Eh? Xrv 400

OK... Some people might be thining what was I thinking, but I just bought a 88 XRV 650, that someone transplanted a 400cc TransAlp engine into. Reason for me buying it... 1. It was in my price range. 2. It's better than the 125cc Daelim I'm riding right now. 3. (Actually #1) it an Africa Twin.
Even with the 400 in it, it runs well enough for booting around Korea.
Besides, I get to tinker with it.
BTW...Does anyone know a site to download the workshop manual?
Cheers
Marc

I don´t know the horsepower of a 400cc Transalp but it can´t be a lot. How is the performance, AT is a heavy bike. Do you have a picture?

I'm from Singapore. The foam bathe was at the end of a leisure ride in our neighbouring Malaysia.

I guess the TA400 should have around 30+bhp. Still good enough for riding throughout the day...

XRV 400 - part 3

It's not too bad for cruising, even on the highway, it's WAY more than the 12hp that the Daelim put out. It's in the 30s... hot quite the 50s that I expected when I went to look at a bike that should have a 650. It's not too bad though. I haven't had a biggish bike in a long time, so I"m not too unhappy. For serious touring, it might need a bit of a boost. I wonder if I can buy a 650 (or 750 if it fits) give it a bit more bang... Here's a pic... sorry if it's a bit big. I'll get more a little later... this was on the shake down run from Seoul to Yeosu (Korea). Found some good bugs... anyone with a wiring diagram I could have a peak at???

Beannie in the picture...

On account of travelling, I chse to take the helmet I let Pillions use on my bike... Learned a 2 things...
1. I love my full-faced Helmet (HJC C-14)
2. Always try the helmet you give you passengers before you make them endure it. My friend liked the look, so I bought it for her to use... WOW... I darn near went deaf riding with that little pot on my head...

TA400s are great bikes... a buddy has one. The AT just came up and was in my budget. I ercently missed out on a TA and a KLE500.

Bikermice... that TA in Korea, or Japan... looks like a tea feild in the background.

Don't know where on the web you can find a shop manual but
you can find illustrated parts and numbers in the tech data column over at
xrv.org.uk... but you have to register first.

That is a Singapore reg. TA in one of the highland tea plantations in Malaysia.
Yup, TA400 are really tough. Rode with a leaking washer for all 500-600km ...

I'm looking for an AT rear wheel if any of you overseas guys know of any breakers that may have one for sale.
