Looks a lot like mine, thought it was single bulb? That three prong bulb there must be an H4. Honda has used bulbs on some bikes that were NOT H4s but had three tabs. Mostly they were 35/35W bulbs, my ST1100 had them. On that bike you needed adaptor rings to hold the H4s in position, and you had to bend back one tab. So basically the mounting aligning tabs were different than H4.

On my bike the H4s fit exactly in, nothing special needed.

What exactly is the difference in yours from H4, no idea what a 'Honda candle light' is either. Wait, are you talking about yellow bulbs? I've seen RD03s with yellow lighting and France is famous for yellow headlights which up until recently were the norm. I wouldn't think they'd need to make a different housing/bulb mount though to go yellow.

Washed the bike today. Took some pictures before it became too dirty again.

rd03 xrv 650

best adventure bike ever made. The suspension could be changed to suit the load, the tank was 25 litres (i think) the screen offered wind protection, the reliability was without peer, the engine was underpowered but sturdy and a twin, the seat was comfortable, breaks were good and it was electric start.
I bought mine from yamaha city in melbourne (second hand) i then travelled the outback, i then sold it to a pom who travelled about 6 thousand kms, then bought it back and sold it on again. I now think that it maybe the bike i travel o/s on on my next trip.......first i have to buy one......

Have one on my BM, and it works, but not as good as simply tightening the thottlecable assembly on the AT- Yes, the throttle then always stick, but I like it that way

RD03 and RD04 crashbars

Are there any big differences between RD03 and RD04 crashbars? For RD03 are not easy to get ones... I guess, differences should be minimal and with little adaptation (if any) RD04 ones should fit also on RD03?

Anyone run soft bags on the AT muffler? It does get very hot, shame the heat shield isn't longer, wider...

Muffler under bags will get even more hot.. Usually very simple rack-frame is made between bike and bags. Such rack will also prevent from scratching paint on fairing on other side of bike when bags are moving.

Thanks!

The color of dark blue and white is from the original color of the RD03, shasta white and space blue, the stripes are made out of sticker foil.

All the decals are scaned from stickers I found on ebay and reproduced by a decals specialist. The number plates are hand made with MS Paint and also printed by a specialist.
