Another phone call by Wilbers...

...telling me that my rear shock is on it's way back home. Costs are 150€ for service, repairing the height adjustment, shorting the tube for the hydraulic spring adjuster and lengthening the complete shock by 5mm, including shipping.
The bad news is that they say they cannot fabricate springs to my needs without the fork being there . This means letting them do the fork mod which is another 260€ + shipping . OK, maybe next year. Or I sell the RD04 plastics again... let's see what to do...

Bye, Andy

not sure if this has been mentioned on here before , but i was flipping through the channels , and the movie Hot Shots was on, and Charlie Sheens character rides a transalp in the movie. It was custom painted , but no doubt it was a TA. pretty cool.

Yea. I installed the bearings today. Tomorrow I'll be taking the lower part of the brake hose to lenghten it by 6" (I think that's enough), and take the speedo assy to the shop to see if they can bore it...if not, one is on the way anyway. I'm desperate...I'll look for a disk side seal for the bigger bushing.

Well...damn...i'll be...there is actually a Honda part for that....thanks again Ray ! The bike has been painted a non traditional two tone silver /grey so i'm going with the silver high heat ceramic coating for the pipes / exhaust. This bike is going to be my grocery getter around town bike...i'm weary of dumping it and smashing the body work up thats getting ever harder to come by. ... getting a dedicated enduro for the off road stuff ...going to try out a GasGas 300 tomarrow .
Kinda changed up here recently and decided I needed two bikes....as good a bike as my 640 Adventure was it was getting heavy for those single tracks and woods riding.
Was always interested in the Transalp so picked one up and am going thru it ..... terrific bike ... can't belive there is not enough interest in the USA for them to import these.

tks again....Bryan

Get a set of crashbars from Twisted throttle and you won't have to worry too much about the body work.....unless you really "bin it" at fairly high speed.

Most mounts for rear panniers also seem to do an admirable job as crashbars.

The TA is no 2 stroke woods bike but you'll surprised at the places it will take you.

Now, you owe us photos....particularly when the exhaust comes back from the potters....er....platers. That ceramic thing still has me confused

Overhaul

Has anyone done a complete overhaul to their engines? with Mods? I am about to roll 40K and have a slight top end oil leak and antifreeze leak.

Any hot cams out there....never done one before...not even sure what it does for ya!

Any thoughts on the topic would be great.

Do you know where your leaks original from ?

Mines still running really well with that mileage. Most top end oil leaks come from the valve cover gasket on the rear cylinder. The area just above the exhause pipe gets the gasket hot...it cracks...and leaks from that point.

A coolant leak from up top is probably coming from a small "O" ring type seal where the hard coolant pipe enters the head. It's cheap and easy to replace. Again, the rear cylinder is the usual area.
