    Varadero
    Does anyone know the length of the original shock of a mk2 abs varadero? I would like to compare it with the bitubo shoch that it is fitted to my bike at the moment.
  3. Replacement Topbox lock

    Transalp
    Just wondering whether anyone knows of a suitable source for replacement barrel lock for my Honda Topbox on my Transalp XL700? The one on at the moment is getting more and more fiddly to open every day and is only a matter of time before it refuses to open. The OE replacement lock set is Honda...

    Africa Twin
    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...

    XR
    Hello Chaps. I've just taken delivery of a tired 1985 XR350, which is currently fitted with a 250 motor complete with a race head! My challenge is to do a complete restoration on it and also find a 350 in one piece if possible, or I'll have to build one from scratch using new and second hand...

    I'd like to introduce myself....................
    Hi, I've been living in Thailand for the last 14 years and just recently returned to the UK, but still making regular trips back to Thailand whenever I get the opportunity. How long I'm going to stay is anybody's guess and at the moment I'm looking around for an XRV750, I have my eye on...
  8. Exhaust Help

    Dominator / FMX
    Morning All, I was wondering if someone could measure the internal diameter of the tail pipe exit on the dominator exhaust for me please? I got my domi scrambler running at the weekend but it's ear bleed loud so I want to design a baffle to go in the cans I'm running. From reading other posts...

  11. C90 v Dominator

    Dominator / FMX
    Can someone explain to me why the price of a Honda C90 on ebay on most cases seems to be a lot more than a Dominator? I know people are customising both bikes but there seems to be a massive demand for the C90 at the moment. Considering its the best selling bike ever I would have thought there...
  12. side stand

    Africa Twin
    After taking a closer look at my side stand it was quite well worn firsly the paint was looking tired and worn out from the boots when using the stand .Secondly the foot which is in contact with the ground was showing some wear and tear from what i think is when the bike settles on its final...
  13. Tinworm

    Dominator / FMX
    You know that moment when you poke something with a screwdriver and immediately wish you hadn’t... I found a bit of flaky paint around where the seat and silencer bolt to the subframe, off side. One poke with a screwdriver later, I had a hole. After a friend attacked the affected area with a...
  14. Scrambler Build

    Dominator / FMX
    So here's my build to throw into the pot. Are there any original dominators left?! :p Wanted to go down the scrambler route rather than the street tracker look, as wanted it to be able to cope with some off roading. Have therefore made up a tray in the subframe which will house most of the...

  16. AT RD07 clutch mystery doing my nut!

    Africa Twin
    Firstly- an amusing photo: Despite drilling out the staked part of the clutch retaining nut, I managed to do this to a short length of 20mm round steel bar I'd welded to the dead front sprocket, and braced against the frame. A breaker bar with a short length of scaffold added was sufficient, I...
  17. Rat Bike/Tracker project nearing completion

    Transalp
    Well we have gone from this to this then... and to and.. Frame, yoke, swingarm and wheels all powdercoated. Engine sprayed matt black. Tank stripped and clear lacquered. I know it wont be to everyone's taste on here, but I am pretty happy with it so far. There are a few...
  18. XL250R 1983 chain guide rail (chain slipper)

    XL
    Does anyone know where I can get a chain guide rail/chain slipper for a 1983 XL250R? They are not available from Honda nor, at the moment, from David Silver. I have emailed numerous companies around the world who advertise this item on their websites but I don't think anything will come of it...
  19. U.K. First Registration

    Africa Twin
    Hi everyone, last week I finally brought an RD03 from France, I've been waiting a very long time for that moment. I'm in the process of getting everything sorted so it can be registered with the DVLA but I've run into a stumbling block. Because the bike is old enough not to have a EU...
  20. running too hot

    Transalp
    My new to me TA XL700 VA runs a bit hot....I read somewhere on this forum that "normal" running temperature for TA is 78C. Although it's winter at the moment my one quickly goes up to 80+ when I hit the traffic, then before I know the fan has kicked in....Coolant level seems OK, I can't see any...
