  1. Blown bulb

    Dominator / FMX
    My dommie’s tail light failed on the way home last night. The first clue was when a trucker flashed his lights at me after I passed him on the M25. A couple of others flashed but it’s remarkable how many of my fellow motorists didn’t! Also remarkable what a faff it is to get to the bulb. Both...

  13. 48,000 miles. Valve clearances?

    Dominator / FMX
    My '99 Dommie is getting close to 48,000 miles, I've had it 4 years and about 12,000 of those miles. It's due for an oil and filter change which I can do myself but I wonder if it's time for more complex work, like getting the valve clearances checked / adjusted, which I couldn't do myself. What...

    Dominator / FMX
    OK guys sorry for the WTF but I have had this bike two years in February 2017 and since I have had the bike I have know there has been a slight blow from the exhaust manifold.

  17. Instrument panel light colour

    Mechanical Advice
    Some of the bulbs have blown and I'm considering replacong them with LEDs - which enables me to pick a colour. I'm aware that red is least detrimental to night vision but is also one of the hardest colours for seeing details. For those of you who went down the coloured road, what colour did...

  19. Daft question (it is..there's no denying it..) about the fuse box (RD04)

    Africa Twin
    How the heck do I open it? The entire bike is dead and I suspect (aka I hope) a blown main fuse but I can't get into the box and whilst I could force...I don't really want it. There's what appears to be a tab on the "front" (that's the say the side of the box closest to the rear of the bike). Is...
