  1. YSS Rear Shock on 600 Alp - Anyone tried one?

    Transalp
    Thinking of spoiling the old machine and replacing the 21year old rear shock. The YSS units that Wemoto sell seem to get great reports when fitted to the little CRF250L, so I was thinking of trying one out. Anyone on here tried one on a 600 Alp? I have prices up a Wilbers for it as well -...
  2. VIN/Tire Pressure/Model Year Sticker Location?

    Dominator / FMX
    In the box of parts that came with the '89 NX650 that I just bought, I found the metal plate/sticker that shows the VIN, tire pressure info, model year, etc. Where does this thing belong on the bike? I want to glue it back on, but I can't find it on parts diagrams.

  4. Best Waterproof Helmet

    Helmets
    I'm currently wearing a Shoei Neotec Mk1. The visor leaks a fair bit when it rains. The Pinlock insert seems to shrink and fit poorly, therefore it mists up. The leaking visor causes the misting to accelerate. I contacted Pinlock and they sent me a new insert. It also shrunk over time and now...
  5. 650 headlight bulb

    Transalp
    So after 31,500 miles the headlight bulb dip filament gave up on my 650 the first thing that's ever gone wrong with the bike :D I found out when I switched on the ignition thirty five miles away from home in the pitch black :( and so the beam adjuster came in really handy as it let me lower the...
  6. Brake caliper piston question

    Transalp
    My "front-end" saga continues with the discovery of seized brake caliper pistons and brittle caliper piston seals (that have been in there since 2001) Having never done this before.....Is this piston good for re-use? It seems to slide in and out of the bore ok, but looks a bit pitted/scored?
  7. Help identifying right colour panel

    Transalp
    Hi, I have a red 1999 XL600V Transalp with a damaged headlamp cowl. I have found a replacement cowl online which is red but I'm not sure the colour will match. Does anyone know if there were different shades of red used on this model/year? I've attached a picture of my bike. It's quite an...

  9. RD07 GFK rear tank fuel line

    Africa Twin
    Greeting from Austria! Since i saw many Twins with rear tanks in this forum, i got to ask you a few questions. Short story: I bought a modified RD07 1995 last year which needed some love, stripped it this winter, removed everything the previous owner built, checked and overhauled pretty much...

  11. Rear Caliper Sleeve

    Dominator / FMX
    I just made myself one of these sleeves out of stainless steel for the rear caliper on a 96 RD08 (part No14 in the link below) hoping i'll never have to replace it again. Its a cheep enough part but i wanted an excuse to use the grooving tool i bought :D I made two so have one spare if anyone is...
  12. Dragged out...

    Ride Reports and Pictures
    Insured, taxed and dragged out of my brothers pigeon loft where it's been resting since early September last year (shocking, I know...) after a 24hr charge, dust the bloom of, kick the tyres, prime the carb & she started first prod. Yay, great to be back out on an Alp [emoji41] Sent from my...
  13. A HUGE problem on my Transalp xl 700v 2011 model

    Transalp
    This applies to a 2011 model XL 700V. It has gone 53000 km. The problem started at about 50000 km. Is there anyone in Norway who has had the same symptoms? Or is it a Reodor Felgen out there who has some smart input? I posted this last year and got some tips, but without result. Have gone in and...

    Ride Reports and Pictures
    600 Alp - Loaded test run Well, after over 400 miles since yesterday morning, I think I can safely say that the 21 year old Alp is fairly sorted. Took a 120 mile run over to the Red Squirrel camp site at Glencoe Saturday morning and met up with a fellow Alp rider. Red Squirrel camp site...
  15. Non-running RD04 in Sussex

    What's it worth?
    Hello people. Long time no see, etc. Not been around here in yonks due to, well, life and things like that. You know how it is. Anyway, I finally got to the point where I have admitted I am never going to live anywhere with a garage where I can rebuild my old RD04, so I think the time has...
  16. RD07 Blue seat?

    Africa Twin
    Did any of the RD07's have a blue seat? Mine's a 2001 year and fancy a change but don't really want to sway from the original bike?

  19. The Holy Grail - Workshop Manual

    Africa Twin
    Hi all, I've quite a bit of work to do this year on my '91 RD04 and I'm wondering where's the best place to buy a workshop manual? I've seen some for crazy money on eBay... Anywhere else I should be looking? Thanks in advance, Dar Sent from my SM-G935F using Tapatalk
