  3. Using Earth For Ignition Kill

    Dominator / FMX
    Hello Gents, If I wanted to use an earth fed switch (momentary push type) to kill the ignition, which wire do I need to feed the earth to? The standard Domi kill switch just cuts the power to the CDI, but I am trying to simplify the wiring and switches. Many thanks Jim

    I see lots of CRF250L bikes for sale that have had the original exhaust replaced. These are quite new low mile bikes just used for commuting/gentle green lane riding. Why would so many people choose to replace the exhaust?
  9. Clicking

    Africa Twin
    Good day gentleman, I recently became aware of a faint but distinct clicking sound coming from the top of the front cylinder at idle. Revving probably masks the sound because I cannot hear it then. Its totally random with no rhythm. Should I investigate/be worried??
