rears

  1. Mechanical Advice
    A while ago, I bought a job lot of @ spares from ebay which included a full set of pads. I just been out to fit the pads and they are the wrong ones for my RD07A. A quick look on EBC's website shows that the fronts are for an RD04 and the rears fit mainly Triumphs but says that they may fit...

    and would like any comments on. :D . Its a range of ideas to set the TA up for next year, and give options as well. Things I'd like the bike to do: The full season of UK rallies, probably by trailer. Christmas and National meets. Erzberg "Konigsclasse", again probably by trailer. End to End...

    If any one knows the different lengths/fittings for AT rear shocks compared to Transalp rears I'd love to know. Background - I'd like a better shock, and they don't seam to be about for the TA, but I also want to gain ground clearance. An overlong shock could do this without cutting exhausts...

    'lo again. I stupidly posted question before this at the end of a nearly-dead thread, so I don't know if anyone actually saw it or not, or if a) no-one knows, b) no-one cares, c) no-one is talking to me, or d) all of the above. So anyway, I hope it's not too annoying to post it again in it's...

    When travalling in Europe the law requires vehicles to carry spare bulbs, I dutifully packed a headlight bulb & bayonett tail/brake light & indicator bulbs...... Trouble is the tail light is a 'wedge' bulb (like the small ones you get for dashboard back lights), so I purchased a couple of...

Has anyone here had experience of them. Also i was looking at fitting a 130 on the rear instead of the 120, does any...

    Anyone know where you can buy 17" heavy duty inner tubes for rear tyres in UK. I mean proper ultra thick ones they make for motox/enduro use. There are loads for 18"/19" rears but for the life of me can't find one for 17". Lex

    Ok, a few of us have had delays getting hold of our favourite tyres lately (TKC80's). After ordering 6 from Busters who are normally very reliable I ended up waiting 4 weeks for the whole order to arrive. The 130/80x17 rear came straight away followed by the 90/90x21 fronts two weeks later and...

    Had 2 sets of Trailwings which I really liked and gave me confidence but the rears only lasted about 4000 miles (all commuting miles) so tried Tourances. Done about 3,500 miles on these but don't like the feel of them. The bike does'nt seem as stable and they don't seem as grippy in this...
