  1. Africa Twin
    Hi everybody, I am rebuilding front brakes and I need to change two out of four pistons, but I have trouble finding them in online shops where I usually get my stuff (german and austrian shops). Some have it for older models, some say that it is the same piston for older and newer models (I...

    Hi guys. I recently bought my first AT RD07. It`s an import from Austria, and I`ve learned that those models are restricted. The restriction in the inlet has been replaced with normal full flow inlet rubber manifolds/isulators by PO. But what about the camshafts they put in the Austrian models...
  3. What's it worth?
    I mistakenly bought a tank, it was described as fitting an XT600 Yam, it doesn't - Its an Acerbis Tank and has 1835 stamped underneath, 18L twin taps, and it was described as fitting as a Honda XL600 - though I'm not sure what year, I think 88 ish. Here's a pic - the one I have is in black - and...

    Hola. I hope this isn't too much of a newbie question but... I had a bit of a weird rattle coming from the front end whilst braking on cobble and, on checking, one of my caliper bolts (on my RD04) has gone AWOL So, my first question - It's these things right? OEM Honda Flange Bolt 8X40...

    I just got back from Germany visiting a mate who has had his Triumph T120 Tiger TR6 650 parked in his spare room for 20 yrs. He bought the bike in the USA and was promised it had a genuine 20000 miles on it..........They lied. He told me it was running fine the last time he rode it and it only...

    Gday you adventurous lot. Picking up a 90 RD04 in 2 days. :p Planning on a total rebuild since its done approx. 160,000 kms and looking a bit shabby. Imported from Austria about 8 years ago I think. Very impressed with what I have seen in the forum so far. I have been riding for most of my...

    Well the secondhand silencer that I bought from Austria has arrived and certainly doesn't look any worse than the photos made it look in the advert. Lets hope it fits........

  13. Africa Twin
    So here comes the first of my many newb questions :) Oh, and it's a Austrian '91 AT - which, I think, makes it an RD04? Anyhoo, it came with a Givi Maxi top box and, as I hate, top boxes with a loathing and a passion, I removed it, along with the AT baseplate only to find a rather sad, and...
  14. Africa Twin
    Hello gents, Rebuilding the rear brake on my RD03 and noticed that I am missing two parts from the schematic. The thing is, I'm not sure if these parts are absolutely needed. They are parts number 10 and 11: They snap to the back of the brake pads. I always assumed that they were there to...

    Forum Members, Hello. I recently acquired an RD04 and would like to learn if Honda provided an emissions sticker or tag on the motorcycle. I've referenced the Honda XRV750L Service Manual book, Haynes Service and Repair Manual and pulled off the side covers and was unable to locate an...
