Wanted a Transalp for years ,,finally bought an old one for getting to work on

My question is ,,, can anyone give a quick description on exactly what i have to do do to balance the carbs Please ?

ie: How do i take Tank off (not looked yet have seen people say it's a Pain ?)

Where to connect me guages

Which screw to adjust (is it obviouse thru the air intake ??)

No manual yet ,,didn't get the result i wante from searching the forum

Just want to get this done asap with minimal hassles ,,,

Bike is a 1989 F plate XL600V

Wrong section ,,but while i am here ,,can anyone tell me what year ,,models etc ,,Rear shock i can buy to replace mine which is like a pogo stick ,,(looking for cheap 2nd hand )

Thankyou

connect the tubes to the vacuum takeoffs,one is obvious,the other is a blanking screw in the other cylinder that does not have a vacuum takeoff (obviously). Can't remember where the adjustment is on a 600,I know you have to adjust the 650 with the tank off and a fuel bottle to keep the carbs fed. If no one posts up a clearer answer I'll dig the manual out of my shed (still packed from the longest day ride) and let you know.

tamk off job on the 600 too

looking from the top above the carbs there is a passageway through the air box from the filter this gives access to the adjustment screw :thumbup:

No problem matey, raymo's done the necessary,same as the 650 apparently.
Was I right about it only having one vaccuum take off and a blank in the cylinder wall near the intake port you have to remove to screw in the balancer pipe Raymo?

yup

the rear take off ( left side is ) is used for the fuel tap.


so you just need to remove the screw from the front cylinder intake and fit to the carb balancer
well done that man :blob:
