  1. Hi guys, what is sprockets tooths numbers on an FMX

    Dominator / FMX
    I bought a XR650R (thicker) 15T front sprocket, then I found out that on my FMX front sprocket is 14T. Which is original? 14T or 15T? BTW I found on the INTERNET that people are fitting XR650R front sprocket on XR650L to prevent it from cutting into sprocket splines. Please note that XR650L and...

  6. Honda NX650 Dominator

    Dominator / FMX
    Does anyone out there have any experience of fitting a Keihin FCR41 Flat Slide Carb to a Dominator? I was told by a carb specialist that this would be an improvement and a little more power. If so, how hard is it and what would I have to do .? Thanks in advance Ian Melrose
  7. Fuel pumps - will an RD04 fit an RD03?

    Africa Twin
    Fuel pump playing up again, going to swap the points but would like to pick up a spare. RD03 pumps don't seem to be available but pumps for later models are. There looks to be quite a difference in list price which makes me wonder if they are very different, any one tried fitting a later OE...
  8. Where does this go?

    Africa Twin
    Good evening I'm in the process of changing the front sprocket on my RD07a. I removed the sprocket cover and then the old sprocket. I was merrily cleaning all the old crud away before fitting the new one when this little fella dropped out. I have no idea where it goes so any help would be...

  10. Alloy wheels

    Dominator / FMX
    I would like to customise my FX650 and wonder if anyone has fitted alloy 3 spoke wheels [like those on a Suzuki GS500] to their Honda. If this is a doable how complex is it or is there an easy way of fitting wheels from another bike which need little modification. Any photos would be helpful.
  11. Rear Wheel From 98 RD04 fitting an RD03 88?

    Africa Twin Technical Specs
    Hi all, My Rear wheel of my 88 RD03 has serious rim rot and the bike won't get through an MOT. I've been trying to source a new rear wheel but had no luck. I have found a rear wheel from a 1998 model and wondering if it would fit? Thought I'd ask hear for advice. My other route is to get a...
  12. KTM fork conversion fitting Rugged roads adaptor help

    Africa Twin
    Does anyone know how to remove the lower triple clamp from a set of ktm 950 forks? I have the bearings off but the steering tube is stuck solid and my finger cant't take another whack with the lump hammer. Also when I get this off how do I fit the adaptor back in? Thanks
  13. CRF450X supermoto wheel/tyre chain clearance

    CRF - New Forum!
    Title says it all really. Looking at my 450X with standard wheel and enduro tyre, there's not a lot of clearance between the tyre and the chain. Thinking about fitting supermoto wheels and wondered if the wider tyres run into chain clearance issues. Anyone done this and can comment?
  14. Tubeless tyre's

    Africa Twin
    Made a boo boo and bought a tubeless rear tyre. I've always fitted my own but they've all been tubed tyres. This one is especially ridged and i reckon could be a bit of a bugger to get on. Anyone with any experience of fitting tubeless tyres ? Cheers Bob.
  15. VTR tank on a Varadero?

    Varadero
    As the title suggests, I am toying with the idea of altering my Varadero by fitting a different petrol tank from a VTR, has anyone done this or used a tank from a different bike? If so how difficult and what was required? All replies welcome:thumbup:
  16. Dynojet experiece

    Africa Twin
