  1. Powdercoat colour engine cases XRV650

    Africa Twin
    So I’m rebuilding a ‘89 XRV650 and I want to paint the engine. The side cases I removed and I want them to be powdercoated but I’m in doubt about the colour. Powdercoat can be done in most RAL colours. Anyone ever done this and know which colour comes closest to the original?

  6. C90 v Dominator

    Dominator / FMX
    Can someone explain to me why the price of a Honda C90 on ebay on most cases seems to be a lot more than a Dominator?

  19. Storing a bike with E5 fuel

    Dominator / FMX
    I've been reading up on this. Most fuel is E5 and it's going to go to E10 soon. The ethanol draws in moisture and separates from the petrol (phase separation) and the resulting acidic mix sits at the bottom of the fuel tank rotting it away from the inside. The general concensus seems to be that...
