  1. Africa Twin
    CRF1000L Windscreens & turbulence. Scepticism, humility and possibly poor spelling. I thought I'd briefly share my journey to achieving the holy grail of a wind and turbulance free ride. Relatively, of course. So, standard screen was, to be frank, rubbish for me. Wind right in the face...

  4. Africa Twin
    I'm about to tighten the nuts holding the exhaust down pipe to the cylinder head on my 2002 RD07A. My Haynes manual tells me that the torque setting should be 27nm (or 20 lbft), which strikes me as a bit high considering that I've just done the same job on my CB1300 and the torque setting there...

    I'm just going through my new to me Transalp 700, fitting a scottoiler and have discovered a major defect in the chain. PO stated chain and sprockets were about 1k old, no discerable wear on sprocket and chain could not be pulled away from the rear sprocket teeth and plenty of adjustment left, I...
  6. Bikes For Sale / Wanted
    This is a slightly odd one. This 750 Africa Twin is looking a new home and is priced at £5000. I'm not sure what model or year it is or of AT values, however there's a wee story to this one. The owner has just recently passed away and his family want the bike to go to a good home. All monies...

  8. Africa Twin
    Any one been fiddling yet I went out this morning for a run but froze so came back early and decided to adjust a few things. first was the throttle free play there's far too much for my liking the two demonstrators were the same that was an easy adjustment, the gear lever was a bit low another...
  9. Dominator / FMX
    It's nearly time to get new tyres for my Dommie. No idea how long the current BT-45s have been on there (I've done 7,000 miles on them) but they're well worn now. What's the weapon of choice for road-going inner-tubed Dommies these days? The Bridgies are ok, if a little squirmy going across...
  10. Dominator / FMX
    Sometimes on the way to work I see another Dominator. I think that's pretty rare as its the only one I have ever seen in existence in real life as they say. Any way its a red F reg one, I'm the dude on the P reg one, black white and red. Not that you will have ever seen the back of my bike as...

    I am about to fit a Tutoro Oiler on my Vara. I was thinking of the Givi rack but wondering where others may have fitted it No man is truly married until he understands every word his wife Isn't saying
  12. Varadero
    This morning in Georgia I did the chain and my friend took her for a spin. There is no garage able to take the rear wheel off and wrap them. Wondering what my best course of action is? No man is truly married until he understands every word his wife is NOT saying.
  13. Chatter
    I've just sold my africa twin and rang Carole Nash to cancel my insurance. I have six weeks remaining on the policy that I paid for up front last year. I was informed that there is a 50 pound cancellation charge, I expected the cancellation charge to be more than they owe me, as the telephone...

  15. Varadero
    I was given a HF 204 filter instead of the normal 303. Now it was free. He reckons it is the same, less capacity. Anyone used one? No man is truly married until he understands every word his wife is NOT saying.
  16. Mechanical Advice
    Ive just read a very old post about the use of magnetic sump plugs. May I offer a word of warning, Perhaps there are certain varieties that are better but in my experience they are far too weak. I know a couple of guys who managed to sheer them while installing. I did the same helping a friend...
