  3. Dominator / FMX
    Hi all. I decided I wanted to fit a high level front mudguard to my Dommie. I selected the Polisport black item for the XR 650 thinking it would be the same. On arrival it clearly isn't the same. In fact I am wondering if I will have to change the lower steering yolk as it only has two tapped...

  5. Transalp
    I have a 2010 XL700 Transalp with about 15k on the clock and while out yesterday the dashboard ran a warning/diagnostics alarm; the digital display went blank then back to full and the rev counter went from zero to max - basically as it does when you first turn the ignition on. It did this three...
  6. I'd like to introduce myself....................
    Hello XRV Forum, I signed here the other week in the hope that I could get funds together to purchase a certain bike which had been listed but alas I was not quick enough. Undeterred I am still on the hunt and determined to get a bike after many, many years without one. I did my bike test...

    So I was driving my 11-plate Ibiza into deepest darkest Essex last night, blindly following the Sat Nav to go and collect some bike tyres I had won on eBay. As you know it had been raining all day, and I came to a road that appeared to be partially flooded. I decided it was not too deep and...

    Evenin' all, I'm clued up on the 'legalities' of flashing lights etc. but I've come across an interesting situ today and looking for some clarafication if anyone can help? I've purchased some small LED cycling lamps for a couple of the pushirons in the garage, they have various settings that...
  10. Africa Twin
    OK everyone here goes for my rebuild thread, we could be in for a bumpy ride, hopefully all will end well rather than in bankruptcy and divorce. What have we got? 1999 RD07a type 10 Sahara Blue metallic, 28,000 miles. Stolen, crashed, recovered, written off, left out in the rain to rot...
  11. Varadero
    Does anyone know if a 2008 right hand starter switch fits a 2001 model? Pictured they look identical. I need to buy one and got hold of this one on the net. I turned off the bike with the key and the starting engine continued to run and I also hit the killswitch but it kept going for another...

    What a weekend that was. Weather that most riders can only dream about. Roads that still require me to pinch myself when I ride them, to make sure I’m not hallucinating. And the company of like minded individuals to boot! The weekend started, as weekends do, on Friday morning, with the boxes...

    As the weather was decent I went for a trundle through the lanes in Glos & Wilts around the source of the Avon and Thames. By this afternoon the floods over the roads appear to have subsided, I went around Badminton where the/a source of the Avon rises the normally dry valley was well watered...

    Hi all, despite the typical British weather I decided to go for a Day trip through Berkshire's sights on the little Honda MSX125 (Grom).
