Good morning all,
I broke down on my rd03 last night. After filling up at the station to full, I went about 2 mins down the road before it first started hesitating and then slowly died.
it wouldn’t start unless I delivered fuel directly down the carb throats.
I checked the basic things first...
First time poster so do excuse me if I’ve made any mistakes!
I recently purchased an XRV 650 RD03. The bike ran great for my first two weeks of ownership. This evening I’ve gone to fire it up to set off on a multi day trip. It’s not running great with the main observations being:
Has anyone used a steering stabilizer on an RD03 or RD07? I've used Scotts on other bikes but the say they don't have a kit for the Euro AT. My RD03 feels skittish in the dirt and I'd like to dampen it a bit. Somebody across the pond must have made something for these bikes.
I'm looking for Workshop Manual Honda XRV 650 - (J) (1988). Do you anyone of you have softcopy of it?
or when I can buy it from?
BTW, I'm from Malaysia and as far as I know, only 3 AT XRV 650 available in Malaysia which makes it challenging to maintain.
I would really need favor...
Hello guys, I am Nikola from Bosnia and I am in the process of restoring old AT 650 and the job is nearly done so I've decided to share this with one of the biggest Africa Twin cummunities.
For now I will share with you link to a Serbian moto-forum,BJBIKERS, where I post everything I do on my...
I am in the middle of converting my US-spec Transalp to an Africa Twin RD03. The frame and most parts carry over to both models. I am using all original Africa Twin parts when possible and upgrade parts elsewhere. All parts are being powder coated or refurbished.
In the end...
i’m in the middle of restoring a 1988 RD03 from Switzerland.
looking for the square headlight cowl and a tank.
both need to be in good condition and not in need of painting. I already have both parts but the bike has been given a crazy paint colour so it might cost me more to restore what...
Looking to replace all the fuel lines on my RD03 as a couple more leaking a bit nowadays. Rugged roads has 4or5 sizes. What is most common I would need? I plan on buying some bulk lengths. They have 4.5, 5.5, 7.3 and 8mm ID. Mine are so old going to be hard to determine sizes. I know I have used...
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?

Transalp XL600V 88-94 & XRV750 RD03/4 Extended Rear Shock link for raised ride height.
I removed this lengthened link from a friends 1992 Transalp 600 as it was too tall for him. I now have that Transalp myself as he was...
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...
So I bought a well used ‘89 XRV650 which I am rebuilding. The weels are corroded and I need to replace them. I’d like to keep the bike as original as possible so I’m looking to source original DID rims.
I allready found a nice used rear wheel and now I’m searching for a front wheel rim (I will...
NOW SOLD The only reason this is for sale I am selling my Africa Twin RD07a and keeping my RD03. Having been able to try different seats this is has been the most comfortable by far. These are around £600 now to import from America or Europe and rarely come up for sale. The advantage of this...
After years of waiting (and converting my Transalp to as close to a RD04 as possible) I've finally got an RD03 here in the States.
It's an early one with 0000996 serial number and looks to have come from Germany through the hands of my friend and collector/restorer, screen name "Ujeni"...
