  1. Varadero
    I bought one of the last Varas in 2014, made in 2011 I believe. I’ve done three long European rides (3K to 4K miles) and it’s been brilliant. It’s now done nearly 41K miles and in preparation for another long ride around Europe I’m thinking I should change the rear shock. Just looking at Haynes...

    Hi, I'm in the process of rebuilding both front and rear wheels on my 1998 RD08, problem is I've only got the 88-89 manual. According to this manual the front wheel offset is given as 22.25mm from the disk to the rim, this is probably ok for my '98 as nothing much changed from the RD02 model on...
  3. Mechanical Advice
    I am faced by an issue where my XRV 750 RD07 is losing power when it reaches 6000rpm. It seems to be a fuel deprivation. Fuel tank has been checked for any impurities. Carburators have been cleaned and 1 diaphragm changed. No coil wires. Any suggestions please?

    Hi. I have had my 99' TA 600 for a while now, and I want to make my bike a little less soft, and also try to lift the rear a bit. Is this possible just by modifying the original parts? Has anyone done this before? In the front I added a few mm. of fork-oil, and changed the viscosity. That...
  5. For Sale / Wanted
    These hein gericke performance shell trousers with vents have been brilliant and have only changed after getting some rukka stuff. Size wise I was a 40 and they fit just right but they will go up or down a bit on that. They are fully waterproof and with liners out and vents open brilliant in...
  6. Transalp
    Thinking of buying a 600TA and have seen this one https://www.gumtree.com/p/cars-vans-motorbikes/honda-transalp-600-rally-touring/1294269216 The owner has sent me a photo of the frame number (looks exactly how it should) to check with hpi. However the bike is registered as blue, when I would...
  7. Africa Twin
    On my last AT I had a volt meter that I bought from ebay that was basically a bulb in a rubber shroud that changed colour depending on the voltage. it was the perfect size to fill the space in the dash box that houses the lights for oil, neutral, highbeam, and indicaters. I have spent the...
  8. Africa Twin
    Just applying for a V5 and SORN on the RD03 as I didn't get one with the bike, checked online with the DVLA and its registered as a Honda Unknown Multi-Coloured. As they are all imported do any have the right model on the V5?, or is it because mines from Japan? Any idea if I can get this...

  11. Africa Twin
    I just received my new tires and figure I will change tubes as well and keep old ones as spares. Everything I have owned for years has been tubeless except my RD03 which came with new tires/wheels and my KLR650 which I changed eons ago. Want Heavy duty but not sure which brands are best. Any...
  12. Transalp
    Just changed both sprockets today but the front one (+1 tooth) is slacker on the shaft that the one i took off. As anyone will know who has changed a sprocket the bracket with two bolts to retain the sprocket has to align in the gap on the spline as they do not line up otherwise. Anyone suffered...
  13. XL
    Hi guys, New to the forum and hoping it will be very useful. I have a 1978 XL250 with an electrical issue i cant work out. My neutral light and horn will only work when the brake light is on. Also the back light isnt working at all. I have changed the rear bulb and checked the inline fuse...

    Hi Guys. I've a '95 RD08 with an RD02E engine and reading 36000 kms, 6 months ago I bought my bike and changed the oil putting in 20/50. Within a few weeks the gearchange became poor refusing to go into 4th and 5th until the bike had warmed after a few miles, I've subsequently put 15/40 then...

    Having recently changed bikes, I have a couple of items for an xl700 for sale;- The Honda lowered seat - approx 20mm lower than standard and the official Honda xl700 full workshop manual. Both are in very good condition. £45 for the seat £15 for the manual. Items can be collected from Leigh on...
  16. XR
    Hello Has anyone changed their indicators to LED ones and what is the relay that will work properly ie proper 'flash' rate ...I notice it's a 3P on the XR L6 and that there are only 2 pins wired in ones I've seen on ebay? I'm not very clever with electrics,but is this the kind of thing I should...
  17. Varadero
    Do I need to re-jet the Varadero if I changed the original slipons by an aftermarket ones? thanks
  18. Dominator / FMX
    My 2001 Dommie is really hard to start and dies really easy when idling. Almost like it misfires every 10th time or something like that. Oil-level is good, spark plug changed last year to an Iridium spark plug from NGK and the batteri is fully charged. I can't really figure out what could cause...
  19. Dominator / FMX
    So I went to see just how deep the rabbit hole goes and completely tore my dommie apart for a restoration. I'm currently rebuilding it, and I've changed the pads on the rear, but there is only a pin to secure them on one end, which means that the pads won't stay in the caliper! What am I...
  20. Dominator / FMX
    Is there any reason a CDI from and SLR wouldn't run in an FX650? You'd need to chop the FX CDI plug from the loom and wire in the SLR CDI plug. Then the ignition rotor would need to be changed (the FX on has more pips on it). I'm sure the TPS is the same on both bikes. The only casualty I think...
