  1. Fixed my neutral switch....

    Transalp
    I was told it was intermittent when I bought the bike, and had been checked out and nothing seen to be wrong. So, investigations were made, and I soon discovered it barely reached the contact point inside the gearbox. I’ll probably order a new one, maybe, and I didn’t want to leave the copper...

    Good evening all, I'm having problems wondering whether the fmx sparkplug should be a short plug as each time I renew the plug it never seems to go in all the way, I clean threads and put plug in until I feel it stop hard and I can see the crush washer still isn't home, it's been like this since...

  10. O-rings from the RD07 center stand

    Africa Twin
    I am curious. When I removed my center stand before the restoration, I didn't have these rubber o-rings. It seems my center stand has a little side-to-side play. I bought two from my ,ocal hardare store and they are smaller. They do fit the two sleeves/ pivots. Where do these o-rings go? I think...

  14. front sprocket retaining washer

    Transalp
    Just wondering how long the retaining washer for the front sprocket should last? I had to replace mine quite soon after buying the bike because all the teeth had worn away allowing the front sprocket to slide along the spline and rub on the cover under deceleration. That was about 6,000 miles...

    I have a 2005 Transalp with 52k miles on the. Clock. The speedo drive stopped working yesterday and I thought it would be the plastic drive wheel that was worn as I have had to replace it previously. In fact I actually had one ready that had ordered a while ago expecting it to need replacing...
  16. Speedo drive

    Transalp
    Does anyone know if there is supposed to be a washer or spacer between to fork and the speedo drive assembly? I know there is one on the opposite side. But for some reason, when I do up the shaft on the wheel. The bolts holding the disk are rubbing on the caliper on the speedo drive side. Its...
