Hi Phil,

I was just guessing. I lost apr 500 ml on 2.000 km so I filled it back to max with the ATF. The year after I just replaced the whole lot for fresh Motul 10W40 half synt. That was in 2003. 7 years and 75.000 km later (My wife took over the bike in 2004) there is still no oil spill so I guess the stuff works...

On the XLV I have just added about apr a coffee mug of ATF to the oil after I did the oil change. But: I haven't registered any oil spill which is out of the Marge... Consider that one as 'preventive measure'...

ATF seems to be teflon based. There is also an adding based on Nano-technology from which I have read many good experiences. This product is called Rewitec, website: http://www.rewitec.com/oe2edit/?site=001&language=en

Note: I don't have any experiences with this product, but it seems to be just as good as ATF...

I like my wine red & dry. Prefer a good, solid South African Pinotage. Any harvest will do. Any blend with Siraz, Merlot as well.

The End Is Near...

Finally. Finally I found time to proceed the restoration of my '84 MK1 XLV750R which I started so enthusiast 3 years ago... (see many postings back...) The entire wiring is back on place, and I added a new layer of spray-paint on the black steering bar.

This spring its going to happen: the XLV will be back on (and off... ;) ) the road again!

I will try to add a few more pics of this mega-project soon. Must admit that I have underestimated the time and efforts needed to put a full scale motorcycle restoration on track with near to zero knowledge about motorcycle mechanics. But I've been learning a lot - that was one of the most rewarding pro's of this project!

Yeah, I've got a stickied up inside one with RAD shockies' name written on it already, they said they could fix it and I was going to send it, but I went and bought a Bitubo shock instead ...
I can't remember if it still has the adjusty lever on it or if it has snapped off.

Yours for a song.

OK,if anyone puts on or has one on their bike,can you tell me what spring type/settings you have on a non-standard shock on the XLV. Dont ever dump a used one either as they can be redone simply and cheaply. As a situation I have at present I will probably think of selling a new technoflex unit that I 'm installing in my unit and going back to the reconditioned old one as the spring is probably the wrong one,bit hard for me to tell.
