    Hi all, I've put about 1000 miles on my FX now and as it turns out it is burning oil pretty badly. I know this because in the space of 5 days and roughly 800 miles the oil went from the middle of the dipstick to below it, the only reason I noticed this was due to my oil temp dipstick going down...

    Here is my latest XR600R project on my YouTube Motorcycle & Tool Rehab Channel that I'm saving from the junkyard. I managed to get it running after sitting for several years. The old girl even threw my off on camera which put me out of action for a few weeks. It hurts more when your older The...

    Hello guys and gals, I have been lurking on this forum for some time without an account. Now I have something to contribute, so here I am. I bought my RD04 1990 in 2014 just because me and a buddy wanted to travel through South America (he bought an RD04 from 1992). When I bought it, it was in...

For now I will share with you link to a Serbian moto-forum,BJBIKERS, where I post everything I do on my...

    I’m on changing the output shaft on my 700 XL and having started it up after the rebuild I am getting a very light noise from the clutch side, my question is there anything that is peculiar to the clutch to make it noisy. When I pull in the clutch lever the noise disappears. , there is also a...

    Yesterday I started on the brake re-build for my RD03. This bike had been sitting for a few years with the brake systems drained and partially disassembled. Problem: How to remove the old crusty brake pistons from the caliper while not destroying them in case they can be cleaned up and...

    Hello all! I'm the proud yet frustrated owner of a Transalp xl650v6 which I brought new in August 2007. Ever since then I've had a love hate relationship with the bike especially when it comes to maintenance and repairs. Firstly let me admit that I am a sinner! Hailing originally from New...
  10. I'd like to introduce myself....................
    Hi everybody, I am new to this forum. Just bought an XRV750rd07a full stock that I am planning to rebuild to a lighter and more offroad capable travel bike. One of the ideas is to install Supersprox sprocket and 520 pitch chain to reduce weight. Anyone any advice or experience having done this.
  11. Dominator / FMX
    Hi All, I've tried searching but haven't managed to find a definitive answer. Is there a direct replacement carb that would fit a 1999 nx650? I was going to strip and rebuild mine as it's got the usual tickover issue but if there is a better replacement that could be used I may well just go...
  12. For Sale / Wanted
    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...
  14. For Sale / Wanted
    I am in need of a white front fender for my 1993 RD07. If anyone has one in decent condition that they would sell, please contact me. It is one of the last pieces I need for my complete rebuild I am doing. I already have brand new white plastic lower fork leg covers, so I just need the...

    Hi all! Been a while since i last posted.. moved house, got a car, started a family etc, so the rebuild of the RD07A was put on hold... until now :) I am in need of either... some new (second hand) brake calipers (front and back) or info on where i can send my ones for a full refurb etc...
  16. Africa Twin
    Hi all, Started the rebuild process last week at last! Thought I would start a tread about it as I do like to read a good rebuild post and happy to receive any suggestions that go along with it. Happy with my progress so far but I think this is going to take a long time before it's back on the...
  17. What's it worth?
    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...
  18. Africa Twin
    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...
  19. Transalp
    Hi All, Yesterday I stripped my bike down to give it a freshen up, below is a list of jobs i'm planning to do, is there anything obvious i've missed? I'm hoping to have the bike back together and running in 3 weeks time for MMM at Haggs bank. I'm going to prioritise the engine as that's the...
  20. Transalp
    Following the theft and subsequent recovery last March of my old transalp 600 (in pieces). I'm now gearing up for a project. I have most big parts from my alp here with a frame from a bike a friend broke for spares. As this will never be/feel like the same bike it was, I'm planning a few...
