A strange request I know, but does anyone have any old front brake discs for an RD04 lying around?
I’m upcycling an unserviceable front wheel into a clock for my garage and I think it’ll look better with a disc on it.
Happy to pay for postage.

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...
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...
I'm the proud yet frustrated owner of a Transalp xl650v6 which I brought new in August 2007. Ever since then I've had a love hate relationship with the bike especially when it comes to maintenance and repairs.
Firstly let me admit that I am a sinner! Hailing originally from New...
Okay, it's a tough decision as I love my Transalp and she's NEVER let me down but I want an Africa Twin and as I can't afford two bikes then she has to go!
So for sale is my trusty Honda Transalp.
This has been my trusty commuter to work and has NEVER let me down. The only time I've had...
My "front-end" saga continues with the discovery of seized brake caliper pistons and brittle caliper piston seals (that have been in there since 2001)
Having never done this before.....Is this piston good for re-use? It seems to slide in and out of the bore ok, but looks a bit pitted/scored?
Decided it was time to join the forum, I've owned a '86 XL 600R that due to being laid up for a few years I've started to recommission, but as it was (and is) still off the road when the summer started I brought a '96 NX 650 Dommie that was ready to ride.
Problem is I'm spending all my spare...
I am doing a lot of off-road with my Africa (RD07) and in standing position i can't reach the rear brake pedal. So i am looking for a foot brake lever extension. Any suggestions? Do you think this do?
Hi All, so I just fitted a Givi top deflector, all good so far.
Went for a spin and certainly it works very well, but I found I was getting wind in the chin/neck area,
particularly on right hand side mainly
Out with throttle hand , and it seems to be coming in from the hand guard / brake fluid...
Having refurbished my rear brake callipers on my 1996 XR250R, I though the front callipers would be the same ..... BUT alas not.
I discovered phenolic pistons in the front callipers ? Am wondering if they’re worth re-using, as i’ve never come across phenolic pistons before and I was...
Been a while since i last posted.. moved house, got a car, started a family etc, so the rebuild of the RD07A was put on hold... until now :)
I am in need of either... some new (second hand) brake calipers (front and back) or info on where i can send my ones for a full refurb etc...

After an engine malfunction I’m now parting out my ’87 Transalp. My original rear rim rotted away (as they all do), so a few years ago a professional wheel builder (Paul Jackson, near Huddersfield) laced the oem Honda hub...
