  1. Clutch release bearing rattle

    Africa Twin
    Hi everyone, I've recently discovered a rattle from the clutch cover on my 93 rd07. It happens when the clutch is pulled in. I'm thinking that it's the release bearing, wondering if anyone had any other ideas? Thanks Stewart Sent from my SM-G960F using Tapatalk
  2. 2nd gear rattle.

    Africa Twin
    Hello! I did a quick search in the forum but didn't find anything similar to my issue. My 2nd gear rattles quite a lot when I open the throttle throughout all the rev range. The rattle occurs only in 2nd gear and only during aceleration. I'm sure it comes from the gearbox and it's not something...

  5. Replacement engine Transalp '87, which fits?

    Transalp
    I bought a '87 Transalp and is possibly needs another engine (front cilinder has 0 compression and is 'rattling'). I'm gonna pull the engine out anyway to check out the condition, but I'm not too positive. This Transalp has the black engine, do the newer gray engines also fit?

  15. Rattle from tank

    Transalp
    Just noticed a rattle from the inside of the tank on my 700 today. Sounds like it could be part of the fuel level indicator or something. Almost like the float is loose (if it has one). Sound familiar?

  20. facet pump rattling

    Africa Twin
    Hey guys, Just got the facet installed, it is the one sold by rugged roads. The problem is that when the tank nears empty, it starts to rattle. I know that when you fill the tank it goes away, but what happens if you cant fill the tank immediatelly and you have to ride 40-50 miles before a gas...
