    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).

    Varadero
    Right then, I've done heaps of mods to my 2000 Varadero over the years & tbh I fell out of love with it about 18 months ago. I still really like the bike & would never sell it, but I just ran out of ideas with the too soft rear end. I tried lots of things, first was jackup plates with the...
