    CRF - New Forum!
    My Buddy's 450 just out for a couple of hours work, and then riding today :thumbup: Daytime MOT only, IIRC there needs to be power spun back out of the rotor and stator to power lights and sundries to get a full MOT? Tall bike though! And kick start only, which is nice ;) Is this around the...
  5. Monoshock question.

    Dominator / FMX
    I have been looking for a cheaper solution to buying a brand new shock absorber for my dommie and came across some that look similar to the one on my dommie. Has anyone tried fitting the rear shock from a Honda VFR 750 (RC24) as they look the same apart from the remote reservoir and its only 2mm...
  6. Not another monoshock question from the scouse git in Denmark.

    Dominator / FMX
    Greetings chaps, I have found an Ohlins TTX 44 Mk 2 from a Husaberg supermoto for sale and was wondering if it can be modified to fit my dommie project. All I can find out is that its 4.5 cm shorter than the dommie mono between the bolt holes. This will obviously reduce the ride hight which is...
  7. Wilbers Monoshock.

    Dominator / FMX
    I am thinking of buying a Wilbers monoshock for my flattracker project . Have any of you chaps used one on a dommie and are they worth the expense? They have two types for the RD02. The eco-line 540 and the 640 which is about £60 more expensive. Is it worth paying the extra just to have the...

  11. Monoshock bushes?

    Africa Twin
    Morning, The AT has just failed it's MoT due to a rather startling amount of up-down play where the top of the monoshock mounts to the frame. Looking at the parts fiche I can't make out whether there's a replaceable bush in that part of the shock or whether the whole unit is going to need...

  13. How easy is it to remove the monoshock?

    Mechanical Advice
    I need to remove the hagon monoshock on my 600TA to adjust it and the Haynes book of lies says it’s a simple job of lifting the back end up then unbolting 3 bolts? Surely it can’t be that simple?:confused: I’m planning to tie a couple of ropes around the pannier racks then over the roof beam...
  14. How to ajust HAGON Monoshock while on the bike???

    Mechanical Advice
    I need to wind up the pre-load on the Hagon Monoshock on the 600TA since it’s getting a bit soft. Is there I way I can do this with it still attached to the bike? Bearing in mind I need to unlock the ring around the top adjuster before I can even move it so can’t just bash it with a rod and...

  18. Adjusting Hagon Mono-shock?

    Mechanical Advice
    Silly question but how do you soften the hagon mono shock. The previous owner had it turned up so tight that there is very little damping affect so it’s almost like riding a hard tail bike. I have just ordered a spanner off Hagon I presume I just find what ever bolt the spanner goes around and...
