  7. Engine options for XL600LM w/ cracked heads

    I definitely want to buy a 650 LM. The only problem is that at around 50,000km, and often even less less, they all suffer from the cracked head syndrome. What are the options? Does Honda sells updated heads? Any other Honda engine will fit in replacement of the 600cc lump? Has a company found...

  10. front wheel compatibility

    Anyone know whether the different year models/ front wheels are compatible? I have an '09 model with a cracked front rim.

  11. Brass nuts

    Dominator / FMX
    Nothing to do with cold weather! On the back of the headlight surround on the Dommie there are four nuts set into the plastic, into which the instrument / surround screws go. They're like short brass barrels with a threaded hole, and they're machined / knurled on the outside to help them grip...
