  7. Engine missing a beat at idle?

    Africa Twin
    My 1994 RD07A is intermittently missing a beat at idle? It does need some carb work and is idleing a little high. But every once in a while it seems to have a little hiccup. There is a mechanical “click” sound then a miss in the RPMs. It’s just for an instant, then returns to normal. This...

  11. Dear Pepe. I wish you were here.

    Dominator / FMX
    The last 3 holidays I’ve been on I wished I could have had my trusty nx650 with me as there is no restrictions to riding off road. I’m currently in Sal, Cape Verde and hired a quad bike and had loads of fun but it’s not the same as Pepe. I wish the UK was so accessible to use on a motorcycle, we...

  20. Rear shock RD04: Rebuild or cheap aftermarket?

    Africa Twin
    The rear shock on my RD04 is really harsh at holes and bumps, and it goes thru the whole bike. Its feels like the compression damping is too hard. I have tried to adjust it, but I can’t feel any difference. I have 30 mm free sag, and 70 mm rider sag, so the spring should be ok. (from the...
