Good morning all,
I broke down on my rd03 last night. After filling up at the station to full, I went about 2 mins down the road before it first started hesitating and then slowly died.
it wouldn’t start unless I delivered fuel directly down the carb throats.
I checked the basic things first...
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?
So I’m rebuilding a ‘89 XRV650 and I want to paint the engine. The side cases I removed and I want them to be powdercoated but I’m in doubt about the colour. Powdercoat can be done in most RAL colours. Anyone ever done this and know which colour comes closest to the original?
So I bought a well used ‘89 XRV650 which I am rebuilding. The weels are corroded and I need to replace them. I’d like to keep the bike as original as possible so I’m looking to source original DID rims.
I allready found a nice used rear wheel and now I’m searching for a front wheel rim (I will...
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...
I'm trying to work out what a couple of the electrical components on my RD03 are doing. I would like to carry spares for all of the 'game over' failure parts when touring.
I don't understand why the indicator relays have two different part numbers, anyone got a clue?
My XRV650 RD03 needs its wheels replaced. It seems it was stored outside on grass for about 17 years.
I have managed to get a Transalp 21" front in good condition and a ST1000 Pan European front left hand brake disk.
Would a Dominator rear wheel fit?
Good Dominator rear wheels are cheaper and...
As the title suggests I'm after the RD03 model. I'm looking for something that has been well looked after and as close to original build as possible. Im content with importing the right bike too but it would be a bonus if there was one in the UK.Im not a dealer but just a chap who likes old cars...
I want to do a compression test but can’t find the right PSI number for my bike.
I have a Haynes Manual and that shows the numbers for the XRV750 and transalp but not the xrv650,
I also have a manual for the xrv650 but it says 28 PSI and that’s not right.
Can anybody tell me the...
Planning on flushing the coolant, can’t make out if I should use OAT (silicate free, red colour) or IAT.
The bike has green stuff in it now, but I believe silicates ruin the water pumps on some bikes. Anyone know what I need to use, my manual doesn’t say anything helpful on the matter...
Just applying for a V5 and SORN on the RD03 as I didn't get one with the bike, checked online with the DVLA and its registered as a Honda Unknown Multi-Coloured.
As they are all imported do any have the right model on the V5?, or is it because mines from Japan?
Any idea if I can get this...
Ok ,it's the middle of winter and before I go into a freekin' coma with this freeze-up. I though this might generate a bit of heat !!
I need a PROPER XRV750 Replacement ! For some months now I've been excited by the prospect of a bike to properly stand tall on my AT side of the workshop. The...
