Re: Newbie

nothing particularly common, jap engine and electrics are fine, corrosion is the biggest issue on some especially if its been used in winter and not cared for too well. Regular servicing and cleaning will keep them tiptop! The Xtra has improved suspension but its not up there with the best but perfe...

Re: Hi, new member

Dont reckon they are original decals on the tank so would guess its been repaired/resprayed at some point.
Very low mileage on it too?
Where you buying from and what do you know of its history?

Re: Front brake pads

Cant help really as I have R1 brakes along with the R1 forks fitted.
The main reason I changed the calipers too is the standard brembo calipers are not the greatest and always felt a bit wooden even from new.

Re: Suspension work

I have a hagon unit on the back, much better than the original, 8 year old now and still looks new and works fine. Fully rebuildable and reasonable prices from hagon. On the front I have an R1 front forks with yam brakes and that is dramastically better than the originals. Early R1's had very compli...

Re: Tyre recommendations for Raptor 1000

the last 3 sets I have fitted have been continental contimotion, no problems in any conditions, they aint super-sticky sports rubber but cope with my normal riding over the last few years and wear pretty well too! Improved suspension makes all the differance to tyre grip so thats where the bigger mo...

Re: Rear exhaust header

defo need to drop the pipes to do the union but you dont need to take the rear stub off, maybe just loosen a little to make it easier. Give the front ones a good soak in penetrating fluid the night before and dont rush it, i have never had a problem removing mine but then again they have been off/on...

Re: Rear exhaust header

you will need to remove the pipes to get the rear stub out but are you sure its coming from the head gasket and not the join gasket where it meets the rest of the pipes? These have been known to break up and cause noise and farty stuff................ Getting access to the rear studs is a right pain...
