I bought a new (to me) tank and rear end off eBay the other day and have chopped bits of the rear frame and original tank mounts to get them to fit so there's no going back.
So what do you think?
I have no intention of ever making this bike a pretty show winning bike and the seat will be...
It has been nine years since our last post on the Forum. That came the night our T/Alp went to a new home as it was too tall for my wife & at the time we needed bikes we could both use as required, as we only had one car & both worked.
Lot's of bikes & lots of up's & down's since then, we...
My TA 600 sometimes jumps out of 2nd gear under accelleration. I think the problem is worn gear selector forks
ie these (not my pic)
has anyone here ever dismantled their transalp gearbox to change these selectors? if so, how easy is it to do this? is it the right hand side of the engine? do...
Simply put the trip master on my 2002 RD07A is dead. It has been worked on a couple of times amd many capacitors changed but its now dead. RIP.
As you can imagine its difficult to calculate my fuel consumption during an adventure ride.
Could you guys please advice on what would be the best...
Hi Twin lovers, so my 2002 RD07A starting having problems starting and would take a couple of triea with the choke on to get it to run. but once its on it would not idle for than a minute.
I changed all the plugs and it worked like a charm for a couple of days. And jow its back to the same...
Hi, so I'm selling my gsxr 750 tomorrow to buy a 2002 RDo7a from a friend of mine. the bike is in pristine condition well taken care of. the owner is a specialist mech and has worked for both bmw and harley.
Been on the forum for a couple of weeks learning about this awesome machine.
A little embarrassed posting this considering how much I've worked on bikes, but help needed.
As it says on the tin, no dipped or main beam.
Done the obvious, new bulb, tested old one, all good.
Checked fuse and tested it, good.
Stuck multimeter on headlight connector, no power...
Since iv bought my africa 3 weeks ago i notice that the carbs are sitting offside on the engine.
At first i didnt pay much attention to it but when i tried to reassemble the airbox i noticed that the airbox sleev doesnt over-lap the left (rear cylinder) carb and actually the cylinder worked...
Just brought an unrestored 1963 Ariel Leader, speedo reads 5000 miles, last tax disc 1969, been in a shed since 1978. It has nearly every extra that were available for the Leader. Plan at this stage, to leave it unrestored and get it running.
Even the tyres look good, no cracks and proper...
I've had no work this week, but to occupy myself, I prurchased something on eBay, which arrived this morning.
A fibreglass repair kit..... wooohooooo, I've never worked with this stuff, and I'm having a ball, making a mess, and stinking the place out!! One added advantage is, I'm as high as a...
I have worked for Motad since the 80s
We are looking at reintroducing a range of stainless steel crashbars (we called them Desert bars) that we used to sell for Transalp, Afica Twin etc
Any interest out there?
For which models?
I lowered the suspension 1.25" on my 2008 xL1000v varadero and now the side stand holds the bike almost vertical. Have heard the sport bike side stand has worked, but can find no details as to which one. Has anyone out there had any experience with this? Or should i just find a welder and...
still being very new to the 650 i'm looking for tank bag recommendations.
it should be:
about 15L volume (small to medium size)
should have a map pocket on top
not interfere with the steering
the bike is blue. i'm also considering a matching tank cover.
I am passing this on to you because it definitely worked for me today, and we all could probably use more calm in our lives. Some doctor on tv this morning said the way to achieve inner peace is to finish all the things you have started. So I looked around my house to see things I'd started and...
I missed the channel 4 program on Monday called How Britain Worked presented by Guy Martin but have just watched it on 4OD. Well worth a look if for no other reason than listening to Guy's down to earth obsevations on how the old railway workers had to really graft for a living. Seeing the steam...
Transalp Baglux cover
Bike gone, so here is a Baglux tank cover in red.
Condition is very good, with no obvious marks or scuffs.
£40 including signed for postage.
I will only post to the UK mainland, or you can collect from East Sussex and I'll knock a bit off.
Now before you guys from down south start to complain about fekin rain......
It rained last night on Skye :(
I say this because it hasn't done so for the last 5 weeks. a bloody record I can tell you. I've worked on the west for a few years off and on and I think it's the only time that I...
