  4. Transalp
    Greetings, I'm hoping someone can shed some light on a little bump in the road I've come across in my build. As the title states I've thrown a NT650 / Bros 650 / Hawk 650 motor in a Transalp frame and my issue is the front cylinder's exhaust port isn't allowing me to get the Hawk's front header...

    Dear all, Lately I have been experiencing some nasty issue with the RD07 AT (1995). This issue popped up when driving for 30 km’s at around 130 km/h. Suddenly, the bike started to loose power and couldn’t maintain that speed. I stopped and couldn’t start it again. After a while it ran again...

    New owner saying hi - fuelling help Hi all, I picked up my first 1999 nx650 Dominator this weekend after many years of sports bikes and wanting a change to something with a bit more comfort and adventure in mind. It's not my first thumper as I owned a XT600 after passing my test but being so...

    Had a bit of a nightmare yesterday after installing new pistons reassembling the heads and getting the engine back in the frame quite nicely disaster struck. When torquing down the small 6mm bolt in the cylinder head it snapped like a bit of cheese. As usual this was the last bolt. To fit a...

    Well, I’m back! First post for over two years. Been away from Honda, big mistake. Let me just say that Transalps are superb. Oh, a pain to work on the engine but..... :D Picked up Suki yesterday, a new to me 09 plate. Ahhhh, lovely ride. Anyway, back to tech... The rear brake pedal is 8 feet...

    Hello, Balam from Mexico here. I have undertaken the task of calibrating my valves. All went well with rear cylinder, but my front cylinder has a problem. Intakes valves are good. Exhaust valve is waaaaay too tight. I can get no feeler gauge in! What's going on? Is my timing chain off? Is the...

    Hello all ! This winter i want to rebuild my beloved AT as it already eats some oil - about 1l/1000km or so. I bought 8 years ago an complete engine with about 35.000 km, or so the seller told me. Anyway, i kept this engine in storage for 8 years and before i`ll put it on my bike i wanted to...

    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...

    Bike wont start! Exhasut makes loud bang after piston change and setting cam timing. I got a stomp juicebox 3 110cc off my friend. He told me he was riding it and the bike slowed down and when he turned it off it wouldn't turn back on. I knew a bit about bikes and after searching forums and...

    I thought I'd share my experience of this product. We were in southern Chile back in December last year when I noticed some liquid had collected on the left side of the engine - it appeared to be coming from the rear of the front cylinder's head gasket and was running down the block and onto...

    Was hoping someone could help with a braking issue (front) on my 1991 AT RD04. I've rebuilt the calipers and fitted the master cylinder repair kit, bled the brakes and fitted new pads but there's absolutely no build up of pressure at the brake lever. A couple of times I've managed a very slight...

    I want to replace the sight glass/inspection lens on the front master cylinder of my 1988 XRV 60, but I can not seem to find a spare or any information about the size of the lens. Does anyone have any good information about this? :happy8: I am pretty sure the XL600V shares the same master...

    I want an electric start engine to replace my XL600R motor. Anything considered, but a complete engine would be preferred. Failing that, has anyone got a good 600R cylinder head for sale?

    Hi all, I want to do a compression test but can’t find the right PSI number for my bike. I have a Haynes Manual and that shows the numbers for the XRV750 and transalp but not the xrv650, I also have a manual for the xrv650 but it says 28 PSI and that’s not right. Can anybody tell me the...

    Here’s one for ye, So I was cursing at 120kph and then the engine cut out, it was exactly like I hit the kill switch. The engine died instantly. I tough it was the CDI but there two of them and if you loose one you loose only one cylinder not two. Possibly both of the CDIs blew at the same...
