you can just buy the spring (unit part#23110mv1000) on its own. I have tried other springs but they just don't fit right and I do not want to experiment inside the engine. Anybody got an old primary gear?
  2. Clutch messing.rd04

    Africa Twin
    While trying to mesh my clutch, with a tentioned primary drive gear assembly, I have come to the conclusion that the springs are tired and need replaced, has any one replaced just the springs ?

  7. Clutch noise

    My first proper post here and it's a bit long I'm afraid, sorry. I'm hoping to upgrade to a Transalp in the near future and I went to take a look at a possible new bike yesterday, a black '2003 650. It's not in the best condition but not too bad either, one thing that concerns me about it is...
