  1. Heavy clutch on Transalp 650

    Transalp
    Afternoon. My first post here. Just acquired a scruffy 2002 Transalp 650. However, all seems reasonably sound with history etc. However, clutch seems very heavy, even with new cable. Before I dismantle, any thoughts please? Perhaps just bunged up with crud from the past 36,000 miles?
  2. Engine missing a beat at idle?

    Africa Twin
    My 1994 RD07A is intermittently missing a beat at idle? It does need some carb work and is idleing a little high. But every once in a while it seems to have a little hiccup. There is a mechanical “click” sound then a miss in the RPMs. It’s just for an instant, then returns to normal. This...
  3. RD04 Scratching noise when pulling clutch

    Africa Twin
    Hi :) I have an RD04 from 1990 with 67000kms on the clock. The last couple of days I have started to notice a scratching sound from the engine when I pull the clutch and let I roll to a traffic light or something. Everything sounds perfect in neutral and when driving that's why I am worried...

  6. Stripping..how far should I go!

    Africa Twin
    Hi, My 2001 AT has 18,000 miles on it. It runs poorly and stumbles and vibrates a lot. Over the winter I think a carb strip and rebuild is in order. Any thought as to have far should I go? Remove carb?. Strip? Fit new jets, gaskets, etc? Ultrasconic cleaning? Replace diaphragms (if fitted)...

  12. Laser exhaust 1995 at 750, loud

    Africa Twin
    I am lucky enough to have both the original exhaust and a laser exhaust on my 1995 rd07. They both came with the bike. I like both, even though I prefer the laser one. But it is loud. Very loud. I suspect that it has been modified at some point. From YouTube I see that there is a piece inside...

  14. re-jetting on the bike.

    Dominator / FMX
    Quick question. Has anyone ever re-jetted their bike while the carb is still on the bike? I've got a adjustable Super trap exhaust on my Dommie and I know I can tune to match the carb with that, but I've found a setting that I love the sound of. Not too loud but enough of barrrrrp. So I...
  15. Decat question.

    Transalp
    Hello peeps, I've just fitted an o2 sensor eliminator, and I have to say the bike really has responded well to it, the fuelling is unbelievably smooth. I was also after a louder soundtrack ( not offensive, just nice & deep ), and was going to fit a decat pipe, leaving the standard silencer. I...
