  1. Africa Twin Technical Specs
    Does anyone have the torque settings for the bottom linkage bolts, below rear shocker, for the above, please. All I can find in my workshop manual is ' tighten the bolts securely '. ??

    Anyone here either changed the spring in the standard shocker, or changed it completely ?? I've added preload to my standard shock already which has helped, but it's still a bit lacking when loaded up with luggage. I'm reluctant to spend loads on an aftermarket shock unless I knew it was going...

    G'day All, It's nice to see that I'm not the only person in the world with a soft spot for an old XR600. I thought I was cured, having given away enduro's in the late 80's and the old 600 although never used for serious enduro's had thought it too could see dignified retirement with it's...

    Whilst greasing up the rear suspension bearings, I thought I’d have a go at knocking up a little Cr#p deflector for the rear shock absorber. Using the little rubber flappy thing that hangs over the rear tank mounting mountings! as my starting point, I got a suitable bit of plastic sheet, 3...
