  1. Transalp
    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 All. Long time no post. I do hope you're all well. My rear shock is getting a bit long in the tooth and I want to start looking to replace it. My bike is 100% road going these days so I would not be against a road set up rear shock, so does anyone know what fits? I know there are lots of...

    I’ve had a number of bikes, big, small etc and I’ve never had a bike as hard to put on the main stand as the 700. ive strained my shoulder. strained my foot. Airhead Beamers, heavier bikes... easier. sports bikes with main stands.... easier. 650 Trannie..... don’t remember this being hard...

    OK so I'm on a roll now asking questions! Bike warms up lovely when stationary, temperature gauge showing where it should be however, as soon as I start riding gauge drops to zero. I'm guessing that either a/ Thermostat knackered b/ Thermostat doesn't exist. If either a or b I need to replace...

    Good evening I'm in the process of changing the front sprocket on my RD07a. I removed the sprocket cover and then the old sprocket. I was merrily cleaning all the old crud away before fitting the new one when this little fella dropped out. I have no idea where it goes so any help would be...
  11. Dominator / FMX
    Hi, does anyone know if there is a big difference between a NX650 frame and a XL600 Frame? I'm considering to put all XL600parts (fuel tank, seat, lichts, fenders etc on a Dominator frame (+engine)... Maybe also an option would be to put a dominator engine in the XL600? I have no idea how...

    After taking my calliper apart to clean the pistons and bores and to replace the seals I made the error of not taking photos of where the two clips/shims go !! I've ordered a manual but until it comes can anybody help? It's a twin piston calliper off a '93 transalp and there are two stainless...
  17. Varadero
    As the title suggests, I am toying with the idea of altering my Varadero by fitting a different petrol tank from a VTR, has anyone done this or used a tank from a different bike? If so how difficult and what was required? All replies welcome:thumbup:

    Hi Folks! I just looking for Oil Temperature Gauge for my '93 RD02. I found lot of them at ebay around 30 EUR for rd08, and 65 eur for rd02. As far as I know, the thread size is different: RD02 has around 29mm, and RD08 has 20x2.5mm. But, the rest of the stick is same? If this is true, I...

    Just applying for a V5 and SORN on the RD03 as I didn't get one with the bike, checked online with the DVLA and its registered as a Honda Unknown Multi-Coloured. As they are all imported do any have the right model on the V5?, or is it because mines from Japan? Any idea if I can get this...
