    Hello ladies and gents, So, right in to it. As the title states my 2000 RD07 J-spec if that matters won't start. Quick clarification, I've hunted through the forum and thought I was on the right track on the parts I changed out. Symptoms: Fired it up this morning warmed up and idled fine, rode...

    Apologies for yet another possible carb issue / tickover problem post but before I go and take the bike for some dyno time and tweaking I've been trying to make sure everything else is ok. Work so far including recent work by the previous owner - new CDI carb clean and rejet to 60 pilot...

    Dear all, Lately I have been experiencing some nasty issue with the RD07 AT (1995). This issue popped up when driving for 30 km’s at around 130 km/h. Suddenly, the bike started to loose power and couldn’t maintain that speed. I stopped and couldn’t start it again. After a while it ran again...

I have read mostly all threats and post about XRV choke and lean problems and haven't find solution for my running lean problem.. slowly dropping revs and hunting idle... and only air leak that i can find is from choke. I have reamoved choke cable and pushed choke valve/plunger...

  7. Dominator / FMX
    Hello, Help needed please!!!... ;-) I've spent 5 years off and on trying to get an old 1996 Dommie working that I got off eBay. I soon realised that the original engine was fried, low compression, sludge oil, so replaced it with a 2005 FMX engine. Removed and blanked off the emission system. On...

    Hi, this is my 1st post as i'm totally new to this forum having bought a fairly 'tatty' 1996 XR250 a week ago. (my 1st dirt bike) :happy7: The bike starts quite easy, & the engine sounds really good. (my main reason for paying a good price for the bike) But I have suspicion that carb jetting...

    Hello and nice to meet you all! I have been experimenting with 3D printing for a while, and I have designed and printed those nasty choke adaptors that always break! I have printed them in a special type of ABS plastic durable to temperatures up to 140 celcius. Have them on the bike for 3 months...

    Well as it says folks im getting about 50 miles less to the tank with normal back and forth to work. Over the xmas period ive removed the tank and popped the choke plunger out and sprayed lots of carb cleaner in the choke plunger location ive checked the carbs for being balanced wand there about...

    Hi, I intend blanking off the chokes on my AT. Will I remove the chokes completely, or fix them permanently in the open position? If I remove them, what will I use to cap the opening? Regards, Pat F.

    TA 650 (probably applies to all models though) For anyone thinking of doing this..on the 650 its a bit of a job. The Haynes manual says you just "attach the lower end of the new cable to the upper end of the old cable, and just pull the cable through", yeah, right. What it fails to mention...
  13. Mechanical Advice
    Bike wont start! Exhasut makes loud bang after piston change and setting cam timing. I got a stomp juicebox 3 110cc off my friend. He told me he was riding it and the bike slowed down and when he turned it off it wouldn't turn back on. I knew a bit about bikes and after searching forums and...

    My RD07A have started to behave strange when it is cold. It starts with full choke but dies after a while. I can start it again but slowly dies. If I add throttle it dies at once. When the engine gets warm there is no problem only when cold. It can take 15 min struggling wit hstart gas and...
  15. Dominator / FMX
    Hi everyone. Didn't realise this forum existed until I had problems and searched online. Also didn't realise that Dominators are getting rarer. I'm 59 years young and been riding since '78. I've owned a '96 Dommie since '99, though have hardly used it over the last 3 years - less than 100 miles...
  16. Dominator / FMX
    As you know I had some issues with the bike, two new CDI's from ebay and nothing, some coughing and spluttering but the bike wasn't starting reliably and then the carb decided to piss fuel all over the garage floor. Carb was fixed easy enough, broke the choke but had a spare, still with the crap...
  17. Africa Twin
    Hello guys! I have been reading the forum for a few years since I got my first AT and now decided to make an account to ask you for advice! I didn't know how to name the topic so you can get an idea from the title what is the problem... But now I will explain :icon_smile: I got a '96 RD07A in...
  18. Africa Twin
    This is a strange one... When I start the bike on the side stand and use choke the bike idols around 1200rpm, BUT if i lean the Bike over untill it’s level then the revs climb to 2500-3000rpm. This only happens with the choke on. when I’m moving the bike on or off the side stand the handle...

    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...
  20. Dominator / FMX
    Since changing the CDI my Dominator starts fine first thing in the morning, garaged over night, after work though she is a pig to start. Again garaged all day in a public car park. Messing about with different amounts of choke the bike backfires bad and then eventually starts. The only other...
