  2. 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

    My 600 (1987) developed a flat spot this afterrnoon, around 4,500 revs she bogs down momentarily before picking up again. It feels like fuel starvation, except that she'll then shoot round to the red line with no problem. So, given that 90% of carburetor problems turn out to be electrical...

    2001 650 Brand new "motobatt" battery fitted recently, all working fine, then one cold morning it only had enough power to turn the engine over twice, then went flat. Battery recharged from the mains. then all starts fine I suspect the Oxford heated grips are killing the battery. They are...

    Hi i tried this today, Im not sure if it works on the road but it sits almost the same as my AT did. I fitted the swingarm from my 2000 AT onto my XL600v frame, The AT shock was too long but i tried the shock from a 650 TA and it slid straight in. It does look slightly lower than a pic of an AT...

    Hi I have recently bought a very cheap 1989 RD03. It had been stolen, and was written of by the insurance company. The thieves have painted it flat black, and broken some parts. Luckily the black paint comes of quite easily, without damaging the original paint or decals, but I'm having...

    Hi all. I’m building a scrambler / flat tracker from my FMX 650. My standard carb has two sets of electrical connections on it. What are these electrical connections for, what do they do??? I have a Keihen FCR flatslide carb to go on the bike when I’m finished the build but this carb doesn’t...

    Just bought a 2006 FMX 650. Found this strange custom header in a box of spares that came with the bike. Anyone have any idea if they would fit or the performance etc. Also got a spare 650 engine and a Keihin 42mm flatslide carb ;-) The engine and carb will be sold later just want opinions if...

    Hello troops thanks for the previous help much appreciated, now I'm wondering is the front sprocket meant to have some play in it, and what is the correct way round please im guessing the flat side has the retaining clamp as the way I found it other day it had the ridge facing out with the clamp...

    Oh yes. Deano's new shiney Africa Twin DCT would not start with a flat battery and you cant bump them (I think??) so the jump leads out and my old AT saved the day! :thumb:

    Building a 20mm box bender. Hi guys, I am in the process of building a flat tracker from a Varadero frame. I'll post a thread up when I get a chance, but here's a picture of the project. At the moment though I need some 20mm box section bending so I can fabricate a rear subframe. Here are...

    Lots of researching and can't figure out what would be best for crack repairs. Front fairing on my 97 xrv has 2 cracks leading down from windscreen. 1 crack dead ends into bolt hole from top 1/2inch long, the other opposite side from top down for about 2 inches. Never done repairs on this stuff...

    My headlights stopped working because a wire came loose from the back of the fusebox.(see pic) Probably I can simply stick the wire back where it came from and squeeze the metal clamps tight again. As you can see on the pic the clamps (where the wire should be fitted) are visible in the...
