    Need some help getting my element seal in my airbox. When I got the bike,it had a K&N so I've had to buy the new parts. The fiche is helpful, but when I went to install, it all became a bit of a puzzle getting the rubber seal in and then installing the element filter..... Can anyone tell me...

    It'd be interesting to hear different folk's views . . . Are you happy with the stock configuration or are you searching for the perfect setup? Have you done Dave's carb mods? K&N vs Honda air filter? Anyone installed a dynojet kit? Airbox mods? After market pipe? pumper carb? cheers Philippo

    Hi all, Last year I bought a 1990 RD04 but it has been running too rich. Removed the carbs to clean them out and have a closer look and found the previous owner put in 2x 130 main jets. Stock jets are 118 and 122. Needle is set 3th notch from the top. The jets are too large but what size should...

    Hi, As you might have read I am in the process fitting a 17” front wheel to the bike & I will be losing around 1” in height up front, so I have also been looking into increasing the length of the forks to compensate. I looked into screw in fork extenders a while ago and after reading about...

    So I own a beautiful 1993 XRV750P. Here she is last summer: This model has the incandescent reflectors which I have modded with H4 bulbs, and to be quite honest the light output leaves quite a lot to be desired. The problem lies in the bulb configuration -- the bulb is either too long or...

    When does journalistic licence become total b*ll*cks? The reason I ask is that I came across some total nonsense when doing some Googling about for my AT camshaft details thread*. I was actually looking to see if I could find a power/torque curve for the Honda VT750 Shadow as it shares a...

    I had no idea what to expect from the Crosstourer. But no matter what I wrote about it, I knew what I could expect from comments on xrv.org.uk: it’s not a new Africa Twin; Honda should make a new Africa Twin. Well, the Crosstourer is not the new Africa Twin. Its seat is comfortable, for a start...

    thought i would just add a few picks of what i did luggage wise and lessons if learnt on my last coast to coast trip. the trip itself was not seriously hard-core, but dealing with weight solo on and especially ofroad is always a challenge and of coarse a serious handicap. all im busy doing is...
