  3. Carb tuning

    I am about to try and tune my flatside carb when I get my bike started :D:D:D I used one of these on an old Z650 I had alongside a balancer guage I have. Do you reckon this will work on my Keihin FCR flatside that I want on my Dommie. I know these days we have gone digital with Co2 but I love...

    Dominator / FMX
    Has anyone fitted a flatside carb to their dommie? I have sorted out a RD08 inlet manifold and have the jets and needle required on order from a guy in Holland as they dont seem to be available in the uk and he has to order the needle from the Japan which will be another two weeks. I just...
  7. RD08 Carb inlet rubber

    Dominator / FMX
    My RD08 carb inlet rubber arrived today from Germany , it was only £20 but it was a 34bhp restricted one. A couple of hours with a rasp , file and fine sand paper and a lot of black dust it looks like I got a few more bhp out of the thing. All i need now are the jets and needle for my...
  8. Keihin Flatside.

    Dominator / FMX
    I am looking for an inlet manifold rubber for the Keihin flatside I bought for christmas. I have been looking for a GB500 one but they are as rare as a honest politician. The FX650 seems to be pointing to one side and the research I have done says that the carb should be on a five degree upward...

  12. Wanted/needed spanner monkey (xr650r) in or near exeter

    Hi, as I mentioned in another thread, I have bought my second XR650R. It is not standard. It has a full FMF exhaust, Mikuni 40mm flatside pumper carb, stage 1 hot cam and a modified air box. It starts and runs fine for (what seems like) as many miles as I want as long as I don't come down to...

    I have been offered a flatside carb for my flat tracker project thats been on hold for a few months and was wondering if any of you guys have done this modification. The part number is 16100-MEB-671 . Is it worth getting to fit on my dommie?:thumbup:
