C'mon Stormforce, you can Google/translate Portuguese it is not as if you have left the Eu zone. No wait, you have.

Did you forget to use a smiley.........

I never joined the EU zone but I used to belong to the cub scouts as a nipper though

Stormforce, Sorry to keep asking but I am going to have to order a few things from you guys and I was wondering if the rear rack that you guys supply will work on an RD04, I would like to remove the original aluminum and plastic rear rack and replace it with something that is a little more user friendly, otherwise I'm going to have to make something to replace the plastic top and keep the aluminum sub frame still allowing me to attach the rear plastics.

Thanks
Keith

GSPD, Thank you for your reply, Next time I have the front end apart I will got thru the wiring and see if I can determine what model and which country my bike came from.

Thanks again for the help and all the help you have provided in the past.
Keith

The issue about the engine power for the 750 bikes is all but forgotten; my colleague who handles homologations is not in the office today, but I just asked him to let me see the original homologation papes for the RD04/07/07a; a bit more patience

Ladder, Sorry I dont speak any of those languages, hell I've even been accused of not speaking English very well either.

Anyone out there with an RD04 have modifications that they have done to their rear racks. I'm finding the original rack not very useful, it's difficult to run straps for securing anything down on it.

Thanks for any help
Keith

The rear rack for my Transalp is pretty similar to the RD04 rack.

I mounted a Givi rear rack that allows me to clip on a Givi pannier as a top case. I normally use a Marsee Bavarian tailbag (no longer made, I think) built for the GS BMW that I strap to the rack. That way you can just toss stuff into the bag and not worry about tying it down. Attach a small bungie net to the top so you can stuff odd loads on top of the bag and you've got a pretty flexible set-up.

Keith - yes it will fit either on top of them plastic rack, or direct onto the aluminium frame. If you are mounting it direct to the aluminium frame you'll need to space it by about 10mm to avoid the front bar. If you do decide to order one, just drop a note that it's for you and I'll pop some spacers in with it.

I don't mind people not posting in English but is would be nice if they let us know what language they are using.

......and be aware that translation programs can give some....errr....interesting results.
