    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...

    Set to with the debaffle today. Cut the end off the two baffles so I could get 38mm hole saw in. Cut the baffle out and then welded a 42mm piece of pipe onto the hole so it looks a bit tidier. Gave it all a blast with some black vht paint and she sounds like a good un. Just got to swap the main...

    I see from FaceAche that Fuel Exhausts have (at last) produced an exhaust for the (real ;)) 2003 Africa Twin. Looks and sounds good. Fuel used to offer a forum discount .. i don't know if it's still given, though. (No harm in asking, if you're looking for an exhaust - the stuff's good...

    Hello AT Fans! Can you identify this aftermarket exhaust on my XRV750 RD04? It was installed on an AT I purchased and I am unable to locate any stamps or reference to an aftermarket manufacture. It sounds really nice on the V-twin. Any thoughts or guess? Thanks in advance!

    Hi, I'm hoping someone can help me identify a noise on my 1997 AT? It's best described as a whirring that is only audible when applying throttle and moving. You notice it from around 30mph and it sounds like it's from the chain/sprocket area? It goes off immediately on overrun but returns as...

    I was just doing a spot of maintainance on the TA and noticed the front brake light switch is knackered. Switch sounds like it's activating but doesn't close the circuit. If I disconnect the switch and manually make the connection the light comes on so the wiring seems to be fine. Is the switch...
