So I was taking apart the front headlight assembly today to try and fix an annoying vibrating noise from the instrument cluster cover. When I was taking off the headlight cowls I noticed a few broken clips (which I had noticed before but ignored) and thought, how much does a new one cost - too...
A week doesn't go by when I don't end up spending money on the bike! It seems that I may have bent my bars a little bit in an off-road tumble as my hand guards now hit the screen on one side when going full lock.
I've been looking at new bars and am struggling to work out what is...
Started the bike up (2008 XL700VA) this morning and noticed that when I started up the ABS light started to flash (18 times or so) and then as soon as I started moving it turned off. I rode the bike twice yesterday for around 40kms and didn't notice anything like this so it seems to...
Newbie here; I bought an XL700 last year with the aim of branching into the duel sport life.This weekend I took my first off road course on the bike, lots of fun and am eager to get out more on the trails. When I bought the bike it had the Givi bars fitted (which don't seem to sit nicely...
I am in the middle of converting my US-spec Transalp to an Africa Twin RD03. The frame and most parts carry over to both models. I am using all original Africa Twin parts when possible and upgrade parts elsewhere. All parts are being powder coated or refurbished.
In the end...
Afternoon. My first post here.
Just acquired a scruffy 2002 Transalp 650. However, all seems reasonably sound with history etc.
However, clutch seems very heavy, even with new cable. Before I dismantle, any thoughts please?
Perhaps just bunged up with crud from the past 36,000 miles?
Transalp 650 rear carrier with fittings to also fit XRV750 RD07/7a
As I have now fitted my Africa Twin (750) with an original carrier the Transalp 650 one that I had fitted is now for sale. The rack itself was not modified but I made some fittings so it would fit the Africa twin as described...

More bits from my ‘naked’ TA project look at the pictures

A set of Givi (I think!) crash bars that fit all 600 Transalps (according to EBay sellers)
They are used and have scratches and a small dent (filled)
They have been given a coat of black paint to preserve them.
They were removed from a 1992 TA (pictured) as I am making a naked TA.
Transalp 600 & XRV750 rear lift link SOLD
(Lift handle, silencer sold)
Transalp XL600V 88-94 & XRV750 RD03/4 Extended Rear Shock link for raised ride height.
I removed this lengthened link from a friends 1992 Transalp 600 as it was too tall for him. I now have that Transalp myself as he was...
New member question - Hello recently bought a 2008 transalp 650 which I am enjoying riding much more than the GS1100 I just got rid of (too heavy !)
Anyway, wonder if someone can help identify the pannier rack that my bike has fitted from the attached photo. The bike did not come with panniers...
Has anyone here replaced their steering head bearings? If so...how did you remove the bearing 'race' that is on the lower yoke? This thing...
The internet suggests
- using a chisel
- using an angle grinder
- using a dremel
- using two screwdrivers
- using some sort of special tool
Now that I've moved over to an Africa Twin I have a few Pooratech protection bits for sale.
These were made by myself to go on my Transalp XL700V (ABS).
The parts are all made from stainless steel. They have been on my old bike for about 6 years but still look in good condition. They've not...
My ‘93 Transalp 600 was putting out 16 volts when I bought it a few months ago, and had had some meltdown in the distant last. It had an Electrexworld reg/rec on it.
This morning I fitted a brand new aftermarket reg/rec to it. Wired it up, mounted it on a nice alloy heat sink plate of my own...
This is a long shot but I figured I would give it a shot. I have a 1996 transalp in the blue/navy colour combo.
I have badly damaged my front cowl and offside front side panel.
Would anyone happen to have any fairings in this colour combo that they can sell?
If not I will have to suck...
