  4. Wanted: RD08 Dommie Rear Rim

    For Sale / Wanted
    Does anyone have a spare rear rim (17x2.50) that they are selling? I have stripped my wheels down ready for powder coat and found that there is an area around the tyre valve, where the outer surface is starting to de-laminate. Colour is not an issue as i'm having the Hubs and Rims powder coated

  7. Transalp 650 gaiter replacement

    Transalp
    How easy is it to take the front forks off to replace the gaiters- mine are in a sorry state. It's not so much the taking off as putting back correctly so as not to muff up the handling?

  10. spare key

    Transalp
    I bought my Transalp in February with only one set of keys. I wanted to have spare so I contacted Motoden Honda and they quoted me £60 for a blank key that I still have to go and cut. It seems extortionate, so I wanted to ask is there any other way to get the spare done? Thanks
  11. XR and XL 250 which parts are compatible? which parts can donate from XR to XL 250

    XL
    So I have an XL250R and just realised how bloody awful it is to source parts, so I'm looking for donar bikes that have the same parts list, first and obvious choice is the bigger brother the XR250. Anyone know how similar these two are and if anyone has crossbred them already?

  13. 89AT seat question

    Africa Twin
    I was wondering if the seats are interchangeable between an 1989 xrv650 and the 89/90 US. transalp? Been looking for another seat and got a lead on one the owner said would fit the AT. My bikes are in another state so I can't compare them but he has a corbin that was on his 89 Alp. Thanks
  14. High Beech Tea Hut under threat !

    Chatter
    I like tea. This time thirty years ago, I was probably drinking tea and chatting with like minded motorcyclists at the High Beech Tea Hut. Future generations of us & them might not be so fortunate to benefit from the convivial facility. Save High Beech Tea Hut !

    Chatter

  17. sump guard bit folded in

    Africa Twin
    Ok...stupid question, but I am a curious bugger.. I have used an AT sump guard on my alp and it fits just fine, however there is a small section which has been made into a flap and folded in...can you guys illuminate me as to its function on the @... it seems to be harmless/useless on the TA R.
  18. universal silencer?

    Transalp
    Anybody had any experience with any of the universal type silencers for 650 Transalp? Specific versions are extortionate but pattern universal seem one fifth of the price... Not interested in performance but a bit more bark for when filtering might be nice to avoid the SMIDSY syndrome... Regards

    Transalp
    On striping down my 1987 600's rear suspension I noticed only one of the three metal inserts in the rubber bushes will rotate (the one with the grease nipple) is this correct or should all three rotate ?
