I've got a tricky question. I was hoping someone here would have some experience or insight.
I went for a job at a workshop. The boss was keen to hire me but he said he'd put me on a trial for a few weeks to see how I got on. He told me to bring in my tools and do a couple of days a week in the...
My ‘93 Transalp 600 was putting out 16 volts when I bought it a few months ago, and had had some meltdown in the distant last. It had an Electrexworld reg/rec on it.
This morning I fitted a brand new aftermarket reg/rec to it. Wired it up, mounted it on a nice alloy heat sink plate of my own...
This is a long shot but I figured I would give it a shot. I have a 1996 transalp in the blue/navy colour combo.
I have badly damaged my front cowl and offside front side panel.
Would anyone happen to have any fairings in this colour combo that they can sell?
If not I will have to suck...
Hi, did anyone try the rear shock of the CRF1000 on an RD07. First , will it fit dimensionally and how does it behave. I find the CRF rear suspension more comfortable and want to fit the shock on my RD07a. The CRF shock can be found relatively cheap as second hand, and saves the investment in an...
I'm the proud yet frustrated owner of a Transalp xl650v6 which I brought new in August 2007. Ever since then I've had a love hate relationship with the bike especially when it comes to maintenance and repairs.
Firstly let me admit that I am a sinner! Hailing originally from New...
The rear shock on my RD04 is really harsh at holes and bumps, and it goes thru the whole bike.
Its feels like the compression damping is too hard. I have tried to adjust it, but I can’t feel any difference.
I have 30 mm free sag, and 70 mm rider sag, so the spring should be ok. (from the...
I have just had a rebore on my 92 Donnie.
What oil should I be using to bed the rings and bore.
Should I stay away from semi synthetic?,
Should I use some cheap oil for 500 miles then change filter and oil for some semi synthetic?
Your thoughts please
Hello guys ,
i was just wondering if anyone tried to replace the rear shock from another model Honda/Yamaha..etc ?
the aftermarket is too expensive and new OEM as well . i see a lot of good rear shocks in good condition and cheap as well from other bikes
any idea ?
Thought I’d post a couple of pictures of progress so far.
I picked up a tatty FMX in March 18 and since the have been slowly rebuilding it in the style of a tracker / Scrambler hybrid.
Still lots of tidying to do but the basics are now done and I like the direction it’s going.
It’s all my...
WANTED 1995 Frame with v5. Please help me keep my old Transalp on the road I need another frame due to only being on TPF&T insurance lol
Complete bike or project considered but must be cheap. Sorry I missed out frame wanted but can't seem to alter title?
HiMy 1987 TA is using a fair bit of oil (±1L/1000km), and I want to replace valve stem seals, piston rings, and maybe the valve guides if they are worn. I have been looking around for an original top end gasket kit, and the price seems to be around £120. I have found an original set on eBay for...
I have been searching for original hanguards but refuse to pay 80 quid plus delivery for two pieces of moulded plastic. Came across these...v....v...cheap actually got them for 1.80 euro, Ill feedback when they arrive
I have recently bought a very cheap 1989 RD03.
It had been stolen, and was written of by the insurance company.
The thieves have painted it flat black, and broken some parts.
Luckily the black paint comes of quite easily, without damaging the original paint or decals, but I'm having...
Can someone explain to me why the price of a Honda C90 on ebay on most cases seems to be a lot more than a Dominator? I know people are customising both bikes but there seems to be a massive demand for the C90 at the moment. Considering its the best selling bike ever I would have thought there...
I have 2 RD04's and want to overhaul one completely (and for now use the 2th one as spare parts.
maybe I can still put it to service if I don't have to strip it down too much.the thread of a spark plug is broken anyway :/)
Purpose is to have a complete "new" AT which I can use for daily...
OK guys you know I am skint and also tight. I'm waiting on some money around July time which will see me do some costly jobs on the bike and have it back on the road for September. In the meantime I want to do cheap and free jobs. One of them is clean as much as possible.
I removed the rear...
On one of my parts hoarding trips I acquired an RD07 frame. Never needed a frame, but can't resist hoarding XRV parts. It needs blasted and powder-coated, but it seems in a pretty good overall shape. It came from a barn full of bike bits collected over years by a fellow parts hoarder...
not to be missed, got some from here last year
£99 a pair Anakee 3's
