    Dominator / FMX

Then the ignition rotor would need to be changed (the FX on has more pips on it). I'm sure the TPS is the same on both bikes. The only casualty I think...

  7. Cornwall Road safety

    Chatter
    Had this e-mailed to me today from the council road safety unit, not sure if they are concerned about what the public think from a biking point of view or whether they have just run out of ideas themselves about what to put on the signs.
