My mate Paul has just made some infil panels to go on his RD07. We were chatting the other day and he asked me to take a look at his bike and see if I could see anything different, I looked but didn't notice them until he pointed them out.
What do you think?
Just brought a 1985 CX650 seemingly a quite uncommon version of the CX500 family, only made a few 1000s worldwide for a year or so.
Many of those I ride with have BMW r600/750/800 so had to get something different and found this in Cardiff when I was looking for something quite different on the...
Hi guys, collected another RD07 AT for my mate, I think it's been a UK bike, as I can trace it from the Irish documents, emigrated to Poland, then Ireland and to Scotland via Northen Ireland. At some point the clocks have been changed and are now white kmh, he's not bothered a bout the mileage...
Hi, Im new to this forum but not biking. Im just back from 2 weeks biking around Mozambique and South Africa. My mate brought me a 1988 XVR650 for the trip. Its in good original shape with about 60,000 kms on the clock. He wants US 1500$ for it. I understand they are fairly rare so is it worth...
Rd04 rear wheel bearings again ! ( Now Fixed )
Well after buying and installing some Slinky Glide rear wheel bearings from Wemoto i still have some movement in the rear hub.
I've tried all sorts to find where the play in coming from and even got a engineer mate to measure it all with no...
So yesterday while the tank was off balancing the carbs, I realised I hadn't changed spark plugs in over 24k km's so in amongst all the chatting with a mate and helping him fit heated grips I changed all 4 plugs put the bike back together and all is good, running and ticking over just fine, go...
Got some really shit news today from my mechanic mate who was looking at an oil leak for me. He discovered that the "fully restored" AT I bought had had its crank case welded together and he also found cracks in the casing. I'm gutted.
Options are to replace the casing, replace the engine or...
I got my Honda coil today and when I fitted it I got a spark.
I just need my new needle from my mate in America then I can dial the flatside in and start this bike up.
Just in case you forgot what it looks like :D:D:D
Three years and alot of dole money in the making.:clown::clown::clown:
My mate having problems finding a clutch Cable for his XBR500.
Wemoto have none.
Neither does CMS in Holland.
David Silver will not get them in store for Another four months. (if ever...)
Anyone on the forum knows were I can get a Cable?
I am heading down to Germany the weekend after next to collect a 1970 Triumph TR6 650 that my mate blew up 20 yrs ago and I need a parts supplier.
This engine might turn out to be a total re-build and I need info as to where I can get the parts i will need and probably a parts catalogue.
My Mate Allan called me a couple of weeks back and we both bunked off work to go paragliding at Rhossili.
Got there and no one in sight. Conditions were good so we gave it a go.
Allan filmed it on his gopro and made a great job of editing.
This sums up the whole game perfectly, me on the orange...
Me and my mate are planing to do a trip to Mongolia next year in May, so we are starting slowly over the winter to prepare my old RD04, so I was wondering what I should put most attention into preparing bike and what spare parts I should take with me?
I would appreciate any advice
My RD04 was pinched a while back. I got it back via the police which was a miracle.

I have just found myself a lovely pillion passenger, RD04 rear pegs are unavailable SH and I am ona tignh budget.
I don't suppose anyone living in Bristol happens to have a spark plug spanner for my RD07a I can borrow tomorrow is there?
I have ordered myself one from Rugged Roads, but my mechanic mate would appreciate me getting my bike out of his garage tomorrow if possible!
Fowlers don't stock...
My Buddy's 450 just out for a couple of hours work, and then riding today :thumbup:
Daytime MOT only, IIRC there needs to be power spun back out of the rotor and stator to power lights and sundries to get a full MOT?
Tall bike though! And kick start only, which is nice ;)
Is this around the...
Last minute decision for next weekend, myself and a mate have decided to do a visit to South West Wales. Any suggestions for accommodation, drinks etc, staying only 2 nights, maybe someone has done a ride there recently. Thanks
