Title: New Africa Twin farkle thread
Post by: edgy on April 13, 2016, 08:10:06 am
Very keen to start personalizing my new ride and I`m waiting patiently to see who does what and the benefits thereof.
Catchy seems to have done a great job with a Wings slip on  :thumleft:
Im quite keen on the SW Motech guards for protection although not keen on adding weight!
Definitely going to swop the foot pegs to wider units as well!
Im busy looking at the various after market pipes available...who in SA does Leo Vince? They are always decent quality and reasonably priced?

Mine is still stock standard except for the Pirrelli Rally knobblies which it left the showroom in Bloem with

The only things that would add to the AT will be a bash plate, crash bars and foot pegs. Maybe a can. The first thing would be to chance the crazy foot pegs. What they we thinking in adding those I don't know.

With the AT I can at least get both feet planted on the ground. :thumleft:

What is the purpose of a "booster plug" I'm limited in knowledge of things technical. :lamer:

Post by: Jacobsroodt on May 06, 2016, 09:52:07 am
What is the purpose of a "booster plug" I'm limited in knowledge of things technical. :lamer:
New Euro 4 regulations for motorcycles dictate that engines have to run as lean as possible - at 14,7:1 air to fuel ratio (AFR) vs 13,6:1 which is the optimal stoic ratio for an engine. Most modern bikes suffer due to the consequences of lean mixtures: snatchy throttle, reduced low rpm usability, surging, pinging, motors running warmer, lethargic at lower rpm. From the new XDiavel to Yamaha's MT-7 or MT-9, BMW riders were first to realize that lean running affects engines and performance. A BoosterPlug is a plug and play device that modifies the AIT sensor to improve the AFR to optimal levels - just when you need it: acceleration, deceleration and a stronger idle and start. The beauty of the BoosterPlug is that, while it improves low rpm performance, it leaves the engine to be fuel efficient.

Ok, some pics.

1 The engine bars will fit both std and DCT
2 The crashbars can be removed within 60 sec for filter access.
3 Spotlight mounting points included
4 Stainless wide footpegs

Note. Looking at the picture the white Africa Queens might not fit on the DCT as it is quite a bit wider (even to the front where the waterpump is located.

How did Remus affect torque. I rode demo at with arrow header and silencer and had less torque than my std pipe. Couldn't wheelie in 2nd like std pipe.

the fist way is by utilizing the new, but existing 1050/1190/120 KTM CAMEL tank, and just modifying the BRACKET(s) to fit the Africa Twin exactly...

Long term - 6 - 12 months - they will likely design a SPECIFIC tank, but in all reality, it will be very close to the 1050/1190/1290 tank...

they are EXTREMELY durable - you may want to watch this video...https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8JAISp4bbyo (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8JAISp4bbyo)

we are expecting volume to be around 6L, definitely not less...

they plug & play, no pumps, etc, usually no drilling, etc.

More questions, just ask!

Cheers

new Africa Twin windscreen options now available at Flying Brick...

1. CRF 1000 L AFRICA TWIN - Sport-Screen "SP" 2016-
The MRA sports screen is a real eye-catcher with its zippy 38 cm height, the
focus clearly laid on aesthetics. Shapely, racy and dynamic, the screen
blends in perfectly with the overall visual appeal of the Africa Twin.

2. CRF 1000 L AFRICA TWIN - Touring windshield "T" 2016-
The MRA touring screen is 8 cm longer and 7.8 cm wider than the original
screen (total length: 53 cm). However, the secret lies in the shape of the
screen unlike the original and most other accessory screens, the middle
of the MRA touring screen curves in towards the driver to avoid buffeting
and turbulence at the edge of the screen, ensuring an even and smooth
airflow almost without any noise or vibration around the helmet. The MRA
screens greater width is more effective at shielding the arms and
shoulders, while the large air vent in the lower central part of the screen
ensures effective ventilation

3. CRF 1000 L AFRICA TWIN - Variotouringscreen "VT" 2016-
The MRA Vario touring screen consists of a touring screen as its main
screen with all of its benefits, plus a Vario touring screen spoiler at the
upper end that adjusts in seven steps. This allows the airflow between the
screen and VT spoiler to fan out to a greater or lesser degree, further
reducing wind pressure without causing turbulence the best conditions
for a relaxed ride, even on long tours.

Enquiries? drop us an e-mail...

And we now have an Africa Twin in-store, a Demo model, which will next week be fitted with one of the 3 screens, as well as crash bars, bash plate, rear pannier rack, orange head light protector, etc...
Cheers!

Around R7.5K

Post by: Weedkiller - Adie on July 28, 2016, 01:41:51 pm
Those are Honda OEM bars. 

Rockfox also manufacture engine protection for those bars. R 1500.00 incl RRP (see pic)

Mike also do Tops, and bottoms , bashplate and luggage racks and wider footpegs.

All directly available from Rockfox.co.za or one of the many dealers.

The only one on the Rockfox website is much bigger:
(http://rockfox.co.za/.cm4all/iproc.php/Honda%20Upper%20crashbars/Upper%20Crashbars%202%20%28Mobile%29.PNG/downsize_1280_0/Upper%20Crashbars%202%20%28Mobile%29.PNG)

The one Adie posted looks better to me, and more like the Honda OEM. The Honda one sells for R6300...

Losper the Rumbux looks impressive but I want something simpler that does not destroy the nice lines of the bike. Might regret it when I drop the bike, but lets hope thats not soon.

Going to email Rockfox for some clarity.
Title: Re: New Africa Twin farkle thread
Post by: zebra - Flying Brick on August 01, 2016, 10:18:00 am
added Pivot-style foot-pegs, R995 per set, they have 15-degrees of rear float and 15-degrees of front float, and a MUCH better platform size....

1 problem with the Africa Twin foot-pegs is not JUST that they are incredibly small, but they are super-close 'in' to the body-work of the bike, meaning a cramped cockpit.

Pictures show the 15-degree 'float' both front and rear...

Post by: Weedkiller - Adie on August 01, 2016, 11:21:35 am
A bigger issue with the AT is that it looks as if the footpeg pivot point are wider than other bikes.  Any aftermarket pegs will actually hit the shin and calf much more when maneuvering the bike whilst sitting on.

We also noticed that some pegs actually decrease the gap between the peg front and the gear/brake levers due to the width increase. (We had the same issue with our first design :-(

In the end I bought the Honda OEM crash bars as I liked the look the most. The Rumbux seemed the most comprehensive protection and the Rockfox really good value for money and inexpensive. The Honda I thought initially was way overpriced but when I downloaded the installation instructions it seemed more justified with 2 cross supports attached to the frame.

Seems currently there is only 2 crash bars to really consider. whats your opinion on the following.

Rumbux vs Rockfox:
tube size & thickness;
overall weight;
sturdiness - i.e most effective when bike is dropped;
quality of brackets;
quality of paint;
effectiveness of bash plate;
which looks better;

new at the Flying Brick Store, an anodized Handlebar plate, to fit he Africa Twins, which allows EASY fitment without cutting, of a Cigarette-socket or a Dual USB socket, as well as a RAM-mount ball, for GPS, etc, as well as pre-drilled holes for a SPOT location device.

A nice feature is that it is designed with a 'pass-thru' design for holding the cig-socket or USB socket in place, meaning to install it, you do not need to disassemble it, but simply 'pass' the cable through!
R795 at the Flying Brick Store.

And we will be carrying the plate in Blue, and Black, as well.
Kit comes with 4 spacers and 4 x M8 stainless steel bolts.

I like, a lot.

One suggestion, if I may?

I prefer the fuel - where feasible - lower down, for a lower COG a-n-d the spout/filler cap of the RotoPax VERTICAL, for ease of filling/less leaking (Rotopax dont leak, though), etc.

Something more like this, though it needs a frame, but you can still put two on one side (water + fuel).
(either INSIDE a pannier rack, but then it must clear the swing arm arc, or OUTSIDE of the pannier rack, which only adds 8.5cm to the width of soft pannier bags, etc.

Basically, silencers often weigh 6/7/8kg, so 'balancing this weight with say 5L fuel on the other (non-exhaust) side works well...

Just my 5C!

After having hard boxes on my previous bikes I just could not deal with the job of fitting and removing the ATG bag's
that I bought for my Twin, especially when on longer trips. So after much delibiration I bit the bullet and bought a set of Mosko Moto panniers.
Must say they are very well made and thought out.

The ATG bags are universal, I do however have the bike specific Rumbux pannier frames on.  :thumleft:

Had Chris`s Flying Brick sticker on the bike btw...
yes, we sell those - that is a rack SYSTEM, meaning a rack and bag combo, so the rack is not sold seperately.

It is a SW Motech rack (and SW Motech 'Dakar' bag (Bags Connection is a SW Motech product).

available from us or other reputable bike stores nationwide  :lol8:


What is the price on such a systym please??

BMC filters - money well spent!!
pricey though, R2200 (luckily for both).
Consumption has improved quite a bit and waaay more responsive from 100kmph and when cruising.
Agents don't change filters on 12000 and wait for 24000 but they look very tired around 15000.

Ok totale finale invoice was R2400. Sluit nie bmc filters in nie maar wel ekstra werk om die panels weer af te haal en dir filters te ruil. En ek het die oorspronklike quote verkeerd gehad, was R1600 ex vat. Het al die olie, break fluid, olie filter ens ingesluit.

18.8 liters, 25km/lt. If you keep below 110kmh she will give you 300km before reserve. Then about 45 - 50 thereafter, but this is only with an easy right hand. If you are going to Nam, get the 7lt (6lt in reality) collapsible tank bag from ChrisL here on the forum.

Has anyone come up with a good solution for storing your tools, pump, spare tube etc? I see plenty of space inside my left pannier rack to mount something but I feel the tool tubes are too small for everything. Any thoughts to a custom made box that is lockable and permanently mounted ? On my Transalp all the above fitted neatly under the seat! Went for a day ride on Saturday and suddenly realized that I don't have the basics with me anymore. On a long trip, I put them all in the panniers, but it takes up packing space.

Yes, we have a (the?!) solution!
A bag that attaches FIRMLY, to the INSIDE surface of the pannier rack, with a strengthened floor for taking .....tools!
Water-proof zip, rip-stop, lockable, R795 incl.
Designed around ROCKFOX pannier racks, could well fit some others...
Will TRY and find some pics of it mounted up....

I had a metal tool tube (similar to pic) fitted to my 800GS, years ago.
I have not mounted it to my AT (yet).
Centre of gravity is low and it "locked" with a torx screw, was water tight as well.

The Std. DID rims are great, mine have taken a few hard hits already and no sign of damage!
As for the bash plate, if you plan on doing more technical riding I would suggest you fit something stronger. I fitted the Rumbux crash bars which have an integrated
bash plate and it has saved the oil filter/sump a few times already. You need to keep in mind that its a heavy bike and the weight transfer when hitting a rock/stump is immense!  :ricky:

Giant Loop are nice and are way cheaper, but the mounting system of the Mosko Moto bags is way easier and secure. They can be fitted and removed in seconds, even easier than hard panniers.
Below pics shows you the unique mounting "wedge" plate that makes this system work so well!

A group of German guys went RTW (or are still on the last leg) - 2 AT's broke that mid screen cross beam due to GPS's (NUVI 550's I think) being mounted on it.

The SW is a far better design as it's mounted on the handlebar and I have not read of problems with that.

R300, basically bolts and spacers to allow the fitting of a more-aggressive knobbly-type tyre, since there is not much clearance for say mud with the original front mudguard/fender in place.
Video attached, of a USA based product, but similar/same execution of idea...., thanks

Rockfox (manufacturing) did something affordable for their test/exhibition 'Rally' bike, and used a Honda front mudguard (off a MX-style bike), and fabricated clamps that used the lower triple clamp, they may post a pic of how they did it, they have not commercialized it/fabricated any quantity, but it could be something to look at...


Cheers!

Hi Striggs,

Like Chris said, on our Rally build we put on a high fender, but this was just a once off,

i do still have the templates for the kit and maybe, just maybe i think i might still have one set of the brackets, but i will need to go and have a look for them. We moved around during shut down and everything is crazy currently. We used the front mudguard of a 2016 CRF450 bike. But it was a hassle and I was never happy with our initial design. Sorry no photos of the brackets themselves.

Maybe this hsa been posted somewhere but I don't get anything on "search".

Which GPS brackets are available and where and how do you fit them on the AT? Also what GPS do you use with a specific bracket?

The cross beam on the screen is a popular spot but they are known to crack at the weld on the bottom due to the vibrations. I use a RAM ball mount with a long bolt through the handlebar clamps. Works well with Garmin Oregon 450 or newer cradles.

here is an anodized aluminium handlebar mount that enables/allows fitting of a 12v cigarette socket or else a dual USB socket....


then IN ADDITION< it allows for the mounting of say a GPS using a RAM ball (see the hole where a RAM mount would fit), as well as an SOS type device - in this case the SPOT product we sell, but another device could be in its place...


I know that the preferred location for a GPS unit is in a more 'heads-up' position, however just putting it out there that this 4-in-1 product solves quite a lot of placement issues, easily/elegantly!

Cheers

I had the suspension changed by BlingKing with Wilbers, front and back.

Took the bike on dirt for the first time on Wednesday and must say the bike is giving me a lot of confidence, route included some wet dirt sections, rocky sections as well as sandy sections, and I rode all of these at a much higher speed, due to lots of confidence, than I would have done with the GS.

The bike feels just so stable over all road surfaces!

With the upgraded suspension, the nose dive under breaking is reduced a lot, and the bike feels much less saggy at the rear.

Overall really impressed with the AT!

I make a high fender replacement kit locally in Cape Town.  Modified my AT within the first week.  Photo of the prototype with production unis coming in a bit later this month.

So you powered the spots from the aux socket, or you used  power from the aux socket via a switch to operate the relay which was fed directly from the battery?

Riding my gf's twin while mine is in for repairs, maybe I am just not used to it but hitting the brakes hard drops the handlebars really fast and low and also forced my testes into the tank
Did the upgraded suspension change that ?

The Wilburs suspension upgrade, front and back, was in the region of R 13K. I think the compression of the forks under braking is much less with the upgraded suspension, with the bike overall just feeling much more stable and composed under all road conditions.

Pretty much as for the smaller BMW 310 GS, so around R25.5K incl, for complete front and rear wheels (no disks), no MORE than this, unless the exchange rate does an even further wobbly, possibly a bit less, actually, but being cautious, so R25.5K, or thereabouts.

Yeah, I deal with SGS, they are suppliers of ours, and we have ordered the odd set of rims (rims only, not complete wheels) from them, otherwise we MOSTLY use EXCEL rims, but we do get a fair amount of tyres from SGS.

Hallo Chris, will take a couple of pictures this weekend and post it. Here is a couple which I have:

Picture 1 - Bike in the Baviaans kloof during December 2019
Picture 2 - Rims before they were fitted

BJan how does those rims seal in the inside making them tubeliss with the spokes in the middle of the rim?

Rob, you are right, they are Motoz GPS's. I am very impressed with them, they are very quiet on tar, and they do well on dirt and tar. I had no problems going through Baviaans on them, on the contrary, they instilled a lot of confidence, even in sandy conditions.

They use a double seal where the spokes go into the rim with o-rings.

Today fitted Hepco & Becker lower engine protection bars to my ATAS :biggrin:

Also fitted the read breakfluid protection cover from RuggedRoads :biggrin:

Also fitted the AirDam protection from Ruggedroads for removing the airflow(updraft)  from the forks - Now stability on my peak of the adventure helmet at last ;D ;D

Hi Mikie

The Air Dam looks like the picture attached. Is screws on top of the tank and the idea is to block out the wind that is forced up through the fork channel. I have tested it this weekend and the bike is like something else. It is absolutely quit, no wind to mess with your helmet :biggrin:

On mine, after the decat and LV One slip on I did notice an increased willingness to rev in the higher ranges. Bike pulled a lot smoother and with less effort
For some reason, the slight snatchy throttle at open/closed movements was also gone

Thanks for that Mpandla. I am considering a new pipe but am unsure if I should go the whole hog and decat as well. I suppose if you do not decat, you can always do that at a later stage. How did it affect fuel consumption?

They cut mine in such a way that if you really wanted, you can weld the cat back in again. Bike just ran better without it
Made no difference to fuel consumption at all. It just ran better, felt more lively, breathed better etc
Only thing I would say, if you dont plan on getting a remap or RapidBike type of thing.. leave the insert/baffle in the slip on. I found that if you take that out as well, it started to bog down. It needs a bit of back pressure

I have removed the insert from the Remus, but the CAT is still in, do not know whether it is my imagination but it feels as if the bike pull stronger as well.

I agree I found it loses a bit of Torque. I actually tested it out with a standard bike letting the clutch out in 1 st gear without using accelerator on a slight incline. My bike with an arrow exhaust insert removed stalled while the other AT didnt. Put insert back and they were the same. Man but it sounds great with the insert out.

Hi Captain Zef
On my AT I had someone open up the standard exhaust and rebuild the inners. They also opened up the outlet section so it breathes better. If you look ay the pipe from the back , the two tubes are now bigger then the original ones. Sounds great, but not too loud. Also goes much better. When looking at the exhaust you cannot see where they opened the exhaust. They cut it on the existing weld and re-joined on that weld.

The guy who did this for me is actually located in the Nelspruit area. My brother who lives there (and does bike repairs and rebuilds from his small holding) arranged it for me. I can put you in contact with him to avoid me being the middle man and adding to the postage. I just took off the exhaust and sent it by postnet and he sent it back. I decatted my exhaust, but that was done by someone else here in Gauteng.

The photo I attached shows how the exit pipes have been enlarged, allowing a better flow of gas.

we retro-fit the two side plates, to older Rockfox racks, for a small fee - I think it is R350 for both side plates, and then the entire racks are re-powdercoated; done many sets, shout if you wish to know timelines; makes carrying of fuel and/or water super easy/safe, amongs other advantages...
