    Hi There, I have a 1997 Transalp XL600V. Its my first venture into the world of bikes and I am loving it so far. Simple question (I hope!). Which type of coolant should I use in the bike? OAT Antifreeze or Silicate Antifreeze? Does it matter? If so why does it matter? Thanks in advance! Paul

    Hello fellow Alpiners. Alp (1991) and I have been out and about in the world for almost three years now. We've done a fair bit of k's and had the occasional spill. A bad one in Australia particularly left a mark but still managed to put the bike back together again. Now it is time to make this...

    Hello fellow Alpiners. My '91 XL600v has blessed me with many kilometres around the world and we still have many more to do. We've been on the road for over two years and done about 80k together and the bike has roughly done around 150k. I would tell you the exact number but the speedo unit got...

    Hey there TA fellows! Prepping for the The Big Trip, would you recommend to: 1. Replace clutch disks just in advance? No slipping, no smell, nothing extraordinary now. 2. Replace bearings? We have (a) front and (b) rear wheel, (c) steering and (d) swing arm bearings. Any of them, or none, or...

    My trusty old 1999 XL600V still has its original exhaust, which now has as much coming out of the sides as the rear. I'd appreciate opinions/advice as to what to fit as a replacement system. The bike is fitted with a Givi Monolock pannier system...no idea whether this restricts fitting on some...

    Hi, I am wondering ... What is the most suited rear aftermarket shock for the Transalp 600 with Intimidators in the fork? Which is the best value for money and still as good as it gets? Anyone tried HyperPro ?

    Right, The tranny is "much loved", well ridden and all the rest. Has served me well over winter but as summer is nearing I am reminded that this bike was meant to be for my other half to go touring on. The MOT runs out on the 3rd of April and it will need work to get through which I just don't...

    Hi! I'm new in the forum and also buing my first dual purpose bike. I have own a 650cc Kawasaki street bike for 10 years, but never a Honda.

    Hello. Does anyone know if the same vintage (1989-1990) TransAlp key-ignition assemblies are compatible with the 1991-1992 Africa Twin XRV750 and 1989-1990 XL600V Transalp? I need to replace an ignition on an XRV750 in the USA and may be able to purchase a Transalp ignition locally. Any...
