    I would like to replace my coolant hoses on my RD03. Honda parts are NLA. I was reviewing threads about the Samco or other aftermarket hoses and found threads that stated that some hoses were incorrectly sized. Those hose kits are pretty dear. Can't see paying that much for parts that are...

    So how do you go about choosing a proper size fuse? I received my new 3 circuit setup and would like to get it installed now. One line is going to my gps and another to the rear trunk. is there a rule of thumb to use for figuring things out? Also for the switched circuits can I use a rear turn...

    Hi Folks Once again I am seeking the educated opinion and good advice of the XRV community. The question is what are the benefits of changing from a 21" front wheel to a smaller size. I have read that the large front wheel is to overcome the occasional deep crevice or dip while riding offroad...

    Hello! I have had some problems with popping on the overrun on my rd04-90. I was going to change the header gaskets but is confused about the sizing of the front gasket. On 91 up it is supposed to have the larger one in front. I have bought both to try and the larger one fits very nice in...

Ended up with a Rukka Basti set in strech cordura and including all the D3O protectors, also on the back. Kevlar strengtening on exposed knuckle...

    After reading about the W2 Dirt Adventure boots in the earlier thread, What boots?, at the weekend I stopped by my local motorbike shop (Saltire) to have a look at them. However, apparently they've sold like hot cakes and they only had one pair left which of course weren't the right size. Can...

    Hi All, I was looking at the bagster tank covers for my burgundy TA 650 2001. I have found some on ebay but the sizing is a little confusing. They have some that fit a 2000-2007 model, others only for a 2001 model and then others that are for 2006-2007 only. So, does anyone know if all the...

    Folks With winter banging on the doorstep, it's time for me to consider some new boots. A recent email from the born again (in the UK) Hein Gericke is offering the HG Rallye 3 GTX boots with 30% off at £153, which I quite like the look of. Does anyone have these boots? Can you tell me if...
