  1. Transalp
    Hi all, Sorry if this has already been discussed. I need to fit new front and rear tyres on my '88 Transalp. The Honda Manual says the rear tyres should be 120/90-17 on the rear and 90/90-21 on the front. However, most of the sites I've looked at for buying new tyres seem to think I should get...

    Am I alone in thinking that my TA front tyre looks more like a bicycle tyre? I assume it is unadvisable and probably dangerous to put a bigger one on? Informed comments would be greatly appreciated. thanks

    I have a slightly manky rear rim from an RD07: 17" diameter, 3.5" wide, 32 hole. It's an unknown make, gold anodized. It has started to corrode around the spoke holes. It is not missing any significant amount of metal yet, but the surface anodizing has gone, so it will be susceptible to...

    Bought too much ride-on, just done all our bikes and left with 4 spare bottles. This is enough to do 2 complete bikes (depending on tyre size). Good stuff, seems to get the best reviews over slime etc. If anyone wants it, then all 4 bottles plus the fitting kit/instructions etc = 20 quid...

  20. XR
    I'm going to put road rubber on a spare set of XR400 wheels to save the knobblies for 'best'. I've had a few searches through the forum for info and done some Googling but haven't found anything relevant posted recently. In the US supermoto circles they call it a Sportsman setup and have super...
