    Hi all, Sorry if this has already been discussed. I need to fit new front and rear tyres on my '88 Transalp. The Honda Manual says the rear tyres should be 120/90-17 on the rear and 90/90-21 on the front. However, most of the sites I've looked at for buying new tyres seem to think I should get...

  7. Transalp
    New here so hello to all :thumbright: I just bought a 1994 Transalp 600 ,and have been fixing a few age related issues. One issue I still have is that although the bike runs fine the tacho does not go past 1500rpm. I saw posts on other sites (after a google search for tacho issues) where...

    Searching up TA700 specs,I can't find any reference to the actual ready-to-ride wet weight. Any number of sites quote dry weight as 214kg. So, if that's correct, it puts the fuelled weight somewhere north of 230kg. That seems helluva heavy to me. Can anyone shed any light?

    Afternoon all, just wondered if anyone fancied clearing their Bongo before the Autumn/Winter sets in, watching the usual sites and FB pages (not to mention Evilbay) 3-3.5k is a reasonable chunk. Needs an aft roof and if converted then a rear not side conversion. Anyone? TIA
