  5. 2nd gear rattle.

    Africa Twin
    Hello! I did a quick search in the forum but didn't find anything similar to my issue. My 2nd gear rattles quite a lot when I open the throttle throughout all the rev range.

    Dominator / FMX
    For those that like that kind of thing, the current issue of Bike magazine has a feature on a French-made custom from a Dommie donor bike. July 2019 edition, page 20. The engine, bash plate and front half of the frame look familiar, but that’s about all! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Hi All, I've tried searching but haven't managed to find a definitive answer. Is there a direct replacement carb that would fit a 1999 nx650? I was going to strip and rebuild mine as it's got the usual tickover issue but if there is a better replacement that could be used I may well just go...

    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...
