  1. CRF1000L rear shock on XRV750 RD07

    Africa Twin
    Hi, did anyone try the rear shock of the CRF1000 on an RD07. First , will it fit dimensionally and how does it behave. I find the CRF rear suspension more comfortable and want to fit the shock on my RD07a. The CRF shock can be found relatively cheap as second hand, and saves the investment in an...
  2. Xrv750 centrestand with ohlins

    Africa Twin
    Hi, does anyone have fitted or know if a centrestand is long enough to work with an ohlins shock and fork extenders fitted. I am thinking of buying one and wonder if it will need extending to enable it to work correctly. Many thanks, Jason.

  4. New SD01 Owner in South Australia

    Finally got my first decent ride on this new acquired bike today. :D After a little suspension and carby tuning, I think I'm going to like it! My main concern is how much the fairing rattles and moves about on rougher tracks. Not sure what I can do about it, though. It came with lots of...

  11. Fork oil

    Africa Twin
    Back Ohlins sorted & now onto the forks, ordered a set of intiminators from the states. Whilst they're off they're going to be stripped & re powder coated, question is how much fork oil does the @ take (think it's 5wt with intiminators) & what's the best to get?Also what's the story with fork...

  18. Not another monoshock question from the scouse git in Denmark.

    Dominator / FMX
    Greetings chaps, I have found an Ohlins TTX 44 Mk 2 from a Husaberg supermoto for sale and was wondering if it can be modified to fit my dommie project. All I can find out is that its 4.5 cm shorter than the dommie mono between the bolt holes. This will obviously reduce the ride hight which is...

As Sweden is only 100 miles away, I was thinking of finding a second hand Ohlins unit online. Does any one know of any...

    Dominator / FMX
    I have just completed an upgrade of the rear shock spring, and have gone thru the complete dismantling of the bikes rear end. During this mammoth outting I was astounded with the difficulty of access to the carby due mainly to the enormous and cumbersome airbox, and in turn, the need to remove...
