  1. Transalp
    Hi all, I was wondering if anyone had any advice on who to go to for parts? Who is the best / best value / most helpful supplier? I also need a new battery and was wondering if I should go for a direct replacement or find a more modern sealed battery? Cheers!
  2. Africa Twin
    So they have been raving how good the new Africa Twin is yet there is loads for sale with little miles on them so why is this ... Personally for me yes its a modern bike but the essence of the Africa Twin was the V twin engine and the simplicity of it all plus i sat on one at the NEC and i was...

    Hi Does anybody have some photos of there rd04 with gold excel wheels? I'm finally getting round to finishing my 1990 rd04 and I'm struggling to decide if to go black or gold. I wanted gold but the excels are quite a different gold to the originals and black look really nice and more modern...
  4. Africa Twin
    so i was reading practical sportsbikes the other day, they recommend and in fact did a feature on replacing existing 1990's coils with modern stick ones, with all the benefits of newer tech. has anyone considered this with an @twin? im already running a programmable ignitech CDI along with...

    I was thinking about how there just isn't an equivalent to the TA 600 in todays marketplace. It's all either 250cc or 750cc bikes. The 700 translp is just plain ugly. I think the 600 transalp is still the best looking one, a real design classic. If Honda re-released the 600, everything exactly...

    The VMCC bike jumble at Shepton Mallet is this Saturday (1st March) Not just vintage but old modern bits, projects, bikes. Many stalls under cover, friendly atmosphere. At the last one I found Africa Twin and Harley parts I was looking for.

    Hi all i just fitted a new X ring HD chain to my transalp and is it ok to fit a split type link in place of the rivet type as it makes for easy work when i service the bike i have new sprockets back and front as well and i got the original honda parts . New to modern bikes. Old PJ

    Anyone know if any modern bike wide pegs fit the xr250 or are they specific to the xrs ? Just thought it would be a cheaper way of getting wide pegs rather than buying the XR aftermarket ones from the USA.

    I need to set up an ignition fed relay to power accessories only when the ignition is on. Where's the best place to take the post-ignition live feed? Where can I get a Haynes manual for the modern bikes - or at least a wiring diagram?
  10. BMW
    I know I said I wasnt going to spend much on the R45 but I really dislike the look of the 'modern' valve covers and was wondering about fitting these. BMW R 45, 60,65,75,80,90,100 Valve /Rocker Cover round | eBay I assume they are not proper BMW ones and are re-manufactured. Good Bad or...
  11. Bodgers Corner
    I think in the modern GS world this is called Tobinators and a Migsel-mount and would set you back 200 quid without breaking a sweat... I call it half an hour of bodging with some leftover metal strip and bolts from the parts-bin, and 11 quid for a new RAM ball. :mrgreen:

    Honda UK have announced 3 new models on there facebook page today one is a sporty scooter thing, another is modern remake of the CB1100 which looks nice and retro modern, the other is a dakar bike. Anybody on FB can view it here...
  13. Ride Reports and Pictures
    A group of bikers from Cyprus came up to visit this weekend. They did a flight with me, then I took them for a tour around...Even though 3 of them were riding Gs's, they were still nice people;):mrgreen: Snapped this pair whilst waiting for them to turn up.. Took them up the...

    wouldn't mind something with a more modern look but would need to be good quality. Any recommendations?
  15. XL
    Hi all, can anyone give me any info on a xlr250? is it an xr engine, xl frame? etc. I have a 1986 xlr250 which im in the process of registering but want to add a more modern back end and was wondering if anyone knows of a modern one that will fit it ie xr250/xr400.
  16. XR
    I've just put my '87 XR250 on the road after a long sorn and am wondering if I need to be concerned about the affect of modern petrol with ethanol in it on my plastic tank. I did a search on the forum on this subject but didn't find anything specifically for the plastic tank on the XR. I'm well...

    I just watched the first two Chilean miners come to the surface in Fenix 2. What those guys have been through defies words. Can you imagine what those first 17 days must have been like for them, not knowing if you'd be found, or even if anyone was looking for you anymore, and had abandoned you...
  19. XR
    Hi, I have a 1984 XR250 that hopefully will run nicely after an engine rebuild. Looking ahead I want to get it a daylight MOT so I can ride it to and from the local green-lanes. Tyres are proving thetrickiest as it has a 17" rear wheel and most modern tyres seem to be for an 18" rear. I...
