Thanks Jim. I did buy that packing from Honda. I thought the lack of a gasket was the whole reason why there was an exhaust leak, but when I pulled everything off I saw that some pipe was missing.
I'm going to weld on a little piece of exhaust pipe for the Supertrapp to slide on to. Then I'll paint the whole mess and it will be as good as new, or something.

Some bikes had a pin that looked like a very short nail that went through the holes from the outside and the muffler clamp held the pin in place to keep the pipes from separating.

hating my Alps stock front end thats all cracked n stuff. . I would be interested in a custom KTMAlp front piece if it was reasonably priced. as im not totally against that ugly Aussie-alp with the franken-ktm front end. Having recently said goodbye to my KLR for the purchase of an 1150GS, its time to make the alp more off road worthy. with this thread up to 1000 replies .. dang, .. does anyone have any idea what the best fork to put on the alp is ? Whats the best rear shock ? I looked on fleabay and $500+ ... for stuff that didnt seem epic isnt attractive.

another shock ?

O.k. I did the spacer mod to original shock to match xrl front end., But it just sucks on pot holes and such. Anyway, i can't afford the right upgrade, and seems xr250 shock has mixed reviews. Read somewhere xr600 or 650 might work but couldn't find anything....Suggestions/advice welcome.

Seems as though - because they are meant to fit a "price point" - most standard shocks are rubbish. Yes , you can get CR250. AT shocks, old KLR shocks etc. that fit but then you're changing springs and to think that the CR250 valving is correct for a long travel TA is like thinking you'll win the national lottery just by buying a ticket.

In the long run, you'll be money ahead by saving up for a quality piece.

Not trying to dampen your enthusiasm but you might like to review this link, there were quit a lot of changes from the 88 model vs 89 US model bikes, most are engine related. It may not be important but you should be aware of this for future reference.

I believe you will find that the 88 is closer to the 87 than to the 89 .... just different enough that you have to check and double check when ordering parts out of the US to ensure things will work.

could be 87 ???

thanks for all the help guys.

I'm not even sure what year it is. i bought it unseen . it looked like a good deal . I'll probably end up selling it or it will be used on gravel roads in order to save my AFRICA TWINS.
I'm not worried about engine parts it only has about 21,000klms.mostly i want to replace some ( or all plastics ) and for that i always go to German eBay.

thanks
