    Hi folks, I was just servicing the sparkplugs and coolant when I saw a ripping of paint on de head of from cylinder, just above the headgasket. The same way the radiator paint is also tearing apart. It doesn't seem to me a paint job fail for its own, but something caused by a leak. Help will be...

    So I was taking apart the front headlight assembly today to try and fix an annoying vibrating noise from the instrument cluster cover. When I was taking off the headlight cowls I noticed a few broken clips (which I had noticed before but ignored) and thought, how much does a new one cost - too...

    Hi all, A week doesn't go by when I don't end up spending money on the bike! It seems that I may have bent my bars a little bit in an off-road tumble as my hand guards now hit the screen on one side when going full lock. I've been looking at new bars and am struggling to work out what is...

    Hi, Newbie here; I bought an XL700 last year with the aim of branching into the duel sport life.This weekend I took my first off road course on the bike, lots of fun and am eager to get out more on the trails. When I bought the bike it had the Givi bars fitted (which don't seem to sit nicely...

    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...

    Just wondering whether anyone knows of a suitable source for replacement barrel lock for my Honda Topbox on my Transalp XL700? The one on at the moment is getting more and more fiddly to open every day and is only a matter of time before it refuses to open. The OE replacement lock set is Honda...

    Hi, I haven't been around for a while, having sold the transalp to my brother. He uses it mostly for touring, and so finds the setup of connector pipe and Leo Vince exhaust a bit loud (but it's great fun for hooning around). I've reinstalled the original HEAVY! silencer box for him and am now...

    I'd like to experiment with a modification to the rear brake lever of my XL700 Transalp but want to keep my original lever in case it goes horribly wrong! Are the splines the same across the different Transalp models (or any other Hondas)? This would open up the choice of spare parts/price...

    I've just had to have my XL700 Transalp in for a service. They've informed me that the main stand is knocking against the frame and the cat because it is missing a "bump stop". Must admit that I recall it banging when you put it up but think it has done that since the day I bought it. Could...

    Hi,Can anyone recommend a good foot stand extension plate for the XL700?I've had a Cameltoe fitted for a couple of year and although it looked good I was not impressed with the way it bent with use and the bolts were continually working loose. So loose in fact that it now lies somewhere along...

    I'm currently running on a pair of Anakee 3's on my XL700 Transalp which have been great. I've just had my MOT (failed on headstock bearings and too much play in the clutch) and as an advisory they've stated that the tyres are worn close to the legal limit. Now, I'm going to query this when I...

    I've just been checking the valve clearances on my XL700 and I've hit an issue. The rear cylinder was all okay but the front was so out that you couldn't even insert a 0.05 feeler gauge. I adjusted the valves to the right settings and checked several times that they were correct before...

    I'm having a problem with my 2009 XL700 cutting out on me. It runs great when ridden BUT the problem is with the idle speed. It won't stay at around the 1200rpm level that it should! So when you start it you have to keep revving it and when you stop in traffic, at junctions, etc you have to rev...

    Hi I am trying to find a way of adjusting the rider foot pegs position on my XL700. The stock footpegs are in my way when I stop at the traffic light and I want to move the 2-3 cm to the front or to the back. I know that SW-Motech had some pricey kits for the XL700, but are not available...
