Re: Ops Life threatening problem with my ATAS

My thinking, is maybe it is just the Adventure Sport version, as everyone that has contacted me has one of those. The tank is different to the standard Africa Twin as it is larger, so maybe they use a different process in those tanks.....

Re: Ops Life threatening problem with my ATAS

No problem Steve. Not very happy with being almost killed by a new bike. So big update from Dealer. This is a warranty job, costing Honda £2,500. The bike needs new fuel pump, new injectors, all new gaskets basically anything to do with fuel. Plus a new tank, I reminded them that it was an anniversa...

Re: Ops Life threatening problem with my ATAS

Bike has never been off road and I use UK petrol stations, so unless they add flakes and grit and sand to their petrol in petrol stations, I reckon it has always been in there. I also live in Kent, The other blokes, who I don't know live in Belgium and Scotland.... No way, went in when filling up wi...

Re: Ops Life threatening problem with my ATAS

My bike is June 2018 ...
