    What do you think ? Is it possible? Recommended? I have seen a few "universal" oil coolers on eBay but can they be fitted to a bike that never had a oil cooler to start with. Then of course the best option might be to fit the oil cooler from the RD04. Anyway what do ye think ? Thanks :)...

    Hi all, I posted here about 1 week ago about my 3 year old dead battery that caused one of my CDIs to stop working. Since then I have got a new battery (12v 14A gel battery) For a few days I had no issues, but the last 2 days driving my cdi has been acting up. This is what happens...

    Hi all, Why I'm asking is because I only had CDI failure symptoms for 1 or 2 km and then I put my spare CDI in. Basically what happened was my battery is in very bad shape and isn't holding a charge, the last 3 days the battery was even worse. I was on my way to a motorcycle shop to get a...

    Quick question, My starter Relay needs replacing, I'm not close to any motorcycle shops etc. Can I use a car Relay if it looks the same ? Or has anybody any ideas of what can be used ? Thanks :) Traveling The World Two Up on a 1989 Africa Twin 650. Updates Here...

  7. How to.....
    Hi all you AT experts. I'm riding a lot of dirt roads in Australia and really need some help adjusting my Wilbers 640 rear shock as my XRV 750 RD07 is performing very badly on these corrugated dirt roads. I have earlier changed the preload so it is definetly not correctly adjusted now. I really...

    Does anyone know where I can get a chain guide rail/chain slipper for a 1983 XL250R? They are not available from Honda nor, at the moment, from David Silver. I have emailed numerous companies around the world who advertise this item on their websites but I don't think anything will come of it...

    Hi, I'm a newcomer to Africa Twin's world. But i'm already loving it! Just bought a RD04 1990 and my first problem is that the turn signals are out. I assume it is the relay but... can't found it! Can anyone help?
  10. Transalp
    Hi There, I have a 1997 Transalp XL600V. Its my first venture into the world of bikes and I am loving it so far. Simple question (I hope!). Which type of coolant should I use in the bike? OAT Antifreeze or Silicate Antifreeze? Does it matter? If so why does it matter? Thanks in advance! Paul

    Hi, I'm new to this forum so I apologise if this has been discussed. I did so a search but couldn't find anything exactly like my problem. So, I bought myself some Heed Engine/Crash bars for my XL700 a few days ago and was looking forward to getting them on this weekend, XL 700V Transalp...
  12. Africa Twin
    Hi all, Has anybody fitted the "HeavyDuties" 60mm bar risers with Renthal FatBars ? I have HEL brake lines so they should be fine but what about speedo, clutch & throttle cables ? Bike is an RD03 and front end is stock apart from the brake lines. Traveling The World Two Up on a 1989...

    Hi everyone. Due to popular demand, I am starting another group buy for the "world famous" Stefter sprockets. On the last GB we had several of flake-outs. It is not disastrous as I still managed to sell everything, but it just took longer than expected. The next Group Buy will require a...

    My girlfriend an me rode around the world with two XL700VA. Honda does not sponsor us or even give us a discount on anything. Thereby this is completey honest: these bikes are undestroyable and they can suffer a lot. We rode 183,475 Km (app. 110k miles) and we had nearly no problems except...

    This seems to be a nice tool to find campsites for free. At least in North America there are plenty of them listed. For the rest of the world it´s terra incognita more or less. https://freecampsites.net Check out this one, too: http://ioverlander.com/ You have to flag "informal campsites"...
