Nice

Just too far away for me. Maybe I need a vacation?

Carb replacement / substitute question...

Hi All,

I'm still working to rebuild my '84 RD01 but the carburettor pair is unfortunately that much clocked with dirt that it can't be cleaned any more...

The original is rather expensive (if available in first place...) and there fore I'm looking for an substitute... Which one could do the trick? In fact I only need the carburettor housing; I can move all the parts and needles from the original into the new housing.

The question I have:
- Which Honda Carburettor (or Carbhousing) can be used as affordable substitute?
- Perhaps a MK1 Transalp (till 1990 - from 1991 the carburettor is changed resulting in less power - the MK1 XL600V Transalp has 55 Bhp, the MK2 (> 1991) only 48)
- Or one of the earlier Africa Twin models, f.e. the XRV650?
- Other alternatives?

My RF (1985) version still runs faultless. I just love it, and desperate to get his older brother back on the road too. I'm hoping to get the info's I need from you guys...

Greetings

Perhaps wrong suggestion but...did you look at carbs on "donor" of XLV engine? VT750 cruiser? I have no idea if they will be same or suitable, I just think those must be easily available at breakers in Germany and I seen quite a bit of those on USA ebay.

Just made some more pipes up for the machine, I had an old two into one that rusted out. The new pipes are large volume from the junction of the headers, same as original. There is a balance pipe where the factory one was. I made fixed baffles the same method as original pipes, the main difference was bigger outlets at around 30mm. It has a good note, not too loud. The torque is more than a two into one and it seems to have more top end as well.

Wow... Your bike looks like NEW! Compliments.
About the pipes... Did you replace the full exhaust system or only the rear parts from mufflers to junction?

Dear all,

this my first post on this page.
After lookng for several years I bought a XLV 750 R from 1983 with only 27.000 km 2 weeks ago

The bike was not used for more than 4 years & there is a lot to do, but I think it is worth.

When the bike is back on the road I will let you know

I spotted two XLV750R for sell in the neighbourhood for a good price.

How are they for longer trips? MPG, reliability, spares etc

MPG is very good, like a Transalp.
XLVs are running great with enough power and godd handling even with a lot of luggage.

Reliability and spare parts are really bad! I have a few of these bikes but for longer trips I always use my 1989 Transalp!
