  1. Newbie with stupid question...

    I nearly bought a Transalp when they first came out. But didn't. Loved the look of it though. Now, I've just bought a 2004 Transalp. Question: does old style bodywork from the original fit a 2004 or has the frame changed as well as the bodywork on the later ones. It's not such a stupid question...
  2. Malaysian Airlines MH370 - Theories?

  7. 1987 XR250 exhaust

    Hi, first post here. I have an 87 XR250 with a rotted out exhaust, the header pipe. It's no longer available from Honda so I'm looking for an aftermarket one I guess. Anyone know of a company who make one?? If worst comes to worst maybe a custom made pipe but i'm guessing that will cost!!

  12. TA splines: how to avoid the worst?

    Whynot's thread made me think: How could one limit the chances of / rate at which output splines might wear down? Something like smearing a gasket sealer over the splines to give a resisitant, elastic cushion to the sprocket's movement on acceleration/decceleration?
