Bike is in for her 12k service and I'm fitting new BMC filters.

Next farkle:  Suspension upgrade.  But that's gotta wait till cashflow resembles something other than a river of blood.   :lamer:

Sonder die filters het hulle my R1400 odd gequote.  Filters het ek by Guts 'n Gas gekoop (R2600 vir die stel) en laat aflewer by die stealers.  Ek moet nog die bike gaan optel so sal dan die finale bedrag weet.

I have a few Kappa screens for the Honda CRF1000L.The clear Sport Touring screen is 14,5 cm higher than the original and replaces the standard screen.
BoosterPlug, LED Spots, Tool Tubes, RustStop, Kappa Screens, Top boxes, Tank Bags, ATG Gear - whatever works for me.

The Kappa Airstream screen is a two piece clear screen. The top part is a sliding wind-screen and transparent. The AIRSTREAM's maximum height is 63,5 cm (12 cm of extension) width 35 cm. This screen is 18 cm higher than the original and is simply be mounted instead of the original screen.

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.

Nie te bad nie dink ek.

What is the fuel of the Africa Twin?

Is it that low that everyone is fitting fuel packs? Our is it just a case of bike pimping gone wild?

What kind of mileage per liter do these bikes return?

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.

Anyone know if Alpina Rims are sold in SA?

>https://www.alpinaraggi.it/en/product/honda-crf1000l-africa-twin-since-2016/

Thanks.

as far as I know, NOT:
suggest you ring GSTry (Geoff), who may be able to give you more help...
I had a look at Alpina at EICMA 2015 - very nice product, seemed near-unaffordable (then) with our week rand, I know they do some nice TUBELESS rims!
Cheers

Thanks Chris, subsequently I have found that SGS Motorsports in Durban are importers of Alpina Rims ... plenty expensive they are too.

Party hou nie van die looks nie, maar die airstream is eintlik 'n fantastiese screen omdat jy hom tot heel onder kan stel wanneer jy tegniese terrein ry - om voor jou te sien. Op spoed kan mens hom stel om presies by jou behoeftes te pas. Die ouens wat met hom ry verkies niks anders nie.

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....

Thanks,  looks like you are about to take  some more of my money!!  Anything in metal that can be permanently mounted so as not to get stollen?

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.
