  3. Wanted: Longshot! XRV650 RD03 Carbs wanted

    For Sale / Wanted
    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
  4. Powdercoat colour engine cases XRV650

    Africa Twin
    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?

  6. RD03 Wheels

    Africa Twin

  7. Chain slider (lower front) on XRV650

    Africa Twin
    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...

    Africa Twin
    Hi all, 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? 38301KJ6743 -...

  11. Will a NX650 RD02 Dominator rear wheel fit a XRV650 RD03

    Africa Twin
    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...

  13. How Much Cylinder Compression On RD03 ?

    Africa Twin
    Hi all, 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...
  14. XRV650 RD03 coolant type

    Africa Twin
    Hi, 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...
  15. XRV650 RD03, DVLA call my AT a Honda, Unknown, Multi-Coloured

    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...

  19. RD03 (650) Brake Discs - Where to find replacments

    Africa Twin
    A bit of advice/help would be gratefully received here. I'm trying to find front and rear discs for the XRV 650. I haven't had much luck finding anything good, my primary concern is most aftermarket discs are a single piece, where the OEM appear to be floating (perhaps due to a risk of...
