  5. And now the clutch has gone?

    Dominator / FMX
    Hi guys, me again. Well my bike is 20 this year! On the way home it became a bit more difficult to change gear when at a standstill. I also started to notice the clutch lever seemed to be not fully returning after I pulled it in. By the time I got home, the clutch lever would hardly return...
  6. Centre Stand

    Africa Twin
    I've riden lots of bikes in the past & most have had centre stands, but the one on my RD07A has beaten me! My last bike was a Vstrom & that seemed to have a short piece sticking out at the bottom... apply weight & up it went. But on the AT there is no bit sticking out & no amount of heaving...

    Africa Twin
