  1. Africa Twin
    Just dropped my AT today at slow rolling speed and thanks to those Rugged Road crash bars any serious damage was prevented. But the right one took a substantial hit and it absorbed all the force which resulted in it being slightly bent inwards. Is it possible to bend it back? I will post some...

  3. Varadero
    Hi, just installed this weekend manual cct on my Dero. The bike feels smoother at idle but rolling it seems a struggle a little or could be just placebo I dont know. Should I turn off 1/4 on the mcct? will be need to put the engine at TDC? cheers

    I was thinking about what I want to do next after my Dommie project is done. I was having a beer and watching the first episode of the new series of the walking dead and noticed that the feller with the crossbow has got himself a new bike. A few minutes on the interweb revealed this. Rolling...

  7. Mechanical Advice
    A quick query for all you mad keen mechanics, I'm about ready to refit the engine into my 1989 transalp after it's refurb. My question is this, is it easier to fit the engine into the frame loose or into a rolling chassis ? I took it out with the frame on its side and lifted the frame off over...
  8. Africa Twin
    Just another day in the life of your average AT...YEP! It's still rolling around the swedish countryside on a mainly day to day basis doing mundane duties but at it's best when turning down unknown and new forest tracks (to me anyways)..that's what I call a fun bike :thumbup:

  16. Transalp
    Hi I have had this for time now but it occurred to me this morning that it may be the brakes dragging. When I start out in the morning the bike does not freewheel very well and there seems to be lots of resistance - especially notice it when changing gear. After a couple of miles all is...
  17. Africa Twin
    Not sure how important this is - but when its up on the centrestand and in neutral, engine running, the rear wheel spins, though very slowly. On the deck it idles fine, no feeling like its trying to pull away. Clutch adjustment is fine. 30K on the clock there should be any problem with th e...
