  2. One year on....

    Since purchasing the budget priced (new 'uns could be had for 5.5k at the time) 650 Strom just over a year ago, it struck me that this is one of the few recent bikes that has managed to break the '9 month honeymoon' period! As I'm now Transalp-less it'll be here a while longer. Overall, the...

    Dominator / FMX
    As a new owner of a rather shabby but mechanically sound SLR 650 I would be grateful for any advice Is there anywhere online that I can get an Owners/Workshop manual? The bike needs a new seat cover but I guess that can be recovered locally although I would like to have the 650 logo on it...

    Africa Twin
    Has anyone fitted a Hepco and Becker top box rack onto the Africa Twin OE rack? (I'm thinking of the steel L-shapped H&B rack for their bigger top boxes, not the flat plastic thing for the smaller/cheaper ones). Now, there is a specific AT rack, but what worries me is that some pictures I've...

    Dominator / FMX
    I am thinking of buying a Wilbers monoshock for my flattracker project . Have any of you chaps used one on a dommie and are they worth the expense? They have two types for the RD02. The eco-line 540 and the 640 which is about £60 more expensive. Is it worth paying the extra just to have the...

  12. DNA Air Filters

    DNA - High Performance Filters Anyone used these on their TA? A search didn't yield any results. They are quite highly thought of on the Yam XT660 forum.
