  1. 2nd gear rattle.

    Africa Twin
    Hello! I did a quick search in the forum but didn't find anything similar to my issue. My 2nd gear rattles quite a lot when I open the throttle throughout all the rev range. The rattle occurs only in 2nd gear and only during aceleration. I'm sure it comes from the gearbox and it's not something...

  3. Camshafts on Austrian restricted AT model VS normal.

    Africa Twin
    Hi guys. I recently bought my first AT RD07. It`s an import from Austria, and I`ve learned that those models are restricted. The restriction in the inlet has been replaced with normal full flow inlet rubber manifolds/isulators by PO. But what about the camshafts they put in the Austrian models...

  8. She's alive again.

    Dominator / FMX
    As you know I had some issues with the bike, two new CDI's from ebay and nothing, some coughing and spluttering but the bike wasn't starting reliably and then the carb decided to piss fuel all over the garage floor. Carb was fixed easy enough, broke the choke but had a spare, still with the crap...

    Africa Twin
    Hello guys! I have been reading the forum for a few years since I got my first AT and now decided to make an account to ask you for advice!

  10. XR400 Conks out

    XR
    Hi guys, a quick one. I've been trying to resolve my XRs fueling problem for a while now. It's main issue is that it conks out. If I rev it and let the throttle snap back, it tends to simply die. Whereas if I gently roll off, it stays running. I'm running #168 main and #62 pilot jets, clip...

  13. Indicator relay access

    Transalp
    Hi I've just bought a Transalp 650 and it appears that the indicator relay needs changing. Can anyone tell me how much of the fairing do I need to remove to access it? The indicators are a come on randomly or when I rev the engine up and there is lots of clicking coming from the relay. Any...
  14. 2011 XL700V Transalp and stuttering at low revs

    Transalp
    Hi, I'm the proud owner of a 2011 Honda XL700V Transalp and am still getting used to riding it. One thing that I'm not sure if it's normal or not though is that the bike stutters (like it's about to stall) between 1500 and 2000 revs consistently. This makes commuting in Central London somewhat...

  17. XL125 spark advancer puzzle

    XL
    Recently rebuilt a 1980 CT125, had high rev misfire, ( similar to "4 stroking") appeared to be due to cam shaft journal wear "bouncing" the points so had bearings made and fitted, still had a misfire which stopped when the advancer was locked, Someone previously had welded the original advancer...
  18. Rev counter question

    Transalp
    On the 600 transalp it says on the rev counter X 1000/min - 1 I.e. To the power of minus 1 Why does it say that? Surely it should just say x 1000/min? Ie when the needle is at 4, that means the engine is doing 4000 revs per minute If you raise the revs or the minutes to the power of...
  19. Bit of a puzzle!

    Transalp
    2006 Transalp. I got work but when I tried to start it, going home, it was completely dead. As if the battery wasn't there. Got it started from a battery pack someone had. It ran roughly for a few minutes and the rev counter was working intermittently but after a few minutes it ran fine. As if...
