I'm good at sharing ... ...................Thanks Russ I'm assuming a CBR600 donor?

"Hey Trex, I did a little research and found that the early 90's CBR had the same fork diameter as the TA ( 41mm ) so the front end is a straight swap. Forks wheels brakes speedo drive, everything including the front fender is the same paint code as the 90 TA. They just slip right in, then plumb in the brakes, even uses the TA master cyl. , then use a speedo cable from a 91 st1100 and the speedo is correct.
On the rear I had to bore the chain adjusters on the TA swingarm for the CBR axle, fab a axle spacer and a guide block for the disc carrier, for the rear master cyl. I fabbed a bracket that fit under the pass peg mount used the CBR rear master cyl had to offset the master cyl brake and pedal connection to use the TA brake pedal.
If you attempt this conversion let me know and I will shoot you some closeup pics.....
It really handles good, feels a little twitchy in the bars because of the wide handlebars, but it is a really fun ride.
Russ "

Love these 'sport' Alps! Bike looks like it was made to be that way, like they offered a road and dirt version of the bike. Nice job to the guys that have done it. I'm a big front/rear end swap guy as the late 80's/early 90's bikes are my favorites but usually have poor suspensions. Both of my 1993 Zephyrs have ZRX1100 front ends, one also has a rear and the other will be getting a complete rear or a 5.5 inch rear wheel swap to allow modern sport bike rubber. My old CB1000 got rid of the 18" wheels for 17's, my old Zehyer 750 got a full ZRX suspension and wheels..... and on and on.
I'm surprised nobody has a website just for making and selling custom spacers to allow wheel swaps. I haven't run a lathe since shop class in the late 80's but it seems like a good little side business since around here machine shops laugh at you when you ask them to make something like a spacer. Well, they laugh or charge you $100.

Trouble setting up a vapor computer on 2003 650 Transalp

Hi Guys,

I finally managed to fit a trail-tech vapor computer to my 650 transalp, what a pain in the **** of a job that was.

Fortunately I have retained the stock instruments so I can compare old with new, so I have been able to fix the various errors.

I have it all working OK except for the tacho function: If it's correct at low revs it's out at high revs, and vice versa. No amount of messing with different programmes has fixed it. If anybody has nailed this on a 650 transalp, can they please get in touch

thanks
