  1. XL
    Hi, I am new to his forum and this xl600lm is my first Honda for a while, I am trying to find out wtf bodywork is fitted to this bike I just bought. Its had new paint but I cannot find any details about this headlight/fairing unit. Hope someone can throw some light on this bike, regards,,
  2. Ride Reports and Pictures
    A couple of pics (avoiding the bins) of my new Transalp beastie after this morning's thunderstorm. Shot around Colchester UK - Garrison Church, a victorian wooden colonial style building now owned by the Russian Orthodox Church. And at Bourne Mill built in 1591. Cleaned out the crappy...
  3. Dominator / FMX
    Parked the bike this morning at a friends house. As we were talking inside, we heard their 11 yr old niece screaming. We run out and my bike's on its side with her hobbling and screaming. Turns out she tried to climb on it, opposite the sidestand and it fell in her. Dommies are lightweight but...
  4. Transalp
    I nearly bought a Transalp when they first came out. But didn't. Loved the look of it though. Now, I've just bought a 2004 Transalp. Question: does old style bodywork from the original fit a 2004 or has the frame changed as well as the bodywork on the later ones. It's not such a stupid question...
  5. For Sale / Wanted
    I have a full set of used RD03 bodywork and a used RD03 tank for sale. Please note I have no headlight grill for sale. All panels / tank are on original paint. All parts were kept as a spare.
  6. Africa Twin
    A friend of mine wants to sell out most of his RD04 rallye parts (>30L rear tank, front tank, all of the bodywork, front suspension and wheel, tripmaster and roadbook holder, etc..) and turn the bike into a supermoto (dont ask why). Anyone interested from this forum in the whole kit or some...
  7. For Sale / Wanted
    I have a complete bike here in Ireland,bodywork is not great. Bike was bought in boxes and I've sunce resprayed the frame and rebuilt the engine with a new output shaft. Will consider selling complete if I get what I have into it
  8. Transalp
    My Italian is, shall we say less than perfect, but if I understand the text enough, then this 1991 Transalp has got a new custom made rear subframe and the bodywork is made of fiberglass. I can imagine my self plotting around on twisty roads on a simillary scramblerized Transalp.
  9. Africa Twin
    I have the Dreaded Rim Rot ,Can anyone offer advice for the best wheel rebuilds??? as am thinking of replacing with gold rims as i think they will look much better against red white and blue bodywork.....
  10. Africa Twin
    Do I remember correctly that with one version of the alp that the bodywork was interchangeable?
  11. Transalp
    Any of you knowledgeable ones able to explain to me how to deduce which colour corresponds to the Transalp parts secret code ? I seek the knowledge of blue bodywork for an XL650V1 2001 UK model ... body bits 19 & 20, as shown above (grrr ... f'in'reversin'4wd'ers).
  12. Transalp
    Hi all!. I`m new here. I`ve had my Alp for about a yr now and absolutely love it!. Did wales last yr, Scotland and Eire this yr. Unfortunatly had an off in Eire and bent the bars and snashed the hand guard (r/h). A few scuffs and scrapes to the bodywork, but fortunatly the panniers took most of...
  13. For Sale / Wanted
    I want to keep running my XT250 long term so I'm after just about anything that might help me do that, from engine bits to bodywork to whatever! I know it's a long shot that parts might be hanging around so I could be interested in an incomplete or even a complete bike, if it's at the right...
  14. Africa Twin
    Hi would someone be kind enough to Photoshop the wheel rims of my @ in anodized blue to match the bodywork .i am about to send my wheels off to RXF whels, but now tihnking whether i go down the bluew rim route rathr than silver?
  15. Transalp
    Hi all, I have to wheel my bike out through a narrow garden gate in the mornings and have subsequently snapped the stem of both my rear indicators over time. No real worries there as the wonders of gaffa tape sort that problem. However - the indicators are on a very long stem! Would it be...
  16. Africa Twin
    Hi all! So I've removed all the bodywork to give me access to the bolts holding the ignition barrel and switch in place. All I need to do is remove the bolts..... Unfortunately, none of the tools I've got seem to want to work. Is there a factory tool or a secret technique that I'm missing? All...
  17. Africa Twin
    Is this right? They touch the side panels at the front on the inside of the panel. Any body else had this? I reckon to stop any distortion I will undo the lower panel bolt. Not gonna go anywhere is it?
  18. Transalp
    Does anyone who has experience of old and new Transalps know how feasible it would be to put a 600's bodywork onto a 650? I really loved my old 600 Transalp, but there are a lot of nice clean-looking 650s around that are probably a better investment. Trouble is, while the 650 looks like a great...
  19. Africa Twin
    Hey guys, Have a chance to get manufactured the front narrow Africans Queens rally bodywork. :thumbup: This would be made out of fibreglass rather than carbon, yep it would be a bit heavier, yep it’d be muuuch cheaper :blob5: The Czech manufacture would be happy to accept an order, but they...
  20. XR
    Hi All Newbie old git's first post. My new (to me) XR400 is a nightmare to start hot & cold. Reckon a shortness of leg has quite a bit to do with this. I've ordered a Rev Max CDI to see if that helps (I'll post once installed) and will then go for the Mikuni pump carb if starting issues...
