    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...

    Hey all After about 3 years, I'm about to kick off the build of my SLR650 scrambler/tracker. I'm looking to get a 17" front wheel & am looking at fitting a 120/70/17 up front with 150/70/17 rear Continental TKC80's. Now after some research, I'm not sure if these will fit on the current wheel...

    I'm looking for some help on the mounting of the chain slider. I've been working on a restoration and it has been some time since I've been at it due to health reasons. When I went to put the slider on, the mounting point does not seem to be right. I'm wondering if one of the points has been...

    For those that like that kind of thing, the current issue of Bike magazine has a feature on a French-made custom from a Dommie donor bike. July 2019 edition, page 20. The engine, bash plate and front half of the frame look familiar, but that’s about all! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Really hoping one of you knowledgeable folk on here can help as I'm having issues with the bike popping on tickover (tickover problems seem common for the nx650 by the looks of things). Sometimes the revs will hang high after small throttle input and other times the revs will drop and die but on...

    My nx650 RD02 (1989) is in need of a new shock. The current shock is an old Hagon that is at least 20 years old fitted by the previous owner and I doubt very much it is serviceable by the look of it. Im on a tight budget (meaning I don’t want to spend a fortune) but need to replace it...
  9. Transalp Technical Specs
    Hi. My current back tire on my transalp 600v 1998 (Back: 120/90-17 m/c 64s) is more then dead, but i have some new tires sitting on my Africa twin 650 1988, (my father told me they are 140/80 R17, no idea how the naming system works.) I guess if they fit, it would be a slimmer tire, but would it...

    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. Now I've got a problem that I didn´t think of: I've got an analog odomoter and a digital pick up (magnetic) wheel and spindle. There's no space...

    Has any one got a pilot jet for a carb fitted to a RD02 to hand, or happen to know the length? Just stripping the carb and the current pilot jet that was fitted is 24mm in long, however the refurb kit for the carb came with one that was 28mm long. Any clues on which one is correct? The 24mm...

    My current sprocket setup is -1 front and +3 in the rear. I like this, but I'd like to get better mileage on the road and I want an OEM 16T front for reduced wear on the shaft. Thinking of changing my chain and go to just +1 in the rear or should I go with the stock 46 tooth rear sprocket?

    Hi all, I'm mid rebuild of my RD07a and I need to buy new front brake disks. My current disks have huge gouges/grooves in them from the prev owner. I was hoping to buy OEM ones 2nd hand. Does anyone have any spare or have a link to a pair? If not I was going to buy these Brembo ones from...

    After having a 2002 carb'd Vara, I bought one of the last Varaderos in 2014 (manufactured 2011) and now it has done 27,400 mainly on long trips around Europe. I was just wondering how long the CCTs are good for? I don't hear any nasty rattles or anything so I'm just wondering whether it's a good...

    Hi Managed to get a few hours in the man cave before the big day and had issues fitting the OEM airbox on my RD07A. As noted by others the connecting rubbers from airbox to carb inlets can shorten with heat and fuel. The result is they are now too short :( These are the rubbers from another...
