I just got back from Germany visiting a mate who has had his Triumph T120 Tiger TR6 650 parked in his spare room for 20 yrs.
He bought the bike in the USA and was promised it had a genuine 20000 miles on it..........They lied.
He told me it was running fine the last time he rode it and it only...
Having left the AT in the garage a while it suffered from a seized choke plunger. The corrosion was in the rear cylinder carb. Luckily it did come out with a sharp yank. Slipped on Rugged Roads alloy replacement guides and lubed up nicely all ok again. The point being when you service your bike...
I thought you might expect a Yank to begin like that ;)
I have a '78 XL 125
I'm sure I'll have plenty of questions.
The good: under 700 miles on it.
The bad: Out in the weather for a long time.
I just got the piston unstuck and the muffler may be beyond repair.
Greetings Everyone .....
This is not your typical tire question, as I already know what tires I want, but unfortuantely over here in the US certain sizes are not obtainable. :confused:
First, I'm happy to say that I'm about to take ownership of a 92 RD04, to keep my 89 RD03 company. I'm...
My TA to AT conversion is almost finished. I need a few parts to finish. What I am looking for is an online European parts source that I can order parts via microfische etc. since I live in California.
I bodged up a gravity chain oiler over the weekend. It works on my AfricaAlp (convered TA). The oil bottle maybe wrong for real ATs so you'll have to get creative with that bit.
I know you guys use these alot and seeing...
I finished my chainoiler bodge. I put 200 miles on it today and it works surprisingly well. What it ISN'T is pretty. My bike is a 1990 Transalp with many Africa Twin bits. It's like this because the ATs were never imported to cruiser-happy America and poor sods like us have to build our own...
Anyone have a tried and proven method to legaly import an @ into the USA???
I am presently living in southern Spain and purchased a 2002 XRV750 this past Wednesday. I like it so much that I would like to take it home with me next year.
Your advice is greatly appreciated.
Yep, I didn't sell my really clean Transalp for nothing! I just purchased this from a fella way down in Southern CA. I did 1000 miles on her in less than 24 hours to get her home in WA... nice solid feel to her. :wink:
