    What's it worth?
    Hi all, unfortunately my RD04 is RIP, after a head on at 60mph with an overtaking car in my lane (on a blind bend after midnight [emoji35]) Anyway, as I’m not likely to be replacing it with an XRV (or any bike in the near future) all the parts I had are up for sale. I’ll take any reasonable...

    Africa Twin
    Hi, Planning on flushing the coolant, can’t make out if I should use OAT (silicate free, red colour) or IAT. The bike has green stuff in it now, but I believe silicates ruin the water pumps on some bikes. Anyone know what I need to use, my manual doesn’t say anything helpful on the matter...
