  1. Transalp
    Hello all, My tranny just died while out in spain, the con rod snapped appaently! I have my eye on a 1996 PD06 engine to replace the old one. I hear that the 1996 engines had a "new whole electronic (TCI) ignition system (new ignition unit, new impulse ignition coils, new ignition advance...
  2. Photography
    Am I worrying too much? DSLR and small prime lens in a tail bag strapped to the back seat? I'd love to combine my bestest things to do - bikes and photography - but too nervous to take the camera. Not in case I drop the bike or anything, just vibrations and general bouncing about on the back...

  4. Transalp
    Hi folks....I managed to track down an original centre stand for my TA. It's in pretty good shape. I've not fitted it yet, but I've a question for anyone in the know: on the microfiche parts pic, along with the stand & springs etc. it shows an additional 'arm' and a couple of 'clips'...I'm...
  5. XL
    Recently rebuilt a 1980 CT125, had high rev misfire, ( similar to "4 stroking") appeared to be due to cam shaft journal wear "bouncing" the points so had bearings made and fitted, still had a misfire which stopped when the advancer was locked, Someone previously had welded the original advancer...
  6. Mechanical Advice
    Hi I'm experiencing some rough running whilst the engine is ticking over I think it's referred to as hunting, it also seems to miss fire occasionally on a steady throttle at around 2000 rpm with a soft sort of wet fart backfire on the overrun. Can anyone put there finger on a reason for these...

    I've just returned from a few days in Bruges.... wonderful city, well worth a visit (and the Belgian beer's good too!). the young person's transport of choice appears to be.... ... it's essential that a sporty exhaust can, sans baffle, is fitted! You can hear them coming half-a-mile away ;)...
  9. Africa Twin
    I am asking about front brake pads for XRV 650... For touring, off road use and city riding do you recommend organic brake pads or sintered? I like to ride at fast speeds [as fast as a 650 can go]..Thank you in advance..:p

  11. Africa Twin
    I've Had my Rdo7 coming on 3 years and have never touched it as runs like a swiss watch, The fuelling is nigh on perfect I would say for carbs. But is it possible to get an absolute linear tick over or am I being too anal as it is very slightly uneven?
  12. For Sale / Wanted
    I bought this on eBay but the bike has now gone and I've got no use for it and can't be bothered to put it back on eBay. It's the grey version (not black as it appears in the photos) from an early 650. Here's the original auction: HONDA TRANSALP XLV 650 1999-2006 belly pan guard part number...
  13. Transalp
    Hello peeps, I've just fitted an o2 sensor eliminator, and I have to say the bike really has responded well to it, the fuelling is unbelievably smooth. I was also after a louder soundtrack ( not offensive, just nice & deep ), and was going to fit a decat pipe, leaving the standard silencer. I...

  18. Africa Twin
    Hi, I've got a US Transalp with Africa Twin parts on it. I'm pretty sure the headlights came from an RD04 or RD07. I think these are Euro-spec headlights. Here's what's on each lens: Right: Stanley D01-1981 (02083R20). Left: Stanley 5900 (0240R20), has a "city light" mini bulb in it...

    Can anyone help with a recommendation where to park my Vara in Liverpool city centre? I am heading to the passport office on Old Hall street so as close as possible would be great! I once got a ticket for parking on the pavement (not blocking anything, it was 3m wide!) So I'm a little weary...
