  1. Seating options...

    Africa Twin
    Poxy seat on the rd07 is the most uncomfortable thing I've ever had the displeasure of sitting on, soooo what are my options? Wait for one to come up secondhand? Spend a fortune on Corbin or top sellerie? Has anyone used the polish lad on eBay that charges 90 quid? I've already got an...
  2. Got myself one at last!

    A lovely 650 on an 02 plate with all the luggage and a strange oiler (not Scott). Am a little alarmed at the seating position tho. I think i will be forming a squeeky voice and a sorebum in no time! Are there resolutions to this issue?
  3. Fuel overflowing

    Right guys after my first successful post on the forum I am back again in need of help! So I am well versed in carburettors however with all the tubing attached to the Varadero I am a bit bemused.

  4. Are you sitting comfortably?

    Ok guys tiny moan with my xl600v seating position. May just be me but when in the saddle I feel that I have to keep shuffling back up the seat. Also the slight forward sliding puts pressure on my old thumbs. I know I'm a wuss. Now my question is are there any after market seats with slight...

  7. A change is as good as a rest.

    I thought id try something a little different for a change. Over the last few years ive only ridden large trail bikes but having just sold the Tenere i went and bought this.

  9. Seating the carburettors

    Africa Twin
    Is there a knack? :D Just can't get them to pop on. Also, a coolant hose seems to be slightly in the way on the right/offside and I don't know if it's meant to push up against the carbs a bit or not...
