  6. Engine missing a beat at idle?

    Africa Twin
    My 1994 RD07A is intermittently missing a beat at idle? It does need some carb work and is idleing a little high. But every once in a while it seems to have a little hiccup. There is a mechanical “click” sound then a miss in the RPMs. It’s just for an instant, then returns to normal. This...

  8. 1999 RD08 Tickover Issues

    Dominator / FMX
    Really hoping one of you knowledgeable folk on here can help as I'm having issues with the bike popping on tickover (tickover problems seem common for the nx650 by the looks of things). Sometimes the revs will hang high after small throttle input and other times the revs will drop and die but on...
  9. dashboard lights mask for painting

    Africa Twin
    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...

    Clothing
    Just thought I would let you all know about this waistcoat with high collar. My first go with heated gear and even though it was 10 degrees in the Yorkshire Dales there was always a cold wind. I was wearing a decent Merino wool base layer and the waistcoat over that plus a well known 3 layer...
  12. High compression piston for Dominator?

    Dominator / FMX
    I'm hoping to build a special dominator motor with a high compression piston - say 10.5:1 No problem I thought, as Wiseco do them for the XR650L - which is the same as the Dominator right? Does anyone know 100% for sure if this is true of all XR650L motors because the Wiseco catalogue does not...
  13. Any experiences with the YSS Rear shock on XL650 Transalp ?

    Transalp
    I'm thinking of buying a YSS to replace the very tired original shock. I bought one for my 750AT and it jacked the rear up by 3". Nice shock but the seat is high now. Is the Transalp YSS the same deal ?
  14. Idle 'tick-over' & mixture adjustment screw

  17. Running Temperature

    Africa Twin
    I'd be interested to know what average running temperature you guys have. I went for a 150 mile ride yesterday and the temp reached 107. The road conditions were dry, 19C and an average speed 80-90, continuous for 2hrs or so. The temp gauge showed two marks below red so nowhere near boiling but...
  18. Honda FMX 650 smokes when very hot

    Dominator / FMX
    Hi to all, I am currently facing an issue with my FMX. While it does not smoke not at all (at least not visibly) when it warms up (very hot) it starts to smokes (mainly from the right exhaust). This however does not happen every time that the motor warms up, so the occurrence is irregular. I...
