  1. Dominator / FMX
    Hello. I have being lately doing some maintenance to my dominator and in this opportunity is time for the oil filter. I was browsing online that there are some washable oil filter, basically a oil filter that you could clean and reuse like the k&n air filter, made from stainless steel...
  2. Transalp
    The paper element air filter in my 650 TA is on its last legs. I moved from the UK to Aus a few years ago, so I get to trailride in deserts occaisionally, which means that cleaning the airfilter can be a daily task as they get really clogged on the very dry dusty days. The ideal would be one...
  3. Transalp
    Well so far the price is one snapped off fairing spigot and a mullered crankshaft cap. :( And the reason for all this? 32,000 mile service (4th 8,000 mile service) in which I have found that all the tappets are nicely in spec, the spark plugs are lovely so they've gone back in (new at the...

  5. Product Reviews
    I have been using the Caberg Trip flip front helmet for some years now and it's starting to look "dog eared" and tatty.... I went on T' Interweb and was excited to see that caberg had "updated" the trip for 2010 and the new kid on the block was called the Caberg KONDA. Caberg Trip Caberg...

    Just come across the Givi X-01 helmet whilst browsing the web.. Here is the bumf.... The X01 will change the mind of those who think that the motorcyclist helmet has no more to offer from the conceptual point of view. With this project GIVI adds a fresh and important turn to the current...
  7. For Sale / Wanted
    SOLD thanks to all who replied Last year I bought an excellent pair of used trousers via this forum. I'd been ill and had lost a lot of weight, but was expecting to put it all back on, and, so-to-speak, grow into them, no such luck! They are now for sale. A pair of Sand/Black , Cordura type...
  8. Transalp
    Power mods (with pics). Howzit all you Alpers, I posted a few treads some time back, asking advise on gains for the 650. Some suggested I buy a 700 and some suggested I leave it standard. Most missed my requirements all together. I do not want the 700, :blob6:I love the 650. All I needed...

  10. For Sale / Wanted
    i am selling my blue/ black RICHA mens textile jacket (m) I have had this jacket from new for about the past 2 years. It is in generally good condition. The velcro strips have come slightly ditached from the front pockets, -easily fixable- and the pull bit of the zip has com off at some point -...
  11. Helmets
    Thought some of you might be interested in a good helmet cheap. Been wearing my original for about 4years or more. Apparent differences from C2 only in the flip catch shape. The washable interior headlining (press studs), on the C1 appears to be missing on the C2, (c2 adverts say better venting...
  12. Clothing
    Ok I’m after some new textile trouser but don’t really want to be spending hundreds on them. They must be waterproof/breathable and have removable/washable liner. At present I have some tatty AKITO Python that have broken zips and dead Velcro but I only use then to put over work trousers to...
  13. Helmets
    Hi All, Decided a while ago that I'm gonna start using ear plugs for all non local journeys. Trouble is I cannot seem to find ones that work properly. The main problem being as soon as I put on my lid they either fall out or become slightly dislodged so they don't really have much effect. I've...
  14. Africa Twin
    ...for the AT? My guess is that foam filter technology, as used on enduro and motocross bikes, would the ideal solution for a washable air filter for our trip through Africa. There'll be dusty bits through northern and southern Africa and that's the sort of conditions motocross bikes are...
  15. Transalp
    I have a trip planed for the Transalp and would like to have a washable air filter. Not too keen on K & N filters and would prefer a foam filter as I think they offer the best filtration. My TA is a 04 and does suffer from poor carburetion; most noticeable is a slight hesitation around 2500 rpm...
