No idea what half of the site says but they have a few AT parts.

To be honest I didn't do anything. These offers are coming in because they see you lot as active buyers. They know you spend money on your bike and want your business.
The challenge with this one is that I know that Riky Cross used to do some decent stuff for the AT but their site is very difficult to work out as its all in Italian.

Yes it was almost so good that I wondered if they had misprinted it.
I didn't check but have the email.
If someone tests them out perhaps you can post back here.

I'm trying to learn Italian at the mo, but deffo not up to this standard, try pasting the whole URL into the relevant section of Alta Vista's Babel Fish translator, i use this all the time for German translations of RD03 kit on ebay, you get some funny bits but generally easy to comprende

Its a flash based site though so I don't think it will work.

Just given it a go and it works fine, it even translates all the pages you go to from the first translated page :shock:

Only problem is they don't have pictures with most of the items and some of the words are literal translations, so not too accurate, also any word that doesn't have a direct translation stays in Italian.

I know some Italian Motorcyclists from my Milan office. If someone has time to cut and paste into a word doc all the relevant descriptions, i'll ask them to translate and then post it onto this thread.

The English language button doesn't seem to work but if you select the German language button some of that is in English. Enough to locate and download the PDF 'rally' catalogue. It's in (bad) English as well as Italian.

There's a few AT bits and pieces in there - I've emailed the catalogue to Dave. Don't know if there's a way of linking it to the site.


Hmmmn, try this http://www.rikycrossracingshop.it/eng/accessori_rally.pdf and go to page 3 :shock:

Ok, after much not understanding (on my part) and the order form not being laid out for UK ordering, I sent an email to Riky Cross over the weekend, got home today to find a reply and a Paypal invoice, so good turnround at order stage and most importantly they have given me a 20% discount as advertised by DaveS :D
Shipping is stated at 35 euro for crash bars for my RD03 so the total = 167 euro (~£112) which is also excellent because nobody else seems to do them for the RD03 (didn't even get a reply from EIBC!).
I just hope they get delivered as quick, don't want to have to carry them back when we go on hols :lol:

Update : crashbars arrived on wednesday (15th Feb) via UPS who had the sense to leave them with a nieghbor, not the best packed but Ok and unmarked, not fitted yet but every thing looks to be there and seems to line up Ok, instructions for fitting kindly supplied in English, look fine and well worth the money, came with a free cargo net! nice little pressie.

Very good to deal with and no hassle about the discount, defo recommended :D

All went well with the fitting till I tried to align the upper bracket, sorry Riky Cross, but it's just wrong, about 10mm too high.
I can get mine remade, actually feels solid enough without so not in a great rush.

someone was asking somewhere? so here's a pic of where the upper bracket's supposed to go, supposed to fasten round the radiator lugs and reach down to the two inner holes in the clamp bracket, but it's just too short to reach :(

Crashbars

Hi Dilbert,
Just been looking at the photo of your RC crashbars.
I have just fitted mine and got exactly the same problem.
Did you get yours sorted ? if so could you let me know how and by whom, as i will gladly pay to get mine sorted properly.

Regards Mart.

i had loads of rikycross stuff on my xt600 years ago and it was very sturdy.
if you want to translate the website, look up the site on google and google has a "translate" button next to each site not in english (or whatever home language youve set google to).
be warned, if italian grammar is anything like german you get some hilarious phrases, my favourite used to be "turning implement for the requirement of spinning tools screwed parts together" this is a wrench apparently, but oddly enough a spanner is a spanner! hope things have improved by now
