    Hi :) I have an RD04 from 1990 with 67000kms on the clock. The last couple of days I have started to notice a scratching sound from the engine when I pull the clutch and let I roll to a traffic light or something. Everything sounds perfect in neutral and when driving that's why I am worried...

    My shiny new piston and rings have arrived but which ring goes to the top? There is no edge profile to worry about but one ring clearly has a shiny edge and the other is dull. There is no marking to indicate which is the top either. So lets have a group guess shall we?????? Many thanks. Ben...

    So there's a rattly noise. It sounded like there was something in the exhaust expansion chamber - like a catylytic converter or something - the rattle had always been there but off and on and no real pattern to it Maybe it's the cold weather but now it's there and bothering me every ride. It...
  8. Africa Twin
    Hi all, Just putting the clutch basket back together, and I have 7 friction plates in total. When I put it all together and tighten down the spring plate though, the plates move about freely. I would have expected the plates to be held in place by the pressure plate, until the push rod presses...

    Hey, The troubles (or at least what seems to be like one) after my Reg/Rec cooked itself and my battery seem to continue. After I changed the RR, fuel pump for Facet one (and now try to fix the lazy tacho), it looks to me as if also the engine is now much hotter than before. I compare...

    Did not meet it's reserve on fleabay last night. Looks in good condition, I kind of like the colour scheme. The owner says the chokes are fine, sprocket is ok, rectifier and fuel pump are working. Any other things to check out on it? Owner is asking sub £2k. Ok it is 23 years old but 45k miles...
  11. Dominator / FMX
    I find myself in the middle of an electrical nightmare and I am not sure about what to do to fix it. I decided to have a go at wiring up my dommie project and I am way out of my comfort zone. Starting at the rear of the bike I have done the battery, solenoid and voltage regulator which was just...
  12. Africa Twin
    After changing my brake hoses my front brakes started seizing so I took off calipers and saw that seals are shot, pistons have some wear from dirt getting pass seals and there was a lot of crud almost impossible to clean. Some corrosion was present also but it doesn't look too bad. So, I decided...

    I thought i'd clean the crankase screen filter today while changing the oil. Its never been done since i've had the bike. as adviced by someone in the forum, spare gasket on standby. Bits and pieces off, side cover off. without even taking the screen off, i could see it was spotless, took it...

  15. Africa Twin
    I could do a search but I'm a lazy fekker and there are not enough recent posts any how :rolleyes::D RD04 fork oil, I'm getting conflicting recommendations from SAE 5W to 10W, I've still got 15W from the Varadero I'm not planning on rally stuff but worry 15 may be too viscous. Got progressive...

    In case you haven't seen it, the Dommie is featured in the Used Bike Chooser section of the March 2014 issue of Bike magazine. A bit garbled though: on the one hand it praises the "solid engine" then suggests that "the major worry on a Dommie is the motor..." Don't buy Bike just for this...

    Not sure if this counts as a long term use report but as boots are like tyres, and always cause a vast divergence of opinions, I thought it might be useful for someone to know that: I have had my Altberg Hogg Microlite now for almost 5 years and have ridden over 40k miles in them. Boots are...
