  1. Wanted: Longshot! XRV650 RD03 Carbs wanted

    For Sale / Wanted
    My carbs are worn past the point of repair and the only option seems to be some secondhand carbs; have seen them on eBay Germany in the past but not for a while. Haven't posted here for years but thought it might be worth a try. Anyone got some RD03 carbs lurking in the back of the shed? Cheers
