  1. What is this?

    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...

    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...

    Bike Comms & Audio
    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? Cheers, Kjell

  11. Transalp Chain

    Quick 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? Thanks Huw

  13. New V4 Africa Twin.

    OK it has weight and clearance issues, but you should see what this baby could do with knobblies! On the way down it was too steep in parts to park it in first gear with the engine off.. :confused:
  14. XL650 V4 - rough running on neutral throttle

    Hi All 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...

  17. 12V power adapter V4 Transalp

    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...
