  1. XR400 Exhaust Diffuser/baffle tube and Duct/Snorkel for airbox

    I'm trying to return my XR400 to standard specs. As it seems that many XR owners remove these items, I'm hoping that someone has a diffuser and snorkel for sale! If you do, please send me a message. Thanks.

    Dominator / FMX
    I'm running a naked, tatty RD08 '99 Dominator and want to cover up the battery / air box.

  6. Phil's Dommie

    Dominator / FMX

Thought I'd share the result . . . This bike was a standard '99 NX650 with tatty bodywork and a few...

    This afternoon there was a very brief bit of chanting outside the High Court: it went "FREE DALE FARM!" and was linked to the auld woman who was trying to get a last minute suspension of the eviction notice which expires at midnight.

  17. WARM MUFF . . . keeps hands warm.

    What's it worth?
    This cold snap got me thinking about the MUFFS i made for the last welsh invasion. I am designing a mark 2 model so it seems sensible to let someone else have the benefit of my custom made bar muffs. They are a perfect fit over the standard hand guards so would fit the TA as well...
