tired

  1. Quick question. Are the rd04 and rd07 rear shocks interchangeable?

    Africa Twin
    Will they physically swap over? Specifically will an rd07 fit an rd04? Mine is getting very tired and a bit bouncy but I am really tight on funds (kidney anyone?) So just trying to expand my options. Tia.

    XR
    Hello Chaps. I've just taken delivery of a tired 1985 XR350, which is currently fitted with a 250 motor complete with a race head! My challenge is to do a complete restoration on it and also find a 350 in one piece if possible, or I'll have to build one from scratch using new and second hand...
  3. Any experiences with the YSS Rear shock on XL650 Transalp ?

    Transalp
    I'm thinking of buying a YSS to replace the very tired original shock. I bought one for my 750AT and it jacked the rear up by 3". Nice shock but the seat is high now. Is the Transalp YSS the same deal ?

    While trying to mesh my clutch, with a tentioned primary drive gear assembly, I have come to the conclusion that the springs are tired and need replaced, has any one replaced just the springs ?
  7. Varadero 07, my new ride :)

    Varadero
    Purchased my new ride the other day, an 07 Varadero 1000. This will be my fourth!!! Very pleased with it, but I do not remember the ride being so firm. It's only done 19000 miles, one owner with full service. The rear is harsh. Smooth undulating roads, no problem. A bit more than that and it...

    My 2004 XR400R has very tired looking OEM Honda red plastics. Looking at my options, original Honda plastics run out at something like £240, as opposed to Acrebis at £110. What's the Acrebis colour match like to the Honda red? Cheers Gary
  11. Carb question

    Africa Twin
    Merry Christmas guys. I've spotted a major fuel leak from another bike I've got, it's an inline 4 and the 3rd carb is leaking from the float bowl overflow pipe. She was fine about a month ago when I last fired her up. I've taken the carbs off for a look and both the float bowl itself seems ok...
  12. Front brake light staying on

    Africa Twin
    Have been meaning to mention this for ages. As said the front brake light is staying on. There seems to be a bit of slop in the lever, push the lever forwards and the light goes off. I am guessing it is something simple, maybe the spring has got tired, anybody got any ideas. Pop the lever off...

  15. Rear shock question

    Africa Twin
    If my rear suspension is "tired" - how much of that is due to the: Spring damper unit age wear and tear My point being is that I could get it rebuilt, fit a new spring, leave it (would it improve that much) or replace it. Basically it works. How well? Dunno.:blob8:

    I'm still restoring my tired old '89 Transalp, which is swallowing money like there is no tomorrow ! I notice from the V5, that is was imported into the uk in 1997, but there is no record of where it came from. Does anyone know how I can find this bit of info out ? Regards Charlie
  19. Oh no! I think battery's tired

    Transalp
    I can't believe it. Passed test last Wed and tonight is the first opportunity I've had to get on the Transalp. So I reconnected the indicators and got the rack and seat back on, pressed the ignition and...well it sounded a bit feeble. Turning over but no engine roaring into life. Having...
