  1. PD10 shock in PDO6 frame

    Transalp
    Hi i tried this today, Im not sure if it works on the road but it sits almost the same as my AT did. I fitted the swingarm from my 2000 AT onto my XL600v frame, The AT shock was too long but i tried the shock from a 650 TA and it slid straight in. It does look slightly lower than a pic of an AT...
  2. Bar ends and renthals

    Africa Twin
    My AT has a set of bars on that are too short for the handgrips(a cheap quick replacement by the previous owner). I have the originals but they are slightly bent, so rather than powder coating them, I was lookig at the Renthal Enduro high bars. Question is...will the original bar ends and...
  3. Rugged Road crash bars saved the day

    Africa Twin
    Just dropped my AT today at slow rolling speed and thanks to those Rugged Road crash bars any serious damage was prevented. But the right one took a substantial hit and it absorbed all the force which resulted in it being slightly bent inwards. Is it possible to bend it back? I will post some...
  4. Handlebar height

    Dominator / FMX
    Does anyone have a solution to the handlebar height on the RDo2 ? I find mine very low and difficult to use especially when standing on the pegs, i have loosened them and pushed them up a little which is slightly better but causes the engine to race slightly on full lock so not ideal. I like the...

  6. Fittings for Boano Marathon Tank question

    Africa Twin
    I was lucky enough to source a slightly used Boano tank. The fasteners that were on the tank do not have the smaller "inner" piece that accepts the twist stud. Can anyone tell me if the Boano kit comes with these or does one drill out the riveted pieces on the OEM tank and use? Yjx
  7. 97 XRV750 cam shaft sprocket timing marks slightly off during re-assembly suggestions

    Africa Twin
    Split the cases on 97 XRV750 but now during assembly the rear cylinder cam shaft sprocket timing marks slightly off...could it be off one tooth on lower sprocket, any suggestions? As you can see in attached photo the left side horizontal mark is about a half or quarter tooth below the right...

  9. 20,000 miles done

    Transalp
    Hi All, My TA is just approaching 20,000 miles and the service book is a bit sketchy. Its a 04 plate, 650. I got it with 18,000 miles on it almost a year ago and I'm guessing its time to get the spanners out. The oil is still cleanish, but I think ill change it anyway, and I had a look at the...
  10. On the verge of buying a vigor

    Dominator / FMX
    Went to view a vigor today. Bloke had a couple for sale. Nice guy. And many others in bits in his garage. I particularly liked the one with lower miles. Blue, 1999, every accessory you could need. 6000 miles. We struck a fair deal but im slightly worried about the oil dripping from under the...
  11. MOT

    Transalp
    Dammit! Failed :( Thankfully only failed on a warped rear brake disc rotor, so that's only going to set me back £70. It may be slightly more if the fixing bolts are seized, but I'll see about that next week. Seeing as my Transalp has done 43,000 miles on the one rotor, and I know I drag...

    Hi all, I eventually bought the Batzen Screen Adjuster for the AT CRF1000L :D Seemed a good opportunity for another video...... Have a laugh, might have been slightly hung-over :thumb: Oh, mic went dodgy in places....
  14. Tansalp XL600VV forks

    Transalp
    I have damaged the left hand fork slider (bottom at the thread where the spindle screws in). I can get second hand ones from ebay but they are from the single disk model. Now, the single disk model has the disk on the l/h/s, good, I obviously need the mounts for the calliper, but are they the...
  15. Swap: Swap or buy rd07a AT seat

    XRV Swap Shop
    Just got my first AT and the seat has a gel insert which raises it up to slightly more than what I'm comfortable with at 5'10". Just wondered if anyone wanted to swap for a standard seat or even better a lower seat if there is one. Or I'm willing to buy a lower seat if anyone has one for sale...
  16. For Sale: Transalp 650/700 Folding Gear Lever

    For Sale / Wanted
    Originally intended for a CR85, I re-profiled this slightly to suit the Transalp - the CR85 gearlever doesn't protrude outwards enough on a Transalp to change gear in comfort. £11 posted.
  17. Balancing Carbs

    Africa Twin
    I've Had my Rdo7 coming on 3 years and have never touched it as runs like a swiss watch, The fuelling is nigh on perfect I would say for carbs. But is it possible to get an absolute linear tick over or am I being too anal as it is very slightly uneven?

  19. Ignigtion switch jamming---

    Transalp
    ---on my 2008 Transalp 700. Lately when going to start the Alp I've noticed that sometimes I have to wiggle the key or slightly lift it up and down before it will turn the ignition on. Any idea anyone what's going on and a solution? Nick.
  20. RD03 Backfiring on deceleration

    Africa Twin
    I've recently purchased an rd03 which is in nice condition (67000kms in theory!), but it backfires when off the throttle - not badly, more a tinkling pop pop with the odd loud crack. I suspect this could be down to the Suzuki exhaust can that has been bodged on, but maybe it could be the sign...
