    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...

    Hi I get an occasional engine cut out on a 1999 Dominator. It happens randomly about 3 times a year during winter (I use it daily). But it's always the same: riding to work, everything warm, it just dies. This happens idling, accelerating, or doing anything really. Electrics seem fine but it...

    Having being away from the forum for a few years after selling my Transalp, it's great to be back, this time with my dream bike, an Africa Twin '97 RD07a. The place has certainly changed, but I'm still indebted for all the great advice that I received when prepping the 'Alp for the trip to...

    It was a nice feeling too get a pass without any advisories today after I did a part rebuild last year with limited mechanical knowledge, thanks to everyone who pitched in with help when I needed it. The guy was gushing over my bike, gave me a warm feeling of pride :D
