    I've taken the rear shock out of my 700 Alp and removed the standard spring. I'm sending it to Faulkners for them to make me a stiffer replacement. An off the shelf spring from them isn't an option as the standard one is tapered ( about 3-4mm narrower at the bottom ). Not sure what weight spring...

    Hi! I'm from South Africa. Been riding old bikes for ever, and recently bought a 1992 AT, my "newest" bike to date. Which fuel is preferable for the AT, leaded or unleaded? Our Octane rating is 93 for either leaded or unleaded.

    Please can someone remind me how the cables fit into the pulleys? Just spent a very frustrating 30 mins with them connected but no snap back action at handle bar end. Really grateful as ever for any guidance. Thank you
  5. For Sale / Wanted
    Hi, I have a rear shock spring for sale, it is a K-Tech spring and is rated at 12kg/mm, part number 5963-220-120. I took it from my XR650L but I'm sure it would also fit the XR600 and possibly a Dominator. This maybe useful if you want to upgrade your rear suspension. Make me an offer as it...

  10. Africa Twin
    I have my stand ready to go. Is there any trick or way around removing the entire exhaust system to install? I've had one of my rusty clamps soaking in penetrating oil for two days, but it looks like it isn't going to break free (first one from the head).

  12. Africa Twin
    For an 'old' bike, the AT still gets a decent rating from this months Ride magazine test report. :thumbup: :D I think this may have been the report from the mag looking for a suitable At a whiole back?

    Hi there I am buying tyres I can get an Anakee S (112 mph) for £48.23 or H ( 130 mph) £58.41. I havn't got a true 112 mph out of her, don't think I could ( Heavy load ) , but from a legal perspective I think it depends on the manufactures specs. What is the listed top speed for a XL650 TA?
  15. XR
    Hello all. I'm Paul from the south east corner of England and I'm about to buy a 2001 XR400r next week to replace my ageing KLR600 collection for greenlaning use. As I have a natural avoidance to salads, one of the things I did when setting up a KLR was to change the rear spring for a heavier...
  16. Africa Twin
    I'm looking for some TKCs for the AT, and lists two options for the front with S (112mph) or T (118mph) speed ratings. I've seen people here mention that they have gone for the T rated front, but given that the rear is Q rated (99mph), is there any point? The S rated tyre is...
