    Well my radiator has obviously been hit by a stone and I've got 2-3 pin prick holes that are leaking. What has anyone used to fix this problem? I was going to just buy some Radweld but I've read a few comments saying that that will clog up a bike radiator as the tones are finer that the ones...

    As a relative newbie to the world of Transalpery, I have a question ; is the 600 TA noted for having a particularly heavy throttle? or do I just need to eat more spinach? Throttle moves nice and freely with the cable(s) unhooked from the carbs so it's not the cable(s) seizing up but it is...

    It's reading posts like this on FB that makes me want to stop using it. It's not anyone from here. This is actually not too bad, some of them need the Rosetta Stone to be deciphered. Never pay again for live sex! | Hot girls doing naughty stuff for free! | Chat for free!

    I get quite a disconcerting "clang" when my forks bottom out, and they bottom out more often than I'd like. I weigh 15 stone and am 6'5" tall and the bike has done about 36,000 miles so I reckon I should go for something a bit stiffer. Is this a known upgrade? what have others used...

    I know this has been discussed before, but perhaps there is newer information around. I have an 08 Transalp 700 and I really need to sort out the rear suspension (and perhaps front too, but I think the rear is causing the problems). I've tried adjusting the damping to both extremes but still...
