Hawk Engine into 87 Tranalp Results

Happy to announce that the combination of the 600 motor's pulse sensor magnets and the single arm rotor, ensuring that no stray air gets past the manifold rubbers and the help of a mechanic mate who adjusted the richness screws on both carbs by ear, and we now have a running bike that has moved on from it's popping and backfiring issues. A new chain and sprocket set comes next week and I will register it, and provide feedback after a longer run.
Whoopee!!!

XR600 front end conversion question?

Just sourced a complete '95 XR600 front end including rim and brake caliper for my '87 Transalp.

I can't help but notice the brake rotor on the XR front end is considerably smaller, should I be concerned about using this on the street?

Ardcases are very nice indeed, very happy with the build and quality

Below is the link to the project, if I can link to that site from here?? Currently putting a KTM450 EXC front end on and being stripped / resprayed ready for a boano rally fairing.

Project here

Which jetting are you currently running on the TA carb? I'm currently running 136 and 138 with 40 pilots with the mixture screw at 2 1/2 turns out. What's your elevation? Did you use the gear behind the pulse trigger arm as well? My mechanic overseas is still sorting out a few kinks in the wiring harness, but otherwise it's currently running fine with all TA electrical stuff and the TA single arm pulse trigger rotor thingy.... Thanks for your post Tim! You solved my backfiring issue!

Still running stock 600 carbys and (presumably) the original jetting. I plan to get it dynoed and have them look at the jetting, and if they change it, I will get them to record what they do and pass it on. I didn't change the gear behind the rotor; I took it that they were interchangable (identical).
Eletrickery is a funny business; the pulse generators look identical between the 600 and the 650, but the 600 ones require the single arm rotor to fire the engine, and the 650 ones require the porcupine.
Got me stuffed!

Try it but you may find the braking considerable less than you'd like.

If you ride with a passenger or a touring load you will certainly find it less than you'd like

With both a load AND a passenger I would say you'd get into the "almost dangerous" catagory

Why not just get a 270mm or a 320mm brake rotor for the xr hub , thats bound to give a better bite .

So I got my new chain and sprockets, but I got one of these master links:



How do you rivet those? Hitting it with a hammer doesn't even scratch the end! I tried center punches, chisels etc, nothing seems to work!

Any suggestions?

That master link requires a special tool with anther special tool that doesn't come with the first special tool.

Motion Pro heavy duty chain riveter with a quad stake anvil.



Get a hollow rivet master link instead.

Or go with a clip type master link. I wouldn't mess with that bugger unless you want to buy some tools.
