Just a little pre-winter inspiration for your upcoming projects. Took my AT RD04 - 1990 calipers a part this summer and gave Them new life. Fairly straight forward. Be carefull with the bleed nipples and the pin cover screw. Can be seriously stuck. WD40 and correct size of screw driver is key.
I am asking about front brake pads for XRV 650... For touring, off road use and city riding do you recommend organic brake pads or sintered? I like to ride at fast speeds [as fast as a 650 can go]..Thank you in advance..:p
was looking for rear pads for my bike where i found this note on EBC ,linked Brake System. Fit All Three Sets At Pad Change
Do i really need to change the 3 of them same time ? this is bit expensive for me due to shipping.
Dunno if anyone saw this on ebay, 2001 HONDA XL 1000V VARADERO BLUE | eBay
Was the kind of bike I was looking at buying, but these parts prices seem absolutely staggering - is there some ludicrously-priced labour included as well, you reckon? At least the battery was cheap ;)
Ive just fitted these to the transalp 700 and after 150 miles i have to say they are very good,they are better than the nissin honda pads that were in which still had 3mm left,they cost £42 for the two sets for the front brakes,i will be replaceing the rear with sbs pads and also my daytona 675...
I am thinking of parting company with my Varadero.

Morocco has been on the list for years, but this autumn my usual prevarication was outwitted by a mate who booked the ferry, bought Chris Scotts excellent Morocco book, and told me I was going...

1999 Honda Africa Twin RD07A - Valuation Appraisal?
Hi lads, I’m considering selling my bike having spent six months hunting the UK and Ireland for a well kept original AT and got this one locally just last year. I sold my Pan Euro (Lovely but too heavy for me) at start of the summer but a...
Just bought a new clutch cable for my 650 ta v6.
It does not have the bent bit of tubing on it.
Is this normal for replacement clutch cables?
This is the new one, i trust you all know what the original looks like.
Recently purchased a 95 transalp 600 to give me a break from my daily drive Vivaro van. I didn't want to spend a great deal, just something cheap, reliable and could be used all round, all weather. When it showed up for sale on gumtree locally, I took the plunge.
£600 bought me a...
I have a 2008 Transalp 700 and most of my riding is in and around London including my daily commute. I got my brake pads replaced both front and rear about 7,000 miles ago. My rear brake pad seems to have run out and is squealing under use. The front one is absolutely fine.
I know there's mixed opinion about chopping up 'perfectly good' bikes, and, in the process wrecking their real world usefulness. But, each to their own, I've had a lot of fun fettling this bike. Thought I'd share the result . . .
This bike was a standard '99 NX650 with tatty bodywork and a few...
