  1. Varadero
    I bought one of the last Varas in 2014, made in 2011 I believe. I’ve done three long European rides (3K to 4K miles) and it’s been brilliant. It’s now done nearly 41K miles and in preparation for another long ride around Europe I’m thinking I should change the rear shock. Just looking at Haynes...

    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? Cheers

    Sorry to bore you guys with this but I would appreciate your input. I have aquired a 52 plate, September 2002, AT 750 with 60,000 miles on the clock and a buggered output shaft. I have read most of the threads regarding this topic and seen the posts and pictures of the Spendler sprocket and the...

    Just had the Alp pass its mot with a couple of expected advisorys. 1. Wear on rear tyre and 2. Front brake pads worn. Me and 3 mates are doing the NC 500 in May so now is a good time to get the bike fettled up. Been looking at getting some Goldfren ceramic carbon pads with sintered metal in...

    Going to look at an RD03 this weekend. Any specifics to look for? I will be checking wheels/front end for play, rust issues and just overall condition. My concern more for the sprocket spline issue I suppose. Other than worn splines anything else there to look for when I check it out. Hoping...

    Assume gear lever was worn, purchased new one, shaft also worn :( would it be ok to weld for now? I assume it's engine out and strip etc ? Any other ideas ? Could I drill through pedal and shaft tap it then add grub screw ? What options do I have Tia Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Hi, I'm hoping someone can help me identify a noise on my 1997 AT? It's best described as a whirring that is only audible when applying throttle and moving. You notice it from around 30mph and it sounds like it's from the chain/sprocket area? It goes off immediately on overrun but returns as...

    Just wondering how long the retaining washer for the front sprocket should last? I had to replace mine quite soon after buying the bike because all the teeth had worn away allowing the front sprocket to slide along the spline and rub on the cover under deceleration. That was about 6,000 miles...

    Me and Jnr decided to have a go at doing the clutch yesterday evening which took about an hour to remove the allen bolts ,brake pedal and footrest. Upon closer inspection the clutch plates didnt seem to be too badly worn but the sides of the clutch basket are a bit which is probably why the...
