  3. Blown bulb

    Dominator / FMX
    My dommie’s tail light failed on the way home last night. The first clue was when a trucker flashed his lights at me after I passed him on the M25. A couple of others flashed but it’s remarkable how many of my fellow motorists didn’t! Also remarkable what a faff it is to get to the bulb. Both...

  9. Starter relay problem.

    Transalp
    The ‘93 600 TA I just bought has had a bit of a meltdown in the relay/regulator area, but been repaired and has run okay for quite a while. Apparently. When I bought it I pulled the panels, tank and seat off just to have a general inspection. I pulled a few wires out, checked connections and...

  13. RD07 Standard seat clean

    Africa Twin
    Bit of a strange ask but here goes. Anyone any ideas on how to clean off oil (might be ACF50) that I spilt on the standard seat? Got a couple of marks. Tried hot soapy water.

  20. Any experiences with the YSS Rear shock on XL650 Transalp ?

    Transalp
    I'm thinking of buying a YSS to replace the very tired original shock. I bought one for my 750AT and it jacked the rear up by 3". Nice shock but the seat is high now. Is the Transalp YSS the same deal ?
