Transalp XL700V Headshake (shimmy)

I have a 2008 Transalp and the other day I happened to let go the handlebars at about 40-50 km/h. I got a headshake and a near "tankslapper" of note. Apparently this is common?? This is really unsafe, what will the front wheel be doing on a dirtroad!

There is not as much rake and trail on a dual sport as say a cruiser type making the straight line steering less stable at higher speeds than a bike w/ more rake and trail.,but on the other hand , much less steering effort and slow speed manueverability at lower speeds on the dual sport. raise front wheel up off ground and secure bike. come around to front of bike, kneel down and grab bottom of forks and pull & push front to back looking for steering stem bearing play if any tighten steering stem & recheck not too tight -steering should flop over when just off center ,if not -too tight loosen just enough.if still play after tightening, check bearing condition. also check front wheel bearing for play, and look for leaking fork seal,finally look for uneven tread wear caused by these conditions.make sure tire is properly inflated.

Honda transalp 700 manual


Hi, Anonymous the vast majority of service, parts fiche, and owners manuals on the internet are "FREE" to download and all service manuals contain wiring diagrams in the back pages. The rest usually charge a modest fee around $10 and there is a handful of obscure, rare, obsolete, and very old models that are no longer or never were available, for these rare occasions I shall look on eBay and find the cheapest one available. Most of the manuals will cover your exact make, model, and year otherwise one will be provided that comes as close as possible to your bike and will have most of the same info that an exact manual would have. If there is no $ sign after the manual link it is free to download for viewing or printing. To download your manual please click on the blue links below. Good luck and have a wonderful day

2010 Honda XL700V Transalp ABS fuel pump not working


Hi, Anonymous the following is a systematic procedure for diagnosing fuel pump issues designed to keep "DRACHMA" to a minimum. If you need parts check with Amazon and eBay first to keep costs down.
1. If your pump does not turn on check the pump fuse and relay and all wiring including connectors for corroded, broken, or loose pins/sockets.
1. Normal fuel pump pressure is 3-5 PSI.
2. Check any rubber or plastic tubing for age-related pinholes by removing and plugging the ends that connect to the fuel valve and then turn on the ignition switch and watch for fuel streams exiting the pinholes, if any exist, replace tubing as necessary.
3. Check for a clogged a primary fuel filter that comes off the bottom of the pump to screen out big rocks and clean as necessary.
4. Check for a clogged secondary fuel filter that's outside if applicable by removing it from the system and replace it with a short splicing tube turn on the ignition switch and recheck fuel pressure if pressure increases to normal pressure you need a new secondary filter.
5. If all the above check out OK and the pump is not functioning properly then you need a new fuel pump.

'09 KTM 530 EXC-R HEADSHAKE


I would recommend getting the front tire balanced. Get the front wheel off of the ground and spin it to see how "out of round" it is.I know the tires on these are DOT approved, but they are not a comfortable ride at highway speeds. Head shake is usually caused when the front end gets light. (My Husaberg does it bad at 90mph) You can play a little with the suspension, or even move the forks up a little in the triple clamps, or the enevitable, get a stabilizer.
