  1. Rear brake lever spline compatible / interchangeable .... ?

    Transalp
    I'd like to experiment with a modification to the rear brake lever of my XL700 Transalp but want to keep my original lever in case it goes horribly wrong! Are the splines the same across the different Transalp models (or any other Hondas)? This would open up the choice of spare parts/price...

However I still need to fit some gauges and I'd like to take a look at the pin-out or schematics for the original dash before tackling this job :) I would greatly...

    collecting used/not working bike parts to create a birthday present for my bike-mad boyfriend. He used to own a honda varadero, so preferably a speedo/the dash from that would be perfect, but from any other bike will do! Thanks

    Varadero
    Good morning all, So after many test rides I have decided to get a varadero. I get it next Saturday I can't wait. It's going to be my first big bike after doing my DAS in January. It's quite an up grade from my 125 cc cg! I thought it would be a hard bike to ride due to its size but when I...

  11. Guess what I saw today

    Africa Twin
    Hi All I went for a few hours of DAS training today and the instructer showed me a 2003 AT with only 4300 miles on it. It belongs to an ex Welsh rugby international who parked it up there a few years ago and hasn't touched it since. The paint work is in good nick but the engine casings have...
  12. Honda's reputation in the balance !!

    Transalp
    Shock, horror! My TA had a problem yesterday!! Honda's reputation was in tatters. One of the rear indicators stopped working. A blown bulb, I thought, but as I jiggled it, it started working again, so crisis over and Hondas reputation is intact ! If only other manufacturers could match it.
  13. Motogp Well done Cal!

    Chatter
    Another podium for the boy. Lets get Scott Redding in there and give em a couple of Repsol Hondas? Shame about Bradleys finger. That looked nasty!
  14. special tools needed for swing arm?

    Dominator / FMX
    hola, re-greasing the swing arm bearings and possible fitting a grease nipple ( why isnt there one as standard?) is next on my list. i have heard some hondas have pre-loaded bearings needing a special tool to remove. does a dominator have that or just old school bearings and spindle. thank you.

    Dominator / FMX
    Hi all. My apologies if this has been covered before. My Dommie has the usual wheel rot problems and with only 22 thousand miles on the clock. My Africa Twin suffered the same problem but had over 160,000 on the clock when I changed bikes. Anyway this seems to be limited to Hondas so I was...
  18. Cam Chain Tensioners

    Varadero
    I have a 2002 Varadero coming up to 30K miles and I was wondering how the CCTs typically hold up on a Varadero? The CCT seems to be a bit of a weakness with Hondas. (Changed the CCT twice on my 53K Blackbird.)

  20. AT Vs TA

    Africa Twin
    Hi, Got a 2001 TA in great condition, under 12,000 miles etc, etc but I'm finding the lack of go a little bit too much to take on longer rides, I keep looking at AT, but really apart from 100cc more and a few BHP is there that much difference? I'm looking to cruise at about 85mph the TA...
