I like the Boano combined with the TA tank and modded side panels....nicely done.

Who got the worst part of the water crossing? It looks about even from the photos.

the side panel of transalp tank will be repeated later, as they are not well finished, I'd make a mold of the prototype

against the ktm was equal, both wet from head to feet

Wow, for an RD07 that bike looks as if it was left in the sea all these years..

I bet he lived close to the sea that guy, still amazing how this can happen in the few years since '96...

On the other hand it's a testament to the build quality of the @, she just goes no matter how bad you treat her..

I have another question for everyone, ever sence my rebuild I keep having problems with my water pump. A short time after I had everything back together probably only a few hundred kilos I had a leak out of the weep hole so I got that fixed with a new seal but the guy who did the work never should have opened a bike shop, actually had to spot weld the impeller onto the shaft. So I found another guy who has worked on a few Africa Twins and when I removed the pump to take it to him the weld had not held so the new shop and I fit a new seal behind the impeller and again had to weld the impeller onto the shaft then bolted everything up. No problems for maybe five hundred to a thousand kilos but the bike had to sit for a couple months while I made a trip back to the states. Now that I'm back and been spending time working on it, the weep hole has drained all of the coolant, I didn't mess with the pump there was just a big green puddle underneath her. Any suggestions, I just can't believe that the seal behind the impeller it this prone to giving out.

Any help would be great.
Thanks in advance
Keith

Only good advice I can offer is don't compromise on your engine's health and get yourself a new water pump...

A properly installed waterpump with new seals is pretty much bulletproof on an Africa Twin...just be glad you don't own a KTM in which certain models are very prone to leak.
If your mech did a weld job on the impeller chances are it's now out of balance and any slight wobble will eventually cause that seal to leak....that's my guess.
Pay mr honda or check ebay.

Nice looking led:s
What mods were required to get the indicators right? Are you using the original relay? Added any resistors, diodes etc?
