Afternoon. My first post here.
Just acquired a scruffy 2002 Transalp 650. However, all seems reasonably sound with history etc.
However, clutch seems very heavy, even with new cable. Before I dismantle, any thoughts please?
Perhaps just bunged up with crud from the past 36,000 miles?
I would like to replace my coolant hoses on my RD03. Honda parts are NLA. I was reviewing threads about the Samco or other aftermarket hoses and found threads that stated that some hoses were incorrectly sized.
Those hose kits are pretty dear. Can't see paying that much for parts that are...
I have a set of headers that were sold to me as for a 600. they came as a complete exhaust with the standard muffler. But the front pipe is clearly set for a 650. However there is no catalytic converter. Am I right after research that they will be from the very early 650 before 1992?. Please...
I’m pretty sure all the above use the same basic frame, so the dimensions i’m after should be the same.
Could someone with a Swing-Arm from one of these measure the front pivot width. That would be the outer width, i.e. the width required in the frame and also the inside width, i.e. the width...
Insured, taxed and dragged out of my brothers pigeon loft where it's been resting since early September last year (shocking, I know...) after a 24hr charge, dust the bloom of, kick the tyres, prime the carb & she started first prod.
Yay, great to be back out on an Alp [emoji41]

Paid the Ardnamurchan peninsular a visit on Friday, seeing as how Rederic of ABR forum had organised a little gathering at Strontian.
Took the long way there via the Lecht, Glenshee, Pitlochry and Glencoe - no worthwhile photo’s from any of those locations – but I took a few from on the busy...

Had a bit of a nightmare yesterday after installing new pistons reassembling the heads and getting the engine back in the frame quite nicely disaster struck. When torquing down the small 6mm bolt in the cylinder head it snapped like a bit of cheese. As usual this was the last bolt.
To fit a...
I need a new screen and after lots of searching around I have found the one shown in below.... I now need to know where I can buy this exact same screen from. Any suggestions please? Advance Thanks
I've just won this ebay auction for a CT90 needing a bit of work. I'm after peoples thoughts on if they think it's a good deal, and anything I should check when I go to collect? It was a bit of a last minute impulse buy.
Thanks in advance,
I am ordering some connectors to renew and modify parts of the wiring loom on my 1988 RD03, but I can not seem to find connectors for the CDI. Does anyone have a reasonably priced lead on these?
Also, I am at work in Scotland right now, so I can't look at the wires for my self, but from the...

Does anyone know the standard spring rate for the rear shock?
Or has anyone fitted an aftermarket shock and know what the spring rate is for their set-up?

Has anyone out there got an un-wanted centre stand for a 600 Alp (mines a '98 model, but earlier ones should fit)?
Checked with that excellent source of new Honda parts, David Silvers, and apparently the stand is no longer available.
The after market availability of a stand is very patchy as...
