  1. Is the NX250 a sort of mini Dominator? Or a mini TransAlp?

    Dominator / FMX
    I've found a nice NX250, 1988 near me. Tempting even with the tiny wheels (16 inch). Is there a forum where convos about it might be found? It's also sold worldwide as the AX-1 and listed occasionally in the US as a Dominator... and I'm in the US. Thanks for any leads... t
  2. Fork height

  3. Best road tyres for CRF 1000?

    How to.....
    Any opinions yet for best road only tyres for the CRF 1000? I was thinking of Conti Trail Attack or Road Attack, which worked well on my BMW, but that did not have a 21 inch front wheel.

  5. SLR lean angle

    Dominator / FMX
    I have recently noticed that my SLR seems to be leaning over further than normal when on the side stand . When I stand the bike upright and put the side stand out ,If I put my boot under the stand I can lift it up about an inch. ie up and down movement. This inch makes a big difference to the...
  6. Just another dumb question.

    Dominator / FMX
    Before I go spending £30 plus postage on a braided hose for my rear brake, I was wondering if I could use the piece of braided rubber oil pipe that was left over from fixing the line from my oil tank to the cylinder head to replace the hose from the rear brake resevoir to the master cylinder...
  7. Velocity stack

    Dominator / FMX
    Does anyone know where I can get hold of an aluminium velocity stack/ bellmouth with an inside diameter of 55mm or 2 1/4 inch for you old school chaps. Its for sucking small children and little old ladies into my Keihin FCR-MX flatside carb. I can only find them in the states and the price...
  8. Honda XL500S wheel rim sizes for upgrade

    XL
    Hi all, got a spare set of wheels for my XL500s and am thinking about getting a spare set made up with new spokes and rims that will take a better selection of tyres as the front one being a 23 inch is difficult to get a decent tyre for. Can anyone recommend rim sizes that would take road biased...
  9. 23 inch tyres!! Arggghhhhhh

    Chatter
    It's such a shame that I might not consider a bike because of its 23 inch front tyre. Yes Bridgestone make a trail wing, but they are awful in the wet. Have I missed something? Does anyone make a sticky 23 inch!?

  11. Dominator Speedo correction

    Dominator / FMX
    Hi all, I got my 17 inch front wheel conversion finished and now obviously the speedo is misreading. I was wondering would a speedo drive from a FMX 650 fit on the 1996 dommie! I assume if it did that would cure the speedo misreading as that has a 17 inch front as standard?? Cheers!

  14. Fitting Intimators.

    Mechanical Advice
    I have a pair of these to install in an RD04. However, I've lost the fitting guide they came with. Can these be fitted without removing the fork stanchions from the yokes - or is it best done with the front end disassembled and the stanchions removed ? And those two (2 inch)spacer tubes --...
  15. Longer cables (throttle-, clutch-, breaking-, and choke)?

    Africa Twin
    Hi all, Iam planning to add both fork slugs (height increase 4,5 centimeters) and bar risers (3,5 inch, but pivoting forward - say 5 centimeters extra height) to my newly acquired AT RD04 (build thread coming soon...). I believe this will cause a need for longer cables/hoses, possibly all four...
  16. Wheel fitment

    Dominator / FMX
    Looking at replacing my front wheel from 21inch to 19inch. Will a 19inch from a SLR fit straight on using the 19inch front disc. Can I use the original caliper, brembo in my case (97 model) or do I use one from and SLR/Vigor. If so will the caliper bolt straight on to fork leg without...
  17. 18 inch wheel experience

    Africa Twin
    A thought for anyone considering increasing the size of their rear wheel. I have just changed two rear tyres on 18 inch rims I had fitted to @ hubs. The rims were different widths as Central Wheel had a standard size in stock when I contacted them, and I ordered the 3.5 as this was supposed to...

  20. Stop me spending £50 on a screwdriver!

    Dominator / FMX
    I've worked on bikes a large number of years and I cannot believe I cannot make something rather than spend soooo much on a screwdriver. I cannot believe I need to buy another screwdriver for one job, I have a million; cheaper to sell the bike! Has anyone worked out a way of adjusting the...
