    Hi. I have bought an FMX. Currently I have more important problems solve with it, but in future I would like to at least upgrade exhaust + carb jet + air filter. I have done exhaust manual rework for my suzuki gs500 in past. I just cut off old can and welded new straight can onto it. Also...

  6. Fuel exhaust -Africa Twin

    Africa Twin
    I see from FaceAche that Fuel Exhausts have (at last) produced an exhaust for the (real ;)) 2003 Africa Twin. Looks and sounds good. Fuel used to offer a forum discount .. i don't know if it's still given, though. (No harm in asking, if you're looking for an exhaust - the stuff's good...
  7. Scrambler Build

    Dominator / FMX
    So here's my build to throw into the pot. Are there any original dominators left?! :p Wanted to go down the scrambler route rather than the street tracker look, as wanted it to be able to cope with some off roading. Have therefore made up a tray in the subframe which will house most of the...
  8. RD08 Exhausts

    Dominator / FMX
    Just bought an RD08, really nice to ride and goes well. 99% of it is in good order, however the exhausts (pipe to muffler) are shot. my first peak under the side panels last night revealed a very sorry state of affairs (much disappointment). Been looking around and I cannot decide on a course...
  9. how interchangeable are the RD04 and RD07 Exhausts?

    Africa Twin
    Ideally the header as I have just noticed a crack in the collar for the rear pipe where it attaches above the front pipe into the system. I can get it welded up easily enough (cut the old collar off and get a new one welded on) but on the off chance they are a straight swap I might just stump up...

  11. Just got a Transalp -92. What is your recommended modifications?

    Hi there! My first motorbike (since my 125cc motocross) is a Transalp 600 1992 in great condition. Already love it. I kind of like how quiet it is, but if I could gain a few horsepowers, I could consider a cooler sound :) What exhausts do you recommend? Is it worth it? I hate the dull...

    Right after 28 years and 26000 miles my exhausts are beyond repair ( plated the last 3 years ) I'm looking for twin exhaust and stainless down pipes, down pipes aren't a problem but rears are. Stumbled across these on the bay anyone used:purchased ? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. Exhaust stain and heat mark remover

    Mechanical Advice
    If you want a cheap way of removing heat marks and road residue and muck..... Just rub some of this on your exhaust with a brush, leave for 10 minutes and then give it a scrub and hose off with cold water. Works superb on my varadero 1000 exhaust. Only good on stainless exhausts though. Sent...

  17. New Scorpion Pipes

    I've just had my first ride with my new Scorpion pipes fitted. It was only a local tootle about with a few short dual carriageways. I loved the sound of them in my garage with the baffles in so I thought for my first ride i'd take them out. “Ay caramba!” that is one hell of a growl. I don't...
  18. Which exhausts ?

    I have decided to purchase a new set of exhausts for my 2012 Vara. My original choice was Akraprovic but unfortunately my few years of ummmiiiinnng and aaahhhiinnnggg means I can't get them now due to the main importer not having any left and not able to get them. The question I put to you...
  19. 2000 Dominator Carb removal and re-jetting help please.

    Dominator / FMX
    As you may know I've replaced the original silencers on my 2000 NX650 with the end cans off a Triumph Street Triple (see original post). Now the winter nights are here I'd like to 'up' the main jet a bit as per comments on other people's posts about changing exhausts & air filters. So, I've...
  20. Thinking of a Varadero - advice needed

    Hi, I'm attracted to the Varadero as my Falco is just too uncomfortable and the Vara fairing seems to allow 90-100 mph cruising in comfort. My concern is that the off-road styling means that the exhausts are exactly where the panniers should go - photos I've seen seem to make the bike as wide...
