My Africa Twin is the lightest of my fleet. I just fired up the AT yesterday after the winter re-do. I'll finish putting on the rest of the bits later this week.

Dented headers

Wow, farall, those look great. Mine never could have looked that good. Several pages back I offered up my severely dented bash plate for any takers. Well, beyond a severely bashed bash plate, the...

Vht

Just a heads up for anybody thinking of painting their engine. Based on a ton of research (which turned out to be worthless) I painted my engine with VHT engine enamel. And based on comments on...

Suspension Source

All of this talk about rear suspension has reminded me that I've replaced, rebuilt, or refinished just about everything on my @T but the rear shock. And since the Euro/USD exchange rate is near...

The 12 ga wires fit but it's a tight squeeze. The grommet has plenty of room for the larger wires. The trick is that the larger gauge wires don't bend as easily. I shaved a bit off the top of the...

Yes, new wiring (12 ga). And yes, I agree it would have made total sense to have the had wires long enough to have gotten to the rectifier. But I already ordered a pre-wired plug from Eastern Beaver...

It's only money, right?

I couldn't live with having a working yet half burned stator. I sent it off to Rick's Motorsport Electrics, and for a mere $145 including shipping, I had my stator rebuilt. I could have bought a new...

Good question. I don't know if they had to drill for the spokes and nipples. I know that they told me they may have to drill to get the right angles, but I don't know if they ever did. It certainly...

The front is 21x1.85 (36 spoke) and the rear is 17x3.5(32 spoke). I seriously considered going for an 18" rear setup but I wanted gold rims and didn't want the quality risk associated with gold...

Woody's Eye Candy

New rims from Rugged Roads superlaced by Woody's to freshly powdercoated hubs. They look so good in real life.

Stator question

Hey gents, looking for some thoughts. I've been sorting through a variety of electrical issues with my new-to-me @t. The one of the electrical issues started here at the regulator/rectifier plug and...

Do any of you folks in the USA need a sufficiently well bashed up bash guard? Both sides and the middle are beat up. Bad. I bought a less used one, so it's either scrap this one for a couple bucks,...

The parts fiche for the 1993 AT does not list (or diagram) a thrust washer. It says you should have just a 12.2X40X5 washer, which it sounds like you have. Also, I think, the Haynes manual covers the...

Talon

RMAK,
I have about 500 miles on my set of Talon wheels (Talon hubs, the rear rim is an Excel, and I think the front is a Behr). It's hard to give a good performance review since I swapped the stock...
