  3. Fuel exhaust -Africa Twin

    Africa Twin
    I see from FaceAche that Fuel Exhausts have (at last) produced an exhaust for the (real ;)) 2003 Africa Twin. Looks and sounds good. Fuel used to offer a forum discount .. i don't know if it's still given, though. (No harm in asking, if you're looking for an exhaust - the stuff's good...
  4. RD04 Needle jet holder. Which one is with 10 holes?

    Africa Twin
    Hi I have a XRV RD04 1991. Reading all service manuals and visiting all websites in the world, don't clarify which needle jet holder goes where. One have 6 holes - one have 10 holes. My logic tells me, that the one with 10 holes is in carburettor 1, since its jetted a little larger than...

  6. You think the CRF1000 is a REAL Africa Twin.

    Africa Twin
    I don't! This is a Q? I have in my mind since the CRF1000 first came out. It's not that it's not a good bike on its own, it's just that it's a CRF with some Africa Twin stickers/livery. :rolleyes: Cheers.

    Saw this on the real Top Gear (now called GrandTour). It was related to cars, but it does bikes too :-)✓&q=honda+xrv750

  9. VFR750FK now a classic

    Other Honda
    An early VFR750 was advertised locally so went to have a look and brought it. These early models can now be used on VMCC runs (over 25 years old) and insurance is cheap. I have owned a VFR400 and a VF500 in the past so an opportunity to try the real thing. It came with full touring equipment of...
  10. Is this for real?

    just spotted this Yamaha MWT-9 to go on sale is it April 1st, or is it real ?
  11. Cold Cranking Amperes

    Africa Twin
    I'm not sure how much difference a higher CCA makes to starting an AT, I've rinsed two Motobatts's in two years but then I've been refurbing and swapping out old for new parts and connectors along the way so I might have re-fried my second Motobatt by running it for a couple of months with a...
  12. Lonely Hearts - Blackheath area

    Dominator / FMX
    Sometimes on the way to work I see another Dominator. I think that's pretty rare as its the only one I have ever seen in existence in real life as they say. Any way its a red F reg one, I'm the dude on the P reg one, black white and red. Not that you will have ever seen the back of my bike as...

  14. RD03 Rear Wheel Needed

    Africa Twin
    Hi, I'm on the look out for a real wheel as my original one is pretty rotten and spokes are about to break through :( Thought i'd ask here if anyone has or could recommend somewhere as I'm not having much luck. I have the original RD03 with HRC colouring so its a Gold Rim I'm after. Any...
  15. Bridgestone BT45's just run in...

    Dominator / FMX
    Just back in from a 4 hour b-road ride on the new BT45's - the bike is transformed! Kicking myself for persevering with the awful Avon Distanzas for so long - the bike is now stable, copes with broken surfaces and has grip at last - a real pleasure to ride now! Can't speak for off-road riding...
  16. HRC parts for RD07A - Possible? Sticker - The real deal

    Africa Twin
    I think stickers can be nice but only if they are credible. For example I´m thinking of Rugged Roads, Michelin, Motul and HRC but the latter is not true and it's as awesome as having a t-shirt that tells you that I have a thousand money in my back pocket ;) What parts does not feel as...
  17. '89 Dominator sudden loss of compression.

    Dominator / FMX
    Hello everyone. First time posting on this forum. Have been driving Dominator for two years now and a week ago it just died. Bike just stopped while I was driving. When I tried to turn a starter, it seemed that engine had low compression. Friend recommended to take off valve cover and check cam...
  18. Topbox

    This is probably idiotic....but the alp seems much more responsive...more agile without a topbox on the this me imagining things or is there a real reason for this...I would imagine the few kg of an empty topbox should not be felt especially since I have toured with full luggage...
