Thank you for this site. I saw a very nice TR1 920 for the first time yesterday here in California, so researching the bike here, perhaps to find one to buy.
Currently I have a 1998 Honda ST1100 Pan European for traveling.
Previously I rode a Norton 1959 Nomad 600 twin and a Kawasaki 1975 Z1 900.
The Yamaha seems like a classic small enough for around the city but big enough to be comfortable.
Though older than yourself, born 1946, I also mourn the passing of DEC. My first desktop was a DECmate, in the days of 8 inch floppies, then a dual CPU Rainbow with hard drive and DOS.
Not a computer person, but I use them for work like everyone, and wish Digital Equipment Corp had managed to compete with MS and IBM.

Hallo, da ich seit Jahren mitlese, wird es doch nun mal Zeit mich anzumelden. Da ich schon viel von dieser Seite profitert habe, hoffe ich doch vielleicht auch ab und an mal weiterhelfen zu können.

Linker Niederrhein, 5G5 seit über 30 Jahren ( mutiert immer mehr zur TR1 - bis auf den Kardan natürlich)und noch ne SR schon etwas länger :-)

Manfred, meine absolute Hochachtung für diese super Seite. So wie ich es sehe, ist dies die beste XV/TR1 Seite.

Gruß an alle hier Günther
Danke für das Lob :-)

Hallo zusammen,
bin seit kurzer Zeit stolzer Besitzer eines Fiedler Schweden mit einem TR1 Motor. Die Seite hat mir schon bei zwei drei kleineren Sachen die entscheidenden Tipps im Bezug auf den TR1 Motor gegeben. Klasse Sache hier.

I am here in America and have had 6 XV920R´s. Raced one years ago when the AMA had BOTT races. I saw the story about Hansl´s TR1 and want to build another. I tried to use the email link to contact him for questions and couldn´t. Manfred, can you have him contact me ?

ich lebe in Berlin und fahre meine TR1 seit 30 Jahren. Es ist das 81er Modell, Ez.1983.
Nach Behebung der anfänglichen Probleme, erwies sie sich als guter und zuverlässiger Tourer (Dolomiten, Griechenland, Sardinien).
Das Abwerfen der Vergaser-Ansaugstutzen gab sich irgendwann von selbst.
Wegen der Dichtungsprobleme wurden die Zylinder gegen die des Nachfolgemodells getauscht. Auch wegen Dichtungsproblemen wurde das Fett aus dem Kettenkasten entfernt. Die Schmierung mit Kettenspray reicht aus, es ist keine Überhitzung festzustellen. Den Starter setzte ein freundliches Mitglied der TR1-Interessengemeinschaft dauerhaft instant.

My TR1 has now gone to the operation theater after 260 000 km of unbelievable trustworthy running. So as substitute i have bought a Triumph tiger 800 xrx. Its funny to com from a simple bike to a fully electronic controlled bike with ride by wire. trc. abs. cruise control. heatet grips and foog ligts. The only thing i can do now is oiling the drive chain, If i can get the weekend off i might go too the rally on it. Have a nice summer.

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.

Gruß aus dem Allgäu
