something odd is happening to this forum
my posts keep disappearing.
i made two new posts to the ebay/gumtree thread, and another to the Africa Twin forum, and now they have gone
has anyone else noticed this?
Hi everyone. A few years ago there was a lot of discussion about big bore kits for the XRV750. The thread kind of tailed off, and I never did read of one that actually got finished at 850cc or even bigger. Are there any completed projects out there? cheers Steve
Anyone got any info or advice on the acceptable or expected oil pump drive chain slack when installed (or length between links if removed) for a 1994 XL600V?
Engine casing off as we speak and im mid clutch replacement but when I look at the oil pump chain ,it just looks to me to be very loose...
I had a look for another thread to tack this onto but they all seem quite old, so I'll ask on a new thread. My exhaust is leaking from the collector to tail section join. I'm pretty certain it's just the tail section that's rusted out but though I'd ask if the 650 collector outlet pipe has a...
Just tried to post and lost the thread, here goes the second attempt.
Have some good parts to go on
Can this be cleaned up in the frame? I really want to keep the engine in the frame.
Go gentle on me. I'm no expert, basic tools, small space to work in and a tight budget...
I was reading a ridiculously long thread on a Harley forum all about front suspension (as one does) and much was said about setting sag, after installing bespoke springs...as far as I'm aware, my 94/5' 600 has the long fork springs installed, ie there are no spacers between the spring tops and...

Im doing a scrambler build using an 1982 XL 500 tank.
Im just trying to find a petcock but struggling at the moment. The thread size looks to be 17mm x 1mm.
Would anybody be able to advise where to get one from in the UK please?
I just looking for Oil Temperature Gauge for my '93 RD02. I found lot of them at ebay around 30 EUR for rd08, and 65 eur for rd02.
As far as I know, the thread size is different: RD02 has around 29mm, and RD08 has 20x2.5mm.
But, the rest of the stick is same?
If this is true, I...
My brake light isn't working with the front brake. I was hoping a quick clean of the connections at the switch would fix it, but no joy. What else is it that might be the problem. I read one thread where a guy had a broken wire. I'm hoping that isn't what's wrong with mine. Brake light works...
I have 2 RD04's and want to overhaul one completely (and for now use the 2th one as spare parts.
maybe I can still put it to service if I don't have to strip it down too much.the thread of a spark plug is broken anyway :/)
Purpose is to have a complete "new" AT which I can use for daily...
Later in the year I will be rebuilding my front forks with progressive springs, in respect of the seals do I need to order one of these kits:
2 Oil Seals
2 Dust Seals
2 Retaining Clips
2 Inner Bushes
2 Outer Bushes
Or can I just order the seals?
Also what fork oil...
So, I've got a Xrv750 - 96 and want to lift it and at the same time make it more offroad capable..
I've been reading a shit load about fork changes but in no thread anywhere does it mention how much lift the
actual fork change made? I've read about Honda, yamaha and ktm Forks, all of them...
Since changing the CDI my Dominator starts fine first thing in the morning, garaged over night, after work though she is a pig to start. Again garaged all day in a public car park. Messing about with different amounts of choke the bike backfires bad and then eventually starts.
The only other...
