    Morning All, Has anyone had a go at fitting just a top yoke from any of the Honda family? I'm wondering if an XR600 or an XR650L may fit the dommi? I know the ignition switch could be an issue but its more does it fit the forks and stem ok? Reason I ask is I am trying to find a yoke with...

  4. Africa Twin
    For the CRF1000L Africa Twin, I have been reading that damage to the frame may entail complete frame replacement, as there is no rear subframe. In addition, I get the impression that the Honda oem accessory bars, are just that, and not implied by Honda to be crash protection. If this is the...

  8. Africa Twin
    I have a 1989 RD03 and the front end feels like it's made of jelly. If I shake the bars when stationary the whole front end wobbles back up through the bars. This also happens when moving at low speeds (below 10mph) and when coming to a stop which throws the whole bike off balance. Once moving...

    Hi, I'm new to this forum so I apologise if this has been discussed. I did so a search but couldn't find anything exactly like my problem. So, I bought myself some Heed Engine/Crash bars for my XL700 a few days ago and was looking forward to getting them on this weekend, XL 700V Transalp...

  12. Africa Twin
    Hi all, Has anybody fitted the "HeavyDuties" 60mm bar risers with Renthal FatBars ? I have HEL brake lines so they should be fine but what about speedo, clutch & throttle cables ? Bike is an RD03 and front end is stock apart from the brake lines. Traveling The World Two Up on a 1989...

    I needed a bracket for these engine protection bars(Africa Twin) the one I had was damaged and I couldn't get it to fit so I sent an email to the Fehling in Germany, 4 days later one was delivered free of charge. I have to say I'm really pleased and I thought it might help people know they are...
  19. Dominator / FMX
    Hi everyone. I have a 96 Dommie that I use for all sorts of travel on and off road. I noticed recently that the bars are moving more in the rubber mounts. Can the rubbers be removed and replaced? I tried tightening the nuts under the top yoke but still they seem to wobble more than before. I...
  20. Dominator / FMX
    Any tips please on how / where to mount a Garmin sat nav mount on my Dommie? On my other bikes I have used Telferizer bits to attach to either a clip-on bolt-hole or the hole in the top of the steering stem. Neither is an option on the Dommie. I'm thinking of mounting on the bars somehow /...
