Maybe you knew this RD07 with Honda-Rothmans Paris-Dakar stickers, but for those who didnt, you will fint it at least interesting.

I have an RD07 and I bough from this company the stickers to turn mine into "El charro" Cyril Neveu replica. Great service, great price.

Do the Nevue stickers fit your RD07. His bike was a RD04 and it is difficult from looking at the sticker patterns to determine for which model the stickers are intended.

Later this year, now is summer and I have spent 3000€ overhauling my AT, so now is time to ride? But for sure, I will post pics!

Your completly right Javier. After That amount of money spent on your bike, you deserve to ride it all summer long.

So i had a sw motech quick-lock tank bag laying around. But it could not be fitted on my AT because we do not have a bolted fillercap assy.

This is what i came up with..



And this is what it looked like, it does not affect steering at all.

Can anyone explain what happened to this R/R connector????

Battery depleted itself while on WBDR ( awesome 600 miles offroad, crossing Washington State from Oregon to Canada)

The rear connector caked and burned a hole through the plastic and some melting of the wire sheath !!!!

Supposed to be bullet proof sealed connector !!?
There was enough slack on the wire so no tugging

The unit is about a year old !! What do you think caused that?

Well, heat is the caused by a high resistance somewhere in the Burnt area. So a high resistance in the connector is the cause,(possible corrosion) did you use some sort of dielctric grease when installing the R/R? , the wire looks a bit pulled tho..

Yes it looks pulled yet i couldn t find any tension anywhere along the wire
The bullet connector inside looked caked but not corroded ( it is well sealed)

Dunno....
No i didn t use dielectric grease at install

Your dual radiator fans.

I had some doubts about that setup from the day that I heard that you installed it. I did not sound the alarm at that time, because I thought worse thing could happen, it would simply drain your battery.

Hello Alain....as mentioned already high resistence is the culprit. Did that harness come prefabricated with the wires inserted? It may be a case where they were just pinched on the inside connection and not soldered...like Jim illustrates over at Eastern Beaver.
pinching and soldering

Those are all high temp wires with high temp sheathing (battery 12 awg and 3 phase yellow 14 awg) so that's correct. From the above pic the black rubber donut seals are sitting too proud and not pushed in far enough to make them flush...another tell tale sign that something is amiss.
My guess is that they may have been pinched only and never soldered. Vibration and tugging on them may have caused the high resistence.
Ensure you get 14vdc when up and running across the battery ruling out any problems up stream.

More connectors or a whole harness can be sourced at Eastern Beaver.

You may be able to cut those 3 wires all back and start over but your going to need new connectors like the following or a facsimile.
cheers.
