  1. Base gasket sealant- how to apply?

    Africa Twin
    Hi all, Engine is coming back together, but wasn't sure how to apply sealant to the base gasket. Do I apply any? Both sides? One side? Which side? They are a metal pressed base gasket. Thanks, James

  6. Calendar

    Meet Ups / Rideouts
    Is there any chance that people update the calendar with events local or national. I think even the national wasn't in there or am I missing something. As a person on the edge of the mainstream membership and not always online it would be useful. Or am I looking at the wrong calendar?:)

    It was time to move on and I sold my trusted AT. I had it for four years, enjoyed it a lot. I did rebuild it almost totally, only engine wasn`t ever removed from frame. And what after? For me answer is Xchallenge :)

    No, I wasn't sure what it was going to be when I saw the title. It’s illegal to camp in the parks in Melbourne, so when is a tent not a tent? When it's an outfit :D Occupy Melbourne Tent Monsters - YouTube

  13. Better brakes

    Dominator / FMX
    Although the consensus here seems to be that the Dominator brakes are fine, I wasn't happy with mine (it could be they were worn) so I have upgraded them to a 320mm front disc - it fits and works really well! If anyone wants to do the same thing I can give the name of the German guy who...

  15. Wrong Shock from Wemoto - Hagon or Rebuild?

    Africa Twin
    Quick version without the waffle: If you have fitted a Hagon shock to an RD04, what do you think of the performance? Is it okay offroad (I've heard stories about failures)? Should I just get an original shock rebuilt and reconditioned and, if so, where? Maxton? ABE? Long version with all...

  18. Nagging Scottoiler problems

    Mechanical Advice
    I'm actually not a complete newbie on this one: I've had the bicycle Scottoiler on my mountain bike for years (and it works a treat!) but it's sufficiently different in design that comparison with its big motorbikey brothers doesn't really help. The Scottoiler on my AT doesn't work. It's the...
