    Hello all, I am in the middle of converting my US-spec Transalp to an Africa Twin RD03. The frame and most parts carry over to both models. I am using all original Africa Twin parts when possible and upgrade parts elsewhere. All parts are being powder coated or refurbished. In the end...

    XRV Forum Members: Hello and happy holidays! I am writing to learn of the availability of a HID conversion kit for my 1991 Italian XRV750 RD04 with BA20D bulbs or lamps. The current bulb is stamped with HERT4 12V35/35W. Since the American websites for Amazon, ebay and Google, do not...

    Hi! So, I've made the wp48 conversion with the single 320mm disc brake, the brembo calipers and the excel rim. The whole front end from a 450 sxf ktm.

    Got my hands on a gratis Garmin Zumo 396LMT-S Motorcycle GPS, so decided to replace the TripMaster (which on mine was still fully functioning!) Anyway, I used my 3D printer to make up a bracket to mount the Garmin on the original tripmaster mounts. I have the 3D models if anyone wants to...

    Does anyone know how to remove the lower triple clamp from a set of ktm 950 forks? I have the bearings off but the steering tube is stuck solid and my finger cant't take another whack with the lump hammer. Also when I get this off how do I fit the adaptor back in? Thanks

    Coming soon: my spare pair of RD07a forks (also fit RD07, but don't have the valve for "air assistance" in the fork cap). I don't think these fit an RD04. I say "coming soon" as I have one sheared fork brace bolt to remove :hmph: You could have them right away (and cheap) if you were...

    Hi All, Managed to track down a good condition pair of ktm 950 Adv forks which has literally taken years of checking ebay now and again.

    Hi Has anyone done the 440cc conversion? If so what are the benefits and drawbacks? I am about to start an engine rebuild and wondered if it's worth doing. Thanks. Ben Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk
