A TDM, huh ?????? What year? Is it an 850 or a 900? I had a 93 TDM850, and it was a great bike, cept for the stock 17 inch front. Very difficult to find dual sport tires, unless you rotate a rear the other way round.

Or I guess you could mod the front to some degree and throw a 19 on it ....
That would be pretty rad!

I have a question for you guys...



I need a new rear brake disc for my RD03, but I haven't been able to find any model that uses it. CMSNL doesn't have the part, which makes me think that the part number may have changed. Anyone else have any other good resources?

Oh yea, and I'm in the US, so Im looking for US models that used the disc obviously.

Never purchased from this guy and dunno why he has this size, but it would seem to be the one for which you are searching.

Africas in Death Valley.

This weekend Andreas and I decided to take advantage of the beautiful winter weather (80 F) in Death Valley, Ca. All in all, a great time was had and the XRVs performed flawlessly.

Clean bikes before the start of the ride. Stovepipe Wells.

See the road in the background? We managed to cruise at 80MPH. I didn't have knobbies, so I kept it 80 max. Andreas had fun at 90MPH. Yikes!


Love our bikes!

On the way down to Titus Canyon

Stunning scenery

You guys look like you had a great time. Perfect weather, perfect bikes. You do know I have to follow up with an "I hate you" comment.

Hey Ladder thanks for the link. I've seen those, but the guy doesn't seem to respond to emails. Doesn't $73 seem a little cheap for a rear disc and pads?

I also found out that the rear disc has been discontinued actually, so I will see what I can find out from this guy.

Sorry I can't provide more information. My rear disc is starting to develop some hairline cracks, so I'll need a replacement soon.

Let me know what you find out.

Dunno if the price is "fair" or not. I wouldn't expect the disc to be too expensive. Pads may not be the best but you should be able to find others that would fit and be higher quality.

I believe the rear rotor on the XRV650 is the same as the XL600V (Euro model) and XL650V from 1991 all the way up to 2007.

You're right, they are. The only problem is that they're Euro models, and it looks like on eBay the only guy who sells those is the same guy who sells the XRV 650 ones. So I will wait until this guy emails me back, or I'll try calling if that takes too long and let you guys know.
