    Hi, as anyone else had problems with the TA700 crankshaft position censor (CKP CENSOR) where the bike does not start, the FI light gives the 1 long & 9 short flashes (ckp censor fault) but after 3 or 4 attempts the bike will start !!! great bike but all these tempremental censors let it down...

    just if anyone is interested, over the winter i changed the complete front end of my TA700 with the USD front end from a 97/00 Aprila pegaso, and it was quite an easy swap, just had to change the bearings on the yoke shaft, modify the top yoke to accept the ignition switch & hiss, and fabricate...

    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?

    I'm taking my TA700 to Morocco in October and we'll be doing some riding in sand. I've been advised to get a foam air filter as apparently they filter out finer particles than other ones. Is it possible to get a foam air filter for the TA700? I can't find one. Thanks

    Where do all you lovely people get your inner tubes from? I've had a look in the usual places I buy my bike stuff from and none of them seem to stock tubes the right size for the TA700 (at least online).

    Hi, I didn't get a toolkit with my TA and would like something under my seat for emergencies etc. I can make up a set from spare tools but would prefer original if available but can't find one on the internet. Questions: Does anyone know where I can buy an original? Can some kind person list...

    Does anyone here have any recommendations for a decent map holder to fit the TA700 tank? I used a magnetic tank bag on my old bike but the plastic tank covers has ruined that. Tried a tank ring tank bag but the fuel cap is too far forward on the TA for this to work with anything of a decent...

    I've bought their centre stand for the TA700 but it came with no instructions and a quick search here revealed no hints about the general fitting method. So... Do I need to take anything off the bike? A quick look seems to show the side stand in the way. Do I grease the hinge pin during...

    We all know that the TA700 can suffer from wind turbulence and noise with the stock small screen. Coupled with my AGV Compact the noise tends to be very loud in my my ears and I always need to wear good quality ear protection. I'm planning a big trip to France and Spain next year and would like...

    If anyone is in a quest for rear rim this is a good opportunity. It is for TA700 but it should fit AT since it is 32 holes. I've ordered one for myself EDIT: Deleted wrong link

    I have a 2011 TA700 with original Honda luggage and recently I have found the mounting plate has a slight amount of movement. Is this normal or should I tighten it up with another washer/rubber washer. Thanks Graeme

    At last the weather allowed me to get the bike out of the garage and take some photos and video with the new Exhaust. The FUEL Exhaust is on , I took the baffle out so will see how it goes once the ice has gone! I think the new seat by Alistair Else (HERE) looks really good, you can also see...

    Having just purchased a TA700 for my wife, I would never have dreamed of buying one myself but what a pleasure it is to ride. Very relaxed riding position, engine..plenty of torque , high up riding position. I now find myself taking it for a ride quite often and ask myself why did Honda stop...

    I have just got a TA700, with a standard seat on it I'm 5 foot 11 inches tall, long arms and legs. I rode a TA 600 for many years and loved it. I can't seem to get comfortable on the TA700, The bars seem too far away and too low down. Hence its more like a "lean forward" sports riding...

    I bought this bike recently in a bit of a hurry to get back on the road after my previous bike was written off. In hindsight I was a bit hasty and it’s just not for me - I want to get another TA instead. I won’t be riding for 6 months so next weekend I was planning to ‘winterise’ the bike and...
