  12. radiator question

    Transalp
    My 700 has always run a bit hot. I am thinking about swapping those 2 tiny radiators for a single large one. My question is would it be a simple swap or is there anything there to stop me doing it, some technical reason? I guess radiators are pretty simple but would like to hear from someone who...

  14. Transalp 700. What is this pin for?

    Transalp
    Ever since Ive had the Transalp the seat seems to have been sitting a little high. Ive checked underneath a couple of times and everything seemed normal. Anyway today I had a closer inspection and noticed this pin seemingly not doing anything behind the bolt that holds down the fuel tank. It...

  18. SLR CDI into an FX650

    Dominator / FMX
    Is there any reason a CDI from and SLR wouldn't run in an FX650? You'd need to chop the FX CDI plug from the loom and wire in the SLR CDI plug. Then the ignition rotor would need to be changed (the FX on has more pips on it). I'm sure the TPS is the same on both bikes. The only casualty I think...
  19. Rd03 fuel pump relay bypass...

    Africa Twin
    My fuel pump doesn't work when on the bike & the engine is turning over, but once removed works fine when connected to 12v so I suspect the relay - a relay bypass seems a good option, I like to hear the pump working when the ignition is turned on in any case, can anyone think of a reason NOT to?
  20. 1988 NXR livery

    Africa Twin
    1988 Terruzi / Orioli NXR livery I am a fan of the 1988 #83 and 84 Oriolli / Terruzi Italian NXR factory team. One of the reason is that the bike's livery is almost the same as the "civilian" RD03. I don't know the history that prompted such similarity, but it pleases me as I also have an...
