  1. 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.

  8. Searching for a 2001 seat or seat pan

    Hi, I posted this in for sale/wanted too. Does anybody have an old seat or seat pan? I have a bike stored in Ireland, but I'm in California, it's impossible to find any parts newer than '89 over here and I want to have a nice newly covered (comfortable!) seat for this summer. Thanks!
  9. Hard seat

    Used to have a 1999 reg XL1000v a few years ago, and don't remember the seat being anywhere near as uncomfortable as it is on my XL1000va-5.

  13. Baby Vara?

    I saw one yesterday and I thought it looked really neat with its travel boxes and all. Anyone have any comment on these bikes? They seem ideal with all these mental fuel prices. And big enough to be comfortable on a long trip.... The only bad thing I read was that the engine is "quite spunky"...
