    Yeah that would be ideal, but for now I will have to go for a less costly solution. I found a used one for 25 euros, which is acceptable even as a temporary solution (I can't use the bike right now, too risky).

    The question is this: Will an RD04 stand fit on an RD07?

    The one I found comes from a 95 model, mine is a 2000. It's the whole stand, with the triangular metal and the left peg...

    95 would be an RD07 and yours an RD07a so that should bolt on without a problem as far as I know. haven't tested it though

    I have got Transalp 650 carbs in my AT RD03, but with stock air filter engine run to rich, I've made own intake like this did a short test and it seems to work well.

    Hi.
    I believe some of the inmates here have the Ricor intiminators installed. I've had that job done (along with general front maintenance -- that's why I didn't do it myself). And now the front clunks.
    It does it even with very slight pressure, I compress the (single leg) with like 10kg small weight and when it's just about coming back up, it clunks. So I took the emulator out, and without oil and just the spring and spacer, it's just like it was, soft and smooth movement front and backwards.

    It does it with both 10W and 5W oil. I've aired the leg quite well (well, imo). Both legs (ie. both intiminators) seem to do this. The other one is out, the other is in place.
    Intiminator is installed wide part down, then the long (afaiks original) spring, then the wide plate (bushing?) and on top of that Ricor supplied spacer-tube.

    Thoughts?

    I use www.photobucket.com, up load your photo's there and copy the IMG CODE under the pic then just paste it in here.

    Not up on skydrive but if it has an IMG CODE try coping and pasting it.

    No, it is a Kevlar 07 front fender.
    But probably I will change it. My idea is to do something similar to original nxr.

    Very Nice Enrique! I like the paint job! Looks like you have done a lot of work on her!
    I've got an RD03 as well and am currently undertaking a complete restoration.
