    I'm looking for some help on the mounting of the chain slider. I've been working on a restoration and it has been some time since I've been at it due to health reasons. When I went to put the slider on, the mounting point does not seem to be right. I'm wondering if one of the points has been...

  4. Transalp
    Hello, A couple of years ago (or more), I remember I promised you this video and I'm finally here to deliver! The 42nd Traverse is likely the best adventure ride in our North Island (New Zealand) and the track is named because it traverses State Forest 42. It's a beautiful place to be and is...

    I'm not getting in first because I'm a sad old bugger with nowhere to go on new Year's Eve, it's because I'm in NZ and already wearing off the hangover. And because I'm feeling some sympathy for you lot because it's peeing down here as well. Admittedly, for the first time in weeks, and there...

    Hi, My apologies in advance for the question which is no doubt a re-post. It's been 18 months or so sice I was last active *ashamed face. I feel bad, it's a good forum and deserves some love. I will add a bunch of pic's of my adventures in NZ on the 650 in exchange for your replies, I hope I...
  7. XL
    Howdy lads and ladies I've picked up an 85 XL 250 which as far as I can make out is an XLX250R and seems to have been a model for Brazil, Oz, NZ and Japan but not sure. I'm struggling to find info on it and parts are very confusing. I did find one thread somewhere that suggested these were an...
  8. Africa Twin
    A while ago the main (only) connector on the wires that run between the alternator and the rec/reg burnt out. It was just tired I reckon, it's a '91 RD04 so it's time was up. Anyhoo, the local version of the AA managed to get me back on the road (or rather away from the side of it) by sticking...
  9. I'd like to introduce myself....................
    Just bought myself a 1990 XL250 Baja. From what I can find online it seems to be a Japanese only model. My intention is to try and renovate back to standard. At some time in the past the twin headlights have been swapped for a single, which in my opinion does look better, but if I can source a...
  10. Africa Twin
    A few years ago, I visited the Honda Collection Hall in Japan. That was the first time I saw an XRV650 RD03: What a beautiful bike! Seeing that bike inspired me to import and restore my own RD03 here in California. It is a magical bike in my opinion and an important bike in motorcycle...

    There and back again A quote from Lord of the rings, the film being made on location in New Zealand. I needed some distraction over xmas new year and wanting to get away I couldn't get any further than NZ. I chose the right place to get distracted. Many say the best parts of Europe are mirrored...
  15. Kawasaki
    Wandering around Timaru the other evening, (on hols in NZ) we came across a multi-franchise dealership and in pride of place in the window was a Kawa 250 Stockman. Tough looking beastie with all the necessary crashbars etc. Sitting next to a KLR650 which looked HUGE by comparison. A right...

    I've been away from bikes for a while, had a DR350 which I bought in Texas (and used for a month of travel), then shipped to Kenya and used for 3 years. Next bought a BMW GS 650 Dakar in UK, rode around Ireland and Europe, then shipped to New Zealand and kept for 2 years. That was 5 years ago...

    Did the first bit of proper work with my new XR 125 today. Up a steep chalk hill, mud and frosty chalk all the way. Tied a fourteen foot ally 5" pipe on to the back, then dragged that all the way to the top of the hill through mud to meet my lads at the top. The pipe is used to inject air from a...
