  14. AT RD07 clutch mystery doing my nut!

    Africa Twin
    Firstly- an amusing photo: Despite drilling out the staked part of the clutch retaining nut, I managed to do this to a short length of 20mm round steel bar I'd welded to the dead front sprocket, and braced against the frame. A breaker bar with a short length of scaffold added was sufficient, I...

    Hello, I'm fitting Wirth progressive fork springs to a 2006 Transalp and wanted to know if I should discard the washers which are acting as spacers when I fit the new springs.

    Hi all I recently bought a 1983 HONDA Xr350 in pieces. I'm slowly getting things back together. My question is right now I am trying to figure out how the kickstart shaft goes in.
