  3. What size C-Spanner for the stearing stem bearing?

    Africa Twin
    Hello, my stearing head bearing seems to require adjustment. There is some play present but the bearing feels fine. I can not locate an adjustable C-Spanner for the adjustment, but can get hold of an individual size spanner. Does anyone know what size C-Spanner is needed for an Africa Twin's...

  6. Sticky Brakes

    Transalp
    Hello everyone, This is my first post on the site, although I have been viewing XRV.org for about 2 1/2 years since I bought my transalp. I knew I would get round to it in the end!!! :D Anyway, I was wondering if anyone else has the same problem as me at the moment. My transalp is an 05 650...
  7. Aerostich Roadcrafter one piece suit

    Product Reviews
    I've had my suit for over a year now and am well pleased with it. The advantage of it over conventional gear is that it can be worn over whatever you're wearing. If you want to go for a run no need to change just put your boots on and step into the suit. It's made out of goretex lined heavy...
  8. New Transalp Review (full article)

    Transalp
    This is an article printed in a mag.. Sshh.. The Transalp has long been a star in Honda's constellation, but will the eagerly awaited incarnation shine as bright? It's been 20 years since the Transalp first hit our shores, and to celebrate it passing that two-decade milestone, Honda has...
  9. So? What bike now?

    Africa Twin
    Well, having had my AT nicked where do I go from here? What bike now? I'm not loaded so buying a new 'mega bucks' bike ain't gonna happen. Wouldn't buy new anyway, better to buy something a few years older well looked after. Wouldn't buy something like a BMW 1200 even if I could afford one...
  10. Advice to make up my mind

    Other Bikes
    I have been pondering for a while now and when our second car gets sold I intend to travel on a bike for work and general popping out. I have an XJR 1300 which I love on a sunny day but dont want to use it for everyday. I had considered getting rid of this for something like a transalp, but it...
  11. Would you consider the Transalp "neutral" handling?

    Transalp
    I'm asking as I've had a SV650S for the last 4 years or so and only ridden that until I bought a '97 Transalp. I've been a bit scared to ride it to be honest because I've found the front wheel seems to track every bit of tar banding, lump and bump and I feel as though I'm gonna tip over at any...
  12. Corsica

    Chatter
    Just back from my trip, what a place. did the Route Napoleon on the way down outstanding :D :D :D :D :D . The scenery and roads on the island cater for everybody, long sweeping bends perfectly surfaced, not so good surfaced mountain roads ideal for Gs's oh and some hondas :cool: and it averaged...

    Chatter
    Is it me or has deodorant changed. I have never been able to use anti perspirent as it just cloggs my hairs up. So have always used deodorant Now I have noticed that after the smallest effort I start to get a bit 'minty' whilst checking the bottles of deodorant i have noticed that they are...
  14. More tyres.......Distanzas are crap!

    Transalp
    Distanzas seem to have a good following here and when my tyre man suggested them for the winter I jumped at it. Well, after 10 years and over 100k miles of riding I finally had a "proper" off. Approaching a set of lights (within speed limits and a run I have done everyday for nearly 10 years)...

  16. Wheels

    Transalp
    Having just completed the BMW off roading course in the Beacons in Wales, I'm now itching to get the 'Alp on a few fire roads around our local forests. Problem is, my Michelin Anakees, whilst brilliant in the pissy Irish weather, are not the tyres of choice for gravelly off roading. Ideally a...
  17. 2 days in Peru take 2

    Ride Reports and Pictures
    Heading south down the Transamerica Highway, we decide to take the advice of a couple of folk and head inland towards the Cordillera Blancas. The day starts off on the coastal highway. We pass the now usual casualties of everyday Peruvian driving…:shock: Then turn off up...
  18. O forum please forgive me for what I have done...

    Transalp
    I stand before you a pathetic sinner in front of my judges. May you find it in your hearts... Ok, here goes: I recently thought about parting with my Transalp. It had become afflicted with the usual condition (corroded rims that had started to crack) and I considered chopping it in against a...
  19. I need a new engine

    Africa Twin
    My Af is blowing half a litre of oil every 500 miles. It is used everyday for my commute. It has been totally reliable on a RTW trip completed last year but is now knackered. I was thinking a secondhand engine is the way forward. Do you (or anyone you know of) might have a good cond recovered...
