  7. Dommie engine for a 600R?

    XR
    Rather than go down the big bore route for my XR,I was mooting a swap for a Dommie lump. Anyone done this,and is it worth it? Its just that the power outputs I've seen,seems to suggest that the R is pushing out more power,even though its loosing 50cc. Am I right in thinking it's the same lump as...
  8. Spluttering before I get to Morroco. HELP!

    Transalp
    So the bike is all loaded up on the truck and I'll meet it Malaga in about 3 days. I have given the bike a bit f a shakedown 120miles. All seemed good until I must have been down to the last litre or 2 in the tank and I started to get a splutter. I switched onto the reserve and all seemed well...
  9. Any ideas how i should prepare an african adventure in 2 days.

    Transalp
    On the spur of the moment and after slouching on the sofa surfing the web I was inspired to head off for a very impromptu trip. Iv'e given myself 2 days to buy a bike and prep it for a trip to Morocco. Its going to be a bit of a rush job and a hell of an adventure. I just can't be bothered to go...
  10. off-road techniques

    XR
    When I was out with a few of the lads on Saturday I had a few problems getting up steep climbs that were mainly rock. Leigh on his XR250 also had the same problem, but the 2 x DRZ400's and a TTR250 didn't. Interesting. Leigh had sod all nobbles on his rear so he has an excuse, but I had a brand...

  12. Brutal ride in this morning

    Chatter
    Anybody else run the gauntlet this morning? Just spent two hours between Gloucester and Southampton in howling wind and lashing rain with the additional excitement of rubbish, branches, leaves and other debris in the road. Guess it livens up an otherwise boring ride. Feel like I've been through...

  18. Exhausted

    Dominator / FMX
    My 91 dommie has perfect pipes, I intend to keep em that way so I tried black grate polish. Graphite polish used for old fashioned hearths. Applied carefully with a toothbrush to hot pipes, it polishes off and leaves the pipes looking like that old Kawasaki black chrome from the 80's. Give it a go!
