  1. New Seat?

    Hi all, Could anyone please tell me if a Honda xl650v seat, year 2006 will fit on a Honda xl650v year 2001. I have been offered one to buy but just want to make sure it will fit, looking at the photos he has supplied the plastic lugs under the seat look identical. Cheers, Spudy

  3. Vara brake pads
