Without wanting to open myself up to scorn can anyone please tell me what this is?
I think it's an automatic chain oiler but as my St1100 is a shaft drive I've never seen one? I have just picked up a 650V4 Transalp and is on the chain side of the bike but it looks empty- I don't even know where...
Had a great weekend at Dirtquake which takes place at the Adrian Flux arena in Kings Lynn,
loads of nutters on everything from scooters to 1100 sports bikes and choppers racing around a speedway track,
few serious racers having a go too , Guy Martin, Carl Foggarty, Steve Plater, Gary Johnston...
I have recently changed my brake pads, and fluid in all the lines and was wandering can someone point me in the direction of clutch fluid reservoir so I can change that as well. Many thanks
P.S. It's honda transalp xl 650 V4
Hi all, just bought the above, insurers are asking me which version of HISS I have, and I don't have a clue, neither does the internet by the look of it! Any ideas how to find out so I can get it insured?
Many thanks and I am guessing this will be the first of many questions...
I'm in the progress of buying a new Satnav.
I think I narowed it down to either the Garmin Zumo 390LM or the TomTom Rider V4.
Or are the others out there?
Any drawbacks on any of the two contenders?
Im going to be in the market to buy a transalp soon (Jan, Feb time) and just wandering what if any differences are there between the different years i.e. V4,V5,V6 etc
Is it just cosmetic or have there been any changes to the engine ?
Quick question.....is the Honda genuine chain/sprocket (full) set the same for a 2004 (V4) Transalp, as for a 2002 (V2) model?
I'm assuming genuine is about the best available ... if not, what?
My 2004 650 TA suddenly developed "character" on Friday. It's fine at tickover or on the power, but on a neutral throttle at normal road speeds I can feel it surging and fading.
It's not enough to change the sound of the engine, but I can really feel bike struggling. It's most apparent...
I know it's been speculated and talked about in the past but reading MCN online a minute a go it appears it's looking like it's going to be a new VFR1200

Is this old news????
In preparation for a trip to Spain & France in June, i decided to fit the 12V power adapter to my 05 V4 Transalp. Simple enough......
With the adapter fitted i'm slightly perplexed as to why a genuine honda accessory is as useless as this one once fitted? Correct me if...
ok silly thought......
but i have been looking at how to get the old beast to go a bit quicker, am doing 2,000 miles a month (for work), lots of motorways as well as dirt tracks...
have geared it up as far as i dare.
and am now looking at shoe-horning a VFR800 lump into the bike, we have...
