  1. Africa Twin
    Hi All Has anybody got a heat shield for AT RD 07, the lower one that fits between the down pipes and the tail pipe, mines a bit battered and not happy with it, paint finish not an issue but must be quite straight and undamaged. Thanks Luke

    Hi , I'm looking for a straight front sub-frame as mine got bent in a fall. It's like the one in the picture. Would you have one in straight condition? If so, please PM me. Cheers Pete
  3. Transalp
    Hi, Would anyone (preferably in the UK) have a straight headlamp/fairing sub frame they may be interested in selling? (Picture attached.) Don't mind if it's rusty and in need of painting as long as it's not bent. If so, please send me a message with how much you'd like for it posted to Surrey...

    OK, so I got home the other day, put bike away as normal, no problems, but next day...nothing. No lights, nada, dead. Getting in there with my multimeter, I diagnosed a knackered ignition barrel, swapped it for a new one from David Silver and the bike started first time, roared into life. Great...

    Hi Chaps, XL700VA, 2008 with 20K miles on the clock. Riding along a few weeks a go, on full throttle the engine cuts. Roll the throttle back off and it picks up again. Every time I open the throttle the engine dies, but picks up again when I roll it off. Bike is un rideable. No MIL . Turn it...

  8. Transalp
    Hi all I've been riding my trusty Transalp daily now for 12 months. It was time for a new Chain and Sprocket set. I removed everything that was required and gave it all a good clean. Fitted both Sprockets then re-assembled with the new chain. Had some problems with riveting the master link as...

  12. Africa Twin
    Hello, I am an Africa Twin rider from Denmark, that are building a bit on my RD04. The ride ready weight with full tank is 210 kg (I am still trying to get the weight down to 200kg). I really like the bike, except for the suspension. It feels way too hard/harsh on fast bumps and holes...

    Hi All, Using the 17T front sprocket from Honda Shadow seems to be quiet popular here. Has anyone noticed too short life of the chain, while using the 17T sprocket? My current JT chain with OEM Shadow sprocket is dead after 10k km. I do ride most of the time on gravel, but that seems too...

    Hi i tried this today, Im not sure if it works on the road but it sits almost the same as my AT did. I fitted the swingarm from my 2000 AT onto my XL600v frame, The AT shock was too long but i tried the shock from a 650 TA and it slid straight in. It does look slightly lower than a pic of an AT...

    I promised myself I'd not go for an aftermarket pipe........but I spotted a Pro duro on Ebay recently, that was in good nick, local and the Gent selling it seemed genuine, so I bought it. I think it's actually for a Tenere, but I factored making up a new link pipe in with my offer. As far as I...

    Two years ago I had to remove my original exhaust from my RD03 because it was so badly corroded internally, I fitted a GPR Exhaust temporally until I could get my original restored. In Rostov, Russia I met a custom bike & exhaust builder called Pasha, i sent the exhaust to him and 2 months...

    Hi Folks I know there's a post on this from quite a few years back- but just wanted to see if other people have had the same problem as me and what solutions worked for them. I'm trying to fit the RR crash bars to my RD04 - got all the brackets fitted - but when it comes to attaching the bars...
