swapping

    My 700 has always run a bit hot. I am thinking about swapping those 2 tiny radiators for a single large one. My question is would it be a simple swap or is there anything there to stop me doing it, some technical reason? I guess radiators are pretty simple but would like to hear from someone who...

    Hi to all! Have been toying with the idea of swapping my 650 with a 2015 NC750X. It's new but it's not the latest model. My main concern is the EFI... what's it like on low throttle openings? I've also heard many bikers complain that throttle may be snatchy / jerky when opening from closed...

    Hey guys! Im swapping over to a set of yacugar progressives in front. Can anybody suggest an oil weight? Im looking for a stiffer, sporty type handling but not shake your teeth hard.

    Hello again.. Cleaning up a second Dommie, and discovered that the reg rec was not working. (Confirmed by swapping out the reg rec from my daily ride) Ordered a new one (aftermarket), and when it came to put it in, noticed an extra wire coming out of the reg rec - black.. The original reg...

    I'm looking for my first XRV AT and was wondering if anyone would fancy swapping/PX theirs for my 97 Honda VFR750? Excellent bike, best all round bike I've every owned but the riding position is not suiting my knackered knee. :( If any ones interested please contact me for more details...

    First post and of course it's an SOS for help! Sorry about that.. Bearing in mind that my mechanical skills are just enough that I can safely take the front wheel off and put another one on without breaking anything, is this a simple in-out swap or more complicated? I've been searching Google...

    Due to my little legs I thought of swapping my RD07 in for this? Wonder if my panniers will fit??

    Hi all, just wandering how people have got on (ease of job, source and cost of replacement and effect on handling) with changing their fuel tanks. I'm the proud new owner of an 84 XL600R, and when I get her upto speed with MoT etc I hope to go a gentle wandering, but the tank is a Lot smaller...

    Are there replacement fuel tanks that will fit on the FMX. The XRs had various aftermarket tanks of various sizes (up to 40 litre I believe). The standard tank 11 litre is just a PITA.

    Just an idea, does anone know of the top of their head (or had personal experience) of swapping the OEM XL600V exhaust with an OEM one from another bike, I'm sure I've seen or read it somewhere (I think it was off a sporty number) Mine is getting a little brown and tired, but a new aftermarket...

    Maybe a crazy idea but i just cant seem to justify the 650 anymore. I love the bike to bits but spend anytime i do go out on my bikes on my KDX220R. I just dont need anything that can cover road miles and want summat a bit more enduro focused with less power. Yep, seems an odd move but for me...
  13. Africa Twin
    And am gonna have lots of spares - have looked at selling them (crank and flywheel gone) but to be honest not sure how long that will take - would there be any peeps out there with "stuff" in the garage etc that they would deal for say a set of barrels/heads etc? I would be after anything of...

    I have been recommended to the forum from someone on the VFR forum:thumbup: SWMBO and I have two Viffer 750s and one really ought to go... and we fancy a V-2, most likely a TA 'cos it's more managable for Mrs Sock, though her legs are plenty long enough:rolleyes:. Anything we should look out...
  15. Dominator / FMX
    Hi Guys, i presently own a 94 rd02 dominator and iam going tomorrow to take a look at 92 bike which the owner tells needs the rear exhaust replaced.Are the parts like exhausts,fairing panels, seat and fuel tank interchangeable between the two bikes, or is the fuel tank smaller on the 92...

    Hi, I have the common problem of Tripmaster resetting itself every time ignition is switched off. Instead of fixing it I am going to remove it and locate a Quest GPS there. Can I or someone who knows what they are doing utilise the wiring that was powering the tripmaster to power the gps? Also...
