  1. XL
    Hi, just joined this forum as I have just bought a very nice imported ( USA ) 1972 XL 350 that was restored 11 years ago and not been used since. It has been part of a private collection including a Vincent Black Shadow. Plan to put oil down the plug hole for a few days and see how the engine...
  2. Dominator / FMX
    Hello, I guess this is my first post here. I hope to post more. I have bought an FMX 650 2006. There are no stickers on it, except one on front fender, and one on right gas tank side, but they are not original. I was wondering, is there any electronic version of stickers, whether they are...

  4. Ride Reports and Pictures
    Paid the Ardnamurchan peninsular a visit on Friday, seeing as how Rederic of ABR forum had organised a little gathering at Strontian. Took the long way there via the Lecht, Glenshee, Pitlochry and Glencoe - no worthwhile photo’s from any of those locations – but I took a few from on the busy...

    600 Alp - Loaded test run Well, after over 400 miles since yesterday morning, I think I can safely say that the 21 year old Alp is fairly sorted. Took a 120 mile run over to the Red Squirrel camp site at Glencoe Saturday morning and met up with a fellow Alp rider. Red Squirrel camp site...

    now Avon Gripsters are no longer available I am considering replacing the rear with a Mitas MC24 ( I have them on the TA600) or E-08 (cheaper than MC24 & bit more road orientated). I only use the TA650 on the road or gravel but many local roads are poorly surfaced and often quite muddy. There...

  12. XR
    Hi guys I went riding on sunday, only for an hour or so, and this was after I had been out for a similar amount only a couple of weeks earlier. Before I went out a couple of weeks ago, I checked my oil level and it was great, so didn't think to check it this week. (I've had the bike 3.5 years...
  13. Bodgers Corner
    I'm working on a project with my VTR Firestorm getting some stainless steel split flanges fabricated in a small run. On the VTR v-twin the front pot gets hit by salty spray and heat and the OEM mild steel flange gradually disintergrates. Not helped that Honda set them as non removeable on the...

    As RD04 is the only variant of the XRV650/750 I have not owned and this was local it was worth a look and there was space in the garage as I sold a CX650ED.A 1992 with 25000 miles. Does anybody recognise it, I brought it from a guy near Ledbury that has had it since August 2014 and he brought...
