Hi, I am a newbie wondering if ATs' electrical systems are generally problem-free or if they are the softy kind.
I am a Transalp rider (400cc '97) and many Transalps including mine seem to develop electrical problems (such as one cylinder intermittently dead, etc.) on getting older. I am considering switching to a second-hand AT, so if you wise AT owners could enlighten my ignorance, I would be grateful if you could answer the following questions:
1/ Is the AT's electrical system built of concrete or is it rather softy?
2/ Transalps and ATs have a distinctive family look, but when I have a look at the forums, I find the complaints are different: more electrical system complaints for the Transalps, more fuel pump complaints for the AT. So more generally, what are the not-so-good sides of the AT?
Thanks beforehand for sharing your immense experience in the matter

It's only the older Transalps that suffer with the old CDI's, the newer models have much the same set-up as the AT's (without the fuel pump :wink: ).
Think the Japanese AT's are better built than the Italian & Spanish built 'Alps :oops:
Transalps have better seats though :)



I'll get me coat.

Thanks, wheeliebin, I guess I should get a 750 Transalp model '05 if all those rumors of a new '05 model become reality to enjoy the best of both worlds...
Happy riding!
