  1. Africa Twin
    I seek advice from people with experience with the MRA varioscreen V (new full screen) and the MRA vario touring (clip on top of old screen) part. I suffer from high windnoise on higher speeds. Been looking for reviews and comparisons, but not alot to find. I'm 6 foot 2 inches high. I like the...
  2. Transalp
    Hi all, This is my first post, so please let me know if it is in the wrong place! I am looking at importing a TA from France, via a friend of mine. Will this massively affect the price of insurance? If I save £500 on getting it here and taxing / registering it, will I end up paying that anyway...
  3. Transalp
    On longer rides, especially when loaded up, I find that my arms sometimes start acheing. I'm thinking of trying some higher bars. Any recommendations and do they affect the handling etc of the bike? Also what if any modifications will be needed to the controls etc? Thanks for any answers. Nick...
  4. Dominator / FMX
    Anyone taken the oil strainer out of the bottom of their frame? Tried removing it yesterday, so i could check it, and get frame ready for powder coat, but could not get it to undo. Tried interlocking two spanners to get a higher torque, but still no joy. Any tips on removal???

    Bought these bad boys from Joom.com for 11 euros(dynamic pricing if you search direct you pay a higher price than if you browse and they show up)(number four of the ones shown) took two weeks to arrive, look good quality with a built in cooling fan etc. Fitted today and the result is like...

  7. Transalp
    Hi Im building a bike from my 2000 AT and a 600v Transalp frame and wanted to know if anyone has managed to fit the petrol tank from an RDO7a onto a transalp. I think the frame on the transalp is wider so the tank sits higher?? Cheers Cam
  8. Dominator / FMX
    Hi all. Just picked up a FMX 650 that’s had a replacement engine. It came with the old engine that’s got a shagged piston but apart from that it’s in good shape. I’m looking to buy a new piston and rebuild the old engine. My question is can I use the same diameter 100mm piston from the XR650L...

    I have an '89 TA with the higher AT suspension fitted. Is there a centerstand option for this?
  10. Transalp
    Hi all, Been doing a bit of research but no luck as yet, looking for an accessory bar for the 650 TA. Specifically a high bar above the instrument cluster, behind the (tall/touring) windscreen. Keep the sat nav higher up in view. Does anyone know of anyone who has made one/seen one/bought one...
  11. Varadero
    I've been thinking about relocating the fuel pump (Facet), anyone any ideas or pictures if they've done it? I'm hoping to relocate it higher up in behind the main fairing somewhere. I did look into fitting it by the carbs, but I think it might be too large. Thanks in advance :thumb:
  12. Transalp
    Following on from the ebay/gumtree thread (the 4th most viewed thread ever on this forum)... does anyone else think 600 Transalp prices seem to be going up? I have noticed the same bikes crop up for sale within a year, at a higher price. Genuine price increase, or sellers trying it on? I...
  13. Clothing
    Hi guys I am looking quite hard online for 2mm leather jackets but it seems the 1.1-1.4mm range is mostly in fashion. Anyone knows of a good brand that makes leather thickness higher than that range please? Thanks

I have just found myself a lovely pillion passenger, RD04 rear pegs are unavailable SH and I am ona tignh budget. So decided...
  15. Transalp
    I have a TA650 and have owned TAs most of the time since the early 90s because they suit me and they do most things well. I have not ridden the new CB500X but the impresson from the posts on many websites is they appear to be the new Transalp relative to the new Africa. They appear to be capable...

    What is the general perceived wisdom on running in after fitting new rings. Standard rings no re-bore, barrels not honed but lightly abraded with wet and dry. Some seem to advocate the bimble along at low revs for 500miles others to allow the engine to rev a little higher for short periods...
  19. Dominator / FMX

    I am looking for a Black Corbin seat for AT RD07A if anyone is selling one please. I have a standard seat in A1 condition if someone has bought a bike and needs the standard one as its higher than a Corbin.
