  1. extra long throttle cable

    Africa Twin
    I have 25mm handlebar risers on my @ and have just fitted starbars. Thing is, the bars are a tad longer than standard bars and on full lock the engine revs due to the length of the throttle cables not being enough. I like the new bars and also like the risers, so is there a longer throttle cable...
  2. Xl600v

    Transalp
    Hi guys, been a tad windy today. Gust took out an oak in the field and also blew bike over onto car. Bugger. Now is there an aftermarket tank to improve range? Any options. Will a 650 tank fit? If not anyone got a decent tank? I await your wise words☺️

    Africa Twin
    Hi all, I want to bring the clutch lever closer to the grip on my new AT as it's just a tad too far, but there is no 'disc' to turn like the break lever - Anyone know how I do this? Bit reluctant to fiddle with the free play adjuster, dont know if that actually will bring the lever forward a...

  12. My indicators don't like the cold....

    Africa Twin
    I noticed last winter that my indicators seem to be slow to react when the temperature dropped, but at the moment things are getting a tad ridiculous. In the mornings it takes about 10 seconds for the left-hand indicators to start and about half that for the right-hand side. Any idea what would...
