  2. Spark plugs on 650

    Transalp
    Spark plugs on 650 fire simultaneously? If not, what is the advantage, if there is any, of having 2 spark plugs firing non-simultaneously in each cylinder.

  5. Strange things happening RD03

    Africa Twin
    So my RD03 has always been difficult to start if left for more than about a day. I have to turn it over a lot then when it does start I have to rev it a bit as it fires on one cylinder until it warms up. Once it is warm it runs lovely (if not a little bit high in revs). I have been thinking that...

    Africa Twin
    THe other day whilst going to my workshop, on the bike, she started to coff and splutter a bit, so noticing my trip counter was on 157 miles i thought I had better switch over to reserve.

    Africa Twin
    I'm after some advice as a relative bike newbie. I've posted previously about a persistent misfire between 3-4000 RPM - the bike isn't at all happy riding at below 3000 (chugs along as if in too high a gear). I took the bike apart last night to check the condition of the spark plugs after...

  12. Spark Plug Installation/Removal Tips

    Transalp
    Anyone have any tips on changing the spark plugs in a 650? I had a quick looksie and two seem gettable with the other two being a bit more tricky. Haynes would have me believe fairings need to be removed but they say the same when changing the coolant whereas only a small inner piece on the...

    Chatter
    After a few of you were crash-test dummies for my early phone app. I have made a lot of modifications and I think it is well worth having a go using it now. There were some gremlins with the download speed of the Android version (sorry to Ian Porter, who suffered the most) but I think that has...
