Hi there.

I have a 1996 Transalp 600 and am in the process of buying the bits ready for a big overhaul. I do a lot of off roading on my bike and the clearance on the ground is sometimes a little bit too low. I live in a place where there are many large rocks that get caught on the bottom of the bike. I have seen various modifications with xr forks and even wp forks, but you don't often see many with CRF forks, though they do lurk in the dark depths, mostly with little to no information of the setup.

My question is ladies and gents. What setup would cater for the weight of the transalp? CRF 250 or 450 fork springs will surely be still to weak for the Trannies heavier set. I'm guessing its a mix between fork oil and spring, but im not mechanic and am really short of ideas on what other options are available.

Take a look at this video of a 650 rider who used this setup (CRF250 forks) http://youtu.be/9zE58ck9Bbo

Take a look at Emig Racing. (http://www.emigracing.com/) They have a replacement stem for the XR650L that works on the Transalp.
