love that bike !
my good friend from Hannover,
hope we meet this year ...
I had a different version of SM..........or just an old fat guys sportbike....
CBR forks, wheels and brakes.........
Do you have more details of this swap? I'm liking this look.
Cant give away all my secret stuff.....................PM ed ya.
Give em up Clock , Give em up ,
If Trex300 wants to share...........
I'm good at sharing ... ...................Thanks Russ I'm assuming a CBR600 donor?
"Hey Trex, I did a little research and found that the early 90's CBR had the same fork diameter as the TA ( 41mm ) so the front end is a straight swap. Forks wheels brakes speedo drive, everything including the front fender is the same paint code as the 90 TA. They just slip right in, then plumb in the brakes, even uses the TA master cyl. , then use a speedo cable from a 91 st1100 and the speedo is correct.
On the rear I had to bore the chain adjusters on the TA swingarm for the CBR axle, fab a axle spacer and a guide block for the disc carrier, for the rear master cyl. I fabbed a bracket that fit under the pass peg mount used the CBR rear master cyl had to offset the master cyl brake and pedal connection to use the TA brake pedal.
If you attempt this conversion let me know and I will shoot you some closeup pics.....
It really handles good, feels a little twitchy in the bars because of the wide handlebars, but it is a really fun ride.

Here we have an older project. (circa 1996)
With the 700cc NT Hawk engine it ran well.
17" VFR Wheels and Sport Rubber
Built before the SV 650 and VTR
I finally managed to fit a trail-tech vapor computer to my 650 transalp, what a pain in the **** of a job that was.
Fortunately I have retained the stock instruments so I can compare old with new, so I have been able to fix the various errors.
I have it all working OK except for the tacho function: If it's correct at low revs it's out at high revs, and vice versa. No amount of messing with different programmes has fixed it. If anybody has nailed this on a 650 transalp, can they please get in touch
I had it on my '91 Transalp, kind of cool but I had to just remember to turn the headlight switch on sometimes ( N.C. state law).
It also had a 'parking" light switch feature which was inside the headlamp.
Im currently in South America and my mate bought my 05 transalp off me.
While we where cleaning the carbs before I left he broke the TPS .... we tried to glue it back together but got the spot wrong and it was idling way to hi so we gave up on that idea.
When I unplugged it seemed to run fine but did not have enough time to test properly.
This part is impossible to get in Argentina
So I have a question and a request : dose any one know what will happen if he runs it with the TPS unplugged ??
And would anyone have one lying around form a mod or know a wreaking yard where i could get one form??
Thanks guys Maciek
BTW Happy New Year
Note: Full time headlight on is a Federal regulation plus some states do an add on law.
I have been a DualdogDave fan for years............
Well I guess that settles the headlight issue.
When ever I pass thru South Carolina and see bikers on the highway with no helmet I am reminded they don't have to wear one unless they are under 21, still looks strange though.
