  6. O-rings from the RD07 center stand

    Africa Twin
    I am curious. When I removed my center stand before the restoration, I didn't have these rubber o-rings. It seems my center stand has a little side-to-side play. I bought two from my ,ocal hardare store and they are smaller. They do fit the two sleeves/ pivots. Where do these o-rings go? I think...
  7. Nuts and bolt restoration - Trouble with rear brake pads.

    So I went to see just how deep the rabbit hole goes and completely tore my dommie apart for a restoration. I'm currently rebuilding it, and I've changed the pads on the rear, but there is only a pin to secure them on one end, which means that the pads won't stay in the caliper! What am I...

    Dominator / FMX
    One I knocked up earlier in the year. This was my own bike so kind of just played around with it making it how I liked myself. Not scared to crash it either. It came off roading with me a few times. I had a Hagon with stiffer springs so it handled quite well. I've done a couple of XR650L's...
