Hi all,

Honda of bournemouth have a 15% off, so i thought i would buy myself a chain and sprockets kit, seeing as how mine has 20,000 miles on it and must someday be replaced (even though it is still set near the "new" mark)...on their website two chains are identified one is marked at gbp 120 and one is marked at gbp 72 (Drive chain D and drive chain R respectively). both of these are on the parts fiche for the transalp 650v of 2004, which therefore means i think that both of them can be used for my alp???

can one of you educate me please?

bloody @@@@@@@@@

i have just received the following email

Hello
Thank you for your enquiry. A genuine Honda chain and sprocket kit for your bike is £214.43. The postage to send it to you is £30.00. With the 15% on-line discount the total is £213.29.

Is this realistic guys? their website states gbp 120 for the kit....

thanks

Reuben

Hello
The 15% offer finishes on Monday. The web site has been undergoing Honda price updates for the last couple of days. Any parts that have increased in price should now show the new 2012 prices. The chain and sprocket kit is now £214.43.

Kind regards

I recently replaced my c+s on the alp too and got the std 15t front @ £30 from david silvers plus a new spacer/locking clip and 2 new bolts as mine were showing wear.

The rear sprocket is a jt for £25 inc postage and the chain is a DID x ring 118 /525 you dont need the fancy gold one and the black one is the same minus the supposed gold spray to prevent corrosion but you dont get that in Malta !! I paid £80 from scotland off Ebay..

But you will pay more in postage so check your suppliers or Italy.

check the rear sprocket bolts for "round heads" and replace as they arent expensive..and have the so quite sound again and use LOCTITE on the bolts.

Check Wemoto prices, I got my last chain there. I've covered 20K mile on that chain and still looking good.
Probably get front sprocket from a Honda dealer.
So, don't rush it for Monday when there are alternatives.
I'll check over the weekend which my chain was, but it's lasting like a good'un

Can anyone confirm whether the chain and sprocket kits for the transalp 2000-2002 is the same as that for the 2006 model?
David silver has a much better price, but they only supply bikes older than 10 years so they cannot supply me!!
many thanks

The main difference between the post 2003 Transalp is the electrics the headlight is always on.

and i guess the seat upholstery;)
Possibly, t I think the seat mounts are identical so swapping them out is not out of the question.
