3 day trip to Rwanda and back.

Post  SkidMark on Mon May 20, 2013 7:23 pm

More to follow (pics and vid hopefully) but just got back from a quick trip to Rwanda. Days ride to get there, days riding there and another day to get back.

I think you'll enjoy the following info about it:
KTM 690 Adventure - Rear puncture, really bad road shook the battery loose and shorted it blowing a fuse, bad dent in front rim, small crack in rear subframe.
Yama TTR600 - fueling problem caused fuel starvation till we worked out it was the gas cap not venting - solution was dont tighted the cap all the way. Exhaust clamp broke - fortunately the bar across the back for the hard cases caught it!
Yama Tenere (2009) - cutting out when backed off to idle and stuttering on part throttle.
Africa Twin - dodgy reg/rect cooked the battery so it was seriously bulging - solution pull of one of the generator wires so it wasn't being charged so hard.
XR650R ....errrr hmmmm - oh I had to kicked it twice one morning to get it started banana
