    Dominator / FMX
    Hey NX650 from 1988. Have a jet kit in the mail and planning on doing Dave's mod. I wanted to take the carburetor apart and clean it up before hand, but having trouble getting two of the screws in the float chamber out - seem very soft and I don't want to ruin them. I have PH and PZ...
  4. Crank case breather bottle?

    Dominator / FMX
    Hi again On the left side of the carb on my Dommie there is a plastic bottle type container which I assume is part of the crank case breather. Certainly in the diagrams I have found, that appears to be what it is. Can I remove it and replace it with a bit of tube that does away with the bottle...

    Most of Henrietta is now back where it should be and looking tidy. Under the tank is just the fuel pipe to the pump but the parts diagram seems to show other hoses (parts 45, 46 & 48). there seem to be 2 short pipes under the tank (nr the fuel tap), one is 10.5mm and the other 5.5mm. Does anyone...

  11. Oil Leak

    Mechanical Advice
    Hi chaps.. Got an oil leak on Africa Twin RD07A. It seems to be originating from the area of the oil filter. Drops of oil seem to drip onto the bash plate and from there drip onto the ground. Could just be the oil filter seal, but is there anything else in that area of the bike that might be the...
  12. Is the crankcase breather pipe supposed to be plugged?

    Africa Twin
    Did some servicing on my AT today (changed the fork fluid, which looked quite good for almost 50000 miles), and I noticed the end of the breather pipe from the crank case was plugged. I yanked the plug out, and out came a bunch of water mixed with a little bit of oil sludge which smelled...

  17. Unconnected pipe mystery

    Africa Twin
    Hello, Just doing some general fettling on the AT last weekend which involved lifting the fuel tank. I spotted what looks like a breather pipe (photo below) which is only connected at one end, the other end has a clip on the end which suggests it should be connected to something - the Haynes...
