  2. Carrying a DSLR on a bike

    Photography
    Am I worrying too much? DSLR and small prime lens in a tail bag strapped to the back seat? I'd love to combine my bestest things to do - bikes and photography - but too nervous to take the camera. Not in case I drop the bike or anything, just vibrations and general bouncing about on the back...

  4. Footpeg rubbers - good or not so? Do you have the same pegs...

    Transalp
    Hi all, Kind of thought I should get some footpeg rubbers to reduce the vibrations, i dont think these are original Alp footpegs- - can anyone tell? And there seems to be a screw hole in the centre to add the rubbers, any thoughts? I cant see a brand name on the pegs, so makes life tricky to...

  8. 750 @ engine a step to far?

    Transalp
    Found this interesting site which charts the history of the 52 degree engine from VT500 to XRV750. Curious on your views on the following quote from this site; It has been broadly claimed, that the most effective use of the V-Twin 52o engine, is for the middle cubism motorbikes and that...

    Hi all I have been looking for a replacement for my Veho micro camera I mounted on the dash of the Alp complete with vibrations. The camera performed well but had a field of view of 60 deg. So after much searching I settled on the BulletHD2. I bought it from HedCamz, Carl the owner talked me...

Does anyone have any suggestions as to why this might be? tyres are fine, oil al recently...
  11. Vibrations in rain

    Transalp
    Dear all, during my last ride during a very heavy rain to Amsterdam the bike vibrates a lot when accelerating on low rpm, any idea what the problem could be? is it due to humidity which changes the fuel/air mixture or else? greets, Awsi

  14. Can oil cause vibrations?

    Africa Twin
    I've been struggling with a vibration on my bike for quite a while now and i have looked at pretty much everything except taking the engine apart. Carbs have been synced, plugs checked and so on. The vibes become noticeable at bout 4000rpm The vibrations started a few days after I did a oil...
  15. Engine vibrations and high idle speed.

    Transalp
    Hi guys, I'm experiencing some troubles with my '03 TA. A few months ago, with 37.000 kms on the clock and after driving more than half hour on a motorway the idle speed used to be 1.400 rpm, far too high. Then, at 39.000 kms the engine started to vibrate a little bit at any rpm, and the...
  16. Vibrations

    Africa Twin
    Im getting a lot of vibration from the back end of my RD-07 recently. It doesnt seem to be accompanied by any degree of extra noise though. I keep the chain pretty well lubed, tyres are at pretty much the right pressure (i keep them at slightly higher than the normal "just rider" pressures, as...

  18. Vibrations??

    Africa Twin
    Hi all, recently purchased an AT and been using it to run along to work o a daily basis which has made a nice change from riding the scooter (people tend not to ignore me now or assume I'll move. Or just go away). The thought did occur to me that possibly I was wasting the bike so thought I...

  20. Good Vibrations

    Africa Twin
    After having a tootle round the car park on fewtrees '99 RD07a I realised my '94 RD07 vibrates a bit more, and has done ever since I've owned it. So, I'm now on the quest for some silky smoothness :shock: I think the ignition's OK (judging by the colour of the 'plugs and the fact that it...
