  1. RD03 Exhaust, Repairable?

    Africa Twin
    My exhaust wasn't blowing right so I toke it off to take a look for holes etc, what I found looked to be beyond regular repair. The internal pipe at the start of the muffler has broken free from its self completely. It's hard to describe so I will post a video showing the damage. Externally...

  5. WANTED: Radiator RD07A - RHS

    Africa Twin
    Stopped at the garage to buy some beer and noticed coolant dripping onto the floor. Got home and took bash plate off and have traced the leak to the underside of the radiator. It seems to be bubbling out of the bottom. I will take the rad off and see if it's either corroded through or whether...

  7. Wanted: Parts for RD07a

    Sadly a couple weeks ago, an elderly lady decided to cut me off which left me in the hospital with an open frakture and pretty messed up foot. It also left my Twin with some damage, yet thankfully repairable. Now being on strict bed rest, I am searching for parts to get her back on the road...

  10. Rugged Roads carbon fibre bashplate

    Africa Twin
    Is this stronger than the original aluminium bashplate? If it breaks does it shatter or split? I'd guess it's not repairable? Smashed the hell out of mine at the Kielder K2 and on the TRF Coast to Coast Big Bore run this week...
  11. Hole in my Silencer

    Africa Twin
    Africa Twin XRV650. Going through my new purchase. Discovered a hole in the silencer just under the main bracket. After investigation (poking the rust off) it is now about the diameter of a bic biro pen. The silencer, when shaken sounds like a maracas and occasional debris drops out the baffle...

  13. Blowing Smoke??

    Africa Twin
    Fitted the new Remus Titanium plus a barrow load of other parts & bling, fresh oil & filter, radiator flush and then took my new (to me) AT for re-licensing after buying it as a repairable write-off. Passed no worries. Then went for a quick 300km ride on a mix of suburbia and freeways...

  17. Broken Carburetor.

    Africa Twin
    Hi everybody, I have a 2000 model A/T that I bought recently and started rebuilding. Is there anyone out there that knows where I might find a front cylinder carburetor. Apparently the carb is un repairable and nobody even wants to touch it. The cost of buying a new set of carbs is ludicrous...
  18. Lower fork leg conundrum.

    I am by no means mechanically or technically vocabulorated so the following may or may not make sense but i'll have a damn good go. My Vara has done almost 80k. She's doing well on it though. BUT.... i've broken something and I can't find a second hand replacement and begrudge paying for a new...
  19. Might be selling some bits - valuations please

    What's it worth?
    Wheels - Standard AT hubs (RD04) with a 3.5" rim (Hagon) on the rear hub and a DRZ400 front rim 1.65" at the nose end. Takes a 140/80/17 rear and a 100/90/21 or 90/90/21 front tyre. The narrower front rim makes no difference to be honest. Stainless spokes as well - I have had them for about 5k...
