  1. Transalp
    Hello all, I think I need a new battery as mine gets discharged sometimes like this morning I couldn't start the bike. Any recommendations? I don't want to get a lithium one if I don't have to as they are over 100 quid but I will get one if it's worth it I use the bike every day rain or shine...

    OK so I'm on a roll now asking questions! Bike warms up lovely when stationary, temperature gauge showing where it should be however, as soon as I start riding gauge drops to zero. I'm guessing that either a/ Thermostat knackered b/ Thermostat doesn't exist. If either a or b I need to replace...

    Poxy seat on the rd07 is the most uncomfortable thing I've ever had the displeasure of sitting on, soooo what are my options? Wait for one to come up secondhand? Spend a fortune on Corbin or top sellerie? Has anyone used the polish lad on eBay that charges 90 quid? I've already got an...

    Hmmm, just noticed my vinyl starting to crack, so have to think about a re-cover - anyone had any experience about the kits on ebay - ranging from some smart-looking (in the photos) dual colour ones for 44 quid, up to some German replacements, where you send off the whole seat. As the bike is...

    As I was about to head off to the West Coast last week, the battery decided to die on my 2011 Transalp ! Anyway i want to replace it but wondered if anyone has any experience of the new Lithium Batteries and if they are worth the few extra quid and if they can be a direct replacement, like the...

    with the supposed fragility of honda reg/rec i thought i'd try one of these from ebay. under 4 quid delivered. i wish i had bought 2. it should warn me if the battery should play up or the reg/rec over charge or under charge.

    My speedo stopped working so I removed the assembly and this is what I found. Firstly, can I still use it with the piece missing out the side (I did this trying to get the inner plastic but out)? Secondly, how the hell do you get the plastic bit out? The bit that spins around that fits into...

    My speedo and trip stop working last week, so took off the front wheel and the plastic bit inside it stuck solid. It won't budge, now I know it's only a few quid for the part, but how do I get the old one out and what could have caused it to seize in the first place as I don't want to replace...

    After seeing that its going to cost me 75 quid to courier my wheels to central with compensation to the value of 800 quid, is there a simple way of removing the hubs so I can just send them. Or can anyone else who has couriered their wheels to central tell me who they used

    As anyone who has ridden on the Continent in the Summer knows, it can get damned hot and it does not take long to dehydrate when on a bike, especially if you wear a mesh jacket(as I do) Aldi have 2l hydration camel packs at the moment for around 6 quid. Mebbe worth a look before that trip to...

    We have a tiny little upholsterers in Ross, and I got talking to Terry who works there and asked if they could do a bike seat. Not bad for fifty quid, he said he would rather not refoam it but leave it as original. No complaints here. He would rather not have his details posted all over the...
