Guess the title says it all; have you Alp owners tried the TET North (Tynemouth to the Lakes area, via Hexham, Alston etc.) Wondering if it's a little too much for the Alp?
Eveyone is telling me a CRF250L or Rally // WR250 is the better choice!
Thinking of spoiling the old machine and replacing the 21year old rear shock.
The YSS units that Wemoto sell seem to get great reports when fitted to the little CRF250L, so I was thinking of trying one out.
Anyone on here tried one on a 600 Alp?
I have prices up a Wilbers for it as well -...
I don't see how this makes sense ... but let me ask!
After installing kitpeds raiser kit (+6cm front and back) & removing db killer, my clutch slips.
Before I had no issue whatsoever (RD04 from 1992 with 87000km). I checked for free play on the clutch lever and there is more than...
My "front-end" saga continues with the discovery of seized brake caliper pistons and brittle caliper piston seals (that have been in there since 2001)
Having never done this before.....Is this piston good for re-use? It seems to slide in and out of the bore ok, but looks a bit pitted/scored?
I've recently discovered a rattle from the clutch cover on my 93 rd07. It happens when the clutch is pulled in. I'm thinking that it's the release bearing, wondering if anyone had any other ideas?

I did a quick search in the forum but didn't find anything similar to my issue.
My 2nd gear rattles quite a lot when I open the throttle throughout all the rev range. The rattle occurs only in 2nd gear and only during aceleration. I'm sure it comes from the gearbox and it's not something...
Hello ladies and gents,
So, right in to it. As the title states my 2000 RD07 J-spec if that matters won't start. Quick clarification, I've hunted through the forum and thought I was on the right track on the parts I changed out. Symptoms: Fired it up this morning warmed up and idled fine, rode...
Evening all, recently joined the forum after buying myself a ‘93 Transalp. It needs very little doing to it but I’d like to plan some repairs and basics. So, been asked before no doubt, but what’s the best source for buying spares and consumable, cables, electric parts, bearings etc.
As it says in the title, have two bikes, one fully kitted with satnav zumo 660, would like to use it on my AT. Anybody got the parts I need, for sale. Getting difficult to find them in the shops
or Irl address for Irl seller:nike:

Greetings, I'm hoping someone can shed some light on a little bump in the road I've come across in my build. As the title states I've thrown a NT650 / Bros 650 / Hawk 650 motor in a Transalp frame and my issue is the front cylinder's exhaust port isn't allowing me to get the Hawk's front header...
Hello, I am wondering which tyres others use that would give good onroad and offroad performance.
I apologize that I cant tell you what's on her now as i didn't look when i bought her recently though they are road tyres....
I did a small spin up a forest track last week and was quite impressed...

I'm looking to get some stiffer springs for a project bike (with unknown forks) and it could get expensive if I end up buying lots of different springs & rates new. It's been a little while since I had a Honda Transalp but think they might be suitable, so anyone got any old Transalp fork...
Does anyone out there have any experience of fitting a Keihin FCR41 Flat Slide Carb to a Dominator? I was told by a carb specialist that this would be an improvement and a little more power.
If so, how hard is it and what would I have to do .?
Thanks in advance
Paid the Ardnamurchan peninsular a visit on Friday, seeing as how Rederic of ABR forum had organised a little gathering at Strontian.
Took the long way there via the Lecht, Glenshee, Pitlochry and Glencoe - no worthwhile photo’s from any of those locations – but I took a few from on the busy...
During our move a box has been misplaced :(
Now I have time, space and money to start this rebuild.
A lot of xrv rd04 have been broken for parts but no one seams to keep the little things !
Pricing these small items new, very expensive.
