Hey Mark

Yeah, I noticed they did away with the microfiche diagrams and parts listings. I just got the parts #'s for my 90 off another site and punched them in on CCP and like I said, they were about $20 cheaper, at least for the $150 worth of parts I was shopping. YMMV

Dave,
I spent about $3000.00 last year on Transalp OEM parts so saving money is a big deal to me. I used to get free shipping, I guess I can kiss that goodby.

Great shot of your bike infront of the falls, what running lights are those mounted on your bike?

Mark

Those are Hella FF50 Driving Lights - here's some info on my install and pics

The falls pic is from my summer ride and was taken in North Cascades NP in Washington State.
I'm going to start my ride report soon, I promise

I scrubbed off the red NM dirt that was on there. Glad to help out.

We broke our old record of 28 degrees this morning - bottomed out at a balmy 24F. Supposed to be around 28 tomorrow am then moderating a little bit.

Quitcher Bitchin Cohiba,

We've gone completely out of our way to make the new DN-01 legal in your silly country and also legal in all 50 of your states (each with different requirements). You guys can ride this with absolutely no knowledge of engines, gears or physics. It will be fun and you WILL buy it.

We've also given you a 250cc Supermoto bike (well, OK a 230cc SM bike) that you can use in your clogged up eastern inner cities.

What more do you Americanos want?

Love,
Soichiro

Still Looking for TA Parts

Hey guys... I just realized the lower fork leg on left side (brake side) of my project TA has a bad spot in it that is binding the fork slider from going up and down smoothly. It is non repairable. And as luck would have it, I have a set of spare bent forks I acquired in a parts lot purchase Yay! Buuttttt... the side I need has rash on the lower leg as well as a broken off fender mounting bolt stuck in it. I could eazy out the bolt and kind of smooth over the rash but figured it may just be better at this point to find a replacement. So I was wondering if anybody has a left fork lower they would be willing to part with. I could also use the copper looking bushing/slider that goes on the lower end of the fork tube / slider.

AFWIW I am still on the hunt for the gray filler panel on left side next to gauges and a complete left front turn signal assy. with socket/plug.

And lastly... has anyone ever used the Sargent sport skinz?

http://www.sargentcycle.com/honss.htm

It seems not bad for $69.99. A replacement seat cover in any color. And they actually sew panels together with piping to match factory style and shape off of patterns they have onsite. I was going to stretch my own but figure by the time I spent $25 on a piece of material and not have any piping or proper stitched seems on it, this may be the way to go if I didnt want it to look like ass.

Sargent seat skinz

Soupknotzie,

I just installed one on my stock seat...it fits well and is available in a multitude of colors and styles to fit....if you don't mind the stock seat foam this in my opinion is a very good way to go....mine was less than $100 delivered and I installed it in my garage. Keep in mind tho that youll need a powered staple gun to do it...a regular hand staple gun does not penetrate the bottom seat pan very well.

Bryan,

Thanks for the reply. Did you get a solid color? I called Sargent and I think he said that only solids were available to the TA's.

Do you have some pics of the refinished seat by any chance?

I have an air stapler that runs off my small compressor. I just used it last month to replace the EE seat cover on my 05 KTM 300EXC

Sargent seat cover

Mine is two different colors with a silver piping....but my bike has been repainted a non traditional two tone silver. They had no problem coming up with different combinations when I called and this was only this past November...I pm'd ya if you want a couple pics...I don't have a smug mug acct to post.

Per Bryan's request I am posting a few of the pics he sent me via email of his installed Sargent Sport Skinz seat cover on his stock seat pan and foam. His TA project looks great!
