    O’Neal Element Boots are some of the most popular among off-roading enthusiasts. And there are a few good reasons for that. First – they feature premium design, high-quality materials, and have a durable construction without breaking your bank. Second – they offer good protection to your feet in...
  2. Dominator / FMX
    So the weekend was supposed to be a wife free bike stripping and rough tickover solving couple of days with maybe a cheeky ride out or two. All started well other than an exhaust valve inspection cap trying to break while being removed but I managed to remove it with only minor damage. The...

    Hello, I've recently acquired a 1972 Honda XL250 Motosport and am currently restoring the bike. Before breaking the bike down, I noticed when kick starting the bike that it would make a sound (something like a crude click) and almost feel like it 'gave way' or was 'stripping/slipping' (for lack...
  5. Transalp
    Thought I'd post up a few details of my recent european 'oddessy' on the 'alp. spent the last five and a bit weeks hooning around france, belgium and the netherlands. Had a great time but one or two mishaps along the way. First 'mishap' in Limoges was forgetting to remove the U lock from the...
  6. Transalp
    Was doing a routine check and found that the front axle holder was broken and the nuts on the studs were so loose that they could come off by hand. Anyway as I do not have torque wrench I managed to snap 1 stud off and then was trying to put a temporary support plate which caused the other stud...

    Evening all, I’ve recently observed some strange behaviour on my old lady (RD03 AT with RD04 motor): After I’ve got her back from receiving some routine service incl. carb cleaning and a new choke cable she tends to stall when breaking somewhat stronger whilst simultaneously pulling the...
  8. Dominator / FMX
    Hi Guys, I am alive and well and still trying to use the Dominator at least once a week despite now owning a new bike. My plans to strip and rebuild the bike over the summer went out the window due to lack of funds. I have however had the front wheel off more times than I...

    Hi all, hope everyone is well! Unfortunately don't post on here very often but a recent bit of misfortune has prompted me to do so... Long story short, around a month ago was out for a ride on my beloved '52 plate RD07A when a blind Toyota Prius driver decided that i shouldn't be rubber side up...
  10. Dominator / FMX
    I'm in the process of bringing back to life, after five years of hibernation, a 2000 year registration Dominator, but have encountered a few issues while sourcing parts. My frame number is ZDCRD08AOXF321107. Is there a way of breaking down the frame number to identify model year, import model, etc ?
  11. Transalp
    Hi all! I figure you guys are best fit to deal with this query. Have had my 2010 XL700 Transalp for 3 years (or will have come August) and it is a beauty of a bike, even if I have had to sort out some issues. However, the standard Honda exhaust silencer gave up yesterday and now instead of...

    Hi All:) Just returned back home from a global circumnavigation on my XRV 750 RD04 (if anyone is interested: https://www.facebook.com/BonodoCowMan/) and due to my CDI breaking in china I had to let a Chinese mechanic connect it to another CDI from another bike in order to be able to continue...

    Latest rebuild is up and running will post some pics soon. I picked up some intiminators (cheers Ray) they are fitted as instructed with 5W fork oil, the front end now feels very stiff. I expected to loose a lot of the dive on braking and this has happened however the ride is now much less...
