Sorry to get you into a panic, obviously I'm talking' Africa Twin xrv750 as opposed to the CRF !dibbs wrote: ↑Fri May 17, 2019 10:05 amsoho wrote: ↑Thu May 16, 2019 9:14 pmCertain models from certain manufacturers were not tested for emissions at source (the factory) - Honda for example don't have test results, which are required by TFL for Africa Twins or Dominators, so TFL has automatically excluded them from conformity. They will however accept results from test by their appointed test centre at a cost of £175 ( pass or fail ! ). Plus an hourly charge for carb' and exhaust adjustment which may still not result in a pass !
Personally I need a couple of bikes passed as I'm currently using an '09 conforming 1200 Buell Ulysses 'round town which is a real, I mean REAL pig in traffic. It's vibrations are cracking the road surface as well as my nuts !
I'm having an (unofficial) Nox test done, luckily for NO charge this weekend, which will at least give some indication for an AT or NX650 getting through the official test .
This would be your only option too if KTM have no data available.
I have just punched in details of my 2016 Africa Twin to the TFL site and it is showing that NO charge will be due and the vehicle is compliant!!! (Phew)
Oh the irony of it all ? More that 60 years old. The Velo' kicks out more sh*t than a muck spreader & some lights would be useful too, but it's compliant !!! Hurrah !!!........ (good in traffic, but not over Westminster councils pot holes).
