Took a fall last week as a car turned into me whilst overtaking. I am now in search for full left fairing and gauges/cluster to start off with. Radiator coolant was leaking, still to see if it needs to be changed or not. Any offers are appreciated. Cheers!
there has been some talk about starter motor repairs earlier, but I couldn't find a good (reasonably priced) source for the starter motor bearings in Europe. The US repair kit is still available, but to me it seems a bit pricey (200+ USD), and I don't need all the parts supplied with it...
Not for wheelies - for repairs and the like . . . .
Had to take it into a shop to get a front tyre fitted and I've a speedo fault now so need to get the front wheel off.
I've got a rear paddock stand and a few jacks - no way of lifting the front and nothing I can sling a rope over like a tree...

Africa Twin XRV650. Going through my new purchase. Discovered a hole in the silencer just under the main bracket. After investigation (poking the rust off) it is now about the diameter of a bic biro pen. The silencer, when shaken sounds like a maracas and occasional debris drops out the baffle...
I have discovered that the snorkel on my new purchase xrv650 has had a repair in the past around the underside where one of the carburettor hoses attaches. Seems to have been repaired with grey siicon. Wondering if I should repair the repair or source replacement part?? Any idea?
Getting nearer to completing the rebuild on my RD07, one major stumbling block is the radiators and oil coolers require re-coring. One rad has a leak and the fins on all are soft and badly corroded.
Anyone had these overhauled and who by and what cost? New items are out of the...
All these fantastic high mileages that have been done on these fantastic bikes that we have,but nobody ever asks at what cost.So that is the question,what have you done in terms of maintenance,what have you had to do as far as larger repairs or replacements are concerned and how have you ridden...
Hi just wanted to up date my parts for a rd07a list.
Parts i have now got are 2 side panels below seat, right hand fairing ,exhaust, and front muguard.
I still need left side fairing, front fairing, bashplate and a seat i dont mind if they need repairs .
Thought I'd give this a proper thread of it's own so it's easier to find.
