I think my Transalp's poorly.

    Noticed a wee damp patch under the Transalp this morning. Having a look I noticed a rather conspicuous coolant coloured (bright pink) droplet on what I think is the outlet pipe of the water pump. Bikes not been used for a few weeks - shame on me - so she'll not be going anywhere until this is sorted. Ho hum.

    Had a chance to have a proper look at the Transalp and it appears the the water pump's on the way out. The leak is coming from the tell tale drilling in the water pump housing. That'll be about £300 quid after VAT and postage. Gulp!

    Oh well, it's not going to get any better....

    Edit: Well, there's a thing. Searching on the Honda part number (19200-MCB-750) brought up a web-site in Greece of all places - Makina Parts - where a genuine Honda water pump can be had for €187.74 including taxes and postage.

    We'll see how long it takes to turn up. Watch this space.

    Just delivered in the post -

    New water pump.jpg

    One shiny new water pump all the way from Thessaloniki in Greece. Only took 12 days - which ain't so bad seeing as I've managed to save around €150. Price from David Silver's including VAT and delivery to Ireland was of the order of €340. From Makina Parts in Greece, delivered was €188 - very nearly half price. That'll do me. :)

    The only annoying thing is that the pump has to be split to fit it to the bike as the lower frame rail gets in the way. Ho hum, there's always something.
