Edit: Ooops, noticed that you are in Oz, in that case drill and tap a 6MM...

Just read this posted by Baldy,


The mods are gonna announce that we're going to turn off image uploads to our server. You'll have to host your images somewhere to post. Reason being reading/writing the images just uses more disk I/O, slowing down database access to the disks. Also, going to more expensive solid-state disks means I don't want to fill them up with images.

I turned off image uploads in the past once, but since I own a photo sharing site I was accused of doing it because I'm a capitalist pig out to line my pockets at the expense of the little people.

Oh well, better to be an evil man who can keep his free forum up.

Thanks Showkey,

I've dugged further through the grip rubber to expose the handle bar end. Indeed, there are clips and some glued smeared all over.

[photo deleted]

The photo shows there is not threat in there, just a perfect metal cylinder. So I'll try to pull them out tonight, but might have to borrow a drill for this job.

Thomas

PS: yes, I do not owned a drill, I am an appartment dweller (and tenant to make matters worst). So apart from chopping wood and building guitar amps cabinets, I haven't had much DYI experience so far. Learning learning every day.

Under Fluff, Ask Baldy, Baldy turns off a couple of features, post #24

It appears a hosting site will be required, I like the way I have been posting images but I guess that will end.

SUCCESS!

Well almost, I have fitted the Ego Barkbusters on the Transalp (XL650V).

The only mod required to get them to fit perfectly, is to slightly shorten the brake and clush levers (by about 5mm).

I haven't done that yet, so the lever is not aligned with the aluminium bar, but it will before the week end.







Thank you people for your assistance. I'm really happy about this (as silly as it might seem).

Next is crashbars and when I have money, bashplate.

Thomas

Going for the Hawk (NT650) engine transplant

Hi Inmates: I'm posting this because I hope others with this experience will chime in with any links to descriptions I may find useful. Just for background, last winter I purchased Jeff@TireBalls project "RallyAlp" from its next owner who only got to enjoy it for 300 miles before the rear piston mysteriously stopped doing its up and down thing. I'm finally just about ready to lift the engine out and take apart the rear cylinder assy to see how bad it is, but I don't expect I'll find very much left that's pretty. Since I suspicion that a proper fix would entail a full disassembly of the engine unit, and sourcing some rather expensive parts, and since I have a complete HawkGT to steal anything from it I need, my present plans are to use the Hawk engine, an RD03 exhaust header, and an assortment of RD03 cooling hoses/thermostat with TA radiators.
Inmate Luke has been kind enough to describe the pulser-related changes I'll need to make to use the TA CDI's and coils. Those changes alone seem like a bit of rigging to work through, but I'm sure that's not all I'll find as I get into the job.
Please feel free to PM me with any helpful advice. I am aware I'm not going to experience tons more power or any magic like that. I'm only using a Hawk engine because the one available to me is free and known to be good.

Thanks in advance

Pete

Go See Santa

See if you can get Santa to assist with this. He completed a successful Hawk transplant a while back. Search this thread for particulars.

Also please document you work with photos. The Hawk conversion is something quite a few long-term TA owners may be looking at for riding into the next 10 years (As long as there's no logical replacement forthcoming)

continuing my side panels

I have been out of town for a week but here's where I got before I had to take a break:

\



I was trying to get a view of how close it is to the radiator, i.e. close!








I am showing how the fit isn't anywhere near perfect. But I never claimed to know what I was doing or that I have the experience to do it right the first time. I am learning as I go and will eventually change a few things in the near future but I like where this experiment is going!

I still need to make vents too and paint as well. I'm still in the forming phase!

Kyjenkin, I used 3mm thick Kydex for my panels. maybe easier to work with than 2 layers. Keep going, you can get them to fit perfectly.

Those panels look like they have potential keep up the good work

Delkevic Exhaust

So I am working on putting the Delkevic 14" oval exhaust on my 89 TA, the exhaust is nicely made, and for $110 shipped its hard to beat price wise. The can is 5 inches high and 4 inches wide. I had a mid pipe made at a local exhaust shop, in the end it cost about the same at using the gsxr kit, but I wanted the can to be in line with the seat with the tip pointed down some what to help with the noise, which is why I didn't use the kit. I haven't finished the install yet so I don't know how it sounds but here is how it will look.
