  1. Africa Twin
    Looking to replace all the fuel lines on my RD03 as a couple more leaking a bit nowadays. Rugged roads has 4or5 sizes. What is most common I would need? I plan on buying some bulk lengths. They have 4.5, 5.5, 7.3 and 8mm ID. Mine are so old going to be hard to determine sizes. I know I have used...

    Hey guys, I am from Sydney Australia, And own a 1982 Suzuki Katana 7/11. Noticed you have fork extensions. Am trying to fit 07 Bandit 1250 forks to my spare Kat and maybe those fork extensions might be a fit. Can you tell me what size they are and the thread pitch as well. My forks are 43mm...

    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...

    I would like to customise my FX650 and wonder if anyone has fitted alloy 3 spoke wheels [like those on a Suzuki GS500] to their Honda. If this is a doable how complex is it or is there an easy way of fitting wheels from another bike which need little modification. Any photos would be helpful.

    Hello This post is for those who bought their RD07/07A new from dealers back then when they were still in production. :rolleyes: I'm curious about original add-on parts from Honda: were there any? Crash bars, luggage racks, anything else? Have You ever seen any Honda catalogues with original...
  9. Africa Twin
    Just dropped my AT today at slow rolling speed and thanks to those Rugged Road crash bars any serious damage was prevented. But the right one took a substantial hit and it absorbed all the force which resulted in it being slightly bent inwards. Is it possible to bend it back? I will post some...

    My 700 has always run a bit hot. I am thinking about swapping those 2 tiny radiators for a single large one. My question is would it be a simple swap or is there anything there to stop me doing it, some technical reason? I guess radiators are pretty simple but would like to hear from someone who...

    For those amongst you that like to have a tinker in the workshop over the cold winter months, how about making a lamp like this one I found on the interweb. As soon as I get a bit of spare cash, I think I will make a pair of them for myself and jnr as I have some old pistons lying around.;););)...

    After many years I've decided to change bike away from the Honda stable. I would like to thank all those who contributed or commented on any of my posts. You've been a really helpful bunch of people. FYI i've just bought a new 2017 VStrom 650, not the xt version. Reallly nice bike, I'll miss...

    Has anyone gone down to a single disc on their rd04 using standard lever and master cylinder a braided hose and single standard caliper? Apart from the impact on braking will this work?

    The picture of the Excel wheels (off RuggedRoads' website) shows the dimples are undrilled. Maybe it is a generic image. Those who bought their Excel wheels from them, did they come pre-drilled or not? Also, if they comre pre-drilled, was it for the stock nipples of for oversized nipples for...

    Just brought a 1985 CX650 seemingly a quite uncommon version of the CX500 family, only made a few 1000s worldwide for a year or so. Many of those I ride with have BMW r600/750/800 so had to get something different and found this in Cardiff when I was looking for something quite different on the...
