    Having refurbished my rear brake callipers on my 1996 XR250R, I though the front callipers would be the same ..... BUT alas not. I discovered phenolic pistons in the front callipers ? Am wondering if they’re worth re-using, as i’ve never come across phenolic pistons before and I was...

    Hi All. Long time no post. I do hope you're all well. My rear shock is getting a bit long in the tooth and I want to start looking to replace it. My bike is 100% road going these days so I would not be against a road set up rear shock, so does anyone know what fits? I know there are lots of...

    I need one for my XRV750 RD07A, are there alternatives to the Honda original aluminium one, searches appear to show plates that bolt onto the aluminium casting but not a replacement for the casting. There do appear to be replacements for RD03/4 carriers that are different to the RD07/7A...

    During our move a box has been misplaced :( Now I have time, space and money to start this rebuild. A lot of xrv rd04 have been broken for parts but no one seams to keep the little things ! Pricing these small items new, very expensive. Thank you. Safe Riding.

    The rear shock on my RD04 is really harsh at holes and bumps, and it goes thru the whole bike. Its feels like the compression damping is too hard. I have tried to adjust it, but I can’t feel any difference. I have 30 mm free sag, and 70 mm rider sag, so the spring should be ok. (from the...

    Hello people. Long time no see, etc. Not been around here in yonks due to, well, life and things like that. You know how it is. Anyway, I finally got to the point where I have admitted I am never going to live anywhere with a garage where I can rebuild my old RD04, so I think the time has...

    Hi fellow AT owners, sorry for the long post. My rear cylinders compression has gone down to less than 100 psi (front still ~130), and its leaking oil from head gasket and the bike is burning a considerable amount of oil. It has now gone more than 140.000 km. Still running ok, but doesnt have...

    Hi, I'm in the process of rebuilding both front and rear wheels on my 1998 RD08, problem is I've only got the 88-89 manual. According to this manual the front wheel offset is given as 22.25mm from the disk to the rim, this is probably ok for my '98 as nothing much changed from the RD02 model on...
