    Will they physically swap over? Specifically will an rd07 fit an rd04? Mine is getting very tired and a bit bouncy but I am really tight on funds (kidney anyone?) So just trying to expand my options. Tia.

    Anyone know of any compatible ones that will fit, as no-one seems to be selling any specifically for a 700?

    I am considering replacing the cushions on my rear wheel when I'm putting on a new tire in a few weeks. I have noticed for a few years that there is some slack in the cush drive due to old/hard/worn cushions, and I am curios to know if replacing them would make the power delivery smoother. I am...

    Hi Folks, Just had a few quotes for replacing the steering head bearings on my RD07A and some are up to £130 without the bearings (which I already have) . Question is having never done this before could I do this job myself, would I need any tools specifically for the job or would I be better...

    Hi, does anyone have these fitted to their Alp xl700 08>? Am looking for advice on fitting before i make a purchase, specifically how and where they attach to the bike. It looks like they fit on the frame at the front somewhere. Any help would be greatly received.

    I'm really like the look of the Heindau K60 tires but everywhere I look it says the 130/80 rears get rubbish mileage so I was thinking about a 140/80 rear. Has anyone out there used a K60 140/80 rear on a 650 before? I know tires sizes can vary from manufactuer to manufacturer so looking...

    Hi all, not often I ask for advice! I've a rear hub issue, the bearing eating into the hub, so needs to be replaced. So, to the question, I've been quoted for a 3" rim? Specifically asked for a 3.5" but they've quoted for a 3" and put in brackets "not 3.5" What's the deal with that? The RD04's...

    After having to take a walk with my @ rd03 it turns out one of the cdi's is iffy. More specifically the one that signals the pump and tacho. So i purchased a replacement (the argentinian one that's readily available). It now turns out that this one doesn't power the pump either (note the old...

    A long shot, I know. :D I wrote a short python program a while ago to download data over a serial link and it worked fine under Python 2.6.5, but doesn't want to play under 2.7. More specifically, I test for available COM ports and then request which one to use. Under Python 2.7, the test for...

    OK a few quickies for RD04 owners, that I hope you can help with. My RD04 is not a pretty thing, and over the years, previous owners have made many modifications using the "bump and drop" method. Although it's primary function is a work hack, I do love things to work "as intended" or better...
