I have been looking at the requirements for ULEZ bikes, and I cannot work out if my 600 will pass or not? I called Honda and they cannot give me a CoC for the bike (too old). Has anyone had the emissions (I think it is only the NoX output that they care about?!) tested? Am I able to get...
I'm after some help/advice about the oil warning lights on the 700.
Riding in to work today - second day back after a week or so off - and one of the red lights on the dash starts flashing. Initially it blinked a couple of times, but then came on and off under acceleration and braking...
I’m on changing the output shaft on my 700 XL and having started it up after the rebuild I am getting a very light noise from the clutch side, my question is there anything that is peculiar to the clutch to make it noisy. When I pull in the clutch lever the noise disappears.
, there is also a...
Hi, just joined this forum as I have just bought a very nice imported ( USA ) 1972 XL 350 that was restored 11 years ago and not been used since. It has been part of a private collection including a Vincent Black Shadow. Plan to put oil down the plug hole for a few days and see how the engine...
A set of Givi (I think!) crash bars that fit all 600 Transalps (according to EBay sellers)
They are used and have scratches and a small dent (filled)
They have been given a coat of black paint to preserve them.
They were removed from a 1992 TA (pictured) as I am making a naked TA.
Transalp 600 & XRV750 rear lift link
(Lift handle, silencer sold)
Transalp XL600V 88-94 & XRV750 RD03/4 Extended Rear Shock link for raised ride height.
I removed this lengthened link from a friends 1992 Transalp 600 as it was too tall for him. I now have that Transalp myself as he was...
Started to change the output shaft on my 700 XL.
All the bolts holding the chrome heat shields and the painted heat shields were sized in so that took me around 4 hours to do,
I’m a slow worker, drill out re-tap the holes and order new bolts.
The rest went as I expected it to no real drama...
I think I need a new battery as mine gets discharged sometimes like this morning I couldn't start the bike. Any recommendations? I don't want to get a lithium one if I don't have to as they are over 100 quid but I will get one if it's worth it I use the bike every day rain or shine...
Now that I've moved over to an Africa Twin I have a few Pooratech protection bits for sale.
These were made by myself to go on my Transalp XL700V (ABS).
The parts are all made from stainless steel. They have been on my old bike for about 6 years but still look in good condition. They've not...
I'm new to the XL, I have what I thought is a 1989 XL250R, when I've searched the internet the R model seems to have stopped production in 1987 and was replaced with the NX250, can anyone confirm this.
I'm the proud yet frustrated owner of a Transalp xl650v6 which I brought new in August 2007. Ever since then I've had a love hate relationship with the bike especially when it comes to maintenance and repairs.
Firstly let me admit that I am a sinner! Hailing originally from New...
I fancy a change and I am thinking of putting my 2009/10 XL700VA Transalp up for sale.
It's in good condition and regularly maintained. Lastbig service was undertaken by the dealer and re-set the valve clearances.
It's got 67,000+ on the clocks.
Has the OEM Honda topbox on and is in the...
Would anyone (preferably in the UK) have a straight headlamp/fairing sub frame they may be interested in selling? (Picture attached.)
Don't mind if it's rusty and in need of painting as long as it's not bent.
If so, please send me a message with how much you'd like for it posted to Surrey...
