  2. RD03 gearing

    Africa Twin
    My current sprocket setup is -1 front and +3 in the rear. I like this, but I'd like to get better mileage on the road and I want an OEM 16T front for reduced wear on the shaft. Thinking of changing my chain and go to just +1 in the rear or should I go with the stock 46 tooth rear sprocket?

  9. Who Knows About the XLR125?

    XL
    I got me one of these: Now I wasnt expecting much but there really isnt much power at all! Bizarrely there is a bit of torque and it will "torque" its way up a reasonably steep hill off-road in 2nd but there just doesnt seem to be any midrange, and you have to rev the nads off it in a...

  15. Fuel filter for 650

    Transalp
    Was thinking of installing an inline paper fuel filter (Mahle KL13) to my 650. Anyone installed such filter? Flow of petrol is reduced?
