  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...

    Dominator / FMX
    In the box of parts that came with the '89 NX650 that I just bought, I found the metal plate/sticker that shows the VIN, tire pressure info, model year, etc. Where does this thing belong on the bike? I want to glue it back on, but I can't find it on parts diagrams.
  4. Coolant hose replacement advice

    Africa Twin
    I would like to replace my coolant hoses on my RD03. Honda parts are NLA. I was reviewing threads about the Samco or other aftermarket hoses and found threads that stated that some hoses were incorrectly sized. Those hose kits are pretty dear. Can't see paying that much for parts that are...

  6. CRF1000L rear shock on XRV750 RD07

    Africa Twin
    Hi, did anyone try the rear shock of the CRF1000 on an RD07. First , will it fit dimensionally and how does it behave. I find the CRF rear suspension more comfortable and want to fit the shock on my RD07a. The CRF shock can be found relatively cheap as second hand, and saves the investment in an...

    Hi, I have a red 1999 XL600V Transalp with a damaged headlamp cowl. I have found a replacement cowl online which is red but I'm not sure the colour will match. Does anyone know if there were different shades of red used on this model/year? I've attached a picture of my bike. It's quite an...
  8. Dominator gauge-block differences on diff. generations

    Dominator / FMX
    Hello! A quick question: are there any differences in the back-cover (most importantly in mounting points) of the speedoblock depending on the generation, i.e. are they identical and/or swappable? Happened to break the mounting ears on mine of a 1995 RD08 while carelessly tackling a motocross...

    Dominator / FMX
    HI guys. This is my rear wheel broken. I can't tell for sure if it broke before or just after I bought the bike. I can't find any other used FMX wheel anywhere on the internet.

    Hi guys, I wanted to restore the white paint for the dashboard light controls (Fuel, High-Beam...) of my RD03 (and I would not mind to do the same for the RD07). I thought my patience would have been enough but I found out the characters are too small for free painting, even with the thinnest...

    XR
    Having refurbished my rear brake callipers on my 1996 XR250R, I though the front callipers would be the same ..... BUT alas not. I discovered phenolic pistons in the front callipers ? Am wondering if they’re worth re-using, as i’ve never come across phenolic pistons before and I was...
