    Africa Twin
    Long time since I posted on here, but I've just found a rare treat in need of some love:p I say rare because bikes of any size are anyway extremely difficult to find here in Myanmar, but an AT is an even more stunning find:thumbright: This one is up for sale for around 1800 US$ so I'm sooo...

  9. Engine temp

    Dominator / FMX
    I just got back from a 50 mile brap, mainly fast country roads with a little town work towards the end. An hour later i put my hand on the clutch cover and it feels really hot, an hour later. Now by hot i mean putting my hand on the cover and leaving it on, it was uncomfortable to say the least...

  11. Rear wheel no longer fitting

    Africa Twin
    The whole bike is now fully restored. Now that I am trying to fit the rear wheel, it looks like the combination of wheel and spacers (one on each side) is 4mm too wide. I really don't know what to think even though I have attempted a dozen times to refit the wheel. Can the trailing have...

  13. Temperature gauge pointer mooves up and down!

    Africa Twin
    Hello from winter Norway! I have a question regarding the Temp gauge! When the needle points above the C or at low operating temp, the needle is "quiet" in other words does not moove like crazy up and down! When the temperator rises and the pointer passes the middle of the gauge, it starts to...

  16. Rear shock XL700

    Transalp
    Anyone here either changed the spring in the standard shocker, or changed it completely ?? I've added preload to my standard shock already which has helped, but it's still a bit lacking when loaded up with luggage. I'm reluctant to spend loads on an aftermarket shock unless I knew it was going...
  17. Annoying noise!

    Africa Twin
    Hi, I'm hoping someone can help me identify a noise on my 1997 AT? It's best described as a whirring that is only audible when applying throttle and moving. You notice it from around 30mph and it sounds like it's from the chain/sprocket area? It goes off immediately on overrun but returns as...
  18. Running Hot?

    Transalp
    So I've spent all day riding on/off road at the Touratech event today and if I don't keep to speeds above 30/40 the radiator fan was on/off with the temp hitting 100c regularly. Is this normal for the Transalp 700 or should I look at changing the coolant. No idea when it will have been changed...
