  1. Wanted: 1996 blue/Navy transalp fairings

    For Sale / Wanted
    Hi, This is a long shot but I figured I would give it a shot. I have a 1996 transalp in the blue/navy colour combo. I have badly damaged my front cowl and offside front side panel. Would anyone happen to have any fairings in this colour combo that they can sell? If not I will have to suck...
  2. New carbs - Options

    Dominator / FMX
    Hi All, I've tried searching but haven't managed to find a definitive answer. Is there a direct replacement carb that would fit a 1999 nx650? I was going to strip and rebuild mine as it's got the usual tickover issue but if there is a better replacement that could be used I may well just go...

  4. The Motorcyclist’s Guide to Scotland

    Travel
    There’s a new book that’ll be of interest to anyone heading north of the border. It does seem to be very comprehensive, well written and informative. There’s loads of background information, not just route directions. JG even suggests appropriate reading material and soundtracks to accompany...

    Africa Twin Technical Specs
    Hi all, My Rear wheel of my 88 RD03 has serious rim rot and the bike won't get through an MOT. I've been trying to source a new rear wheel but had no luck. I have found a rear wheel from a 1998 model and wondering if it would fit? Thought I'd ask hear for advice. My other route is to get a...
  8. Scrambler Build

    Dominator / FMX
    So here's my build to throw into the pot. Are there any original dominators left?! :p Wanted to go down the scrambler route rather than the street tracker look, as wanted it to be able to cope with some off roading. Have therefore made up a tray in the subframe which will house most of the...

    Clothing
    I'm looking for any personal recommendations on heated jacket liners for winter commuting. I've looked at the Keis X25, the Gerbing 12V jacket liner, and the EXO2 StormRider. Are there any others I should consider? Would there be a big difference in warming ability between sleeved and...
  15. poor starting on cold damp mornings

    Transalp
    XL700VA9 so not old but starts and stalls on cold & damp mornings unless revved a few times. Once running its fine and the batteries good and will keep turning it over until it starts. It's supposed to have been serviced but I'm suspecting plugs and/or air filter are the cause, what plugs do...
  16. North Wales --> France & Spain --> North Wales

    Transalp
    Well I've decided that the easiest way to do my recent tour trip write up is going to be in the form of a blog. That way it's going to be more easily readable than by inserting a few random images on here. So, to date I've managed to write up the first half of the journey covering North Wales...

  20. Rode off road!

    Dominator / FMX
    Having recently replaced the Bridgy BT45 tyres on my Dommie with a more dirt-friendly Conti Escape, I took a detour off road today. Nothing strenuous, I don't have the skills for it, just some marked Byways around Hertfordshire. Good fun, and a useful escape route if I'm ever a fugitive on the...
