I've owned my Transalp for a little more than a year. When I got it, I rode it twice, ~ 75 miles. Then put it in the garage and started taking it apart for maintance and mods. So today was the first day it's back together enough to roll out, gas up, and hit the start button. Turned over maybe two times and fired right up and purrrrred like a kitten after more than a year of sitting. Gotta love the TA.
All of the new stuff and mods work good. Still have a few more things to do, but I'm getting there. More later. Really looking forward to doing some rides soon.

Just picked up a wrecked 1990 Transalp.. will be looking for parts... unless they are unable to find, then I might consider parting it out... I just want a dualsport bike again since I bought a Honda ST..

CS Sprockets (again!)

Hi to all.Been reading about putting the 16T CS sprocket from the NT?NV? 650.By the looks of it this will not fit my '87 Canadian 600.My output shaft only has about 6 hefty splines as opposed to the '89 which looks like it has 15 or more.Is there a genuine 16T available for the '87,or do I go after-market?

Charlie

NV600 and VT600 models have 16T and 6 splines. They will fit. And there is no genuine 16T sprocket available for the Transalp. :)

Thanks, but I can't take credit for the AT stuff and the decal/paint package, that was lear60man's work. But it is amazing how many small seemingly insignificant little things that needed "finishing up", and how much time and work it took to sort it all out. I never even notice the shield. I'm 6 ft tall and it fits me just right. Just noticed today that the amber low fuel light even works. I'll probably never get to test the red one with that 6+ gal tank. Now to get out and ride.

Finally got my photos developed from a spring break ride to Walla Walla in SE Washington.


























And a couple from a more recent ride around Corvallis:

Do any of you California guys need this smog stuff. I hate to throw it in the trash if anyone needs it.

Jordan,

The TA looks much straighter than it did 2 years ago.

Nice photos

TransHawk

The TransHawk has been in storage and I'm just getting around to putting her back on the trail.

As I was stopped waiting for the left turn light about to hit the freeway ramp I Iet out on the clutch and heard sort of a clunk
and noticed the oil presure light was on. I aborted the freeway ramp and drove it gently back home about 5 blocks away.






Back in the garage I put here on the lift for a visual inspection.

Plenty of oil on the dipstick

No metal in the oil

I pulled the sending unit and hooked up a cheap mechanical oil guage.

After considerable cranking of the starter I never saw the oil guage move off of ZERO.












So I'm going to roll her to the side and contemplate the problem for awhile.

The only oil pump failure I've seen was caused by a little piece of debris that got sucked up in the pump gears and locked it up solid. Someone had screwed up the little filter screen on the pump pick up tube so it was just a matter of time. Does the Hawk motor have a oil pump drive chain behind the clutch like the TA ?

Dave, I cannot offer advice on the oil pump, but looking at your garage, I think you should consider posting on the 'Man Cave" thread here:
