I think, you disc is junk now. On my friend's RD03 it is flat.

So my question is, is the OEM disc meant to be that way? I can't imagine my caliper has warped it into that shape... but it looks so uniformly offset... I have had one guy tell me that these are meant to be this way, and another guy swear that RD03 front discs should be flat and it looks like mine has dished from overheating... Which one is it?

XRV folding brake pedal

Hello,

Bought one brake pedal off Germany Ebay... Hmm, it was not folding anymore, but was welded. OK, I thought, owner didn't like that feature and welded it in one peace... Bought one more for start price and... ...hell, it was welded again! Picture was not enough close in auction and I didn't expect also such a thing... Hmm, seems that this is some regulation on Germany for street bikes? On friend's RD03, which is from Italia, pedal is left foldable.
Any ideas?

And a return spring like on the pegs or the pedal part will be folded back all the time. Maybe that's why the German government said weld it.

Until now you could type in a part number and the website would return all bikes that used the same part. It worked great for crossreferencing parts.

This feature seems now eliminated.

Any ideas for any other website that is able to do the same?

Yea I noticed that a couple months ago when I was trying to cross reference some parts. That was one of the best features of that site.

exhaust

Hi all,

Did anyone tamper with their stock exhaust on their RD07? messing with the silencer, is it removable from the stock exhaust? I only see welded spots.

A throatier sound would be great... but would "perforating" stock silencer interfere with existing performance?

At this point, just wondering...

Do any of you AT guys know the stock spring rate for the RD04 shock?

Ricor is talking about building their IAS shocks for the AT and I'll probablly test the prototypes.

We need a spring rate to start with.

Thanks in advance and I'll let every know what's happening with this project.

MUST SEE PART 2 (or maybe even Part #)

Having two of these three (and lusting after the S10) makes this very interesting for me......OK....maybe having 1 3/4 of these since my AT is still pretty much a Transalp.

.......more?.......

I can also say that my RD03 front disc is flat. I cannot imagine why it would not be flat unless some grave error in design demanded it and that doesn't sound Japanese. Maybe on a Ducati...

Also, my brake lever has always been welded. No idea the country this model was meant for, perhaps Japan originally. It has no joint as shown here, simply a steel 'half circle' welded on the lever.

My shifter on the other hand does fold back with a spring.

For what it's worth I never knew a folding on existed, mine is unlike those shown as I say never was a joint on it.

For more data, my bike appears to have gone down one time no the right side, so it is possible the original brake lever was replaced and the original folded, I'll never know.

More data - I can see the small gouges where the original brake lever pushed into the edge of the aluminum bellypan when the bike went down, so it likely didn't fold :-)

Rear Rack

Hey Guys,

What are you guys using for a rear rack. I have a 90Litre Bag that tends to hang over the edges a bit on the standard Rear Rack.
