    Hello all, I think I need a new battery as mine gets discharged sometimes like this morning I couldn't start the bike. Any recommendations? I don't want to get a lithium one if I don't have to as they are over 100 quid but I will get one if it's worth it I use the bike every day rain or shine...
  2. Dominator / FMX
    Im just about to start wiring my dommie project. I have created a wiring diagram, and was hoping someone could give it a quick look over and give me feedback on any mistakes. Also thought it may be handy for other people to use, (if its correct)

    OK so I'm on a roll now asking questions! Bike warms up lovely when stationary, temperature gauge showing where it should be however, as soon as I start riding gauge drops to zero. I'm guessing that either a/ Thermostat knackered b/ Thermostat doesn't exist. If either a or b I need to replace...

    Mines gone all crackeled. Seems like many have done the same. Hoping someone has some advice before I start cutting it up!!
  6. Dominator / FMX
    Greetings fellow dommie enthusiasts. I'd be grateful for some expert input on this question. My '99 dommie has not been started for several months. There is ample oil in the engine, but the top oil tank is bone dry. (Oil check valve isn't working as it should?) Is it okay to start the bike...
  7. Dominator / FMX
    Hi, My Dominator doesn't start when its oil temperature is between 60-80 C. I did the valve clearance but the problem didn't disappear. What could be the problem? Thanks

    On longer rides, especially when loaded up, I find that my arms sometimes start acheing. I'm thinking of trying some higher bars. Any recommendations and do they affect the handling etc of the bike? Also what if any modifications will be needed to the controls etc? Thanks for any answers. Nick...

    Hi, as anyone else had problems with the TA700 crankshaft position censor (CKP CENSOR) where the bike does not start, the FI light gives the 1 long & 9 short flashes (ckp censor fault) but after 3 or 4 attempts the bike will start !!! great bike but all these tempremental censors let it down...

    I have no idea if this has been posted before, but, imho, its impressive for a Dominator and in same bike colours as mine too :) Website below Honda Dominator
  13. For Sale / Wanted
    I want an electric start engine to replace my XL600R motor. Anything considered, but a complete engine would be preferred. Failing that, has anyone got a good 600R cylinder head for sale?
  14. Africa Twin
    Hi, mt AT (Catweasel's) has barkbusters and they limit the steering. They hit the fairing before end of the normal range of movement and I think they are why my steering lock won't engage. Any tips before I start grinding bits away? Cheers, Stewart.
  15. Dominator / FMX
    Anyone got some tips etc on best way to replace the Pulse Sender please ? Mines playing up more often now, wouldn't start after filling her up for ten minutes today, which its never done before :rolleyes: I already have one, had a feeling it would need it sooner or later after reading...

  17. Africa Twin
    Do they fit over the existing plastic protection for radiator or do I remove them? Just curious before I start putting them on tomorrow. I have a set of aluminum guards handy but I was going to ship them to the states for my RD03. I'll keep them here if they are needed. Thanks
  18. What's it worth?
    Hi All I have a 1986 XR600 in generally good over-all condition, don't think it would need much if indeed anything for M.O.T, runs away fine a bit of smoke on start-up but probably partially down to lack of use, would appreciate if someone could give a rough indication to value as have owned...
  19. XR
    Hi Has anyone done the 440cc conversion? If so what are the benefits and drawbacks? I am about to start an engine rebuild and wondered if it's worth doing. Thanks. Ben Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk

    Oh yes. Deano's new shiney Africa Twin DCT would not start with a flat battery and you cant bump them (I think??) so the jump leads out and my old AT saved the day! :thumb:
