    I was adjusting the headlight on my 125 varadero (XL125V 2005) and the adjuster screw has wound out of the internal nut. Is the headlight a sealed unit? if i take it off will i be able to open it up and re-attach the spring and screw. At the moment the headlight is shining at my front mudguard...

    How the heck do you get a C spanner onto the shock locknut and adjuster nut without cutting the back end off the bike? Its got me stumped. TIA.

    Hi all, I want to bring the clutch lever closer to the grip on my new AT as it's just a tad too far, but there is no 'disc' to turn like the break lever - Anyone know how I do this? Bit reluctant to fiddle with the free play adjuster, dont know if that actually will bring the lever forward a...

    Hi there Has nyone fitted one of the Wilbers shocks with external preload adjuster to RD07A? I'm trying to choose the proper place for external preload adjuster and just can't get the idea of what was the intended place to fit the adjuster's mounting plate which came with the shock. It has two...

    Can anyone tell me what C spanner I need to get for my genuine rear shock please. I asked at Honda last week and they produced a few different versions. They didn't have one listed in the tool kit section, so I guess the bike doesn't come with one. The locking ring and adjuster ring look...

    I've read a lot about firming up the transalp front end with spacers and heavier fork oil etc. but this doesn't allow much adjustability. I saw these on Ebay 2000 HONDA TRANSALP XL650V BILLET PRELOAD FORK CAP ADJUSTERS | eBay Has anyone tried these or know much about them? Kmac

    Is there any adjustments that can be made on the rear shock on my RD07a,i don't need to make any at the moment but may do when I carry a pillion.I can't see any adjuster on the reservoir cylinder only the lockrings on the main spring on the shock itself,am I missing something? :confused:

  17. Varadero
    I am off to Ireland with my lad at the weekend on the vara, and after a wee shakedown ride to check all seemed fine a couple of days ago, I wanted to have a fiddle with the preload as well as having raised the tyre pressures to 36/46 psi. But the screw is solid, I know it was working soon after...

    Trying to find a site to mount the preload adjuster on my Hagon shock. Just where in the name of all that's Holy are you supposed to mount the bl**dy thing?! The stainless oil hose is very, very stiff and doesn't like tight bend radii and I'm getting very frustrated trying to find a site for...

    Hi guys, I mounted a Ohlins shocker to my RD04, it was a b*tch to install but I finally managed to do it, I think. I just want to double check if I did it the right way... I mounted the reservoir in the same place as the old one, and the steel braided line mount bolt ath the shock is pointing...
