I prefer heated gloves. I have had both for years and IMHO the heated gloves do a much better job than grips.

I use heat shrink that has epoxy built into it. It's thicker than standard heat shrink and glues itself to the bars. I use 3M Weatherstrip Adhesive to glue the grips on. I like Spider grips and Pro Taper pillow grips.

Is anyone else having trouble logging on to Transalp.org? I put my user name and password in and it doesn't work. It doesn't say "incorrect user name or password" it just doesn't log me in.

Can someone send a PM to Russ for me to see if he can check the problem. My screen name over there is Jeff@TireBalls

thanks!

Nice warm day today , so i used the opportunity to work in my unheated garage. I got the time to install my wingrack. My arrow pipe was a little bit wide and the support bar makes contact with it.

From ta


anybody think this will be a problem , I really dont think it will be too hot.

I also fixed the faring vibration caused by the crashbars , just snipped the corner off where the faring makes contact with the bars.

From ta



And in case anybody wants to do a fork swap with the XR250 forks , the XR600 Fork brace from RSW racing fits like a glove

From ta

I'd add a couple of washers and space the rack out a couple of mm's
The contact will likely wear a hole in the muffler eventually if you take no action.

Thanks,

That is a very valuable bit of information and...unless I'm mistaken....was an "unknown" until now.

Great Work

If any of you other TA nutz are interested, I'm just finishing up my ride report from my 4100 mile, multi-state ride from last summer. I took a little over 300 pics and even though I'm just a point n shoot kinda photog, had many that came out real nice. Will be finishing with a rundown on how the TA did and other gear I used on the trip but as TA owners, you all pretty much know the answer to the 1st part.

You bet we're interested. I was about to go off to bed but checked in to see if anybody had posted anything, now I'm going to be up till dawn thinking about my next trip! Good luck on the job hunt. PM me if you're ever in the Lancaster, CA area.

For me it's Alaska June 12 - July 6th, via Nevada, Wyoming, Montana into Canada and return through Washington, Oregon and California PCH and 101

Thanks Dave

Steve

good to know , the only concern I had was that maybe the support would get hot , and possibly melt the rack.
