Take a look at FAMSA - they have a seperate baseplate that remains on the bike, and you just unzip the bag and take it with you. Nice detail is a cutout for the fuel filler, so you don't have to take it all off when filling up

They do a either a Tankbag or Tankset specifically for the Africa Twin rather than a generic one - and it's strapped, not magnetic.





Famsa are the manufacturers of the KTM tankbags (just rebranded)

The best Tankbag on the market are from ENDURISTAN. http://www.enduristan.com/en/welcome-to-enduristan.html
They are totally waterproof without having to put any cover over it. Easy expandable and they sit bomb proof on your tank. Everyone I know of that owns one is very satisfied. The best I ever bought.

I am in the South of France on vacation, and I am surprised at the number of the locals in my town (Aubagne) that use these bikes for their daily commute. I haven't been back here in 10 years, and did not expect to see so many of them. I never see these bikes back home in NJ so I had to stop and take a picture everytime I saw one parked.

Africa twin font?

Hey Guys! Some really cool bikes in this thread! I got myself an Africa Twin -1999 earlier this summer and so far I love it! Here in Sweden you can already feel the autum and winter coming, so I only have about 1-2 months left before I will let it hibernate for a few months.

During this time I have a few projects I wanna sort out! First of all I'm creating a dashboard for it now so that I get a good place to mount the new 12v and so on. I've seen a few of these before so I've looked around and created my own one. When it's all finished I will publish the sketchup file so that anyone can create one if they want to.

Anyway, I wanna put in a nice "Africa Twin" logo, but I can't really find what font they are using for it. Anyone have any idea?

Well there is a few scratches here and there, but nothing that shouldn't be on an AT! As my dad said - If there isn't any marks on it, then there is someone haven't been taking care of it in a proper way ;)

Anton has done a great job with his silicone hoses. I'm trying to find information to do a similar job with my RD04.
Located in Canada makes parts replacement a bit of a pain and I have not been able to source any rad hose kits for the AT yet. I would appreciate any input anyone has..
I am doing a ground up restoration and have not been taking pics as yet. The bike is 20 years old and has sat in storage (not my fault) for quite a few years.
I am also looking for an original sparkplug socket if anyone happens to have a spare in their back pocket....

Slicone hose kit for AT
A source for reinforced silicone hoses similar to Anton 88
1 slightly and gently used OEM sparkplug socket to fit the AT head......


Thanks in advance

Hi all,
Been reading this thread for quite a while and earlier this summer ended up buying a one owner RD04 in excellent condition, bad thing I didn't get to keep it that long as my father tested it and wouldn't let go of it (he used to own a Transalp before but says it's night and day experience..) so he took over it and I continued searching for another one, ended up buying a black RD07A with only 11000km on the clock, in mint condition. Will add a crashbar, headlight protector, nothing major.

First Africa, now my fathers:



My second:

Very nice. Through the natural run of nature the RD04 should eventually come back to you so look after it for your Dad. The RD07A is a great bike. Best of luck with it.

Lots on ebay, though I didn't see the reinforced kind. I doubt you'll find an AT kit.

You might take a look at Pegasusautoracing.com , or Google for it. Good stuff there, but expensive.
