yes thanks for the nice write up. The magnetic field of the ballast is what I was questioning. Mine does reset everytime the key is turned off ( no Xenon). Tried with new H4 relay, new wiring for "clean" power thinking possible drop in Voltage could be cause but no change whatsoever.
Interestingly , when outside temperature increase, the reset is more sporadic than systematic !!
yes changed all caps, verify contacts etc...Now wondering if it could be a ground??Not sure how it all relates
your text was helpful, thank you

Pegs

Guys I know that the feedback says the XR400 footpegs will fit the AT however most all of the ones I am seeing also fit the xl650 and a few other models. Does this mean I could also use pegs that fit the XL650's? I am mostly looking for something a lttie longer and wider. Cheers

Hello moto amigos,
I would appreciate any advice toward keeping my A/T fit and ready to travel. Just completed a 2 month trip down through South America some 17,000 kilometers. I live in Cuenca,Ecuador and am a 70 year old guy and rely on my mechanic to keep my bike up.. I also have a KTM 950 adventure which had several issues on the tour. The A/T was totally reliable but the two motos being the same age tells me to do the correct maintenance on the A/T to avoid problems.
I am tempted to order a new water pump and all the hoses. Does anyone have a checklist of all the parts and o rings etc to really do this well. Shortly I will sell the KTM and have a second A/T identical 2003 model and want to do the best maintenance on both. I absolutely love these Hondas and hope to ride them for a few more years.. Thanks for your advice.

Maybe here is now some xenons which are perfectly compatible with H4 bulbs, have not looked at this for some time. But from what I see on roads here in my country now, situation is pretty bad.
Another reason I don't have anymore any interest is that putting xenons on any bike/car which does not have them from factory, is illegal here and you cannot pass annual technical checks (so, owner's replacing them to conventional bulbs to that time, but you can really run in troubles if involved in accident.). I don't know about situation elsewhere in EU, maybe we are alone here which have these laws. :)

Don't confuse your Honda AT with a KTM waterpump that can be prone to leaks and failures. Honda built a bulletproof waterpump on the AT and got it right the first time.

On the other hand they never got the fuel pump right...

I'd get a facet if I were you... Speaking of which, I have some issues with this pump above ~150 - 160 kph.. Is it just me?

I have short (millisecond-long) fuel cuts above those speeds. They are noticeable and very frequent when they start, as soon as I ease off the throttle and get below 150, everything goes back to normal.. I am pretty sure it's the fuel pump since this started at my previous @ after installing the pump, which I transfered to the new @ as I had been convinced that the OEM will go bad sooner or later. Lo and behold, The new bike presented the same symptoms.. I haven't tried to fix it as I rarely go beyond those speeds but it's a bit annoying when I do want to get some air under my wings...

Bike trouble

Well I pushed my Africa twin a little to hard and need some help. Here is the ride report http://advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=773998

The motor is running great but I have zero drive to the rear wheel. No idea if it is clutch, transmission or output shaft related but wondering what you guys think and where you think I should start looking... Cheers

Nice report. I think I would have turned back after the fork protectors popped off. You had the old girl labouring pretty good trough that sticky mud and going uphill at the same time. It's highly probable your clutch is glazed from the heat and is burnt.
Get a whole kit here. 90-03 Honda XRV750 Africa Twin 750 EBC clutch friction ...
Ask for the heavy duty springs (separate) if you order from those guys. Made by EBC so p/n CSK6 (5 total) for the springs and Friction plate p/n CK1167 (7 total) if you want to buy local. Honda friction discs are a bit more exspensive FYI. Also you will need a new clutch nut (90 ft lbs tq) and side cover gasket. Also I would change the oil shortly after you install the new kit in order to give it a good flush.

I know how to fix that....slow down. I rarely go over 140 kph (87 mph).... You know....it may be the pump...or may not be...but it could be that it is just a bit shy of pressure to keep up. Make any difference when the tank is full or not? Change the fuel filter maybe?

I need a Honda part # for the following...

It's item #7 and it's called a clutch cable guide...and mines broke. My illustrated parts book shows it but for some reason won't list it's p/n. It might be because it is part of the Key Set/Switch assy...or does anybody have one lying around? I gotta keep the old girl original ya know...can't be putting haywire in there.
