  1. 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.
  2. Dominator / FMX
    I am looking for a set of crash bars for my 2001 FX650 Vigor. Is the frame different to a SLR frame. Does the Dominator have the same frame. There seems to a number of different model numbers starting with RD 0?. Does anyone know what the model number is for the Vigor. Just acquired the Vigor...

    Hi, Got a 2008 700 TA in december, stuck it in the garage - the Mrs has then filled the garage with crap so I can't get in from the garden and the youngest's car has broken down in front so I can't get in the front, hence the possibly silly question. Want to get a paddock stand for it (cheaper...

  5. Transalp
    I've had my 650 Transalp for about 7 years, and 40,000 odd miles. What would you suggest as a suitable, up-to-date, successor? A new Africa Twin would be exceedingly nice, but, being realistic, I should be looking for something lighter and less tall than the TA (and no more than £4-5000). Would...

  7. Dominator / FMX
    I've now had my first short ride on the SLR and enjoyed it very much. It's so much lighter, narrower and more chuckable than the Strom. However, having EFI on my last 2 bikes has spoiled me a little. The SLR has a stumble just coming off idle which is a bit annoying. It feels as though it's a...

  13. Yamaha
    Couple of pictures of my latest toy Having already owned a 660 Tenere, IMHO the “R” version of the 660 kicks ass. Lighter (easier to pick up without popping a vertebra when you drop it :rolleyes: :D), more flickable and you get than “wind in yer face” effect with it not having a fairing...

  20. Africa Twin
    Hi, Any "How To"s kicking about with instructions on how to install one of these? I've noticed a few people have them installed on their dash. If I installed one of these and connected a 240V inverter, would there be any problems with charging my mobile phone (sat nav, mp3 player, etc) while...
