Photo quality isn't that good but action is. I tend not to repeat myself with photos but some of them maybe already seen in my previous posts where i uploaded many.
Nice, Would be nice if we could see some of the movies!

Last night I bought an extremelly clean 96 @ from a guy in the Netherlands... so I guess I have some reading to do. I'll try not to ask any dumb questions about fuel pumps, and I'll post pics soon.

Yes...pics please. I woulda bought the following '96 just for the paint and decals . It appears clean and a low miler too. An AT that's never worn crash bars in it's life with minimal scrapes and scratches gets my vote everytime if I were shopping. Did you have to pay taxes on it when bringing it back into Germany?
Yeah Ray...this one has your name on it. Let's go get it. Good thing Honda made alot of them as theirs always a sweeter one that comes up. Me personally...it's the RD07A all the way.

Yes, Please.

I'm in.....how much to bring it back to the States?

I think to get it into the US, you would have to "buy" it and then I'd have to buy it from you. So the US guys think it came from Canada.


I have a metal picture of you sitting with a cuppa coffee right now....am I right?

See your PM's Ray. No coffee here...I'm actually having an alcoholic beverage this morning only because it's the last day of my graveyard shift so it's like a Fri. nite.

Don't forget to bring the original title and original bill of sale back with you.....and you should be thru customs in 20 min.

I'm thinking of importing my 97 XRV 750 to Canada from Spain. How much are you paying to ship and how much of a pain in the ass is it to do the paperwork?

techo boffic question

Maybe I'm a bit confused and I don't want to go back into all the old posts (lazy shize I know), but here's a quick quation for the techo boffins:


Standard piston diameter for the RD07 = 81mm with 72mm stroke (742cc and 9:1 compression) http://www.xrv.org.uk/forums/africa-...fications.html


If I remember correctly, maximum oversize Honda pistons (got a set at home, but too lazy to go rip them out and measure them now) = 81.5mm

I've got some JE high-compressy pistons in at the moment and am pretty sure they are 82mm. And Honda Hawk 650 pistons (3mm oversize) = AT 750 pistons (1mm oversize). That's around 760cc.

How big can you go without cutting the crankcase? What's involved with cutting the crankcase?

Very nice bike Tiggs,
AT on bikesales.com.au simply incredibly. My friend who live in Perth WA searching for AT last few years but he's always empty hands so he bought GS 1200. I'm just curious, what is a value of AT in good condition?

This back from JE:

"Hi John,
We could just make you a set of customs. We have a 4 piece minimum on custom orders and, without knowing anything else about the part, I would say 4 pistons with rings, pins, and clips would cost you about 750.00 plus shipping.

Thank you for choosing JE Pistons!

Tj"
