    Africa Twin
    Hi Guys (and Gals) Just spent the day playing with the fuel system on my 99AT. I have fitted the new Facet pump I have had on the shelf for ages and stripped down the carbs looking for a niggly fault that has been bugging me. Basically it starts runs and accelerates fine but out on the open...
  6. Wrong Shock from Wemoto - Hagon or Rebuild?

    Africa Twin
    Quick version without the waffle: If you have fitted a Hagon shock to an RD04, what do you think of the performance? Is it okay offroad (I've heard stories about failures)? Should I just get an original shock rebuilt and reconditioned and, if so, where? Maxton? ABE? Long version with all...

    New boy in town - swapped my BMW K100 (plus a bit of cash) for a 94 Dommie (gay Turquoise, but I'm sure of my sexuality so I don't care).
