    My 600 (1987) developed a flat spot this afterrnoon, around 4,500 revs she bogs down momentarily before picking up again. It feels like fuel starvation, except that she'll then shoot round to the red line with no problem. So, given that 90% of carburetor problems turn out to be electrical...

    2001 650 Brand new "motobatt" battery fitted recently, all working fine, then one cold morning it only had enough power to turn the engine over twice, then went flat. Battery recharged from the mains. then all starts fine I suspect the Oxford heated grips are killing the battery. They are...

    Updated with resolution - XL250s indicator / turn signals staying on and not flashing Hi. So the first problem has cropped up with the "new" XL. The indicators come on but do not flash so I suspect the flasher relay. Can anyone point me to the location of the relay please so I can do some...

    So how do you go about choosing a proper size fuse? I received my new 3 circuit setup and would like to get it installed now. One line is going to my gps and another to the rear trunk. is there a rule of thumb to use for figuring things out? Also for the switched circuits can I use a rear turn...

    I need the help off you experts. My rd03 runs really well. But as it gets warm after maybe few miles the neutral light starts to flicker then goes completely. Bike still running fine. But if you turn it off starting is tricky. You need to pull clutch lever in, and have stand up to restart...

    I have a new-to-me 2005 Transalp V4. Having now read the users manual it stares that when I turn the ignition on the little green 'key' light (immobiliser system indicator) on the RH side of the neutral indicator should turn on for a few seconds and then go off? That does not happen. turn key...

    Hi I have got most things working following my rebuild. The only niggling thing I seem to be left with is that the engine will turn over and start when the start button switch is in the off position as well as the on position. I must have a wire crossed over somewhere, but I have checked...

    Hi, I'm a newcomer to Africa Twin's world. But i'm already loving it! Just bought a RD04 1990 and my first problem is that the turn signals are out. I assume it is the relay but... can't found it! Can anyone help?

    Some wag has cut the line from the left fuel tap and drained my tank of my RD04 Africa Twin. Very nice of them. I am thinking of taking the bike to my workshop and fixing it there. Question1, If I turn the left fuel tap off can I run the bike on the right tap or do I need to replace the hose...

    Hi all, Yet another video.... As the bike season is upon us and our thoughts turn to ADV Riding / Touring, what camera will you be buying to capture the big trip? Don't be buying a DJI Osmo...... sigh..... :(

    Does anyone know what the top left red light is on my RD04 1990 ? im assuming oil pressure switch light, It comes on after after the engine has got warm and just glows, revving it up makes no difference, turn engine off and after its cooled down the light is off, Im thinking faulty pressure...

    Hi My 87 TA has developed a problem when trying to start. Basically when you press the start button, there is a 'pop' and sometimes a small puff of smoke near the starter solenoid area. This in turn seems to discharge the battery. I have replaced the solenoid but its still doing it. I have the...

    I have a 2010 XL700VA with just over 19,000 on the clock. I use it to commute and only do about 50 miles per week. For the past few weeks, from time to time, the engine will cut out when I turn sharply right so it is always at low speed. It restarts OK but it is embarrassing! Any ideas why this...
