I doubt they will sell you direct, as large as they are I feel certain they only sell to distributors in the US. I have been told that even Tucker Rocky now carrys CDI's for TA's, probably the Argentinean brand.

I would find the best price you can and then go into your local Honda dealer and just ask them if they will match online discounter prices and give them the link to where you found the price. Incoming shipping via Honda is free so all you would pay is the tax which will probably be less than the shipping if you ordered one from a discounter.

Thanks and welcome to this site. Transalp CDI's are plentiful and easily obtained here in the US, I think everyone is just looking for the least costly and the best deal.

ok , but now i have 2 questions, did anybody a modification on the stock rear suspension of a TA 650? I have a RD04 AT suspension here and the U from that one is ca 1,5 cm longer than that from the TA. Im looking for somebody who can give me the answer to the question, is that enough to match with the AT fork?

And the other question is, did anybody put a AT swing arm in the XLV 650?
A mechanic here told me that it would not be easy to put it in.

I found also a nice priced front for a AT if you are interested looks here:

Thanks for your answers.

I bought a pair off EBay for 132.00 shipped back in March from BPElectrical they have them listed for 89.00 each right now. If your not in a hurry they put them on sale from time to time hence the above price for a pair I have seen for as low as 59.00 each a couple of years back

It was an old Triumph main bearing that failed

Glad to hear the TA's are tough. My old Triumph failed years ago. It was probably 50 miles to the town, in a head wind, no less. Oil got on the points and caused it to run on one cylinder. Nice to hear CDI's are available. I should buy one, just in case.
Love to see the photos of newer TA's, disc brake on the back and all.

xl650 stuff

Hi transAfrica.

unfortunately the xrv750 and xrv650 alloy swing arms wont fit the xl650..but they do fit the xl600v...

As for rear suspension just flip the lower linkage gives 25mm lift on rear shock but dosent alter the original shock travel lengths..

most fit ktm front shocks in europe as they are far better in everyway..

lots on the xl650 on xrv.ork the uk web site..

transalp modifications

Hy guys

I'm new here and i read some pages before, but it's difficul to read 1000 pages and find what you need.

I want to modify my Transalp, so can make it lightest and more enduro capabillities.
I want to change the front suspension and fork to one of KTMm with all that requaire. Wheel, brake system. Whitch KTM fork It's better?

I want to replace the exhaust with one very light. No more than 1 Kg. Whitch is better?

I want to change the rear suspension with a AT one. It's a good idea?

Please let me know or help to do this if you know.

Best for you

Hi,
today i changed my linkage to that from the RD04 and it fits fine, the tire have half a cm left free space when it stands on the main stand.

And when the AT fork gets ready i think it will fit also, good is that the front wheel and the brakes ( not the disks ) will fit from the 650.

Now im looking for new forksprings and disks for the AT fork.
When i need more travel lengh on the rear suspension i must buy a wilbers shock..... good is that the police cant see the diffrence between AT and TA linkage.

Want somebody change AT disks for a AT RD 04 swingarm ?

Damnit man.

I finally decided to long distance dirt adventures my plated XR600R and I find a cheaper TA near home....


Somebody talk me out of it!

Is it that bad as soon as I get off a dirt rd??
I don't mean motocross, but little whoops at the edge of a field, or the TAT, or jumping small logs?

The fork swap doesnt look too hard to do....

I hate this sounds like a noob post! I just don't personally know anybody who has one. My XR250/300 and XR600 are similar enough that if I know it's straight dirty ride, take the 250, but I want to be able to ride some power lines on the TA?!?!?

Aghhhhhhhh

It's only money I guess....

I know, random post. Sorry.


I've never owned a big dual sport and am wondering if it's just going to blow anytime I see a trail and the bike doesn't want to go.

Or am I e-over thinking the weight of the TA?


More ramblings..... damnit

Well, how good are you on a 24 year old, long wheel based, 400 + lb bike with very little ground clearance and not much suspension travel ?
