Transalp 700 project bike
I bought my TA 12 months ago and thought I'd list what I've done to it and whether I'd do it again:
All work was done by ROAM.
Uprated horns - PIAA twin 400/500 hz would do again yes, great for dopey Sunday drivers and required in Italy
12v Socket - for powering things - would do again, yes maybe with a different manufacturer who makes a nice bracket
Higher screen - better stone/bug protection -would do again, yes though can make the frontÂ light in high winds
Canvas front panniers - great do the job, just don't put anything in there you need dry unless you drybag it first.
Heated grips - nuff said, great for drying out gloves.
30mm bar riser - good but would go for 25mm for more stability
Air hawk - great for backs, did mine in Feb in a car crash. Not cheap but good once you have the pressure right.
Trax panniers - well worth it though watertightness leaves something to be desired. The Evo easy rack removal is great.
Optimate HOME ONLY NOT TRAVELLING - good for when you're at home, adds little weight then
Givi topbox - bolted to the bike so it can't be kicked off easily.
Bash plate and bars - make the bike look like it means business though the plastic factory one is pretty good for moderate impacts.
I'll keep this updated as things progress.
Let me know your modifications.
Leo Vince exhaust and link pipe, no more cat converter.
Hepco and Becker top box and paniers
SW Motech Bash plate, Centre stand and Crash bars.
Touratech Handle bar cross bar and Garmin lockable GPS cradle.
Garmin Zumo 550 GPS.
I think that's all at the moment.
Leo Vince Exhaust - no cat
Up Big Red on the Edge of the Simpson Desert
leo Vince link pipe
has anyone had any adverse effects from the leovinci link pipe on a transalp 700.
I would expect it to run lean but the their set up so rich it may not matter...
There is a resistor you can buy that supposed to help, does anyone know about this?
I want to get one but dont want to buy a power comander
I have the Leo Vince link pipe on my bike with just standard exhaust. It has presented no problems after 50,000 kilometres and going through the Pamirs last year, so I would just fit the pipe and not worry about anything fancy
