Mas335, I guess I was off a few splines. I was going off memory of what I saw earlier in the day. Mine has 6 splines. It is a first year Euro bike that ended up in the States.

Does anyone know of another 87 TA here in the US?

Check the JT sprocket page for XR600R. They are 6 spline and have the same OD as the TA output shaft. You'll have to do some careful measurements on your sprocket and shaft to find an exact fit but it does not appear impossible.

http://www.jtsprockets.com/52.0.html...el_uid=4374&p=

Also the NX650 has 6 splines. Dig around in that site.

I dropped a kind email to the JT guys praising them for including the engineering drawings. Maybe some of you guys could do the same. It sure makes searching for out of the ordinary things much, much easier.

Thanks to all who replied.

We're going to go through everything listed. I'll post back when we find something.

Thanks again.

Well I see what you are talking about, I have a 14T 6 spline countershaft sprocket that may have come off a NX650 or possibly a NX250? I hate it when I don't label stuff. Once again I have tried to post an image of this Countershaft sprocket and it says I have upload the maximum of one file? Anyone know what's going on with posting images?

I know of two Canadian pre 89 Transalps, does that qualify as euro T/A's? I think there are a few around so you are not alone.

countershaft sprocket

I just changed out my stock 15 tooth for a 16 tooth on my 1989 TA it had 13 splines. I was surprised how rusty the countershaft and sprocket were since the bike only has 8500 miles on it. I cleaned off as much rust from the shaft as I could with old tooth brush and greased both it and the new sprocket with thick synthetic grease as a protectant. I bought the Original Honda Part instead of the aftermarket the dealer wanted to sell (at half the price of the honda part, $54 vs $26) Because I wanted to be sure the hardness was right relative to the countershaft, and I wanted the rubber cushion surround on the shaft, as shown in picture of post 5202. The chain was pretty new so I did not think it was a problem not changing out all sprockets and chain at same time.

Remember, when you install bigger countershaft sprocket and move forward the rear wheel, you have to adjust the linkage of the rear brake!

I have a NX250 sitting in the garage next to the TA. I will take a peak and see if it looks the same.
I have a riding buddy with a first year XR600 and will have him bring a sprocket over to check it out.
Thanks guys!

Can anyone ID this plate?

Green wire of Mystery

Bryan,

I'll try to include a scan of the TA electrical diagram. I highlighted the green wire in.....wait for it......GREEN (creative, huh?)

It sorta shows this wire in what looks like a round flat connector with a hole in it so it must screw onto something.

I spent the day riding and didn't take off the side panel to have a look in the real world.

If this doesn't help, I'll yank the side panel tomorrow and try to have a real photo for you. Lemme know.



I tried for hi-res so you may be able to download the image and enlarge it.

The "box" it goes to is labeled "Thermo-switch" it had a blak/blue wire that leads to the fan motor. Following this wire from the fan motor should lead you to the Thermo-switch" and hopefully you'll find one empty connection there.

Loose wire

IN addition to what Ray said: according to the Haynes, it's probabily the ground wire. They're green. Here's the color version.

loose wire

thanks you guys.....its definatly a ground. I ran my test light from battery positive to it and it lites up .... when someone has the oppertunity to take a look where I should reconnect this that would be great...its not very long coming out of the harness end so its probably the fan housing (guessing)

much appreciated

Bryan

ya know I only rode this bike for a week before I tore it apart but never heard the fan come on ..... do they run very often?

Does anyone know if the dual headlight cowling from an Africa Twin can be placed on a TA using the TA stock side cowlings? I do not own a TA yet but I am working on it. I have an NX 250 and want to stay in the family for a larger touring dual sport bike.

Bryan,
Yes, the fan does come on. When it does it feels like it should have come on a lot earlier. It will do its job when needed - make sure it works.

It's 26 degrees and snowing sideways right now or I'd try to get a picture. I'm sure one of the guys from the warmer & nicer parts of the world can post a picture. Too cold to ride and not yet enough snow for good skiing......nothing to do!
