  1. XL700 Footstand Extension Plate

    Transalp
    Hi,Can anyone recommend a good foot stand extension plate for the XL700?I've had a Cameltoe fitted for a couple of year and although it looked good I was not impressed with the way it bent with use and the bolts were continually working loose. So loose in fact that it now lies somewhere along...
  2. Immobiliser

    Transalp
    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...

  5. Inline fuel filter for EFI motor

    Mechanical Advice
    Looking at putting one of these on the AJP as the original pump/filter setup can cause issues. I've swapped them out now, but some users suggest a post-pump filter is a good idea too. A fiver or so is possibly cheap insurance! What sort of pressure is generated in a bike efi fuel line...
  6. New Africa Twin - 'Users Views'.

    Africa Twin
    Unsure if this subject has been covered in any depth but its almost been a year since the launch of the new @T. So, 'users' will have had enough time to evaluate and assess the new bike's potential. I know there have been so many reviews written on this bike, but what I'm looking for is the...
  7. Where to buy new/bigger jets?

    Africa Twin
    Hi guys, I have been reading lots on this forum today, it seems that from other users who have done the jetting thing, they have the same set up as me, piper cross foam air filter and motard venue exhaust. They say a number 118 or 120 jet is correct to make up for the richening the engine. But...

    Africa Twin
    Hello mates, I've finally took the plunge and decided to buy a new rear shock for my old girl. After some tought, I've decided to buy it from the guys at Rugged Roads. As far as I can read, they seem to be a competent company, with a good knowhow in the business. However, regarding this...
  10. Latest Euro Directive!

    Chatter
    Just thought I'd get ahead of the game and work out how to carry a spare wheel on my bike. Well, the Eurocrats come up with some really stupid ideas, so I reckon it's only a matter of time before they decide that us users of powered two wheelers need some more interference . . . . . ...
  11. Peage fees and payment

    Travel
    As someone who has only used FrenchPeage roads once and paid cash, I thought I'd ask a bit of advice here please! :-) With manned booths, you can pay cash or hand a debit card over, or hand a T tag to the attendant, Yes? Unmanned booths, you use change (cash), a debit card or a T tag, Yes? In...

  13. Bikesure European cover?

    Insurance
    I have been shopping around for a new Multibike policy for my two bikes and have essentially ended with Bikesure and eBike, as bother are happy to insure an import (NX400) Bikesure impress as they can be bothered to respond to enquiries and provide answers, eBike less so, they push use of email...

  16. IMPORTANT - forum security warning - watch your personal data

    Chatter
    When xrv.org.uk was compromised ages ago, DaveS was quick in his response to safeguard our data and minimise any loss. Under the new ownership, I don't think we can have confidence in the same level of commitment from Verticalscope to the safeguarding of our data. For this reason I suggest...
  17. Tapatalk support to be discontinuied in favour of motorcycle.com app

    Chatter
    Something that anyone who uses Tapatalk should be aware of. Verticalscope have their own apparently ad-ridden and somewhat buggy app that they want everyone to use instead of Tapatalk. There is also a paid version too. How do I know? Well, on the UK KTM Forum, Tapatalk was suddenly switched...
