    Yesterday I started on the brake re-build for my RD03. This bike had been sitting for a few years with the brake systems drained and partially disassembled. Problem: How to remove the old crusty brake pistons from the caliper while not destroying them in case they can be cleaned up and...

    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...

    Bikes For Sale / Wanted
    Finally getting around to selling this. I bought it to use as a run around whilst I do a rebuild (of another 600!), but have found that I'm just not getting on with the project so this has to go to a) make space and b)motivate me to crack on with the rebuild! I had it a little over 2 years and...

  7. Confused with pipe/tube routing

    Dominator / FMX
    Hi Guys, so yesterday I rode the Dominator to work for the first time since the bike has been in bits and put back together. I'm not sure the vacuum pipes etc are correctly configured and wondered if anyone can help. All photos are pre strip down and they themselves may or may not show the...
  8. Free: Powerbronze RD07A screen - painted black

    Bikes For Sale / Wanted
    Hi all. Anyone needs a touring screen to muck about / fix buffeting / experiment to find a good way to mount accessories? I got a screen to play with to get the airflow right, but it is NOT for an RD07A. [RD07, I think] So no use to me... I believe that it is one of these: Powerbronze...

    Greetings! I have a '04TA and I would like to get a "Kevlar" film applied to the plastic "dashboard" piece (Honda calls it a Cowl). Does anyone know of a place that does the "hydrodip" process?

    Dominator / FMX
    any info please on "air vent tubes" coming out of a 1999 NX 650 Dominator, where do they connect to after leaving the carb .

  12. Slr debaffle

    Dominator / FMX
    Set to with the debaffle today. Cut the end off the two baffles so I could get 38mm hole saw in. Cut the baffle out and then welded a 42mm piece of pipe onto the hole so it looks a bit tidier. Gave it all a blast with some black vht paint and she sounds like a good un. Just got to swap the main...
  13. Fittings for Boano Marathon Tank question

    Africa Twin
    I was lucky enough to source a slightly used Boano tank. The fasteners that were on the tank do not have the smaller "inner" piece that accepts the twist stud. Can anyone tell me if the Boano kit comes with these or does one drill out the riveted pieces on the OEM tank and use? Yjx
  14. RD03 (650) Brake Discs - Where to find replacments

    Africa Twin
    A bit of advice/help would be gratefully received here. I'm trying to find front and rear discs for the XRV 650. I haven't had much luck finding anything good, my primary concern is most aftermarket discs are a single piece, where the OEM appear to be floating (perhaps due to a risk of...
  15. Transalp 600 (1994) Fan direction?

    Transalp
    Odd question I know Fan switch was faulty and welded solidly in place in my 1994 600 Transalp I fitted a manual switch instead, and although it is just replacing the original fan switch I am now obsessing if somehow the fan is running the wrong way. When in heavy traffic the fan doesn't seem...
  16. 1998 XRV750 - nearly finished project

    What's it worth?
    I was messing about with this about five years ago and then children started arriving and it's been in my way ever since. It's got to go and was hoping I could get some advice on its worth. I rebuilt everything and anything worn or could wear out I replaced. I certainly can't remember...

    Putting casing back on after blasting + powder coating. Kept all bolts in position through a piece of cardboard. One of the 3 long bolts that holds the outside cover of the stater / pick-up cover on has a copper washer on it. I cannot remember putting it on the bolt, but must have done !! Does...
  18. 1995 600 size of collector outlet

    Transalp
    (or) I wish I hadn't bothered but it had to be done lol My original standard silencer has some small holes in it so I decided to remove it and patch it up. It was a heck of a job trying to get it loose from the downpipe but it finally came away or so I thought. It had only taken the collector...
  19. Picking up an RD03

    Africa Twin
    I found my RD03. Not a museum piece, but very solid and a strong daily driver with all the right mods. The guy I'm buying it from took everything down and powder coated the frame, racks and all. Wheels have zero rust on the spokes and no corrosion at all. He's throwing in a huge stockpile of...
