    Hello guys, I have some evil thoughts about cutting in half the rebound spring or even more - ordering custom ones to be made if all is OK with the shorter length. I am talking about part number 10 here Now this is because I have good sag set up now, but when I put fork emulators they will...

  3. Transalp
    Ok I've found a frame with v5 and some other parts. It's been in a shed for some years in a dismantled state. According to the owner it was a one owner grey import which is verified by the v5. It says first registered to an independent importer. It's an Italian factory model but can someone...

  5. Transalp
    I had a rare spare few minutes this week so carried out a few checks and maintenance on the bikes. Now, the new to me (well 11 months) Transalp is a 2001 on 52 reg and only just turned 14k all seems in good order with no horrors lurking. I popped the sprocket cover off for a look-see, well...
  6. Bikes For Sale / Wanted
    Hi all. Anyone needs a touring screen to muck about / fix buffeting / experiment to find a good way to mount accessories? I got a screen to play with to get the airflow right, but it is NOT for an RD07A. [RD07, I think] So no use to me... I believe that it is one of these: Powerbronze...

  9. Transalp
    How easy is it to take the front forks off to replace the gaiters- mine are in a sorry state. It's not so much the taking off as putting back correctly so as not to muff up the handling?
  10. Dominator / FMX
    Just bought an RD08, really nice to ride and goes well. 99% of it is in good order, however the exhausts (pipe to muffler) are shot. my first peak under the side panels last night revealed a very sorry state of affairs (much disappointment). Been looking around and I cannot decide on a course...
  11. Africa Twin
    I recently bought a set of secondhand GIVI Outback pannier frames that were in a poor state due to off-road use. So I stripped the powdercoating and got them re-coated in a bright silver (work done by Micro Fusion in Bedford) The alloy catches at the top were restored with alloy wheel paint and...

    Hello All, I have recently come into ownership of a 1996 Africa Twin. Last run in 2007, it has sat garaged up ever since. Complete non-runner in need of a complete overhaul, although it is complete as the day it was last ridden. 42k miles. Just wondering on a rough idea of value in its current...

  17. Travel
    I'm off to France and Spain later in the year and I intend to carry a spare fuel can (Fuel Friend 2l) with me for just in case. Looking at some of the ferry websites they seem to state that petrol cans either empty or full are not allowed. I'm sure that a lot on here have gone abroad with spare...
  18. Africa Twin
    I was wondering if the seats are interchangeable between an 1989 xrv650 and the 89/90 US. transalp? Been looking for another seat and got a lead on one the owner said would fit the AT. My bikes are in another state so I can't compare them but he has a corbin that was on his 89 Alp. Thanks
