Thoughts on this (ebay)?
What's everyone's thoughts on this?
It sold on ebay for £3,800 last month, and is for sale again by someone else...
Thinking of spoiling the old machine and replacing the 21year old rear shock.
The YSS units that Wemoto sell seem to get great reports when fitted to the little CRF250L, so I was thinking of trying one out.
Anyone on here tried one on a 600 Alp?
I have prices up a Wilbers for it as well -...
My carbs are worn past the point of repair and the only option seems to be some secondhand carbs; have seen them on eBay Germany in the past but not for a while.
Haven't posted here for years but thought it might be worth a try.
Anyone got some RD03 carbs lurking in the back of the shed?
I'm new to the XL, I have what I thought is a 1989 XL250R, when I've searched the internet the R model seems to have stopped production in 1987 and was replaced with the NX250, can anyone confirm this.
Just thought i'd introduce myself, currently own a BMW R1150GS, though looking at changing to a Africa Twin XRV 750, I've been hankering after one for a long time now, and have decided to sell my GS (or swap, if you see my thread) and hopefully get one, so beware there wil be plenty of...
I guess this is my first post here. I hope to post more.
I have bought an FMX 650 2006.
There are no stickers on it, except one on front fender, and one on right gas tank side, but they are not original.
I was wondering, is there any electronic version of stickers, whether they are...
Im just about to start wiring my dommie project.
I have created a wiring diagram, and was hoping someone could give it a quick look over and give me feedback on any mistakes.
Also thought it may be handy for other people to use, (if its correct)
I had an intermittent fault with my 700 for months now. Sometimes it would't start and then sometimes engine would cut out when handlebars were turned to the right. Yesterday I decided to have a proper look and after looking for frayed wires or something out of ordinary I pulled on...
I wanted to restore the white paint for the dashboard light controls (Fuel, High-Beam...) of my RD03 (and I would not mind to do the same for the RD07).
I thought my patience would have been enough but I found out the characters are too small for free painting, even with the thinnest...
I'm trying to work out what a couple of the electrical components on my RD03 are doing. I would like to carry spares for all of the 'game over' failure parts when touring.
I don't understand why the indicator relays have two different part numbers, anyone got a clue?
Just thought I would let you all know about this waistcoat with high collar. My first go with heated gear and even though it was 10 degrees in the Yorkshire Dales there was always a cold wind. I was wearing a decent Merino wool base layer and the waistcoat over that plus a well known 3 layer...
I'm hoping to build a special dominator motor with a high compression piston - say 10.5:1
No problem I thought, as Wiseco do them for the XR650L - which is the same as the Dominator right?
Does anyone know 100% for sure if this is true of all XR650L motors because the Wiseco catalogue does not...
SOLD Africa Twin rear wheel XRV750 for sale
Rear wheel off Africa Twin RD07a some marks with age in good usable condition. I bought another wheel thinking my rim was rotted through in one place but when I took tyre off it was fine. Pics show where I thought it was rotted and also other side in...
Im getting a wheel respoked for my @ and want to use the best rim tape so I have looked on ebay and it looks very thin. I have some used pieces of rubber membrane I used to waterproof a roof and it was way more expensive than I thought and very good quality. Will this be better to use than £1.99...
now Avon Gripsters are no longer available I am considering replacing the rear with a Mitas MC24 ( I have them on the TA600) or E-08 (cheaper than MC24 & bit more road orientated).
I only use the TA650 on the road or gravel but many local roads are poorly surfaced and often quite muddy.
im on my 3 rd set of pads thought i knew what i was buying i bought EbC FA388, NOW THE PADS ARE DIFFERENT on the one im taking out the hole for the pin is at one end there is a square end for were i meets it resting place ,now the new pads have a cut out on the square end can still use these...
I am looking for a crankshaft or engine for my rd07a 2001 xrv750.
I know both are long shots and tough to locate but I thought I would ask on the forum first.
I believe all africa twin xrv750 crankshafts are the same part number from 1990 onwards.
Many thanks in advance,
I'd be interested to know what average running temperature you guys have. I went for a 150 mile ride yesterday and the temp reached 107. The road conditions were dry, 19C and an average speed 80-90, continuous for 2hrs or so. The temp gauge showed two marks below red so nowhere near boiling but...
My 2001 AT has 18,000 miles on it. It runs poorly and stumbles and vibrates a lot. Over the winter I think a carb strip and rebuild is in order.
Any thought as to have far should I go?
Fit new jets, gaskets, etc?
Replace diaphragms (if fitted)...
