  4. Varadero
    My varadero has started jumping out of 2nd gear into neutral, does anyone know what this is or is it as i suspect, a worn drum/selector forks? If so does anyone know if you can get to it with engine in the bike, because the honda service manual quotes only 3hrs for the job

    My TA 600 sometimes jumps out of 2nd gear under accelleration. I think the problem is worn gear selector forks ie these (not my pic) has anyone here ever dismantled their transalp gearbox to change these selectors? if so, how easy is it to do this? is it the right hand side of the engine? do...

    Hi All Trying to make my bike as drop proof as possible. I've got a bendy gear selector, hand/lever guards, and will soon buy some stubby indicators. This means that the most vulnerable part is now the rear brake lever, as I've found out numerous times. Any hints for crash-proofing it, or...

  11. Africa Twin
    Does anyone know what the screw size, thread size and so on are for the screw that holds the plastic reserve fuel selector thingy in place? Seems I either forgot to screw it in last time or i didnt do it properly, cause the screw is missing now. Luckily the actual plastic thingy is still there
