Excellent link provided there - straight into the '88-'89 AT section no less
A little extra good news (rare these days for sure), I think the Pound Sterling fell about 1.2 cents against the Dollar today... my wish list is long to make up for that.

The David Silver Spares (Header Advert of XRV.UK) link doesn't even seen to have a 650 XRV listed...

I use OEM front sprocket because of noise. Without rubber, noise is quite noticeable.
In my country aftermarket sprockets costs just few EURos cheaper then OEM, so no point to buy aftermarket ones as well.

Both wheels are same on XRV650 and XL600V, at least against my XL600V-R (1994).
Rear brake rotor and brake pads are also same between TA ant AT650, I use TA rear brake pads on XRV650 caliper.
Rear calipers are same except brake lines placement- AT have it in front, TA- in rear.

Wheel bearings I'm buying in regular bearing shops, these are standard common bearings.

I bought a 16T front sprocket for my TA. It is actually an NT650 and available here in the US. I also changed the rear signals to a shorter version from cbr600(? dont recall year)

Well.........??

Rookie Rider,

Any progress with your foreign material on the stator magnets?

Did you ever locate the source?



Heno,

Welcome.

A good first post and a great starting point. I've always liked red frames.

[QUOTE=GSPD750;16582080]Their appears to be another RDO7A in Western Canada. We literally bumped into each other when my wife and I went up to Banff recently celebrating our 22nd wedding aniversery.
It's the same year as mine and came by way of Italy and S. America where the previous owner sold it in British Columbia.




and 2 more ATs in BC next week, ...on our way to Alaska ( Cassiar Hwy). Hope to see you there Wayne


Welcome Heno the gurus on this thread and transalp mods thread are the best
