  1. Transalp
    Well, I’m back! First post for over two years. Been away from Honda, big mistake. Let me just say that Transalps are superb. Oh, a pain to work on the engine but..... :D Picked up Suki yesterday, a new to me 09 plate. Ahhhh, lovely ride. Anyway, back to tech... The rear brake pedal is 8 feet...

    After a long search for KTM WP forks I ended up with 2 sets - 1 pair was attached to a very clean KTM 990 Adventure...so I sold the AT. Probably a mistake I know. Today, I bumped in to its' re-incarnation!

  5. Varadero
    Just got back from a ride to Belgrade, Serbia. It was nearly 40C in Budapest on the way and I made the mistake of blanking off my dip beam with black tape. The tape got hot and cracks developed in the headlight lens. The Vara is a late FI. Any suggestions as to who could supply a used or pattern...

    heh, so after slinging the tank back on and (loosely) inserting the forward (2) and rear (1) mounting bolts - it seems as if I've got a "spare bit" :p I had 2 spacers either one of which would work for the rear mounting point but not both...so now I'm scratching my head and wondering where...

    Typical noob mistake I guess - I noticed the coolest was on the low side - just touching the minimum so off I went and bought some more, poured it in, thought I was being conservative but nope - over-filled (see pic).. First thought - as the bike heats and the coolant expands it'll flush out of...

    I think we've all read before about the DVLA errors (read horrors) when renewing a licence and having it returned missing entitlements, sometimes HGV but mostly Category A motorcycle entitlements, in some cases resulting in having to take a test again as they wouldn't admit their mistake. Well...

  18. CRF - New Forum!
    Hi Guys, First post here I have just bought a CRF250X9 2009, it has the standard can. I don't want a noisy can, but feel a pipe with better air flow might help performance a little and sound better. Would a 04 -09 CRF250X single pipe system fit? I know a 10/11/12 one does not because I have...

    Hiya Can anybody please tell me the order of the top 2 piston rings for this engine? One has a flat rectangular cross section while the other has chamfers on the top and bottom. I'm almost certain the top ring is the flat one and the chamfered one is the second, but I'm not 100% sure. I'd be...
