  1. Dominator / FMX
    I bought a XR650R (thicker) 15T front sprocket, then I found out that on my FMX front sprocket is 14T. Which is original? 14T or 15T? BTW I found on the INTERNET that people are fitting XR650R front sprocket on XR650L to prevent it from cutting into sprocket splines. Please note that XR650L and...

    Thinking of spoiling the old machine and replacing the 21year old rear shock. The YSS units that Wemoto sell seem to get great reports when fitted to the little CRF250L, so I was thinking of trying one out. Anyone on here tried one on a 600 Alp? I have prices up a Wilbers for it as well -...

    My indicators pack up when it rains. The lights come on but don’t flash. Same whether left or right is selected. All bulbs working ok. I’m no electrician and wouldn’t know how to use a meter to trace a fault. But given that all four bulbs work, the problem occurs on both sides and the switch...

    In the box of parts that came with the '89 NX650 that I just bought, I found the metal plate/sticker that shows the VIN, tire pressure info, model year, etc. Where does this thing belong on the bike? I want to glue it back on, but I can't find it on parts diagrams.

    New member question - Hello recently bought a 2008 transalp 650 which I am enjoying riding much more than the GS1100 I just got rid of (too heavy !) Anyway, wonder if someone can help identify the pannier rack that my bike has fitted from the attached photo. The bike did not come with panniers...

    I would like to replace my coolant hoses on my RD03. Honda parts are NLA. I was reviewing threads about the Samco or other aftermarket hoses and found threads that stated that some hoses were incorrectly sized. Those hose kits are pretty dear. Can't see paying that much for parts that are...

    So I bought a well used ‘89 XRV650 which I am rebuilding. The weels are corroded and I need to replace them. I’d like to keep the bike as original as possible so I’m looking to source original DID rims. I allready found a nice used rear wheel and now I’m searching for a front wheel rim (I will...
  13. Helmets
    I'm currently wearing a Shoei Neotec Mk1. The visor leaks a fair bit when it rains. The Pinlock insert seems to shrink and fit poorly, therefore it mists up. The leaking visor causes the misting to accelerate. I contacted Pinlock and they sent me a new insert. It also shrunk over time and now...

  15. I'd like to introduce myself....................
    Hi everybody, I am new to this forum. Just bought an XRV750rd07a full stock that I am planning to rebuild to a lighter and more offroad capable travel bike. One of the ideas is to install Supersprox sprocket and 520 pitch chain to reduce weight. Anyone any advice or experience having done this.
  16. Varadero
    Does anyone know the length of the original shock of a mk2 abs varadero? I would like to compare it with the bitubo shoch that it is fitted to my bike at the moment.

    Hi, Please would somebody tell me if the four silver fixings you can see that hold the wind shield to the headlamp cowl are the correct ones for a 1999 XL600V? Please see pictures. They came with the bike when I bought it new but seem too big and shiny? Thanks PC

  20. XR
    I'm trying to return my XR400 to standard specs. As it seems that many XR owners remove these items, I'm hoping that someone has a diffuser and snorkel for sale! If you do, please send me a message. Thanks.
