    does anyone know about africa twin tank fittings? I understand the RD03, RD04 and transalp 600 all have the same frame? and hence the fuel tanks are interchangable? and also do RD07/RD07A tanks fit the RD04? basically to put it more simple, what tank options are there for an RD04 ...

    The tacho on my RD04 won't read higher than 3500-4000 rpm,irrespective of speed. Everything else works fine and dandy. I've checked the wiring for any breaks - non visible. So,as suggested some time ago by a forgotten forum member (apologies to whoever that was) the ICU may be the fault. I...

    Hi guys, can someone explain in baby language what the screw on the side of the bike for the rear suspension does on the 650. I can understand the concept of preload which i think basically makes the rear suspension harder...the screw does not adjust this it adjusts the damping correct? but...

    I really, REALLY don't understand electricity. The car has a voltmeter that is showing about 11V when the car is running. Putting the multi-meter across the battery terminals shows 12.10 at rest and 11.30 when running. Can there be any other explanation than that the alternator's shot? Thank...

    Look at this picture. ] Quite nice you may think, a bit retro and quaint................................but if I tell you that this picture is of a pencil drawing done by a local lad you might understand the title of this post. I have seen a lot of the stuff this guy does, and it's 'kin...

    My AT has a Mikuni pump installed by a previous owner. I want to ask you guys if this is the normal installation. It seem to be prepared for drainage ??? or why that short vertical tube (plugged)? The tube is probably pvc, incompatible with petrol as the tube (that should be transparent) has...

    To test if fuel pump is faulty you need to fill the tank and then bypass the pump. Then if the missing disappears the fuel pump is faulty. And if missing continues it is something else. But you need a fuel pump that has 2-4 psi pressure. What if the pumps pressure is not that high. Will the...

  15. Transalp
    Can anyone tell me what 'Cush Drives' are and what 'Brushes' are. I haven't the foggiest and the garage bloke was going on about them on a Transalp I had many years ago. As I am about to buy another one (woo hoo!) I want to have some idea as to what he was talking about.
