hi all

i have just purchased a transalp 650 from a friend who had it stored in his garage for the last 6 years
its only done 6,800 miles from new on a 2002 model

the battery was completely flat and being from someone i know i purchased it


upon getting it delivered the next day i replaced the battery and fuel started the bike up only to find it smoked like crazy


so the carbs have been cleaned by a motorcycle shop

back on and still smokes like crazy ?

the bike is in an amazing condition apart from the smoke

so i would like to get some info on a transalp 650 engine if anyone has a complete unit for sale or would anyone be interested in buying the bike ?

any help would be appreciated

im based in plymouth

Blue or white smoke? Hopefeylly you've changed the oil and all other fluids and serviced the brakes & replaced tyres after such a long lay up.

Have you taken it for good ride to clear its lungs?

Compression test?
