  1. My speedo stopped working

    Africa Twin
    So I picked up my new to me RD07 a week ago in Ireland. I'm in Italy now, after about 1,000 miles, and the speedometer has stopped working. It was a bit "bouncy" before, but then about 1 hour after I spray washed the bike, the speedo stopped all together. I checked the cable on both ends and it...

  5. Fizzle, sizzle and hiss

    is the noise my airhead make since it was washed last week. Water is sitting in the gap between the rocker cover and head (above the centre bolt) and slowly boiling away. Now without taking the cover off again for a look, should there be a way for the water to escape or does it just sit there...

    Came in to work today on my TA - it was awful! Running like a pig at low revs. Feels like it's running on 1 cyl , then onto 2. Then it occurred to me - I washed it the other day. I must have got some water where it shouldn't be! Hopefully it's just water in the carbs. Bugger - as if I don't...
