    Hi folks - I'm new on here and hoping for some advice. I'm about to buy a '96 XR600. The seller has been very honest in that it uses a bit of oil and would benefit from a set of rings and valve stem seals. It'll be a restoration project but I intend to use it for the Spring/Summer first. I'm...

  16. Head bearing torque nut - any idea the diameter?

    Africa Twin
    I'm about to start replacing most of my bike's bearings, and the nut that sets the torque for the head bearings (around 11 psi IIRC) 'requires' a specific castellated Honda socket retailing at I think around the 50 quid mark... Before I strip the front stem, does anyone know what the approx...
