    Just in case anyone else in the UK needs one of these parts and does not want to pay the stupid price of £32 :disgust: ........ (these are only $15 in the states) I just made & fitted today, seems OK. Cost me about £2 & 1/2hr effort. (I bought a 25mm thick hard rubber dapping block on eBay)

    Xl600v Ok after about 1 hr of steady riding my water temp rises, sits at about 80 degrees upon hitting traffic after this it will rise up to 105 degrees then fan comes in and lowers temp. My question are.... 1. Is this normal? 2. Do your fans come on? 3. What temp does your alp run at? Cheers...

    I'm really like the look of the Heindau K60 tires but everywhere I look it says the 130/80 rears get rubbish mileage so I was thinking about a 140/80 rear. Has anyone out there used a K60 140/80 rear on a 650 before? I know tires sizes can vary from manufactuer to manufacturer so looking...

    My AT xrv650 1988 is riding merrily but i just met an AT 750 owner. Surprise! At 100k/hr (60mph) the 750 is revving at 5000, mine the 650 at 3500. The 650 sprockets are standard 16/49. Anybody who knows if this is ok?
