    The Anakee 2s on my XL700 are nearing the end of their life. I've been pleased with them but, having tried the Alp offroad a couple of times I'm reconciled to not doing it any more (too heavy for my skills).

    I'm in the midst of restoring my RD03 (very pleased so far). Last night I was finishing up the carbs and noticed that the jets are rated at 130 and 125. Checking the manual confirmed that the front carb gets the 125 and the rear carb gets the 130. My question is why? Why would Honda want the...
