    Been thinking of rigging up a temporary fuel tank for when I need to balance the carbs on the TA. Saw on another forum (yeah, yeah I know - burn the heretic! :D ) where someone used an aluminium bottle as a fuel supply. I got said ally bottle from our equivalent of the pound shop (all of €2!)...

  11. Transalp
    I'm having no luck getting the TA on its stand. true, I am an 11-stone weakling but I don't have any problems with other bikes. So I suspect it might well be that the stand is all cacked-up. Has anyone serviced theirs? I recall reading that the springs are tricky to get on and need pound coins...
