    Just checked my pics from the auction. It did not have the scoops there either.

    Hey Steve. Shot you a PM.

    Thanks Sharkey, just what I was looking for!

    Anybody got a source for the rear turn signals?

    G'day Steve,

    Cannot say I know of it. Maybe post a query in the oz honda thread in Regional - Australia directory.

    I ordered the parts fiche from the local dealer on Wednesday. I checked with them today & Honda has not regretted it (yet..) so fingers crossed it's on the way.
    Failing that, I've located a company about 70km (45 Miles?) away who can convert my Parts Microfiche to CD-rom (pdf files). Anyway, hopefully I can tell you either way next week some time.

    Cheers

    Thanks Thunder Dan

    I was able to down load copies of the manual and a parts list via Sharkey. They came out well so I'm in good shape.

    I'm not able to find the correct rear turnsignals and airfliter in the US however.

    Hi Steve

    For turn signals, try xl600r. they share part numbers.

    Thanks Oscar, The fronts looked the same to me, I'll check the rear.

    The part number I have is 33550-MG7-601/750/602

    Here are the XL600R parts


    These have the -10 and -11 adaptor that takes a TA style signal. Could work! The ones on my bike are one piece with the longer stud

    Here is a picture of an after market item from FleaBay and from a honda parts list

    The aftermarket one's are too floppy, not enough support.

    Struck out at the local Honda Dealer today.

    The -10 and -11 parts for the XL600 are no longer available. I may have to make my own.

    Steve you're right. The stalk on the XL600R is shorter. Hmm... Close but no cigar. If you come up with a solution keep us posted. I'll do the same on my end.

    Might be a couple of XLV's coming on the market in Australia, good nick with about 30,000K's on each one, any interest?

    Just too far away for me. Maybe I need a vacation?

    Hi All,

    I'm still working to rebuild my '84 RD01 but the carburettor pair is unfortunately that much clocked with dirt that it can't be cleaned any more...

    The original is rather expensive (if available in first place...) and there fore I'm looking for an substitute... Which one could do the trick? In fact I only need the carburettor housing; I can move all the parts and needles from the original into the new housing.

    The question I have:
    - Which Honda Carburettor (or Carbhousing) can be used as affordable substitute?
    - Perhaps a MK1 Transalp (till 1990 - from 1991 the carburettor is changed resulting in less power - the MK1 XL600V Transalp has 55 Bhp, the MK2 (> 1991) only 48)
    - Or one of the earlier Africa Twin models, f.e. the XRV650?
    - Other alternatives?

    My RF (1985) version still runs faultless. I just love it, and desperate to get his older brother back on the road too. I'm hoping to get the info's I need from you guys...

    Greetings

    Perhaps wrong suggestion but...did you look at carbs on "donor" of XLV engine? VT750 cruiser? I have no idea if they will be same or suitable, I just think those must be easily available at breakers in Germany and I seen quite a bit of those on USA ebay.
