Was it just germany that restricted them? Mine came from Italy should that be full power?
I dunno :confused:. I only found out mine was on saturday. If in doubt whip the carbs off and check the inside of the rubbers, as you can see from my pics there is a big difference between them so it'll be obvious if yours are restricted.

If they are then phone or go on wemoto website, £16 for an extra 7bhp............................... Its a NO BRAINER :thumbright:

Good luck.

I can see everone with an Africa twin taking thier carbs off this weekend whilst saying out loud "please let them be restricted, please let them be restricted........................." :D:D:D:D

For the sake of an hours pissing about you'll know for sure........ unless you have a rolling road in your garage ;)

Go on dig your spanners out, you know you want to...................you do...................oh yes you do :iconbiggrin:

Just ordered my inlet rubbers from Wemoto, and a sparkplug spanner (been putting off spark plug removal for two years now!!).

Will fit them on Saturday if they get here, and let you know the result.:)

Ian!

You have started a small power revolution amongst the RD03 owners!!!

You could sell stickers with; Fast by Holla to all RD03 owners with German market bikes, and possibly also get som % from VEEMOTO on all new inlet rubbers they all of a sudden begins to sell.

Must be the cheapest seven extra horses ever to be achived on a @

Kjell my friend, you deserve as much credit as me.

I just hope that 7 bhp is a noticable difference :D:D:D:D:D:D:D

Grahamgrazie, congratulations on your purchases, wemoto have had my stuff here the next day on the last two occasions. I was a bit wary of taking carbs off. replacing difficult to get to spark plugs but it will all be worth it in the end..................................... Come , Join me and Kjell and an army of RD03's......... All with 57 BHP.................... I HAVE A DREAM :D

Well it looks as if not only the RD03 are restricted!



Power reduced (It seem this text relates to the RD04-RD07A) Africa Twins
The Africa Twin is sold in at least three differently powered versions:

 60hp
 50hp (Austria, ...)
 34hp (Germany, especially for driving license class 1a)
The reduction is normally done by a reduced air intake diameter in the pipes (one for each cylinder) between carburettor and cylinder ("Ansaugstutzen"). The two big plastic plastic pipes can be easily seen if you have a look at the engine, but you won't see the presetted power without disassembling them.

Getting more power ...
If you want to remove the power reduction, you first have to lift off the tank. Then loosen the clamps which hold the air intake pipes between carburettor and cylinders. Now you can take away the carburettor. Store it at a clean place and ensure that now dirt can go in.
The reduction parts are placed directly in the air pipe. For 34hp, there are two metal plates (see picture) inside the pipe with an inner diameter of 19mm. You can just take them out and you have 60hp (all together about 1h).



If you have a 50hp version, the air pipe itselves is changed, which means that it has a smaller inner (!) diameter (about 32mm). But also no problem here: You can just cut out the plastic a bit to get the full diameter (about 36mm) for full 60hp power. If you don't like this, you can buy an official 60hp air intake pipe, of course. For several countries (e.g. Austria) the 50hp version additionally has an changed camshaft. For getting full power you will have to change it, too. The two cam shaft versions differ in the cam stroke: The international version has 38.5mm, while the 50hp version has ?.?? mm
