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?
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...
i returned from a ride and noticed coolant coming out of small hole under water pump - i ordered some replacement seals but it has made no difference
is this fixable or has the shaft worn so therefore a good seal impossible

Due to oil starvation to the top end, I need a new cam and rockers after I ran about 200ml dry at the top end (how do you know u ntil its knackered?!?!)...wondered why the tappets needed constant adjustment!! Now very badly worn.
Anyway, looks expensive so am looking at getting some used parts...
Fancy a project and I know its a long shot but has anyone got an unfinished project or as per title blown engine or worn output shaft and have had enough and what to get rid? I have a few spares and lots of time
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...
I have a spare transalp 600 engine cluttering up my garage
Output shaft is worn, but all cases etc are nice condition, could make a good donor/project
Collection from Sheffield or I know a reliable courier
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

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...
