bars

  1. Transalp
    I remember a post recently about front end wobble on a TA....more specifically, I think it was on a 700, and various owners seemed to think it was almost inevitable... Anyway, in the interests of security I have two U Locks- one is a Kryptonite New York mini, which weights in at a shade over...

    Hi, Please can somebody tell me: I am repainting the aluminium rack as the paint had flaked off. Should it be gloss black or mat black? Gloss would match the plastic top part as it's shiny but maybe gloss will be too shiny? Same question for the black handle bars- should they be mat black or...

    I have finally received my new starbars ready for fitting at the weekend. Question I have is this....the original bars have holes for the instruments, do I drill new ones or remove the bits that slot into the holes on the instruments? cheers in advance

    just if anyone is interested, over the winter i changed the complete front end of my TA700 with the USD front end from a 97/00 Aprila pegaso, and it was quite an easy swap, just had to change the bearings on the yoke shaft, modify the top yoke to accept the ignition switch & hiss, and fabricate...

    My AT has a set of bars on that are too short for the handgrips(a cheap quick replacement by the previous owner). I have the originals but they are slightly bent, so rather than powder coating them, I was lookig at the Renthal Enduro high bars. Question is...will the original bar ends and...

    Hello This post is for those who bought their RD07/07A new from dealers back then when they were still in production. :rolleyes: I'm curious about original add-on parts from Honda: were there any? Crash bars, luggage racks, anything else? Have You ever seen any Honda catalogues with original...

    Just dropped my AT today at slow rolling speed and thanks to those Rugged Road crash bars any serious damage was prevented. But the right one took a substantial hit and it absorbed all the force which resulted in it being slightly bent inwards. Is it possible to bend it back? I will post some...

    Hi Folks I know there's a post on this from quite a few years back- but just wanted to see if other people have had the same problem as me and what solutions worked for them. I'm trying to fit the RR crash bars to my RD04 - got all the brackets fitted - but when it comes to attaching the bars...

    Hello, I have been off this forum for a few years as I traded my 700 Alp for a 650GS and then a CRF250M, but have decided now as there is nothing as good as a Transalp, I had to go back to the one I loved! Received my 55 plate XL650V today in the snow, and have started looking at what needs...

    This is a strange one... When I start the bike on the side stand and use choke the bike idols around 1200rpm, BUT if i lean the Bike over untill it’s level then the revs climb to 2500-3000rpm. This only happens with the choke on. when I’m moving the bike on or off the side stand the handle...

    Hei, So I just recently bought an AT RD07A, traded up from an older Transalp. I enjoyed the last few months of the season although I knew work needed to be done on her. So new wheels bearing FandB, brake calipers overhauled, new chainset, new tyres and a well needed service all carried out. I...

    Hi all, i have been looking at getting some crash bars fitted to my XL650 v Transalp but was hoping for some advice as to what make or type to get. I have managed to find the following two makes which seem to offer good protection to the upper parts of the bike ( the expensive bits ) Does...
  19. What's it worth?
    As above, these are all I have left, sob, sob! They are all used, the bars and stand could use a spruce up but, the box is good and comes with all the mounting kit and keys. It matches the bike and looks really smart. A rough guide price would be great as would any offers before the eBay...
