Just brought a 1985 CX650 seemingly a quite uncommon version of the CX500 family, only made a few 1000s worldwide for a year or so.
Many of those I ride with have BMW r600/750/800 so had to get something different and found this in Cardiff when I was looking for something quite different on the...
I am heading down to Germany the weekend after next to collect a 1970 Triumph TR6 650 that my mate blew up 20 yrs ago and I need a parts supplier.
This engine might turn out to be a total re-build and I need info as to where I can get the parts i will need and probably a parts catalogue.
I'll be picking my Vara up from store in a few weeks but have the slight problem that the battery will very likely be flat...For various reasons I couldn't take it out when I parked it up and there's no leccy supply there.
Sooo, one of the options is that I buy a battery, get it shipped to my...

when you fit the upgraded reg rec, you unplug the original round plug and blank it off with grease to stop it shorting, you the put the red and black wires to the battery.

I was letting a mate see the R65 and he took it out for a spin and thought it was fantastic. So as you do you chat about the bike and while I was showing him the steering lock I turned the bars and ping I've bust the only key. Fortunately I got the key out...
I've been sniffing round this bike for a wee while now and I've eventually managed to get it.
It's a BMW R45 fitted with R65 barrels and pistons and It needs a fair bit doing to it as it's been off the road now for about 5 years.
First task is to go over it and see exactly what needs doing. I...
I have a 2003-manufactured Yamaha TTR600RE, with a broken spoke in the rear wheel on the drive sprocket side.
It seems I need to buy a whole set of (expensive) spokes to get around this! Or I have been told that if I send one in that Central Wheels or Talon could copy and make me one. However...
There is an ex Danish Army R65GS, 1992 4-sale here, close to my town.
But with only 27 hp.
I wonder if it will feel slow and sluggish?
I might buy it and fit a 800-1000 engine in the frame.
We'll se if it's possible to haggle the price down a bit.
Wish me luck!

Has anyone actually fitted an R1 or R6 rectifier to their RD07 and if so has it lasted longer than the Honda or pattern part ones?
Merkado shows in this thread (http://www.xrv.org.uk/forums/africa-twin/29075-fitting-rectifier-another-bike.html#post295772) how he fitted a GSXR rectifier and...
Help! I bought an R1 R6 regulator rectifier and it came without its wiring loom . It just has 5 spade connectors on the end of it with no identification so I dont know how to match them up to the colours on my RD03 , is there some way of identifying them ?
