The rocky rutted sections are very similar to my immediate riding area. Limited though it is, you have to be very much on your game to get a bit trailie through those sections.

I also had to remember that it never looks as steep on camera as it truly is.

Impressive riding.

The last time the Dakar was held in europe/africa (2004 IIRC) early sections went through Portugal. I remember thinking that is was a great place for off-road riding and wondering if areas like that were open or were only used with special permission for the Rallye.

Sprocket Carrier Bearing

I've got my wheels taken down for a bit of PM and it feels like my sprocket carrier bearing is on the way out. Axle bearings are fine. Does anyone have an alternate US part # for the sprocket bearing? I believe the UK part # is 6204-2RS1/C3. I'm also looking at replacing the seal as well, but I don't have the part number for that. I'm wondering if the WR650R bearings will work.

Take your bearing for a match to:

Whisler Industrial Supply

Much cheaper.

Thanks Jim! This is my first bearing job, but I figure I'll replace them all while I'm at it. Is there an easy way to drive all the bearings out of the hub? The XRVforum 'push the sleeve aside and drive the bearing out with a drift' method isn't working for me. I can't get it moved aside enough to get a good bite. Maybe I need a new brass drift.

I used to have a bearing tool.

My notes tell me the sprocket bearing is 6204-2RSH/C3 for RDO3/4/7 which are already sealed. Use a quality Japanese bearing such as SKF. Watch out for a cheap China version.

For pulling i like to use a blind bearing puller...or a slide hammer set up. A brass drift can work to. For installation put the bearing in the freezer prior to installing after heating the hub with a heat gun. It should just drop right in with light taps. If you have to hammer in a sealed bearing during installation such as this one then you are doing it wrong and risk damage and will only be replacing it again shortly down the road.

Swingarms for an RD07 seem readily available...for an RD03 you may have to search a little harder.

You should be able to find what you need in/near Greece.

Africa Twin RD04 Fuel Tank: Stock or Non-Stock

AT Members: I've scanned the AT forums and Internet sites for an application of the bolt mounts on my AT's fuel tank. They appear to be uncommon and I would like to learn if this is a stock fuel tank or an after-market fuel tank. I don't think the mounts are for a map pocket or panel. Could the mounts possibly be for an aftermarket air intake or snorkel? Please reply if you can confirm if this is a Honda OEM tank or an aftermarket tank. Sorry for the poor quality of the images. Thanks in advance! Splash

Hy, did not find any rd03 swingarm in ebay.gr, de, co.uk ,at etc. only one in. it but do not like it :(

The tank looks to be from a rally/marathon africa twin (made by Honda) , late 80'2, early 90's. There you would fit the map, and other stuff. It is original from HRC. you got something there

Indeed it could be an original Africa Twin Marathon tank, if so... where the hell you find it? Would be nice to have some more photos, though!

Gian/raoulserban: Hello and thank you for your replies. Well, your responses are interesting since the motorcycle also has a stock-looking crossbar to reinforce the fairing & windshield, a cut-out of the air-filter on the left side panel for easy access/replacement, rear brackets to mount small leather 80's-ish toolbags off the rear subframe and headlight grill/guard mount. It would be interesting to learn if this specific Italian Africa Twin motorcycle participated in any rally racing.... not sure if that would be good for longevity of the engine. Btw, did HRC include any performance upgrades on XRV750 rally motorcycles? Thanks again! Splash
