Not as dirtbiker only, but more semi so...
I have a 96 Dommie that I use for all sorts of travel on and off road. I noticed recently that the bars are moving more in the rubber mounts. Can the rubbers be removed and replaced? I tried tightening the nuts under the top yoke but still they seem to wobble more than before. I...
Hi all, I'm interested in finding out what sort of value my xr500 would realise. My dad bought it new in Dubai and it's basically sat in either my garage or his since then. It runs great and I make a point of running it quite frequently. I really don't know what its value could be although I...
Does anybody know if the XR500 silencer/muffler will fit on the xl500 header pipes as I'm struggling to find a decent silencer, alternatively if anyone out there has a good condition XL500s silencer for sale get in touch with details.

Hi Guys, I am so glad I found this site.

I have a 1982 xr 500 project and the motor runs fine but its missing the clutch push rod,i am guessing that one from an xl500 would be the same? Anybody know if it would. Has one for sale or can measure one up length and thickness and I will get one made up . Thanks in advance
Alright.. So the time has now come for building a Street-tracker out of my XL600RM. I don't really have any special concerns regarding the build, exept for the gas tank. I want a smaller tank (XT500, XR500-ish..), but I'm not really looking for a tank that will require a lot of work to make it...
