  1. Africa Twin
    Yesterday I started on the brake re-build for my RD03. This bike had been sitting for a few years with the brake systems drained and partially disassembled. Problem: How to remove the old crusty brake pistons from the caliper while not destroying them in case they can be cleaned up and...
  2. Africa Twin
    Hello Everyone, I came out to find what appears to be a clear film separating from the tank with water or air trapped underneath, after a night of heavy downpour. The safety stickers appear to be on the outside which suggests that this clear coating is original. Has anyone experienced anything...

    Finally my new tyres are on order. I had expected them to be delivered by now but due to the extra unexpected seasonal demand I have to wait two weeks almost instead of 4-5 days. Hopefully I manage to stay on the existing ones before the new set arrive. I'm really interested to see if there is...
