From all the descriptions, the other thing I can think of are the ignition coils themselves, or the spark plugs cables...
Africa Twin,
Thanks for the leads. I'm in Tokyo until the weekend but on return I hope to get started with the suggestions list I've received here. Your symptoms sound the same.

selling with regret :(

For sale is an unfunished Africa Twin XRV650 Marathon Replica (in other words, a replica of the factory marathon bikes that ran the dakar from 1988 till 1990).

The bike has had a complete stripdown, and the frame has had a sandblast and new powdercoating. Many parts have been changed, using Honda spares or very good quality parts, this is just a short list of what has been done:
- wilbers fully adjustable rear shock and new bearings and bushes in prolink - wilbers front springs, oil and new seals
- new fuel pump and fuel pomp relay
- new set of CDIs
- new front wheel
- new tyres (TKC80) and tubes
- new EBC disks and pads
- complete brake master cilinder and caliper overhaul
- HEL brake lines
- new marving silincer
- new filters, spark plugs, oil and coolant
- new chain and sprocket set
- new set of handle bars
- new EBC clutch set

Why is it a marathon?
- front 42L tank
- rear 17L tank (side covers are included)

What needs to be done?

- saddle made to fit
- side stand made to fit

The bike is fully running. The carbs have been cleaned, inlet manifold changed and everything synchronised.
The bike has been build over the past 4 years, but I simply don't have the time to finish the project. I am selling it with regret, but letting a bike gathering dust in the shed is a waste.

I am open to offers, as long as they are reasonable and I prefer talking this over in front off the bike. Viewing is more than welcome. The bike is located near Brussels.

I just recently bought an RD04 ; black & red from Austria, it has only 47 k.

I bought it because I want to build a rally replica of some sort during this winter.

Any similar projects running or have been done ? Any photos or ideas?

I want to do following:

- raise it for a few cm
- rally fairing
- new color scheme + stickers
- knobby tyres
- perhaps some small decals and add-ons

Sorry if I opend this topic again, but I don't want to view all 800 something posts on this tread

Thanks to all

I'll send you the PDF I have when I get home today. I think it's the Clymer one that has all AT and TA except for RD03.

Cool! Thanks!

Mixed feelings regarding the position of lights thoe. Horizontal dual lights look much better than vertical.

Would have to customise it for AT standard dual lights. OR, just tear apart the original AT fairing and add front fiberglass panel. Would probbably be cheaper also.

Anyone knows how to raise the thing using standard suspension and front forks?
