    Hi, did anyone try the rear shock of the CRF1000 on an RD07. First , will it fit dimensionally and how does it behave. I find the CRF rear suspension more comfortable and want to fit the shock on my RD07a. The CRF shock can be found relatively cheap as second hand, and saves the investment in an...

    If anyone is interested in purchasing a Fuel exhaust for their xrv750 then pm me. If there is enough interest then Fuel Exhausts will make a batch for us, they are not going to be releasing as an 'off the shelf' product so let me know. I personally had one on my Transalp and it was a good...

    I finally ordered and recieved my new Arrow PD exhaust. Looking forward to getting it installed but Curious about what I call exhaust tape that is very similar to putty sort of. Does anyone use it over here? I notice a lot of folks using exhaust paste but that looks to be a messy setup. Any...

    I've found a nice NX250, 1988 near me. Tempting even with the tiny wheels (16 inch). Is there a forum where convos about it might be found? It's also sold worldwide as the AX-1 and listed occasionally in the US as a Dominator... and I'm in the US. Thanks for any leads... t

  15. Africa Twin
    I had passed on a few bikes and finally came acroos this 97 AT. It will do for now while I look for my RD04. I have an RD03 back in the states already so figured the rd04 will be good to have also. In the meantime 8 months w/o a bike and just a scooter was enough

    Hi all i was wondering if the 2 above frames are the same.... I have the chance to get my hands on a complete and fully functional 2004 TA with a damaged frame(statutory write-off) and i have a frame from a 87 XL600V. I originally wanted to transplant my RDO7 Africa twin into the XL frame but...

    Hi everybody! After finally getting the right brake pads for my rear caliper I have since "finished" my scrambler in working order. However I still need to fit some gauges and I'd like to take a look at the pin-out or schematics for the original dash before tackling this job :) I would greatly...

    I sweared over and over last night when I reinstalled the RD07's collector. I tried fitting them using the copper rings and it was impossible. The collector would always be crooked. I tried half a dozen ways without success... I finally decided to reinstall it without the crush copper rings...

    Hi Does anybody have some photos of there rd04 with gold excel wheels? I'm finally getting round to finishing my 1990 rd04 and I'm struggling to decide if to go black or gold. I wanted gold but the excels are quite a different gold to the originals and black look really nice and more modern...

I've got one finally. The "dealer" said it was a 2000. I was highly skeptical, especially when I pulled...
