  1. Dominator / FMX
    Hi. I have bought an FMX. Currently I have more important problems solve with it, but in future I would like to at least upgrade exhaust + carb jet + air filter. I have done exhaust manual rework for my suzuki gs500 in past. I just cut off old can and welded new straight can onto it. Also...
  2. Dominator / FMX
    Hello, I guess this is my first post here. I hope to post more. I have bought an FMX 650 2006. There are no stickers on it, except one on front fender, and one on right gas tank side, but they are not original. I was wondering, is there any electronic version of stickers, whether they are...
