    Africa Twin
    Hi all, it's been a while, hope you are all well and loving your new / old ATs :D Sold mine, didn't want to but ironically the difference from an older GS funded our ADV to Spain to hunt down some of those Africa Twin film locations from the original marketing videos.

  2. Oil Pump Chain Query

    Transalp
    Anyone got any info or advice on the acceptable or expected oil pump drive chain slack when installed (or length between links if removed) for a 1994 XL600V? Engine casing off as we speak and im mid clutch replacement but when I look at the oil pump chain ,it just looks to me to be very loose...
  3. Insurance Rant

    Chatter
    My multi bike policy is due for renewal and I receive the instruction - it's risen from £269 for 4 Modern Classics to £410. My phone call reveals the cause, my truck driving day job (75k miles/year) has accumulated a few claims and suddenly I'm high risk. I explain that I've completed a few...
  4. My daft movie - CRF1000L

    Africa Twin
    Hi all, long time no speak! Been faffing around over summer on my new AT - Uploaded a silly video of my on my trip to Ireland :D 746 miles in 3 days.

  5. Carol Nash - AVOID!

    Africa Twin
    1 month left on my policy that I had not made a claim on. Sold bike & so informed the company. They offered a £9 refund and a £50 charge for the "Admin"; net result I owe £41 to cancel. If I don't cancel and pay then they will cancel and send me the bill anyway. How can it cost £50 to type into...

  7. Bridgestone BT45's just run in...

    Dominator / FMX
    Just back in from a 4 hour b-road ride on the new BT45's - the bike is transformed! Kicking myself for persevering with the awful Avon Distanzas for so long - the bike is now stable, copes with broken surfaces and has grip at last - a real pleasure to ride now! Can't speak for off-road riding...
  8. Carole Nash insurers = Dick Turpin

    Chatter
    I've just sold my africa twin and rang Carole Nash to cancel my insurance. I have six weeks remaining on the policy that I paid for up front last year. I was informed that there is a 50 pound cancellation charge, I expected the cancellation charge to be more than they owe me, as the telephone...

  10. Wanted: Wanted A T OEM fuel pump

    For Sale / Wanted
    Hello I am after an OEM fuel pump for my RD07a rebuild, the current one looks like an original but the inlet and outlet are opposite to the original, I guess it is a pattern part? It seems to be working (tested on a battery) but may not be long for this world. I am keen to keep the original look...

  13. Bikesure European cover?

    Insurance
    I have been shopping around for a new Multibike policy for my two bikes and have essentially ended with Bikesure and eBike, as bother are happy to insure an import (NX400) Bikesure impress as they can be bothered to respond to enquiries and provide answers, eBike less so, they push use of email...

    Africa Twin
    Hi Guys, You may not be able to tell from this picture alone, but is this an RD04 or RD07? Looking to perhaps buy it but the guy doesn't speak much english and he doesn't understand what I am asking or just doesn't know. It's a long trip for me so would like to know before I get there...

  17. Spare exhibitor pass for BMF Tail End

    Chatter
    I have a spare exhibitor pass for the BMF Tail End and wondered if anyone who was using my the-zebra phone app wanted to come? I'd be looking for someone to watch the stand a bit, give out leaflets and talk to people about the app but there'd be three of us so there'd be plenty of time to see...

  19. Should bike tests be in foreign languages?

    Chatter
    There is a consultation out on the subject. There is pretty much zero risk of fraud for bikes but is a driver who can't speak or read English a risk on the roads? DSA asks if tests should be in languages other than English | the-zebra.com
