Hi,

in Austria we have two different HP on the 750 engines: 50 HP and 60 HP as the germany modell has.

The Austrian Modell has a different camshaft and a different intake with a smaller diameter.



The RD07A Modell has a different Ignition and a throttle Sensor, a different Frontlight.
Further, the RD07 has air valves on its fork legs and adjustable rear shock softness.
The fastening bracket for the exhaust is also somewhat different when comparing to the 07A.
The carbs are jetted differently, with a larger jet for cooling (?) of the rear cylinder on the 07.
The Golden rims of the RD07 is another obvious difference to the more recent 07A's as is the differences in looks of the front cowl.

Just kidding of course. That is one sweet ass job. I think when I have time I will have to do some better work but for right now I need to ride it so I am wrapping everything in electrical tape and rolling down the road. Just how us Aussie's do it.

Question for twinmike

In your pic there is a green connector that slots into a bracket with another connector next to it in the bracket. What does the second connector go to as my bike has that slot open?

900 rpm for idle??? isn't that a bit on the low side? You should aim for 1.200 rpm ± 100

powder coating

http://www.tilkin.be/

Check this site for powder-coating, they deliver very good work.
You don't have to make an apointment, and it takes about a week.
They charged us 175 euro for a frame, and 250 if you want a metallic colour.

Cheers! Don't remember your name - sorry, and I've not been on xrv.co.uk much lately but I bought your SWEET RWB RD07A when I lived in England. I ended up moving back to the US and bike is now enjoying life with me in Colorado.
