  1. I know I'm being lazy, but.....

    Transalp
    can anyone recommend a decent cover for a 600 TA? I did a search on here but nothing came up. By 'decent' I mean something that stays on, packs up small and won't rip after a month...it's mainly for deterring opportunist thieves and similar vermin, rather than withstanding a hurricane. Amazon...
  2. Fehling crashbars

    Chatter
    I needed a bracket for these engine protection bars(Africa Twin) the one I had was damaged and I couldn't get it to fit so I sent an email to the Fehling in Germany, 4 days later one was delivered free of charge. I have to say I'm really pleased and I thought it might help people know they are...

  4. Decat question.

    Transalp
    Hello peeps, I've just fitted an o2 sensor eliminator, and I have to say the bike really has responded well to it, the fuelling is unbelievably smooth. I was also after a louder soundtrack ( not offensive, just nice & deep ), and was going to fit a decat pipe, leaving the standard silencer. I...
  5. J644 JOR

    Transalp
    I was just thinking the other day about my 1st Transalp a 92 XL600 I had back in 1998 to 2004 and wondered if it was still on the road, I checked on the gov.uk site and was pleased to see its taxed and MOT'ed :p Just a stab in the dark but does anyone here have it? it would be so cool to see...
  6. Info needed on this import bike

    Other Honda
    Hi everyone. I have acquired a Honda CL400 and very pleased with it so far. There is hardly any info available on the web so at the moment I have no manual or even a handbook. The engine is apparently the same as that in a XR400 (or KR400?) so I should be able to service the engine OK. - but the...

  12. XR400 revisited

    XR
    Got myself another XR400R, about 6 weeks ago, with 2800 miles on it It needed a bit of fettling and a good going over, change the fluids all around, grease the linkage and swingarm bolt out for lubing etc and basically put it back to standard, removing the fatbars/risers and Acerbis tank and...
  13. Varadero 07, my new ride :)

    Varadero
    Purchased my new ride the other day, an 07 Varadero 1000. This will be my fourth!!! Very pleased with it, but I do not remember the ride being so firm. It's only done 19000 miles, one owner with full service. The rear is harsh. Smooth undulating roads, no problem. A bit more than that and it...
  14. Insurance renewal....worth a few minutes on the phone!

    Chatter
    Just in case it may be useful to other people, my renewal note came through the post as my cover is due to expire in a couple of days. Picked up the phone to see if that was the best price they could do (AVIVA) after going though all the details, they managed to bring the premium down by about...
  15. Differance in carbs on the VT 1996 model?

    Transalp
    Hi! I am looking for a rebuild kit for my XL600v 1996.......I have found several kits running 1987-95, but none for my 96. I see that the mains are different, but are there anything else? Can I buy a kit for a 95 and just switch the mains for the 118\120 jets? I have used Sirius before on my...

    Transalp
    Hello all. I've owned this bike since new and have 45,000 km up so far. I love it and am pleased with it's ease of use and reliability, with one exception. About twice a year on average, and this has been going on ever since new,- the bike will not start. The motor spins over ok but will only...
  20. Which road tyres for XL700?

    Transalp
    The Anakee 2s on my XL700 are nearing the end of their life. I've been pleased with them but, having tried the Alp offroad a couple of times I'm reconciled to not doing it any more (too heavy for my skills). As I now have no need for a dual purpose tyre, what are the best road tyres I could use?
