heavy

  1. Transalp
    Afternoon. My first post here. Just acquired a scruffy 2002 Transalp 650. However, all seems reasonably sound with history etc. However, clutch seems very heavy, even with new cable. Before I dismantle, any thoughts please? Perhaps just bunged up with crud from the past 36,000 miles?

    New member question - Hello recently bought a 2008 transalp 650 which I am enjoying riding much more than the GS1100 I just got rid of (too heavy !) Anyway, wonder if someone can help identify the pannier rack that my bike has fitted from the attached photo. The bike did not come with panniers...

    Hi, I haven't been around for a while, having sold the transalp to my brother. He uses it mostly for touring, and so finds the setup of connector pipe and Leo Vince exhaust a bit loud (but it's great fun for hooning around). I've reinstalled the original HEAVY! silencer box for him and am now...

    I am looking for a "do it all" bike, to replace the Transalp (London ULEZ has kiboshed it's use) and the R1200RT. I am looking at the Vstrom 650, the Tracer 700 or the NC750X I have ridden the NC750X recently and it was good. I rode the VStrom a while back, but can't remember anything about...

    I just received my new tires and figure I will change tubes as well and keep old ones as spares. Everything I have owned for years has been tubeless except my RD03 which came with new tires/wheels and my KLR650 which I changed eons ago. Want Heavy duty but not sure which brands are best. Any...

    Anyone done this? I'm looking at trying to find some brackets to get it done. Caribou cases brackets are $$$ as heck. Thought of trying Heavy duty case mounts. The Givi boxes I got are way too big 45ltr. boxes and my spare 1550 pelicans are to big as well. Trying to keep bike as close to bar...

    Searching up TA700 specs,I can't find any reference to the actual ready-to-ride wet weight. Any number of sites quote dry weight as 214kg. So, if that's correct, it puts the fuelled weight somewhere north of 230kg. That seems helluva heavy to me. Can anyone shed any light?

    1989 TA 600, 55,000 miles. I ride in London, so it's pot hole and speed hump heavy, the bike seems to to have developed harsh front suspension, it really crashes and bangs over the bumps, almost like it's not soaking up the bumps like it used to (unless the potholes have got worse) Would...

    Hi all, Wondering if any of you has SW Motech, Givi or Heavy Duties crash bars? To be exact i'm asking those who already "tested" them (fallen, slided, dropped the bike)? Heavy Duties seem to be at a very reasonable price, but would really want to know about their durability and ruggedness in...

    Me and Jnr decided to have a go at doing the clutch yesterday evening which took about an hour to remove the allen bolts ,brake pedal and footrest. Upon closer inspection the clutch plates didnt seem to be too badly worn but the sides of the clutch basket are a bit which is probably why the...

    I plan to replace the clutch springs and plates on my 99 Dommie this weekend. The problems have been: - terrible clutch action described by the MOT tester as like 'pulling on a rubber brick' - clutch sticking when cold and then releasing with a bang. - clutch slip - and now the clutch cable has...

    I've bought their centre stand for the TA700 but it came with no instructions and a quick search here revealed no hints about the general fitting method. So... Do I need to take anything off the bike? A quick look seems to show the side stand in the way. Do I grease the hinge pin during...
