  1. Does the TA front end fit on a Dommie?

    Dominator / FMX
    Hi again. So todays question is.......... Can I fit the Transalp front end, including twin discs onto the Dommie? I read that the TA has 41mm forks, as does the Dommie and I'd really like twin discs on mine. So have you done it, or do you know anyone who has? If not I could be the first when I...
  2. Stripping the rear suspension

    Africa Twin
    Just finished both AT's today. Took out everything packed them with grease The RD03 and 04 have the same linkages. The RD07A is slightly different (Pin with the Allen key) Had to replace the linkage in the RD03 as the bearings were shot in one of the linkages. Got a replacement from Hamart. So...
  3. If Honda re-released the transalp 600 now...would you buy one??

    I was thinking about how there just isn't an equivalent to the TA 600 in todays marketplace. It's all either 250cc or 750cc bikes. The 700 translp is just plain ugly. I think the 600 transalp is still the best looking one, a real design classic. If Honda re-released the 600, everything exactly...
