  1. Have Fun in Winter Riding in Comfort with Heated Gear from Best Brands on the Market

    MOTORCYCLEiD
    You may want to extend your riding season into winter months, but cold weather threatens to cut your trip short when you feel your toes and fingers freezing. Lack of blood circulation in your extremities makes your feet and hands numb, which increases your reaction time making winter riding...

  5. BA20D (Non-H4) HID Conversion Kit with Electrical Ballasts

    Africa Twin
    XRV Forum Members: Hello and happy holidays! I am writing to learn of the availability of a HID conversion kit for my 1991 Italian XRV750 RD04 with BA20D bulbs or lamps. The current bulb is stamped with HERT4 12V35/35W. Since the American websites for Amazon, ebay and Google, do not...
  6. Blown bulb

    Dominator / FMX
    My dommie’s tail light failed on the way home last night. The first clue was when a trucker flashed his lights at me after I passed him on the M25. A couple of others flashed but it’s remarkable how many of my fellow motorists didn’t! Also remarkable what a faff it is to get to the bulb. Both...
  7. Nx650 Scrambler Build

    Dominator / FMX
    Well it's been some time in the making but my first custom bike build is now complete.:D Got to the point where I just wanted it on the road, so still a bit 'ratty' and might strip it all down again one day. But just passed it's MOT and already chucking about some green lanes. To be used and...
  8. Best Waterproof Helmet

    Helmets
    I'm currently wearing a Shoei Neotec Mk1. The visor leaks a fair bit when it rains. The Pinlock insert seems to shrink and fit poorly, therefore it mists up. The leaking visor causes the misting to accelerate. I contacted Pinlock and they sent me a new insert. It also shrunk over time and now...
  9. 650 headlight bulb

    Transalp
    So after 31,500 miles the headlight bulb dip filament gave up on my 650 the first thing that's ever gone wrong with the bike :D I found out when I switched on the ignition thirty five miles away from home in the pitch black :( and so the beam adjuster came in really handy as it let me lower the...

    Africa Twin

  12. Chain slider (lower front) on XRV650

    Africa Twin
    I'm looking for some help on the mounting of the chain slider. I've been working on a restoration and it has been some time since I've been at it due to health reasons. When I went to put the slider on, the mounting point does not seem to be right. I'm wondering if one of the points has been...
  13. Fixed my neutral switch....

    Transalp
    I was told it was intermittent when I bought the bike, and had been checked out and nothing seen to be wrong. So, investigations were made, and I soon discovered it barely reached the contact point inside the gearbox. I’ll probably order a new one, maybe, and I didn’t want to leave the copper...
  14. MIL Light Come on

    Transalp
    Hi Chaps, XL700VA, 2008 with 20K miles on the clock. Riding along a few weeks a go, on full throttle the engine cuts. Roll the throttle back off and it picks up again. Every time I open the throttle the engine dies, but picks up again when I roll it off. Bike is un rideable. No MIL . Turn it...
  15. Dominator gauge-block differences on diff. generations

    Dominator / FMX
    Hello! A quick question: are there any differences in the back-cover (most importantly in mounting points) of the speedoblock depending on the generation, i.e. are they identical and/or swappable? Happened to break the mounting ears on mine of a 1995 RD08 while carelessly tackling a motocross...
  16. XL700V - temperature gauge going bananas

    Transalp
    Hello folks I'm hoping you can help me pinpoint the cause of a peculiar looking issue with the 700. A bit of background; I've had the bike for a couple of years and recently had the engine rebuilt by a Honda dealer to repair a stripped output shaft. The splines the sprocket mounts onto had...
  17. Hi from new member

    I'd like to introduce myself....................
    Hi Decided it was time to join the forum, I've owned a '86 XL 600R that due to being laid up for a few years I've started to recommission, but as it was (and is) still off the road when the summer started I brought a '96 NX 650 Dommie that was ready to ride.

    Does anybody use Ebay search, when I tried it wants me to load some more software I use to use it all the time. Anyone downloaded the software?
  20. Name that noise?

    Dominator / FMX
    Apologies for yet another possible carb issue / tickover problem post but before I go and take the bike for some dyno time and tweaking I've been trying to make sure everything else is ok. Work so far including recent work by the previous owner - new CDI carb clean and rejet to 60 pilot...
