  3. NCB Maintained on a 125?

    If I changed my Alp for a 125 for a few years, would my insurance No Claims Bonus be maintained? I seem to remember a few years ago when I downgraded to a 125 when between bikes my plan backfired as my insurance broker would not transfer my policy to anything less than 250 (or possibly 125...

  5. Boris Jr swells the ranks

    Another biker is born. My eldest has just joined the ranks of motorbike ownership. He has been looking for ages in the sub £1K region for a good second hand bike and they all seemed to be either clunkers or went for silly money. Even the cheap Chinese bikes seemed to be either cruiser replicas...

  7. Project Bike

    Mechanical Advice
    Im currently bidding on a Project 125cc bike on ebay. It looks in reasonable condition, it has been in a crash by the looks of it. A bit of fairing damage (not too much), broken brake lever, says it appears not to have been maintained but engine runs sweet. None of the above bothers me. Ive...
  8. Instability on rough tarmac

    I am new to the Transalp and have just bought an xl700. I'm really pleased with it apart from the stability on certain road surfaces. For example, where a trench has been dug for water mains or whatever and then the road resurfaced, if I ride where the old and new surfaces meet the bike seems to...
  9. Tyre pressures when you change tyres?

    I purchased a new 2011 Transalp 4 months ago & have covered just over 7000 miles so have got to know the bike quite well. Original Trailwings wore out at 5k. Had no problems with them but almost all that mileage was during a long dry spell in England. Have now done about 2K on Battlewings and...

  11. Mini-Review: MotoBatt sealed AGM Battery

    Africa Twin
    Hi all, Bit boring, I know, but - quick mini-review: it's been just over a year since I fitted one of those yellow MotoBatt sealed AGM batteries to my RD04. So far I have to say I've been very impressed. It was nearly twice the price of a bog standard battery, but not as much as a gel one (at...

  18. Should I or Shouldn't I Rebuild the AT?

    Africa Twin
    Hi Guys, Been toying with the idea of completely stripping down the AT to the frame and reconditioning the whole bike. If this was an old model the choice would be a definite yes but it's only a 2002 with 18'000 and has been very well maintained, so doesn't really need it. So why do I want...
  19. Hello Transalpers
