  1. Rear brake lever spline compatible / interchangeable .... ?

    Transalp
    I'd like to experiment with a modification to the rear brake lever of my XL700 Transalp but want to keep my original lever in case it goes horribly wrong! Are the splines the same across the different Transalp models (or any other Hondas)? This would open up the choice of spare parts/price...
  2. Alloy wheels

    Dominator / FMX
    I would like to customise my FX650 and wonder if anyone has fitted alloy 3 spoke wheels [like those on a Suzuki GS500] to their Honda. If this is a doable how complex is it or is there an easy way of fitting wheels from another bike which need little modification. Any photos would be helpful.

  6. New Scorpion Pipes

    Varadero
    I've just had my first ride with my new Scorpion pipes fitted. It was only a local tootle about with a few short dual carriageways. I loved the sound of them in my garage with the baffles in so I thought for my first ride i'd take them out. “Ay caramba!” that is one hell of a growl. I don't...
