  1. What's your fave filter / carb / exhaust set up?

    Dominator / FMX
    It'd be interesting to hear different folk's views . . . Are you happy with the stock configuration or are you searching for the perfect setup? Have you done Dave's carb mods? K&N vs Honda air filter? Anyone installed a dynojet kit? Airbox mods? After market pipe? pumper carb? cheers Philippo
