  1. Transalp
    Hello fellow Alpiners. My '91 XL600v has blessed me with many kilometres around the world and we still have many more to do. We've been on the road for over two years and done about 80k together and the bike has roughly done around 150k. I would tell you the exact number but the speedo unit got...

    OK guys sorry for the WTF but I have had this bike two years in February 2017 and since I have had the bike I have know there has been a slight blow from the exhaust manifold. I think this causes the famous loud back fire! Any way face palms aside the bike has not blown up - yet. I do think I...
  3. Africa Twin
    Hi all, I'm having trouble finding any suitable paint for the exhaust heat shields on an RD03. What have people used in the passed? As far as I know the colour is Magnesium Gold. Will regular paint work or will it need to be high temperature? I won't be painting the engine casings...

  6. Dominator / FMX
    I have made new brakelines for my ol' girl. I did not want to use the redymade kits from Ebay as i want to keep the pipe piece on the fork, so only way was making them my self with Venhill fittings. I think the result look pretty good, and it make a world of difference to braking capacity. If...

    Hello Guys My name is Juan, I'm new to the dominator/motorcycle world, I recently bought a 00 dommie that ride pretty decent. I have a small issue while the bike is running at low rpm, basically start to lose power until the rpms are around 4k which looks like that the spark plug is already...

  16. Helmets
    I like wearing an open face helmet on my old Transalp. I have a couple of Davida jet helmets which I find very comfortable and quiet but I can't seem to find comfortable goggles to wear with a Davida. The problem is the brow of the helmet comes quite low down my forehead and pushes the gogles...

  19. Africa Twin
    I live in South Wales which is a great part of the world to ride a bike, 'on or off road' but its not so good if you need special people with specific skills. "Now then, to the crux of the matter". My RD04 has been giving me a slight misfire for some months now, as some of you will be aware as...
  20. Transalp
    It's been about 5 months since the Alp has had a decent clean so I thought that I'd give her a treat this afternoon. I spent 2 1/2 to 3 hours cleaning off 5000 miles of crud and low and behold I can now see what the original colour is :). I gave the chain a bit of lube and also fitted some...
