    You know that moment when you poke something with a screwdriver and immediately wish you hadn’t... I found a bit of flaky paint around where the seat and silencer bolt to the subframe, off side. One poke with a screwdriver later, I had a hole. After a friend attacked the affected area with a...
  2. Transalp
    So I have a 650v4 Transalp with 55,000 on the clock. Only proviso on the MOT from October was front discs are slightly worn. The bodywork and engine are a little cosmetically untidy- the engine's silver paint has come off in places and there is the spot of rust here and there but nothing major...

    Hey Folks - hope you're all managing to get in some riding in these colder times... Could do with some advice on how best to fix some paint chips on the front left side fairing. As you can see from the photo, 90% if the chips are on the red decal - the rest on the blue. To be honest I can live...
  4. XL
    Hi, just bought one of these as a project bike. Bike has been sitting since 1992. All the plastics (fenders, side panels, fairing) are full of cracks. The cracks are just on the white paint that these parts have. Paint is not loose or coming off, but it's not pretty. They can only be seen...

    I recently bought a set of secondhand GIVI Outback pannier frames that were in a poor state due to off-road use. So I stripped the powdercoating and got them re-coated in a bright silver (work done by Micro Fusion in Bedford) The alloy catches at the top were restored with alloy wheel paint and...

    The paint code under the seat is B142H which I believe is Pearl Atlantis Blue. Trouble is I want the darker paint on top is this the same just applied thicker to darken it or is it different?? Same as this

    Lots of researching and can't figure out what would be best for crack repairs. Front fairing on my 97 xrv has 2 cracks leading down from windscreen. 1 crack dead ends into bolt hole from top 1/2inch long, the other opposite side from top down for about 2 inches. Never done repairs on this stuff...

  11. Dominator / FMX
    So after a number of months sitting in spare parts in my garage, the ol' Dommie is finally back together! Cleaned her up from the frame up, stuck a Wiseco high compression piston in the motor, fresh tyres, braided front brake line, repainted a few bits such as exhausts, fork top tee, handlebars...

    Does anyone have a decent front hub for sale, i.e. with all disc bolt threads intact ? Paint condition not too important as can be re-painted if necessary. Many thanks.
  14. Transalp
    Hi there! My first motorbike (since my 125cc motocross) is a Transalp 600 1992 in great condition. Already love it. I kind of like how quiet it is, but if I could gain a few horsepowers, I could consider a cooler sound :) What exhausts do you recommend? Is it worth it? I hate the dull...

    During the summer I usually contract myself out to main dealers for specialist Technician work but during the 'quieter' winter I do a lot of private restoration work. To get the ball rolling this year I'm offering a massive discount on my usual service rates on Brake Calipers for the first ten...

    Hi all, I'm having trouble finding any suitable paint for the exhaust heat shields on an RD03. What have people used in the passed? As far as I know the colour is Magnesium Gold. Will regular paint work or will it need to be high temperature? I won't be painting the engine casings...
  18. Transalp
    Hi there, anyone out there rebuilt the rear swing arm bearings and the pivot bearings on their Transalp. I've got a 1999 version and it's just failed the MOT on the pivot bearings. I thought I might as well change all the bearings at the back and give it some paint. Any one know of a company...
