I like the look of it - but I agree that the MRA will probably offer better protection against wind & weather.
Damn your right. You know..it's all about color coodinating your outfit.
I have 3 screens now and with only 6 screws they are easy to whiz on and off. Mmmm....what should i wear today.

I really like how the RD07 rear panels and tail fit on the RD04/03 frame
What ??

Really??

The RD03/04 frame just has a different rear subframe bolted on. Other than that I think it's identical to my Transalp frame.

Do you mean that I can add the RD04 subframe and then RD07 sidepanels and rear fender? Do brackes have to be made to do this?

It can't be just a bolt-up.....Can it ??(fingers crossed)

I don't know to be honest Ray - but I doubt it. The Italians have a knack for this kinda stuff



Will be having a play with RD07A Rear side panels, and rear fender etc over the next couple of weeks, on an RD03 frame - will report back with pics

Trip Master

G'day guys. I am an Aussie in the USA and was wondering if anyone had a lead for me on a new outer housing for a trip master. I had a guy get mine back to working perfect but the plastic casing is deteriorated and although quite readable is covered in the spider web looking pattern. Cheers

No spare parts for the AT anywhere in the US as far as I know.

Sourcing from across the atlantic is likely your best option.

I can confim that its an easy fit to put RD07a side panels and tail unit on an RD03 frame, there on my new build at the moment but I may revert to modified RD03 panels and modify the RD07a tail - will post up pics soon,,,,,

These pics are from a build thread over on MCATI - aside from the superb paint job I really like how the RD07 rear panels and tail fit on the RD04/03 frame

not only on your smugmug, also on xrv.org!
for me this is the best looking @ this year, we should made a award for the "Custom Twin of the year"!

" MCATI - aside " - ???, don't know.

Reidy, I have an RD07a, 1999. The top of my trip master was looking bad too, looked like it had been out in the sun too much.

On looking closer, the top of the trip master had a thin clear coating, which was what was crazing. I rubbed it down with some fine 3M Scotchbrite - the gray one , Ace Hardware - and once I got the old coating off, the plastic polished up just fine.

A final coat of wax, and she's apples....you might give it a go.

Cheers Mate

Thanks for the tip there I will give it a try. I believe you are correct in it being what looks like the clear coat sun worn.

What is the sequence to reset the trip master clock guys?
