    Yesterday I started on the brake re-build for my RD03. This bike had been sitting for a few years with the brake systems drained and partially disassembled. Problem: How to remove the old crusty brake pistons from the caliper while not destroying them in case they can be cleaned up and...
  2. Transalp
    Morning All, The time has come for me to part with my trusty Transalp :cry:. It's a 89 model with 73k miles on the clock and is still going strong, MOT expires 12/18. I've owned the bike for 3 years and done around 23k trouble free miles on it. The engine has a slight rattle but has done ever...

    So after a number of months sitting in spare parts in my garage, the ol' Dommie is finally back together! Cleaned her up from the frame up, stuck a Wiseco high compression piston in the motor, fresh tyres, braided front brake line, repainted a few bits such as exhausts, fork top tee, handlebars...

    Spotted on't'interweb ... “So, around your house you’ve probably got those handy liquid soap dispensers, the ones with the little push pump on the top. Well don’t throw them away when finished because that pump is absolutely perfect to bleed brakes with. Simply attach a tube to the bleed nipple...

    Recently acquired this bike and wish to upgrade the front brake hoses as the original ones are showing signs of age. Checked out Venhill (2 hose race kit): Goodridge (2 hose race kit): Wemoto (3 hose standard set up). Confused as to which I should go for. Doesn't the standard system go thro' a...

  7. Varadero
    I did a lot of research into this little project a year or two ago & purchased a brace that I thought would fit from an eBay seller from China. This has been fitted to a Std 19" front wheel & still retains the original Varadero brace/mudguard bracket. The original mudguard is also kept but...

    Hi! I have just rebuild the front brake caliper on my 96 TA.......put it back on, hooked up brake line and bleed the lines........and then after some testing and compressing the dreaded drop under the caliper!! :( One of the pistons must have warped a seal when I pushed them in. :( My question...
  10. Dominator / FMX
    How do, as I said in my first post I promised a rebuild thread, here it is :thumb: So a bit of background which will explain a couple of things, I've ridden a Honda CBF500 for about 6 years, its a great bike just a bit dull, I love trail bikes and for years I've had a passing interest in the...

  12. Africa Twin
    I'm trying to work out the best way to route the brake lines with USD forks and hoping those who have fitted USD forks can give some tips and maybe post up some photos. It'll be a twin disc setup. Trawling the internet reveals all sorts of approaches. I've lifted the pic below from...

  15. Transalp
    MACHANICAL ADVICE PLEASE: Front brake calliper was sticking so took it off to clean the pistons by pumping them out just far enough to cleaner. One piston has jammed out and wouldn’t budge so though I’d bleed it to release some pressure but that didn’t work so took the brake line off...
  16. Dominator / FMX

  19. Africa Twin
    Cleaned my brakes properly last night but due to low light conditions I did not notice that the rear brake hose had come out of it's clip and was touching the exhaust. This is the result.. Could've been much worse I guess because I had brake fluid all over the right-hand side of the rear...
