  4. Choke cables XRV650 AT RD03

    Africa Twin
    I decided to sort out the choke on my XRV650 as it was stiff and probably not working well. It will not start cold with no choke, probably because it is often many days between starts so junking the choke assembly is probably not an option although I will try and make some blanking plugs if I...

  13. Some road users AAGGHH

It was great driving slowly down the middle, with my Zega panniers on too so a pretty wide...
