  3. Warped Discs - already ???

    Varadero
    The Vara has just had its first 4k service. The pads show no wear on the front at all but the garage have agreed that one of the discs is warped already. I'm a bit miffed :confused: Is this a regular issue for the Vara? I do a lot of city traffic thro Brumijam but that can't explain the...

    Africa Twin
    Just bought an AT :) after many years spent in the wilderness riding all (road only) sorts of two wheeled machines - 400 fours, ducati 748, cbr600s, R1s etc. Last decent steed was a TDM850 which served me well up to 43k miles. Current stable is z1000 (needs TLC) z650 (being used) ZX7r...
  8. Bike that has been sitting 5 years

    Mechanical Advice
    I've just bought a ZX6 that has a thousand miles on it and has been sat in a garage for 5 years untouched (2001 model)! Calipers have seized and chain is shagged but other than half an inch of dust it looks ok. Now, before the first fire up (hopefully) I was going to change the oil and filter...

  10. Quick jaunt to Devon

    Ride Reports and Pictures
    Set off on Saturday morning for a quick jaunt to Devon and a nights camping. We loaded the bikes up as best we could to check out our load carrying and kit in preparation for the Stella. Despite riding through several prolonged and heavy downpours, the sun was shining as we rode around the...
  11. Best way to spend £1000 on an AT?

    Africa Twin
    I've been getting restless and have been toying around with the idea of getting either another bike to keep the AT company or just replacing the AT. Trouble is the AT is just so bloody good at what she does I'm loathe to part with her. I've been riding my mates ZX-6 recently and it's a laugh...

  14. My (finally) modified AT plus two more

    Africa Twin
    In the end I decided to make my AT the way I really wanted it; quite expensive (don't ask!) but now I'm grinning from ear to ear. Here she is, plus two more that belong to a couple of friends and members of the AT club. We picked up all three yesterday... Inverted 50 mm front forks by...
  15. Going up or down, what's the hardest?

    Chatter
    I was at Bridge Motorcycles today and was looking at some of the smaller bikes. One, a 650 trail bike much like my old KLX-650 staggered me at how totally tiny it now looks after I've been riding things like the ZX7, @ and now the Vara. I then thought that it would be quite daunting getting back...

    I was chatting to a mate about my search for an @twin and he mentioned that he thought he'd seen on in a shop in York. So I ring the shop and ask if they have one and what its condition is. 'Oh yes' he says 'Ive got an Africa Twin, silver, 3K on the clocks, givi top box, 2003 plate, £3,975'...

    Hi everyone! This is the month i get rid of my Kawasaki zx6 and get an Africa Twin (well thats the plan anyway).

  20. Some DIY mods....

    Chatter
    Ever wondered what to do with that old lid's visor? (Fitted to a mint ZX10!!) I know courier bikes can be a bit dodgy but this is something else.. Interesting handlebar muffs - plastic oil containers! At least they're definitely windproof....
