    Hi can anyone recommend some short clutch and brake lever sets. i'm taking my 600 off road and find the levers awkward and think shorter ones would be better. anyone fitted some? were they any good?
  3. Africa Twin
    Hello guys, I have some evil thoughts about cutting in half the rebound spring or even more - ordering custom ones to be made if all is OK with the shorter length. I am talking about part number 10 here Now this is because I have good sag set up now, but when I put fork emulators they will...
  4. Transalp
    I was reading a ridiculously long thread on a Harley forum all about front suspension (as one does) and much was said about setting sag, after installing bespoke springs...as far as I'm aware, my 94/5' 600 has the long fork springs installed, ie there are no spacers between the spring tops and...

  8. Ride Reports and Pictures
    Hi all Report and pics on my trip to Norway in August. I left home on 29th of July at about 1pm and just over 1 hour later I was in Folkstone waiting..in the rain..to board the 3.20pm Eurotunnel. I hoped the weather would get better on the other side of the channel. I had lots of time to hope...
  9. Transalp
    Made a carb sync the other day from a cheapo water level I'd forgotten I owned (:rolleyes:) Anyway, after about twenty minutes of faffing and a some advanced 'zip tie' engineering, my gauge was good to go. Worked a treat, once I was familiar with the sensitivity of the throttle plate screw...
  10. Dominator / FMX
    Just wondered if anyone ever found or has a service manual for the NX650 Dominator for models newer than 88-89? The 88/89 is the only one I can find so far, and it's missing a few things for newer models such as my '95, for example the rear disk brake, the shorter inlet manifold, the different...
  11. Transalp
    Took my 2008 Transalp out for it's first ride of the season and started having all sorts of running problems after only a few miles. Cut the long story short, plug cap failure. When I removed it to check the plugs the bit that attaches to the top of the plug stayed attached to the plug...
  12. Africa Twin
    Hi I've just acquired this exhaust for my RD07a and noticed that the bracket is different from the one currently on the bike. On the new one the rear bracket is much longer, I'm guessing to fit directly to the rear subframe. The original one looked like this below (not mine - web image)...

  14. Transalp
    Hi, I know this topic has been done to death but i'm after a touring screen for my 600 transalp. I'm around 5'10 with average proportions. I've done a lot of reading and the MRA screens seem to come out well, but i'm not sure if the general reviews i've read are for the touring or touring...
  15. Transalp
    Hi there! I just bought very nice 89 Transalp and am looking for a low seat option. The only ones I can find here in the States are quite expensive and take quite some time to be ready. Anyone know of anything available across the pond, either new or used? Any insight would be greatly...
  16. For Sale / Wanted
    Hi folks I am looking for a carb insulator for an NX650 RD08. This has the shorter intake tube. My one is too long (a common complaint, I've found) If anyone has a spare, I'll have it for cash or favours. :D
  17. Dominator / FMX
    I've just taken this off my new SLR650, it's in very good condition and works perfectly without leaks. It has adjustable damping, set with the knurled ring at the bottom. It's slightly shorter than the standard shock and lowers the ride height by 2" or so -I've shown it next to an original mangy...
  18. Chatter
    Trying to find a new set of size 47 Infinity's... TCX have 'improved' the original with their EVO, which as far as I can see has done nothing apart from remove the shin protection and make them shorter...oh and upped the price a goodly amount:rolleyes: Any leads greatly appreciated...
  19. Transalp
    Hi all, Ive now taken the grips off the Alp but I cant seem to find any grips to fit. For some odd reason most grips seems to be 120-125mm long, whereas I have about 95mm throttle side and 90mm clutch side. Did the 600 Alp come with shorter grips? :confused: I could move the various 'bits' like...
  20. XR
    This may be useful to someone. In trying to reduce the ride height of my 2004 XR400R, I wound the rear shock preload off and dropped the front forks through the yokes. However, I then found the sidestand was to long with the bike in danger of tipping over. I needed a shorter sidestand. Rather...
