  1. 700 TA

    Hi, Got a 2008 700 TA in december, stuck it in the garage - the Mrs has then filled the garage with crap so I can't get in from the garden and the youngest's car has broken down in front so I can't get in the front, hence the possibly silly question. Want to get a paddock stand for it (cheaper...

  3. Petcock o-ring 16958KM9005

    Hi, I need a new o-ring for my fuel petcock. Rather than order an original honda part which will take a couple days to me (and possibly bug the honda place where I just picked up what I actually needed via another order), I was just going to source a generic o-ring for this tomorrow, then I can...
  4. Replacement engine Transalp '87, which fits?

    I bought a '87 Transalp and is possibly needs another engine (front cilinder has 0 compression and is 'rattling'). I'm gonna pull the engine out anyway to check out the condition, but I'm not too positive. This Transalp has the black engine, do the newer gray engines also fit?

  6. 05 varadero carbs 125

  8. 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.

  15. High mudguard Transalp 600

    Morning All, I'm toying with the idea of fitting a Supermoto/MX style high mudguard to my 89 Alp partly because I like the way they look and also because I hope to have a go at some green laning and read a few posts about mud possibly clogging under the standard mudguard. Does anyone who has...

    AS newbie to this site, I have been told that this is a potential fault with the Transalp....does this relate to a particular model? 600/650/700 as I would have thought Honda would have rectified it! or does it relate to poor maintenance/ not using OEM parts? or possibly over tightening the...
