    Africa Twin
    Hi everybody, I am rebuilding front brakes and I need to change two out of four pistons, but I have trouble finding them in online shops where I usually get my stuff (german and austrian shops). Some have it for older models, some say that it is the same piston for older and newer models (I...

  4. JT Rubber Front Sprocket

    Africa Twin
    Hi all, Just asking if anybody has experience with JT’s rubber front sprocket on the XRV? We all know why many use the OE Honda front sprocket but since they cost about €30-35 and the JT cost about €15-20 it could be just as good.. Just for reference the JT sprocket is JTF296-16RB. other...

  6. Can you identify this aftermarket exhaust on my XRV750 RD04?

    Africa Twin
    Hello AT Fans! Can you identify this aftermarket exhaust on my XRV750 RD04? It was installed on an AT I purchased and I am unable to locate any stamps or reference to an aftermarket manufacture. It sounds really nice on the V-twin. Any thoughts or guess? Thanks in advance!
  7. Transalp 700 actual weight?

    Searching up TA700 specs,I can't find any reference to the actual ready-to-ride wet weight. Any number of sites quote dry weight as 214kg. So, if that's correct, it puts the fuelled weight somewhere north of 230kg. That seems helluva heavy to me. Can anyone shed any light?

  9. Slight stumble on pickup

    Dominator / FMX
    I've now had my first short ride on the SLR and enjoyed it very much. It's so much lighter, narrower and more chuckable than the Strom. However, having EFI on my last 2 bikes has spoiled me a little. The SLR has a stumble just coming off idle which is a bit annoying. It feels as though it's a...

  14. Varadero XL1000 02 Rec / Reg

    Looking for some clarity looks like my rec / reg is damaged, not convinced the one on the bike is OEM it has a part number of SH633-12 which is the same as in the Hayes manual photograph, but searching ebay this part number does not reference a varadero. Searching for varadero i get a part...
  15. Are bar risers the answer?

    When going uphill standing on the pegs (eg offroad) I feel like i am holding myself on the bike by tugging on the bars- i don't feel like I'm balanced, unless I shift my body all the way forwards, which decreases back wheel grip (a bit of a no-no on an alp!). Would bar risers help me feel more...
