What??

Cory,

Tell me you actually posted a photo of a brake adapter for NX650 forks.

Am I delusional ?? (well, in general, yes.....but I'm referring to this specific case).



Rob.

Sorry to hear about the sudden off-road bit. Good job you didn't smack one of those trees to hard. Glad the bike held up. Hope rehab on the arm goes well.

This is the current state of my 650 (click to zoom)



tired of the poor performance of the rd04 forks I had installed, I my hands on a pair of 48mm WP forks taken from a 2007 KTM SXF, changed springs for stiffer ones (same rate as the one used on 990), got a new front wheel and switched from a dual disc to a single 320mm disc setup
I gotta say front end is now amazing, still legs are too long and the bike is a little off balance being too light on the front to be safely driven at high speeds offroad

Next, and hopefully last step, is getting a new longer (3/4cm) rear shock in order to regain bike's balance

G'day Matt,

Umm, the original TransAlp in Australia was plated '87 - '88. Have you got one with an Australian Compliance Plate with x/89 stamped? Don't mean to sound sceptical, but would like to see a photo of that. It isn't an imported one?

As far as seats go, I have had mine modified by John Moorhouse Ergo Seats. They're in Queensland. Just type him into google for details. Having said that, I don't mind the look of the seat Cruz had done up.

So my option appear to be Seat Concepts, Corbin, or having a custom seat made... Any input?

Cheers!

Matt

They are easy to shorten, I have some spacers here from a set of WP's that were on my 640 to lower them 2"

Keeps talking about some thing called a "cruiser". Says Transalp at the bottom, but I just want to make sure I'm getting the right boingers for my 89. Got the link from one of Ray's posts originally, but it was from a long time ago... Nothing changed with this thing right Ray?

I don't have an 89 Alp... I have an inability to type, it's an 88!

I have listed a less than perfect Transalp -Sargent LOW Profile seat in the flea market.

Santa, have a look in post #10487 on page 700 in this thread.
I'm almost sure that hobes bike has got CR shrouds mounted.

Best regards,
