  1. Transalp
    TA 650 (probably applies to all models though) For anyone thinking of doing this..on the 650 its a bit of a job. The Haynes manual says you just "attach the lower end of the new cable to the upper end of the old cable, and just pull the cable through", yeah, right. What it fails to mention...

    Hey all, My clutch cable snapped last week (luckily once I was home and parked) and I just swapped it out the other day. It took me longer than expected to free the old cable, purely because there was a little cable clip on the rear of the main upright. Difficult to see or feel, but once I had...

    Is there any clutch cable that has the same ends as the stock cable but longer to fit a RD03? I herd that the RD07 might be the same but longer ? Traveling The World Two Up on a 1989 Africa Twin 650. Updates Here: www.instagram.com/Africa.Twin.Adventures www.facebook.com/DHealy91

    Any suggestions. I cannot find a download version. The Haynes is rubbish. It says changing clutch cable is in chapter 19. There are only 9 chapters!

    I plan to replace the clutch springs and plates on my 99 Dommie this weekend. The problems have been: - terrible clutch action described by the MOT tester as like 'pulling on a rubber brick' - clutch sticking when cold and then releasing with a bang. - clutch slip - and now the clutch cable has...

    Hi Just bought a new clutch cable for my 650 ta v6. It does not have the bent bit of tubing on it. Is this normal for replacement clutch cables? This is the new one, i trust you all know what the original looks like.

    Just a note of advise as I was very very lucky. Got a 2009 XL 700 transalp, 20 k miles on it. Always well maintained. Out for a ride to Chester on Saturday (with the missus) 100 mile round trip, when in slow traffic, I felt a slight 'click, when I used the clutch. About 5 mins later, I felt the...
