    Africa Twin
    Wondering if a 1995 rear caliper would fit a 2001 (RD07a, XRV750Y)? I'm pretty certain all variants of the RD07 have the same front calipers, but now I think about it I'm not sure about the rear! (I won't bother you all with my sorry tale of sheared off bleed nipple, but to be honest the rear...

    Guess most people have heard that she's dead now, probably an overdose. Whats people's views on it? personally i always loved a lot of her early work but gradually she went down hill.
