New stuff fitted and here to be fitted:

R1150GS wrap-around handguards







Service Kit - 4x plugs, oils filter & tool, fuel filter, air filter, oil drain plug washer + new air filter cover bolts


Centre Stand


The easy stuff first - new rear shock will be the next purchase, I think. That won't be cheap though....

I have a set of them lying in my workshop for ages, but never mounted them. How do they perform, esp. in cold and wet?

Btw, nice color scheme! One of my two favorites!

Cheers, Andy

I've only just fitted them, so haven't ridden in the cold or wet yet, but everything I've heard is that they're good, and even more so if you fit the Touratech spoliers.



I've just got to find some sort of spacer to make sure that there's no interference with the throttle grip.

Let us know how it works, after you have insalled it! I espesially would like to know how sturdy it is and how easy it is to lift the bike on the stand? Ive been thinking to get a centerstand on my RD07A, but i havent decided witch brand to get.

Yes, genuine Honda stand.

I'll hopefully be fitting it on Sunday, so will get back to the thread then on how it went (how much blood was spilt, how many banged fingers, things like that )

Hi everybody, this is my first post here, although I've been lurking for some time...

Just to post a link to the Portuguese Africa Twin forum.

http://africatwinpt.forumotion.net/

If some of you speak Portuguese drop by and say Hi.

Cheers.

Mine took well over an hour, a lot of sweat, a moderate amount of blood and plenty of air turned blue. The difficult bit is getting the two interwoven springs over the lug. Each one goes over the opposite way to the other.

I used a long metal rod to try to lever them over. They popped off no end of times and then, when I'd just about given up, they magically slid into place.

Good luck!

Aah, so that's where I was going wrong!

If you get stuck, there'll be loads of help here on Saturday week.

+1

Plus you have to split the exhaust, which on my bike was almost impossible after a few years.

But that said, I was told by mates who had after-market, non-Honda centrestands to buy a Honda centrestand and its worth it. I couldn't fit the lift handle on my bike due to the pannier brackets.

I have the original center stand on my RD07.
You need to be real strong to get the @ on its stand.
Its a total depress.
It misses the foot lever.
