  1. Who's liable for my tools destroyed in fire at workplace ?

    Chatter
    I've got a tricky question. I was hoping someone here would have some experience or insight. I went for a job at a workshop. The boss was keen to hire me but he said he'd put me on a trial for a few weeks to see how I got on. He told me to bring in my tools and do a couple of days a week in the...
  2. So I fitted a new regulator.......

    Transalp

  4. CRF1000L rear shock on XRV750 RD07

    Africa Twin
    Hi, did anyone try the rear shock of the CRF1000 on an RD07. First , will it fit dimensionally and how does it behave.

  6. Rear shock RD04: Rebuild or cheap aftermarket?

    Africa Twin
    The rear shock on my RD04 is really harsh at holes and bumps, and it goes thru the whole bike. Its feels like the compression damping is too hard. I have tried to adjust it, but I can’t feel any difference. I have 30 mm free sag, and 70 mm rider sag, so the spring should be ok. (from the...

    Can someone explain to me why the price of a Honda C90 on ebay on most cases seems to be a lot more than a Dominator?

    Africa Twin
    Hi all, On one of my parts hoarding trips I acquired an RD07 frame. Never needed a frame, but can't resist hoarding XRV parts. It needs blasted and powder-coated, but it seems in a pretty good overall shape. It came from a barn full of bike bits collected over years by a fellow parts hoarder...
