  1. 600 Sidestand

    Transalp
    Quick question,,,,,,,,,,, my 600 TA will roll forwards and allow the sidestand to fold up on the slightest of downhill slopes, should the stand lock in place somehow? or do I just have to remember to park her in gear?
  2. sidestand foot

    Africa Twin

    Hi all, Engine is coming back together, but wasn't sure how to apply sealant to the base gasket. Do I apply any? Both sides? One side? Which side? They are a metal pressed base gasket. Thanks, James

    My rear wheel bearing (not sure if both sides or just one) has failed silently and completely. I am waiting for NAF outside Luleaa. Anyone know a workshop in Luleaa that can fix this quickly?
  8. Chain slack

    Transalp
    Owner's manual: "Drive chain slack should be adjusted to allow the following vertical movement by hand: 35 - 45 mm. This movement must be checked with bike on sidestand?
  9. New AT, second dumb question.

    Africa Twin
    Chain tension, I recall reading somewhere that it should be set 7cm below the swing arm on the sidestand. Is this about right? Oil level, I presume check this with the bike standing upright.

  15. Trialer expense

    Bodgers Corner
    I have been wanting a trailer to transport some bikes to events, prices are crazy for what they are. Went to local steel merchants and got quoted for 2" x 2" & 4" x 2" box sections it was going to cost £200 for steel alone not including suspension unit and tow hitches light etc. But would still...
  16. Fitting a centrestand

    Transalp
    this is just for info really - yesterday I fitted a centrestand to my Transalp. The process was very straightforwards - except for fitting the spring. After some trial :confused: and error :blob6:the eventual method adopted was as follows: 1. attach the spring to a trolley-jack securely by...
  17. ABS off road

    Mechanical Advice
    There seems to be a bit of a consensus that ABS is a "bad thing" when riding off-road but I have to admit can't really understand why. Now I know there may be times when you may wish to lock up the back wheel if going down hill covered in loose stuff and build up a wedge of muck in-front of it...

  20. A Yank builds a chain oiler

    Bodgers Corner
    I finished my chainoiler bodge. I put 200 miles on it today and it works surprisingly well. What it ISN'T is pretty. My bike is a 1990 Transalp with many Africa Twin bits. It's like this because the ATs were never imported to cruiser-happy America and poor sods like us have to build our own...
