    I would like to replace my coolant hoses on my RD03. Honda parts are NLA. I was reviewing threads about the Samco or other aftermarket hoses and found threads that stated that some hoses were incorrectly sized. Those hose kits are pretty dear. Can't see paying that much for parts that are...

    Has anyone here replaced their steering head bearings? If so...how did you remove the bearing 'race' that is on the lower yoke? This thing... The internet suggests - using a chisel - using an angle grinder - using a dremel - using two screwdrivers - using some sort of special tool so...how...

    I’m pretty sure all the above use the same basic frame, so the dimensions i’m after should be the same. Could someone with a Swing-Arm from one of these measure the front pivot width. That would be the outer width, i.e. the width required in the frame and also the inside width, i.e. the width...

    Hello all Proud owner of a RD7A I'm suffering for an excessive oil lose, I fill the reservoir up to the max mark on the dipstick and 200 miles later the oil is half gone The oil appears to be leaking from one of the overflow tubes whilst parked on the side stand (although this anecdotal...

    I had a look for another thread to tack this onto but they all seem quite old, so I'll ask on a new thread. My exhaust is leaking from the collector to tail section join. I'm pretty certain it's just the tail section that's rusted out but though I'd ask if the 650 collector outlet pipe has a...

    So my 650 TA v4 has developed a lumpy 'pulsing' tickover and has started to backfire on startup a bit. It doesn't stall and runs fine when going though- still pulls well and mpg does not seem to have been effected.I thought I might be unbalanced cabs but I have checked them with a set of gauges...

    I want to replace the sight glass/inspection lens on the front master cylinder of my 1988 XRV 60, but I can not seem to find a spare or any information about the size of the lens. Does anyone have any good information about this? :happy8: I am pretty sure the XL600V shares the same master...

    Hello mates, would anyone here be able to tell me if there are significant, if any, differences of the rear end on the Vara before and after the 2003 models? I would really love to mount Givi V35's, but they only offer racks for the 2003+ models. If I don't have to modify the original rack...

    Due to oil starvation to the top end, I need a new cam and rockers after I ran about 200ml dry at the top end (how do you know u ntil its knackered?!?!)...wondered why the tappets needed constant adjustment!! Now very badly worn. Anyway, looks expensive so am looking at getting some used parts...

    Has anyone tried out the kk bike sprokets? I think they look pretty good If you want to avoid shaft wear. https://kkbike.it/en/120-sprockets If not I just ordered a superpinion and will report back in about 2 years.

    My 700 has always run a bit hot. I am thinking about swapping those 2 tiny radiators for a single large one. My question is would it be a simple swap or is there anything there to stop me doing it, some technical reason? I guess radiators are pretty simple but would like to hear from someone who...

    Hi All, Managed to track down a good condition pair of ktm 950 Adv forks which has literally taken years of checking ebay now and again. I was wandering if anyone had also started doing a conversion and had any ktm bits laying about. I'm after: front wheel or preferably just the hub full front...

    Hi, just bought one of these as a project bike. Bike has been sitting since 1992. All the plastics (fenders, side panels, fairing) are full of cracks. The cracks are just on the white paint that these parts have. Paint is not loose or coming off, but it's not pretty. They can only be seen...

    After all the parts I have taken off and put back on I am stuck with this little bracket. I did put a label on it saying sprocket cover, but I can't see in any place it will fit. I'm pretty sure it's somewhere near the drive sprocket cover but as I've said ?? I've also looked at some different...
