    I have an Africa Twin1993 bought a couple of years ago. The choke cable is hanging free and is not connected to the carburetors. Can someone tell/show me where the choke cable leads connect in the carburetor?

I never had this before i came off and...

    Has anyone got any pics of their pipework coming from the HCR behind the reg. plate. I`m having trouble trying to figure out how to keep it nice and tidy :confused: . Mainly interested in the part from the HCR to the side panel.

    Sorry to be a pain in the botox. But can someone describe or post pics of the routing of the throttle, clutch and de-comp cables on my 250 ('97). I've had mine off for so long that my routing seems wrong and I didn't take any specific photos of the relevant bits. My throttle cables move about a...

    Could any RD07/A owners be kind enough to post some pics/video or, if you're feeling articulate, descriptions of the routes for the clutch and throttle cables please?! My pics don't quite get the detail and the cable routing in the Honda workshop manual is illegible...

    Does your XR 250 have the throttle cable on the right or the left of the frame main spine? It's on the right on my bike and I'm struggling to get a smooth cable action.

    Hi all, How have you routed a braided front brake pipe on an RD03 without it catching on anything under fork compression or on full lock ??. I've ordered a 1000mm line as the 1050 one is a bit long but as you know the braided lines are considerably thinner than the original rubber ones so how...

    Well after nearly 2 month of ownership of my TA, I am nearing the point of finally getting to use it.:toothy8: With having to do all the work outside, (no garage or big enough shed available), I've had to repair and paint every panel, done a service on it and a couple of mods. Just need a...

    Was wondering if someone could put up a picture of their speedo cable from the drive up the fork leg and past the mud guard, the one on my bike just doesn't look right there's a hose clip around the fork leg to keep it from rubbing on the brake disc, it broke after a show off wheelie and i don't...

    Has anybody got pics or diagrams of the cable and wiring routing for an early alp (1988) or does anyone know where I might find it? Thanks
