While the GXSR exhaust is noisier than stock (more of a growl), it is assuredly much less bothersome than the SuperTrapp.

The options that you have listed all seem very interesting and I will be interested to see what ends up working for you.

My GSXR bolt-on didn't even need any custom work for a link pipe.

[sorry don't have a better shot atm]

After fitting the new stainless steel header pipes the link pipe that came with the carbon fibre can slotted right in.

I'm using a Delkevic 14" oval.

I did make an extension link on the muffler mount bracket to get it to hang at the right height, but thats it.

laser is either street or race. The street is perfect imo, way quieter than supertrap. I had to bail on my supertrap when it became a rusted mess, best thing that ever happened to the bike

Here is a good german web site: www.transalp.de

and here is the part for mufflers:
http://www.transalp.de/technik/zubehoer/auspuffanlagen/

I have a LeoVince on my 650 and is a nice one, sound and weight is ok, ok it is much better after I changed the pipes to ones from ABP.

If somebody needs original ones i have a kompl. system from my 650.

ride on

exhaust

Hi ..the united kingdom [uk] "fuel exhaust" are very good quality and have sold well in the uk transalp owners..the "roadlegal" has a removable baffle and is quieter than the FULL rave exhaust..the oval silencer is a better it than the round..also they do different lenghts..

they are a good company to deal with and answer emails easily...

The pro duro are very rare in Europe and are louder than the Fuel ..


The arrow are excellent too..and all the silencers route differently due to pipe bends..

Dropping a cylinder...?

Tell me about the CDI issue that we have with Transalps… please.

This morning while heading for Reid State Park for some ocean time, the T/A had a cylinder drop out… At first it acted as if the main tank had gone dry and I needed to switch to reserve, that did not cure the problem.

Little run down… I had waited at the gate for just a few minutes while the rest of the beach goers paid their gate fee, a line of about ten cars, I shut the T/A down and rolled down the slight grade toward the gatehouse, entered and almost immediately the cylinder dropped out of play.
Now, it is fairly hot here right now, low 90’s and humid but the engine did not get hot, well, not too hot.

So, I had heard some chatter a bit back on the Transalp forum about the possible CDI units on the T/As acting up.

I cannot read every page of this thread and a search of "CDI" is too short for the search engine here but if someone could point me to what to check first and if there is a good cure for this situation that would be sweet. Aftermarket CDIs…?

After spending the afternoon at the beach I rode home nearly all the way with no indication of the possible problem, about five miles from home it happened again and stayed out but for a few times(maybe just a couple ) where the cylinder would come back into play.

That’s exciting, going from one 300cc single to the 600cc twin for just a second or two then back to dropping out.

Oh, the tach would go to zero when this happened also.

Thanks in advance for any assistance here.
Rob

we have probably discussed this a thousand times so let me just jump to what is important and leave out the details:

Replace the cdi on the left side, buy what ever brand you want to pay for, they all seem to work fine.

If you haven't mess with your wiring it's the left side CDI.

There's no real fix other than replacing it. I'd recommend replacing both since the right side one will not be far behind. Keep the good one for a spare and carry it in your tank bag or whatever you use. Best option would be to buy three since your "good" one is likely on it's way out also.

Yeah, it's a pain and not cheap for what you get but considering the over-all reliability of the bike, it's a small price to pay.

And DANGEROUS ! Try it on the freeway with an 18 wheeler on your back wheel.

There's been lots of talk on this topic here and on the AT forum. Go back a few pages/posts to find more info.

In the meantime, you'll find this failure really random. The bike may run fine for days and then you'll have the problem repeatedly in a 10 mile ride.

It's doesn't heal and actually gets worse with time.

Yeah, see.. I knew I would be that guy... . I will go back and read more in this thread, sorry.

Ok, this does sound like a cdi issue then...?

Thanks,

Understand, replace them... Are you telling me though that this is likely to reoccur...?

Are there no other components involved in this...? Coils are not suspect...? CDI only...?

All right, I go tear into it...

Thanks much,
Rob

Coils will be just fine.

CDI replacement only.

Not much to tear into. Take off the left and right side plastic under the seat, two 6mm bolts that hold the seat on. Remove the seat and you'll see the two CDI boxes under it.

Unplug bad one(s) - replace. Ride.

Because of the way they are designed, yes, it will happen again. 20 to 30 thousand miles seems to be about average life span - However - Murphy's Law applies.

So when you're on a long ride and it will take you 15 minutes to get all your gear off the bike, you're 100 miles away from anywhere with the sun going down and clouds rolling in......THAT is when it will happen again.

Wow, 30K would be awesome. This Transalp was purchased two years ago from the original owner with 3753 miles on it and just turned 10K on it.

I'll go get some CDI units...

Thanks,

I thought we set up a permanent sticky link to Eric's incredibly Transalp service document that he produced several months ago?

Somehow a link to that paper and especially to the section on CDI's would be a fast and streamlined way to provide info when we need it.

RD's right, searching for cdi info using "CDI" sure doesn't bring up anything but serching "running on one cylinder" does bring up this link which answers a lot of questions.

How can we save this link?: http://www.advrider.com/forums/searc...rchid=25795789

Hey mas,
Not to look the gift horse in the face but how do you know that it will be the left side...?

Thanks,

And got it, thanks again.

Goin' for a blast on the Hawk GT, I'll take care of the T/A later.

I know you mentioned buying whichever CDI fits the budget but is there any one better than the other...?

Thanks,
Rob

Only thing I can think of is ask a Moderator to put it at the top of front page of this thread. I doubt they will post a stand alone sticky for us Tranny nuts.


Or some of us like Mas335 and Ladder106 and Eric who post weekly should put it as a link in there signature as they post it will constantly be posted as a link. Now that assumes that noobs will actually read and notice it
