There seem to be quite a few very inexpensive Mitsubishi style fuel pumps all over the internet of late.
I’m assuming they are Chinese
Has anyone tried one yet?? if so please post your thoughts as to fit and function.
A strange request I know, but does anyone have any old front brake discs for an RD04 lying around?
I’m upcycling an unserviceable front wheel into a clock for my garage and I think it’ll look better with a disc on it.
Happy to pay for postage.

Guess the title says it all; have you Alp owners tried the TET North (Tynemouth to the Lakes area, via Hexham, Alston etc.) Wondering if it's a little too much for the Alp?
Eveyone is telling me a CRF250L or Rally // WR250 is the better choice!
Hi ive bought a 97 XR400R but upon inspection its got a broken valve which in turn has damaged the head too much for repair so im looking for a head preferably with valves/cam etc im in UK?
Thanks in advance.
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?
I was wondering if anyone had any advice on who to go to for parts? Who is the best / best value / most helpful supplier?
I also need a new battery and was wondering if I should go for a direct replacement or find a more modern sealed battery?
Xr650r tyres help
Hi guys just bought my xr650r couple weeks back and looking to get some new tyres.
I will be using the bike for on and off road .I have had a look at maxxis IT they look good is 110/100/18 the bigest I can do ?
Has anyone got suggestion on the sizes if I can go bigger or...
Has anyone here replaced their steering head bearings? If so...how did you remove the bearing 'race' that is on the lower yoke? This thing...
The internet suggests
- using a chisel
- using an angle grinder
- using a dremel
- using two screwdrivers
- using some sort of special tool
Does anyone know the actual real wet weight of the 650 Alp? Ive got all kinds from 191kg to 225kg!!! Also, anyone aware of any 'known' issues wiht the 650 or things I should be aware of if buying?
Cheers all, much thanks!
I'm new to the XL, I have what I thought is a 1989 XL250R, when I've searched the internet the R model seems to have stopped production in 1987 and was replaced with the NX250, can anyone confirm this.
