  10. Remus Grand Prix Race Exhaust

    Product Reviews
    I bought my Aluminium Remus in 2003 as I wanted a more fruity sound, and boy do you get that with this fellow. It's loud, much louder than stock, and as it's the race version is louder than normal Remus. I had a little bit of trouble fitting it as it was tight and I had to jiggle things a bit...
  11. GRRRRRR! Blood Honda

    Africa Twin
    Look at this: Parts 28 and 31 look the same at the top and bottom of the tubes (12 and 13). But actually the ends that fit on the carbs are narrower and these clips will not clamp them tight. Perhaps modern versions of parts 12 and 13 were made equal thickness but they are no longer available...
  12. Nuts

    Africa Twin
    Had a completely unsuccessful attempt at changing the shock on project Zebra. Undid the linkage rods to get access to the bottom bolt on the shock but could not shift it. Broke one socket and then burred the nut with a proper spanner. So, drilled it out from the other side, meaning that in...

  14. Arrow exhaust install (pics).....

    Transalp
    Here are the pics (fingers crossed). The old tired oe exhaust Holed in the clamp area - possibly blocked drain hole? The old one literally fell off due to the clamp being completely rusted through! It was an absolute doddle to fit, and very well made. The rubber on the mounting strap...
  15. The XRV Helpdesk

    Chatter
    The Haines Manual doesn't seem to cover head races so I had to call the XRV Helpdesk a few times this weekend - otherwise known as Chad. First thing he said made no sense. It was something about nuts, yolks and forks. I thought, I know how to make an omelette, it's these flippin' head races I...

    Chatter
    Guys is there anyone out there that uses AOL that can help me? I quite often get people that don't know how AOL deals with Spam and I want to help them some more by working on a tutorial or process that shows them where to look for forum emails if they are treated as spam.

    Varadero
    After an afternon spent fiddling with the bike and my Starcom and stuff, I decided to take the plunge and fit my Spotlights that have been gathering dust for 6 months or so!

    Mechanical Advice
    Hi all, So I've been thinking of replacing my exhaust (stock RD07) with a Remus Revolution, and I was wondering if anyone who has one can answer some of my questions... So what do they sound like? I've heard they have a deep rumble, but how loud is it? I understand the stock exhaust is very...
  20. Hello

    Africa Twin
    I've just signed up and figured I ought to introduce myself and explain how ATs came into my life. As a life-long road (and road racing) oriented rider they didn't appear on my personal radar until about three years ago when a friend, who had never owned one, told me he wanted to get a...
