  1. Fairing Bolts

    Transalp
    Anyone know where I can get a set of bolts and screws for my fairing? '87 Transalp 600 with original fairing? I have found this one online, but not sure it will fit my early bike? https://www.pro-bolt.com/aluminium-fairing-kit-honda-xl600-vr-vx-transalp.html Thanks!
  2. The CDI thing again - location question

    Transalp
    Hi I had the revs go this morning and power drop - previous owner had bought a spare cdi but hadn't installed it and stupid me - I've left it at home. I have noted that the threads I read on this issue seem to discuss the CDIs being under the seat - mine are in the battery box on the left hand...

    Transalp
    got some PIAA 1100x lights ready to fit. I'd like to fit them under the headight via the the 2 fairing bolts. i was just wondering if anyone else has mounted lights here and if they can take the weight of the light (they dont weight that much). I need to modify the wiring loom that came with...

    Bodgers Corner
    I needed some new grommets for my bash plate, and while another member here kindly sent me some along with a sprocket cover I bought from him I managed to destroy them by spraying them with stuff to try to soften up the rubber a bit (they were on their way out anyway). Undeterred and still...

    Stupid question but someone will know. Does the baglux come off without having to undo any fairing bolts. I ask as my fairing bolts are very hard to get in once out... Alignment... Nowt wrong with them, just asking.:thumbup:
  9. Getting the bl**dy fairing bolts out!!!

    Africa Twin
    My baby is running a little rough(can't pin it down, just doesn't feel 'right') so planned to get down to adjusting tappets, checking plugs, get the carbs balanced etc...easy enough I thought... Got everything prepared, including the ipad set up for the music:p Got 2 of the fairing bolts out...
  10. Fitted a 12v socket to my AT

    Africa Twin
    Bought a kit from Polo in Germany, and finally got round to fitting it today... The first question was where to fit it, and then how to wire it through from the battery. On the RD07 it's possible to run the wires along the frame under the tank and up to the 'cockpit' area. Undo the bolts...

  12. Stainless Bolts for XL650V

    Transalp
    Anyone know of a source for replacement stainless fairing bolts etc for the 650 TA? Tastynuts do them for the 600 and 700TA, but the 650 seems to have flown under their radar. Coudn't see any 650 specific bolt kits on Ebay either.

    Anyone know where I might get some replacement fairing bolts, ideally in black or chrome to replace the tired ones I have on there now? As you know there are larger heads on the front fairing and some smaller ones dotted around the rest of the bike fairing!! Thanks in anticipation Paul
  16. My Vara Project

    Varadero
    Here goes. Seeing that I've been asked a couple of times what I'm planning to do with my Vara in order to make it look less like an old man's bike, here it is! You must all remember the old @ colour scheme, right?. Well, I'm planning on keeping to the spirit of the concept, but rather I'm...
