  1. VIN/Tire Pressure/Model Year Sticker Location?

    Dominator / FMX
    In the box of parts that came with the '89 NX650 that I just bought, I found the metal plate/sticker that shows the VIN, tire pressure info, model year, etc. Where does this thing belong on the bike? I want to glue it back on, but I can't find it on parts diagrams.
  2. Is this normal on the 650 Alp????

    Transalp
    Just wondering if this is normal on a 650 Alp - there seems to be a serial / engine / VIN number party visible on the clocks - Not sure what or why it’s like that you’d think the entire number should be seen????

    Hi. My current back tire on my transalp 600v 1998 (Back: 120/90-17 m/c 64s) is more then dead, but i have some new tires sitting on my Africa twin 650 1988, (my father told me they are 140/80 R17, no idea how the naming system works.) I guess if they fit, it would be a slimmer tire, but would it...

    On June, 4th, 2017, I had a big problem with the front tire in the middle of nowhere in Sardinia (Italy) on my AT RD 07a. Unfortunatly it was Sunday and I had no spare tube on board.

  19. Daft question (it is..there's no denying it..) about the fuse box (RD04)

    Africa Twin
    How the heck do I open it? The entire bike is dead and I suspect (aka I hope) a blown main fuse but I can't get into the box and whilst I could force...I don't really want it. There's what appears to be a tab on the "front" (that's the say the side of the box closest to the rear of the bike). Is...

    Africa Twin
    Wondering if anyone knows if a later 750 left fork cover would fit on a 89AT? I like the looks of it versus the cover over the entire disc, maybe one from an RD04 possibly? Thanks
