    Does anyone out there have any experience of fitting a Keihin FCR41 Flat Slide Carb to a Dominator? I was told by a carb specialist that this would be an improvement and a little more power. If so, how hard is it and what would I have to do .? Thanks in advance Ian Melrose

    Anyone here fitted a Delkevic silencer to their 650? Like this one below Does it interfere with genuine OEM pannier frames? Does it really add more power?

    I am faced by an issue where my XRV 750 RD07 is losing power when it reaches 6000rpm. It seems to be a fuel deprivation. Fuel tank has been checked for any impurities. Carburators have been cleaned and 1 diaphragm changed. No coil wires. Any suggestions please?

    So a while back one morning she failed to start, ignition dead. I traced this to the starter relay, and it was fairly well melted as is well documented - a bit of a wiggle and she came to life. So I ordered the new relay, which came - and now Ive fitted it I've run into issues and she wont...
