    Transalp
    Hi, I have a red 1999 XL600V Transalp with a damaged headlamp cowl. I have found a replacement cowl online which is red but I'm not sure the colour will match. Does anyone know if there were different shades of red used on this model/year? I've attached a picture of my bike. It's quite an...

    600 Alp - Loaded test run Well, after over 400 miles since yesterday morning, I think I can safely say that the 21 year old Alp is fairly sorted. Took a 120 mile run over to the Red Squirrel camp site at Glencoe Saturday morning and met up with a fellow Alp rider. Red Squirrel camp site...
  7. flat spot

    Transalp
    My 600 (1987) developed a flat spot this afterrnoon, around 4,500 revs she bogs down momentarily before picking up again. It feels like fuel starvation, except that she'll then shoot round to the red line with no problem. So, given that 90% of carburetor problems turn out to be electrical...

  14. XRV650 RD03 coolant type

    Africa Twin
    Hi, Planning on flushing the coolant, can’t make out if I should use OAT (silicate free, red colour) or IAT. The bike has green stuff in it now, but I believe silicates ruin the water pumps on some bikes. Anyone know what I need to use, my manual doesn’t say anything helpful on the matter...

    Hey Folks - hope you're all managing to get in some riding in these colder times... Could do with some advice on how best to fix some paint chips on the front left side fairing.

  19. Immobiliser

    Transalp
    I have a new-to-me 2005 Transalp V4. Having now read the users manual it stares that when I turn the ignition on the little green 'key' light (immobiliser system indicator) on the RH side of the neutral indicator should turn on for a few seconds and then go off? That does not happen. turn key...
