I am in the middle of converting my US-spec Transalp to an Africa Twin RD03. The frame and most parts carry over to both models. I am using all original Africa Twin parts when possible and upgrade parts elsewhere. All parts are being powder coated or refurbished.
In the end...
My carbs are worn past the point of repair and the only option seems to be some secondhand carbs; have seen them on eBay Germany in the past but not for a while.
Haven't posted here for years but thought it might be worth a try.
Anyone got some RD03 carbs lurking in the back of the shed?

I think I need a new battery as mine gets discharged sometimes like this morning I couldn't start the bike. Any recommendations? I don't want to get a lithium one if I don't have to as they are over 100 quid but I will get one if it's worth it I use the bike every day rain or shine...
So after 31,500 miles the headlight bulb dip filament gave up on my 650 the first thing that's ever gone wrong with the bike :D I found out when I switched on the ignition thirty five miles away from home in the pitch black :( and so the beam adjuster came in really handy as it let me lower the...
I am in the middle of deciding whether to replace an output shaft on the AT, XRV750 - 2002.
Can anyone give me a list of the parts I need to order, gaskets etc to do this job? - gonna use the VT750 shaft.
Also is there anything else worth doing whilst I have the engine in pieces?
Having refurbished my rear brake callipers on my 1996 XR250R, I though the front callipers would be the same ..... BUT alas not.
I discovered phenolic pistons in the front callipers ? Am wondering if they’re worth re-using, as i’ve never come across phenolic pistons before and I was...
I recently bought my first AT RD07. It`s an import from Austria, and I`ve learned that those models are restricted. The restriction in the inlet has been replaced with normal full flow inlet rubber manifolds/isulators by PO.
But what about the camshafts they put in the Austrian models...
Hi, do any of you guys have any idea what a 1978 Orange tank black side panels Honda XL125 is worth at all please.
She has seen a lot of better days, bit scruffy and in need of quite a few parts inc wiring harness and silencer. Got a dink in the tank too.
Got a list of about 30 bits to find...
Hello everyone.For the last 4 years i am on a transalp 700 that proved to be a reliable machine.I decided that is time to go to the bigger league and i am checking my options. Either i will go for a brand new motorcycle which will cost me over 15k euros or i will check for something used...
Just a quick heads up- a friend of mine is selling his XRV650
Name is John 07896 700043
If you look on ebay- its the only one there.
Started off at £999, but I would say its got to be worth between £3300-4000, given the rarity & condition.
p.s in the signature link at the bottom of...
Hello. Has anyone tried the DCCDIP2 CDI in place of the DC-CDI CDIs? I'm wondering if it might be worth trying out on my RD03.

My RD 4 seems to be running a little lean after i have installed a hi-flo filter and Arrow exhaust. I am thinking of fitting dynojets stage 1 kit, but is it worth the money?
The Arrow is fittet with a sligtly opened-up db-killer.
Just bought a 2006 FMX 650.
Found this strange custom header in a box of spares that came with the bike.
Anyone have any idea if they would fit or the performance etc.
Also got a spare 650 engine and a Keihin 42mm flatslide carb ;-)
The engine and carb will be sold later just want opinions if...
So I have a 650v4 Transalp with 55,000 on the clock. Only proviso on the MOT from October was front discs are slightly worn. The bodywork and engine are a little cosmetically untidy- the engine's silver paint has come off in places and there is the spot of rust here and there but nothing major...
Has anyone done the 440cc conversion? If so what are the benefits and drawbacks? I am about to start an engine rebuild and wondered if it's worth doing.
