    Hi Fellow XRV enthusiasts. Most of you are probably on your bike today as glorious weather but hopefully someone around to ask:) Replaced Headstock bearings on my RD04 (AT) and failed to make sufficient notes for reassembly. If anyone has a reassembly diagram then grateful, if not then good...

    Pillion foot peg rubbers on my Dommie are perishing and falling apart, currently held on with cable ties. Despite the fact I NEVER take a pillion, this has been bugging me so I bought new ones from David Silver. Does anyone have experience/ top tips for replacing those? It looks like it...

    Right that's it. I have had enough of being stoical and brave. After my hernia op, I was told I'd have a few days of pain but that it would heal up pretty quick. Trouble is, on one wound the trainee surgeon cocked up the repair and left a bloody great lump of super glue on it instead of the...
