  1. Varadero
    I bought one of the last Varas in 2014, made in 2011 I believe. I’ve done three long European rides (3K to 4K miles) and it’s been brilliant. It’s now done nearly 41K miles and in preparation for another long ride around Europe I’m thinking I should change the rear shock. Just looking at Haynes...
  2. Other Honda
    I've recently changed front sprocket down from 16t to 15t. The rideability is dramatically improved around town, but it throws out the speedo. 80mph indicated is in fact 70mph. This is something I can deal with, but the odometer is also out, throwing of total mileage the bike has covered (extra...

    Hi there As mentioned a few months ago in the XR segment of this forum, I am offering up first dibs on my XR400 to you guys. As I now have osteo arthritis in my right foot, kickstarting has lost its appeal somewhat, mostly as it sometimes hurts, anyway. It is a 1996, P reg. Mileage unknown...

    My 04 650 alp has clocked 31,400 miles from new and is still on the original chain and sprockets, I know the green zone wear indicator will only be a guide to chain life but in the five mil. width the green has I still have one point five mil. left. Also the difference in chain play only varies...

  10. Africa Twin
    My current sprocket setup is -1 front and +3 in the rear. I like this, but I'd like to get better mileage on the road and I want an OEM 16T front for reduced wear on the shaft. Thinking of changing my chain and go to just +1 in the rear or should I go with the stock 46 tooth rear sprocket?
  11. Varadero
    After having a 2002 carb'd Vara, I bought one of the last Varaderos in 2014 (manufactured 2011) and now it has done 27,400 mainly on long trips around Europe. I was just wondering how long the CCTs are good for? I don't hear any nasty rattles or anything so I'm just wondering whether it's a good...

    Hello. I am writing to learn if any XRV750 owners may have learned of premature countershaft or output shaft wearing and continued to ride while monitoring the wear rate. The first image reflects approximately a 30-40% reduction in the width of the splines. Also, please note the condition of...

    Well I've been in Europe 6 months now and yet to get a bike. I've been looking for an RD 04 since I have been here as I have an RD03 stateside already and wanted something different. Everything seems to be to far away or I just don't get to it in time coupled with the fact I was looking for a...
