    Transalp
    i have this and it seems a shame to bin it genuine 600 exhaust muffler/silencer the 'bottom' end is is perfect nick, but there is rust and a 8mm hole on the rear - easy fix for someone who can weld or rivet a plate on top? collect north London or £10 postage (uk)

    Dominator / FMX
    Assume gear lever was worn, purchased new one, shaft also worn :( would it be ok to weld for now? I assume it's engine out and strip etc ? Any other ideas ? Could I drill through pedal and shaft tap it then add grub screw ? What options do I have Tia Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. RD04 broken screen

    How to.....
    heya, so my RD04 took a tumble and the screen was very badly damaged - the break stretches acriss about 75% of the screen. What are my options here? Glue it and, if so, which glue! (plastic weld is probably the correct term). Replacement? Does €75 sound about right to you?

  7. Exhaust Advice......Can I.......

    Africa Twin
    Hi all, I was just wondering if anyone knew whether the 'outer' part of the exhaust is removeable from the silencer? The can itself is in good nick but as you can see from the photos, the polished part of the exhaust has a 1.5in wide rust spot. I was thinking, is this part removable in order...

    I've got to weld a new bash plate mounting lug on my RD07. Obviously I don't want to fry anything, what do I need to disconnect or unplug? The lug is where the LH engine crash bar mounts. Cheers Chris
