  1. RD07A MRA windscreens

    Africa Twin
    I seek advice from people with experience with the MRA varioscreen V (new full screen) and the MRA vario touring (clip on top of old screen) part. I suffer from high windnoise on higher speeds. Been looking for reviews and comparisons, but not alot to find. I'm 6 foot 2 inches high. I like the...

  3. I know I'm being lazy, but.....

    Transalp
    can anyone recommend a decent cover for a 600 TA? I did a search on here but nothing came up. By 'decent' I mean something that stays on, packs up small and won't rip after a month...it's mainly for deterring opportunist thieves and similar vermin, rather than withstanding a hurricane. Amazon...
  4. Brake pad reviews

    Transalp
    As with sprocket reviews the common thread here is to buy honda oem parts. However, surely ALL "universal" parts cant be useless otherwise companies would go out of business, no?

  6. Fitting race lines - HEL ONES - how do I back bleed?

    Africa Twin
    Need to fit new Hel lines. Read a few reviews on here where people have had some problems fitting them, so wondered what is the easiest option to fit these? If I reverse bleed do I fill one line up to the reservoir then move on to the other one...then what?

  8. New Africa Twin - 'Users Views'.

    Africa Twin
    Unsure if this subject has been covered in any depth but its almost been a year since the launch of the new @T. So, 'users' will have had enough time to evaluate and assess the new bike's potential. I know there have been so many reviews written on this bike, but what I'm looking for is the...
  9. RD07A weight on rear rack

    Africa Twin
    The manual states max 27kg load weight but only 10kg on the rear rack, understand the recommendation but I'm sure riders exceeded this limit =) The reason I wonder is that I'm interested in the 58l Trekker Outback, the manufacturer blinds the specifications like their football team dives but...
  10. 600 Touring Screens

    Transalp
    Hi, I know this topic has been done to death but i'm after a touring screen for my 600 transalp. I'm around 5'10 with average proportions. I've done a lot of reading and the MRA screens seem to come out well, but i'm not sure if the general reviews i've read are for the touring or touring...

  12. Are the positive new AT reviews making you think?

    Africa Twin
    I was in the "maybe i will look at one in 2-3 years time" camp now I am seriously thinking of getting one, of course I can't justify £10,000 on a bike, but it is tempting anyone else thinking this?

  17. The "What I bought today" thread

    Africa Twin
    Searched but didn't find any thread about this, sure there is the "Product Reviews" but.. well it's easier to tell what you bought than to do a review :blob8: Rules? Not really, if you bought the product today, last week, month or year doesn't really matters. Sure, it's an advantage if you...
