  1. Transalp
    Hi All, I have been looking at the requirements for ULEZ bikes, and I cannot work out if my 600 will pass or not? I called Honda and they cannot give me a CoC for the bike (too old). Has anyone had the emissions (I think it is only the NoX output that they care about?!) tested? Am I able to get...

    Hi all i’m in the middle of restoring a 1988 RD03 from Switzerland. looking for the square headlight cowl and a tank. both need to be in good condition and not in need of painting. I already have both parts but the bike has been given a crazy paint colour so it might cost me more to restore what...
  3. Africa Twin
    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...

    Hi all, I have been lucky enough to be the new owner of an 96 XRV750. As we all know there are not many here in the US and I'm excited to get her on the road. I'm working on rebuilding the motor and I can not find info on what grit of hone to use to re-ring. I have factory rings and the bores...

  9. Transalp
    I was told it was intermittent when I bought the bike, and had been checked out and nothing seen to be wrong. So, investigations were made, and I soon discovered it barely reached the contact point inside the gearbox. I’ll probably order a new one, maybe, and I didn’t want to leave the copper...

  15. Dominator / FMX
    The last 3 holidays I’ve been on I wished I could have had my trusty nx650 with me as there is no restrictions to riding off road. I’m currently in Sal, Cape Verde and hired a quad bike and had loads of fun but it’s not the same as Pepe. I wish the UK was so accessible to use on a motorcycle, we...

  17. Transalp
    Hi all, Sorry if this has already been discussed. I need to fit new front and rear tyres on my '88 Transalp. The Honda Manual says the rear tyres should be 120/90-17 on the rear and 90/90-21 on the front. However, most of the sites I've looked at for buying new tyres seem to think I should get...

    Hi, I'm looking to get some stiffer springs for a project bike (with unknown forks) and it could get expensive if I end up buying lots of different springs & rates new. It's been a little while since I had a Honda Transalp but think they might be suitable, so anyone got any old Transalp fork...
