    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?

    Hi lads! I've started to notice a slight knocking on the right footpeg when in 4th gear. Maybe 2-4 knocks pr second. It's very weak or non-existant in lower gears. It goes away completely if I pull the clutch very lightly. Anyone knows what this might be? Cheers!

    Don't know what it is about the RD07A but every simple maintenance job turns into a frikkin nightmare! Trying to replace my headlight bulbs but the wiring connector won't come away from the 3 pins. Got to what I consider a safe level of brute force trying to pull them off given the bits of...

    Guy turned up at the H cafe bike night last night on a brand new Yamaha R1M... He only had a woman pull out in front of him just down the road from the cafe 5 mins before he turned up and slid it down the road...:eek: It was all scraped down the left side. He seemed fairly matter of fact about...

    Quick question. I only ever had one throttle cable on my bike, obviously the pull one, have been told that some folks remove the "b" push cable on purpose because it can cause sticky throttle probs. anybody else run on just one or should i get another cable. Anybody have any thoughts about...

    I hope I'm describing this right but my Dommie sometimes feels like the rear wheel is buckled. this bizzarely only happens when it's under power, if I pull the clutch in it feels fine again. I thought it was the Cush drive rubbers but I bought new ones and when I went to replace them the...

    Tomorrow morning we will meet at Barftones in Bath and set off on our way for 12 days riding in Europe including a long train journey. I'm packed and ready to go but may need some massaging in the morning as I managed to pull a muscle in my back getting the bike off the stand this morning...

    Tried the search facility to no avail on this. I'm getting a rattle at tickover, sounds like a camchain as soon as you feed the clutch in to pull away the noise stops. Any ideas ? cam chain ? does the Transalp 600 have balancers ?
