  2. Engine Bars wanted.

    I'm after a set of engine bars for my 2007 Transalp 650, preferably used, condition is not an issue.

  3. Anyone looking for LED spotlights?

    I have just taken delivery of these, ebay item 291565702825 good strong fittings and very bright.

  4. Cree led lights

    Guys, Just bought some cheap and cheerful led spotlights and noticed that they have 3 wires, red ,yellow and black. Any idea why I would have 3 wires and is it safer to run them straight from the battery via a fuse and a handlebar switch?? Thanks in advance Alex

  7. do the front scoops need to be blocked or open ?

    Hi, the front scoops on my bike are currently odd. 1 is blocked off, the other is open. How is it supposed to be ? by scoops i mean the cut aways under the front lamp on my 1996 Transalp. Could I fit spotlights in there without fear of disrupting airflow ? Thanks Chris
