    Hello Everyone. Greetings from Denmark. New to the Forum and to the Africa Twin. Had the idea (I know it's blasphemy) to convert an XRV 750 1992 to electric motor run by batteries and solar power, to prove that EV is possible with a heavy robust Enduro machine. Bought a nice RD04 in Poland...

    OK, so I got home the other day, put bike away as normal, no problems, but next day...nothing. No lights, nada, dead. Getting in there with my multimeter, I diagnosed a knackered ignition barrel, swapped it for a new one from David Silver and the bike started first time, roared into life. Great...

    Hi all, Just asking if anybody has experience with JT’s rubber front sprocket on the XRV? We all know why many use the OE Honda front sprocket but since they cost about €30-35 and the JT cost about €15-20 it could be just as good.. Just for reference the JT sprocket is JTF296-16RB. other...

    Hi Team, Just thought I'd ask on here before I put a good hole in £300... does anyone have an oversize tank for an '02 XR400 floating about? Was after the IMS 4.0 gallon one in Natural colour, but would also be happy with a Clarke or Acerbis. Done a lot of looking around, and 98% of them are...

    Hi All, so I just fitted a Givi top deflector, all good so far. Went for a spin and certainly it works very well, but I found I was getting wind in the chin/neck area, particularly on right hand side mainly Out with throttle hand , and it seems to be coming in from the hand guard / brake fluid...

    Having refurbished my rear brake callipers on my 1996 XR250R, I though the front callipers would be the same ..... BUT alas not. I discovered phenolic pistons in the front callipers ? Am wondering if they’re worth re-using, as i’ve never come across phenolic pistons before and I was...
