I just decided last year to run my Transalp completely out of oil... not on purpose..
Quick explanation of my idiocy.. Drove last year at full speed and pressed the old lady beyond all limits on a trip to Vordingborg, to participate in the Danish championship in Enduro (not on the Transalp) At the race, I broke my wrist and had to leave the race.
But time passed and the arm was whole again, and when I was able to ride the Transalp again.. Well, then I forgot all about the wild ride to Vordingborg. When I press the bike so hard, I know very well that it uses oil, but I had forgotten all about it, because of the broken arm... So when I was able to ride it again, it rattled a lot. But I had earlier that year cracked a bolt that held my aluminium mud shield in place, so I actually thought it was that, that made the noise..I was tired of the noise and removed the mud shield.. After that, it was even noisier and I could notice that the oil warning light did not work and my engine was ran out of oil and destroyed..
I have found a XRV650 RD03 engine from 1989, and wonder if its possible to built over on the Transalp.
Has anyone tried to move a XRV650 RD03 engine into a XLV600 PD06 ? .. Does it fit right over, or must I make a lot of modifications?
I will begin to separate the Transalp along during this week, the engine has go anyway. If anyone has any advice, experiences or tips and tricks or anything, please let me know.
