    Hi all...

    I make my own rally fairing. And I need dimensions of "Aluminium front frame". Exactly what I need is position of headlight. Can someone help me with this?

    making similarly to this:
    http://www.ruggedroads.co.uk/shop/a...r7qQc1GJoab&shop_param=cid=29&aid=B-CRLC8892&

    And I want to have same position of head light. Can someone measure that for me?

    When I finish my bike, I will show to you whole my progress. Greetings :wave

    RD04 is up to 1993. This rim is from 1998. It can be for Transalp, or RD07..
    I konow that all AT have 32 holes?! For Transalp, I do not know..

    And rd03, rd04 have gold rims. Few rd07 also. But later rd07 got gray rims.

    I bought it 3 years ago when it came with a spare hub for my 18''.
    I dont need it and i wasn't sure if this is for RD04, sure its not for RD07.

    Maybe I should ask on transalp forum.

    ? Honda SLR650, NX650, Dominator ?

    Hi Moskow,

    rd04 had golden rims with 17x2,75. This one could belong to a Honda XL600V Transalp from 1996 up to 2000 (last year of pd06 and all pd10). They had / have 17x2,5 in silver.
    Forgot 2 mention: 32 spokes are correct for transalp too.
    Greetings
