    Dominator / FMX
    So I got hold of an FCR-MX 40mm carb from a CRF250R. I am slowly working my way towards getting it to fit right without grinding off the decellerator cable housing or cutting the frame. I am an intake boot off of an FX650. It fits but still need to check it out. In the meanwhile I made a...

    Morning All, I'm toying with the idea of fitting a Supermoto/MX style high mudguard to my 89 Alp partly because I like the way they look and also because I hope to have a go at some green laning and read a few posts about mud possibly clogging under the standard mudguard. Does anyone who has...

    Africa Twin
    G'day from downunder. Since 2009, three of us have been 'organising' a biennial ride called Desert Raid. We don't really organise anything - we simply pick a date and a remote place in WA with no town or supplies within 150-200km and then start a thread on the Oz forum on Advrider. That's it -...

  19. MOT Fail on the most expensive single item- Rear Shock

    Africa Twin
    OK. My XRV has failed the MOT today on the rear shock. Oil leaking on spindle and no rebound dampening. My sphincter is twitching at the cost of replacement shock !! The MOT guy offered a rebuild for £100 plus parts cost? Not sure what this could go up to. He's a general MOT guy and races MX...
