  1. Wanted: Longshot! XRV650 RD03 Carbs wanted

    For Sale / Wanted
    My carbs are worn past the point of repair and the only option seems to be some secondhand carbs; have seen them on eBay Germany in the past but not for a while. Haven't posted here for years but thought it might be worth a try. Anyone got some RD03 carbs lurking in the back of the shed? Cheers

  11. The new AT ?

    Africa Twin
    I went to the NEC show today, and had a look at the design exercise that's been talked of as the new AT. I had to peer through the ersatz "mud", but I suspect Honda will need to do a lot of relocation of sensors, or provide a much larger "sumpguard" before the bike could be used off-road in...

  13. RD-03 and LC4 suspension exchange

    Africa Twin
    Hi there, seams that I can't find the answer just by lurking the other posts, so I'll just ask straight away: should I go with this exchange? I now the front end is an easy job, but what about the rear shock? And another thing, the LC4 is (was) a supermoto, so I'm afraid it is too stiff...

  18. New Member

I like the TRX for trackdays cos it was cheap and i've had TRX's for years. Planning to out the VFR as i...
