  2. Wake up call..............

    Africa Twin
    I thought I would write this while it was fresh in my mind. Just 30 minutes ago a man died while I was holding his hand. A fellow motorcyclist who probably just misjudged his entry speed into the first corner on the town side of Suikerbossie hill. This little misjudgement cost him his life. He...
  3. Neutral light goes on when clutch pulled in!

    Africa Twin
    Anyone ever heard of this bizzare electrical gremlin? Every time I pull in the clutch lever, the neutral light comes on. It also works when the light is in neutral. Nothing else seems affected. It all started after I replaced slow dying fuse on starter relay. But this shouldnt affect neutral...

I had a cunning plan the other day of using one of the existing fairing mounting bolts and fixing the light brackets on...

  8. Heres an odd thing (Fuel Starvation)

    My Trany has always had a problem cruising at high speed, always as though there was fuel starvation, so I decided to strip everything down again. On taking the carbs apart I noticed some funny little filters pushed in the metal pipes for the feed to the float chambers, and when I tried blowing...
  9. Dynojet or not?

    Africa Twin
    I am thinking about spending out on a K & N filter and a Dynojet kit. 2 local bike garages said I shouldnt bother, the reasons being extra fuel use and for the cost no difference in performance. One said what do you expect its only a 750....anyone who says the word ONLY about my bike is asking...
