  6. Moral Dilemma

    Chatter
    As I like the GSA so much and I can't see any reason to change it I'm thinking about dropping it out of the dealer network next year and save a few pennies by taking on the servicing myself. Now to read any fault codes, run tests on sensors and perform such tasks as parking the stepper motors...

  10. XL650 V4 - rough running on neutral throttle

    Transalp
    Hi All My 2004 650 TA suddenly developed "character" on Friday. It's fine at tickover or on the power, but on a neutral throttle at normal road speeds I can feel it surging and fading. It's not enough to change the sound of the engine, but I can really feel bike struggling. It's most apparent...
  11. Africa twin run around

    Africa Twin
    Help !! I´ve been following many of the threads on similar problems and hoped that I had already sorted out my 1989 africa twin 650 problems. But no. One cylinder cuts out with the rpm counter then two minutes later the bike grinds to a halt. A few minutes later it re starts on a single cylinder...

  14. Fuel indicator lights RD04 and Ideal jetting

    Africa Twin
    Hi there. I am just too lazy to read my workshop manual. Is there any one that can shortly tell me how to test the sensors in the tank without exploding it. Both my red and yellow lights switch on with the ignition, so I believe there is no problem there but neither of them light up when I run...

    Well, as the RD04's long gone now (thankfully still belonging to a forum member), I don't think I'll be needing this... I kept it from the RD04 I broke for spares as a spare for mine. The plan was to spray up the old bodywork and this tank in camo and use off-road but, like most things, I...

    I am considering a XL700 for an extended tour and would like to know how complex it is. Does it have any onboard Diagnostics ?

  18. Fuel level sensor spade connectors - which way?

    Africa Twin
    I had the tank off recently (RD04) and thought while I did it I'd try to get to the bottom of the fuel level senders not working. I seem to have tracked it down to the senders themselves being at fault by touching the two spade connectors together (this results in the fuel light coming on...

  20. Another Vapor question

    Mechanical Advice
    Yup I'm putting a Vapor on my XT600. I've seen Snapper's excellent pics, but it looks like he has large hoses on his AT with which to attach the coolant temperature sensors. Has anyone here put the sensor into an XT600 which is mostly pissy thin hoses ? I can probably bodge it eventually, but...
