Thought I’d post a couple of pictures of progress so far.
I picked up a tatty FMX in March 18 and since the have been slowly rebuilding it in the style of a tracker / Scrambler hybrid.
Still lots of tidying to do but the basics are now done and I like the direction it’s going.
It’s all my...

Bought this from the manufacturer a couple of months ago with the intention of replacing my old worn one but never fitted it as I found a good complete seat instead.

Can anyone point me in the right direction to find a replacement set of swing arm bearings to the Honda FMX. Genuine Honda one seem to be discontinued and are very very expensive. Are there any pattern
parts out there ?
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...
Odd question I know
Fan switch was faulty and welded solidly in place in my 1994 600 Transalp
I fitted a manual switch instead, and although it is just replacing the original fan switch I am now obsessing if somehow the fan is running the wrong way.
When in heavy traffic the fan doesn't seem...
I picked up my xrv rd07 yesterday it's in really good condition, I'm thinking of just riding and enjoying it for now, I want to just ad a few things just to keep the road grime from the main parts of the bike,
I've noticed that there is no rear splash guard that protects the shock, has any one...
my sprocket carrier bearing is knackered and I need to replace it and the seal that covers it . the seal that wemoto offers is the wrong size and I feel this is the reason the bearing failed . I have found a cheaper alternative koyo bearing on ebay from brooksbarn Honda XL 600 VK Transalp 1990...

Just bought a 2001 Varadero 1000 which is an import from Europe, so my question is that I need a UK spec headlight and speedo, did Honda use a headlight from another bike on the Vardero or am I stuck with shelling big bucks out for a new one. If anyone can point me in the direction of...
Hi everybody! After finally getting the right brake pads for my rear caliper I have since "finished" my scrambler in working order. However I still need to fit some gauges and I'd like to take a look at the pin-out or schematics for the original dash before tackling this job :)
I would greatly...
I have been given a xr 125 field bike no engine number frame number etc.
The bike is a basket case and i am slowly getting it back together the engine is electric start not kick start could somebody point me in the direction of a suitable wiring diagram for this bike please.
I was coming back along the M8 from Glasgow today about lunchtime and spotted a white zebra-liveried Africa Twin heading in the other direction; it was the same colour scheme as Massive Lee's, and like the one I saw at the Scottish Motorbike Show in 2014. I think it had a big BMW GS for...
