  1. Slr debaffle

    Dominator / FMX
    Set to with the debaffle today. Cut the end off the two baffles so I could get 38mm hole saw in. Cut the baffle out and then welded a 42mm piece of pipe onto the hole so it looks a bit tidier. Gave it all a blast with some black vht paint and she sounds like a good un. Just got to swap the main...
  2. No high revs, help needed.

    Dominator / FMX
    My RD02 dommie refuses to rev high and in top gear won't pull past 65 mph and seems to be too lean and splutter when you open the throttle fully. I'm not sure of what revs this is as I don't have a rev counter fitted, but you can get to 3/4 throttle no worries then it all goes wrong. I'm...

  5. New Scorpion Pipes

    I've just had my first ride with my new Scorpion pipes fitted. It was only a local tootle about with a few short dual carriageways. I loved the sound of them in my garage with the baffles in so I thought for my first ride i'd take them out. “Ay caramba!” that is one hell of a growl. I don't...

    Dominator / FMX
    On the bike with the snorkel out, 15t front sprocket, baffles removed and 175 main jet I saw 103MPH on the speedo yesterday. Yes I know that indicated doesn't mean actual but it'll do for me. The engine was turning just over 6000RPM, it wouldn't rev out in 5th. I was tucked in as tight as...

  8. Get your Snorkel Out!

    Dominator / FMX
    I've posted on here many times about the transformation that can be wrought on an FX650 by removing the baffle tubes from the standard silencers and going up to a 15t front sprocket and 175 main jet. I've always eschewed intake modifications because of a long and painful history of Honda bikes...

  16. New Toy

    Couple of pictures of my latest toy Having already owned a 660 Tenere, IMHO the “R” version of the 660 kicks ass. Lighter (easier to pick up without popping a vertebra when you drop it :rolleyes: :D), more flickable and you get than “wind in yer face” effect with it not having a fairing...
  17. Vortip Baffle

    Does anyone have any experience of Vortip baffles in an XR 250. I am told rejetting is not required but the bike does pop and crackle a bit on over run with it in. Does that mean it is too lean or is this normal for Vortips? Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

    Excuse my ignorance, is it possible / easy to remove the baffles on the standard exhaust ? If so how? Alternatively, which is the loudest aftermarket exhaust that will fit this bike, to let other road users know that you do actually exist and you are approaching !!!!
