  1. XR
    Hi Team, Just thought I'd ask on here before I put a good hole in £300... does anyone have an oversize tank for an '02 XR400 floating about? Was after the IMS 4.0 gallon one in Natural colour, but would also be happy with a Clarke or Acerbis. Done a lot of looking around, and 98% of them are...

    Some folks may be interested to see the Ural chair which has recently been fitted to my trusty @, supplied & fitted by sidecar specialist Watsonian who fabricated a bespoke sub-frame which connects the Ural chassis to the bike's frame. Watsonian gave me some good tuition before we rode the 200...
  3. Dominator / FMX
    My '99 Dommie is getting close to 48,000 miles, I've had it 4 years and about 12,000 of those miles. It's due for an oil and filter change which I can do myself but I wonder if it's time for more complex work, like getting the valve clearances checked / adjusted, which I couldn't do myself. What...
  4. Africa Twin
    Hi all, Just spotted this when I took the bash plate off my RD07 A/T. The frame down tube is still fixed solid and the rusted metal looks like it was very thin in the first place so I was wondering how structural the rusted bit is, and is it safe to ride? I know welding will be needed at some...

Returning via a different route and crossing into Spain about three quarters of the way up and back to Bilboa on mainly dirt roads. The Transalp...

    Hi, I currently have a Varadero and am looking for a low mileage crosstourer if anyone is thinking of parting with theirs. It seem the natural progression from the Varadero. Cheers Justin

    One of my AT's handlebar end weight assemblies has broken, right where the end weight engages (well, engaged, because the weight has disappeared) with the lead slug that sits inside the handlebar. The whole thing contains two rubber bungs, the slug, the snap ring, the end weight and the machine...

    I'm looking to take a stand at Motorcycle Live 23 November - 1 December this year, in Birmingham, to promote my phone app. I'm going to need some help from people who use the app to show it off to punters. I get lots of passes into the show so if you can help out one day you could visit the...
  11. Africa Twin
    Age, weather and / or chemicals - the brackets I can source or fettle, the front rim may need to be, erm, retired and replaced, haven't checked further if it's merely cosmetic or actually structural. Doesn't look good around the valve though!

  16. Africa Twin
    Hello everybody. I wanted to change the dashboard lighting of my AT, so I bought some color leds (T5 for the tripmaster and T10 for the rest). In the beginning I bought Blue leds but I wasn't happy with the result, so I bought Green and White (6000k color) leds to try. If you check at the...

    Flying back from SE Asia last week got talking to a Malaysian guy who works in the rubber industry. He reckons they have almost perfected a new rubber compound that never wears out! Apparently the boffins have identified some natural enzymes, which, when added to the latex, react with one kind...
