    Hi, This is a long shot but I figured I would give it a shot. I have a 1996 transalp in the blue/navy colour combo. I have badly damaged my front cowl and offside front side panel. Would anyone happen to have any fairings in this colour combo that they can sell? If not I will have to suck...

    Hello! I did a quick search in the forum but didn't find anything similar to my issue. My 2nd gear rattles quite a lot when I open the throttle throughout all the rev range. The rattle occurs only in 2nd gear and only during aceleration. I'm sure it comes from the gearbox and it's not something...

    Hello! A quick question: are there any differences in the back-cover (most importantly in mounting points) of the speedoblock depending on the generation, i.e. are they identical and/or swappable? Happened to break the mounting ears on mine of a 1995 RD08 while carelessly tackling a motocross...

    Im just about to start wiring my dommie project. I have created a wiring diagram, and was hoping someone could give it a quick look over and give me feedback on any mistakes. Also thought it may be handy for other people to use, (if its correct)

    Will they physically swap over? Specifically will an rd07 fit an rd04? Mine is getting very tired and a bit bouncy but I am really tight on funds (kidney anyone?) So just trying to expand my options. Tia.

    My brake light isn't working with the front brake. I was hoping a quick clean of the connections at the switch would fix it, but no joy. What else is it that might be the problem. I read one thread where a guy had a broken wire. I'm hoping that isn't what's wrong with mine. Brake light works...

    I took my 2008 700 Alp out today for a 30--40 miles run seeing as the sun was shining, at last. After a not too hard a thrashing whilst heading home I rode through the local town. Whilst amongst the slow traffic I thought it sounded a bit lumpy once or twice. A quick blip of the throttle seemed...
