I had been a member of the site a few years back but lost the information. I have two 1981 xv920rh´s one which is painted in the 82rj colours and the other is the stock red colour.
The one in the 82 colours is running and has 52,000klms on it.
Looking forward to some fun on B.C. roads again.
Cheers Ken S.

Hi all, I have got a 1983 5a8 model as of now it`s done 6700miles only. I have had it for 2 years & have been recomissioning it back to as new ,front mudguard rechromed, carbs ultrasonically cleaned,seviced the forks, renewed the brakes and fitted braided brake hoses,I have entered 2 bike shows & it will be shortly featured in a English magazine called "Classic motorcycle & mechanics" The tester was a famous bike journalist called John Nutting, The photographer was Joe Dick, the pictures he took made my bike look amazing, When I get them I will try to upload some for you,
I love your website & should hopefully become a frequent contributor
Regards Steve

I own a 1981 XV920rh. Bought it new at Kunkle Motors in Dallas Pa. I put Progressive Front springs mono shock, Lockhart oil cooler, fork brace, and stainless steel line. Bike has 11k on it and is in perfect shape. They are very rare and I enjoy those special rides. The starter has been shimmed but it´s still clanks, hitachi carb experts are hard to find and bike backfires on roll off. Been that ways since day one. I use Amsoil, and do my ritual of draining carbs at end of season, WD 40 all vulnerable parts including exhaust. Red in color engine# 218. I enjoy your web page, Pat

sold on this site when viewing recent rally.Bought my XV1000 in Brisbane Australia oct 81 and it has served me well all these years with very little work required.I have not seen any reason to replace it.I bought another recently in need of a lot of TLC to restore so will be seeking knowledge of TR1 owners to complete tasks i have not experienced on my other bike :-)

Amazing site, people, and resource. Regretfully no German skills on my part. I have begun resurrection of a 40,000 mile XV920RH. It has been sitting 7-10 years.
Bike was purchased by a friend in the 80s, sold to another friend, who "sold" it to his son. Parked in back of garage.
Purchases to date battery, fork seals (appear to have leaked badly), fork boots, brake pads, front wheel bearing kit, master cylinder kit, brake lines, grips, petcock rebuild kits, vacuum hoses and gas line, spark plugs, air filter, oil filters, H4 bulb, shop manual..
Carburetor appear to be cleaning up nicely. Calipers need help.
Gas tank was sealed at some point. Chain appears recent. Changing previous owner´s handle bar. Maybe bar end mirrors.
Expect to change tires for safety´ s sake.
WORRIED about seat comfort and rear shock. And possible surprises.
lol, choosing oil. May try Shinko tires.
With luck should be enjoying riding by the end of March.
Thank you for information and encouragement.

Seit 1995 haben wir eine XV 750 SE in unserem Fuhrpark.
Sie hat mittlerweile eine Laufleistung von 130000 km und wird immer noch gerne
für Langstrecken- und Transporteinsätze benutzt.
Ich würde nun gerne die Tourentauglichkeit noch verbessern und die Fußrasten
etwas zurückbauen. Zusammen mit einer Sitzbank ohne Chopper-Kuhle und einem
flacheren Lenker müsste das doch eine klassisch englische Sitzhaltung ergeben.

Ich habe mir die TR 1 als zweit-Maschine gekauft und hege Sie nun ständig als Lieblingsmaschine bei mir. Hatte als erste eine Honda CX 500. Habe diese vor einigen Jahren wieder verkauft und nun NUR meine TR 1! Ich hab sie in diesem Jahr vom Chopperumbau auf Original mit allen Erneuerungen (Bremsleitungen, Lenklager, Öldämpfer,Lenker u.s.w.) zurückgebaut. Sieht toll aus! Meine TR 1 hat jetzt 52´Km drauf ist Erstzulassung 02.09.1981 und läuft suuuuppeeeerrrr! Ist eine 5A8 mit der Nummer 003410. Viel Spaß Euch allen vom TR 1 Reini

Hallo zusammen. Letzte Woche Freitag,02.05.14 traf ich per Zufall einen angefressenen TR1 Freak hier in Kapstadt.Er besitzt 15 fahrbereite!!.Wenn er September-October Zeit hat, (macht komplett Restaurationen vom feinsten) schweisst er mir einen Edelstahl Auspuff und macht am Motor Feintuning.Seit meinem letzten Eintrag kam ich leider erst auf weitere 34000km, inclusive 2 mal die komplette Gardenroute. Gruss Sigi

Bin seit 15 Jahren begeisterter TR1 Fahrer, die Maschine hat mich nie im Stich gelassen und ich brauche keinen anderen Tourer.
