  1. Transalp
    Can anyone recommend hand guards for the above bike. Snapped my hand brake lever ( but managed to manufacture a mock-up for now) Looking at the twist grip there doesn't seem to be provisions for fixing a two point gaurd, which I would prefer (more solid) It seems to be a closed off tube...

  7. Dominator / FMX
    I am selling my flatside if anyone is interested. I have re-jetted and fitted the required needle for the Dommie mod. Nick in Brum cleaned it and set it up for me but I dont want to fit it on my Dommie and it would be a shame to just throw it in the spares box. PM me if you are interested. The...
  8. Africa Twin
    Hi all, I want to bring the clutch lever closer to the grip on my new AT as it's just a tad too far, but there is no 'disc' to turn like the break lever - Anyone know how I do this? Bit reluctant to fiddle with the free play adjuster, dont know if that actually will bring the lever forward a...
  9. Varadero
    Hi , just had my varadero over a week , spotted that it says grip heater on each grip but they don't get hot and there's no switch or controller for them .... Am I missing something or are they just not working ? They look like genuine Honda grips . Chris
  10. Dominator / FMX
    Just back in from a 4 hour b-road ride on the new BT45's - the bike is transformed! Kicking myself for persevering with the awful Avon Distanzas for so long - the bike is now stable, copes with broken surfaces and has grip at last - a real pleasure to ride now! Can't speak for off-road riding...

    Hi to all, had a Dominator for a few years, regretfully sold it on but am now running a 98 transalp. Im looking at changing the tyres for some that grip better on tarmac, cut a long story short I like the reviews on here of Annakees but am wondering would a wider size fit my transalp or am I...
  15. Transalp
    Hi all, Ive now taken the grips off the Alp but I cant seem to find any grips to fit. For some odd reason most grips seems to be 120-125mm long, whereas I have about 95mm throttle side and 90mm clutch side. Did the 600 Alp come with shorter grips? :confused: I could move the various 'bits' like...

    Just wanted to check something out. My bike has had a Renthal bar fitted and would like to fit some heated grips to it but I'm unsure of the diameter, presuming its a standard size what would it be? Cheers

    I managed to break the glue seal on my heated grips and need to reglue the throttle grip. Will super glue do? Is it strong enough these days? i remember when coming within 10 yards of a tube and your fingers were glued together but that was thirty years ago. If not what is the best glue I can...
