  5. Electrex regulator for Transalp

    Transalp
    Has anybody else fitted one of these? If so, did you have problems? I have! The slots In the regulator did not allow the studs to pass through. Today I was near their factory so I popped in and one of the chaps there widened the slots. Tonight I go to fit it and the studs now go through the...

    Chatter
    How many people drop their bikes just getting on the damn things. Was at the H Cafe bike night tonight and some old geezer had an XJR1200. My mate shouted "your bike"... I ran over and this old codger had dropped his bike next to mine. I had mine on the centre stand and luckily all that had...
  8. Transalp Newbie

    Transalp
    Hello all, Recently purchased a 95 transalp 600 to give me a break from my daily drive Vivaro van. I didn't want to spend a great deal, just something cheap, reliable and could be used all round, all weather. When it showed up for sale on gumtree locally, I took the plunge. £600 bought me a...
  9. A bit of good news.

    Dominator / FMX
    As some of you might be aware ,I have not been right in the head for a couple of years and been on chemo to try and fix it. My head aint quite fixed and as a result I have not been allowed to drive the heavy goods vehicles that was my job. I have just been accepted for a three year...

  11. Baby Varadero 125 V4 - Poor lights, Help?

    Varadero
    Hello all My V4 has really, really poor lights. When i bought it earlier in the year it had LED bulbs in which were OK for summer and looked really nice. They were however USELESS in the wet for some reason. and also dry or wet the dripped beam seemed non existant. I left them all summer...
  12. Don't forget to zip up those jackets

    Chatter
    Got pulled tonight filtering through traffic on the regular commute home down the Strand in Liverpool. Bike cop, blue lights, siren the works, I'm thinking what did I do? Its taxed, tested, insured, I don't run red lights and generally abide by the rules of the road. Pulled because i didn't have...
  13. Fuel pump stopped working, give it a few taps and now it works but is leaking!

    Africa Twin
    The bike wouldn't start this morning and was showing all the signs that the original pump had seized. I came back to the bike tonight and gave the fuel tap a few knocks with a bit of wood and the bike started. Unfortunately the pump in now leaking from a part of the pump hidden by the black...
  14. SW Motech engine bars

    Africa Twin
    Are these made out of mild steel? I noticed a bloody annoying rattle tonight. Got off bike several times to try and find it and it turns out to be the Offside rear mounting. The weld has snapped. I will need to take them off and weld it back together, assuming its steel. Will need to do it at...
  15. Newbie with an '89 600

    Transalp
    Hi all, I've had an alp sat waiting for me to ride it for the past month and a half, I finally got to ride it tonight, starting the relationship off great with what I think is the cdi problem (went over a bump, bike is now a heavy single cylinder). I'd only ridden about 6miles. I thought I'd...

    Chatter
    Been to Morrisons late tonight with Herself and grabbed a huge bag of end of the day bread rolls and some nice rashers ready for Bacon rolls for brekkie .... Soooo looking forward to tomorrow morning's game. Sensible sort of time too, as I can get a game in and do some work, AND watch one of...
  17. Weeping fork seals - urgent HELP!!!

    Mechanical Advice
    Just doing some minor fettling on the NX400 tonight, swapping to folding gear lever, chain oiler and the like. My bodged rear pannier rack almost completed and ready to go on tomorrow once the paint was dry. Then I was looking around at the front end and noticed a spot of damp on the front...
  18. A few day in France

    Ride Reports and Pictures
    Wasn't going to bother putting a ride rep up but TVs so rubbish tonight I thought I may entertain the users of xrv. Me and Cabbage decided a while ago a trip to France was on the cards as we hadn't done much in motorcycling. My enthusiasm has definitely been on a downward spiral for a while now...
  19. Oh, what have I done....

    Transalp
    Ahem. Hello it's "have a go Dave" again, needing to stop fiddling. Basically, I now have a terrible 'wobble' about to go full tank-slapping nightmare and kinda need a bit of advice before A) I kill myself, or B) I accidentally kill my Alp lol ! Are you sitting comfortably? Then I'll...
