  1. Dominator gauge-block differences on diff. generations

    Dominator / FMX
    Hello! A quick question: are there any differences in the back-cover (most importantly in mounting points) of the speedoblock depending on the generation, i.e. are they identical and/or swappable? Happened to break the mounting ears on mine of a 1995 RD08 while carelessly tackling a motocross...
  2. New shock advice.

    Dominator / FMX
    My nx650 RD02 (1989) is in need of a new shock. The current shock is an old Hagon that is at least 20 years old fitted by the previous owner and I doubt very much it is serviceable by the look of it. Im on a tight budget (meaning I don’t want to spend a fortune) but need to replace it...
  3. 1998 RD08 Wheel Offset

    Dominator / FMX
    Hi, I'm in the process of rebuilding both front and rear wheels on my 1998 RD08, problem is I've only got the 88-89 manual. According to this manual the front wheel offset is given as 22.25mm from the disk to the rim, this is probably ok for my '98 as nothing much changed from the RD02 model on...

  5. Will a NX650 RD02 Dominator rear wheel fit a XRV650 RD03

    Africa Twin
    My XRV650 RD03 needs its wheels replaced. It seems it was stored outside on grass for about 17 years. I have managed to get a Transalp 21" front in good condition and a ST1000 Pan European front left hand brake disk. Would a Dominator rear wheel fit? Good Dominator rear wheels are cheaper and...

    Dominator / FMX
    As above, somebody asked me if they will go... I said yes. But, a quick search reveals the wheel offset is different.. But that shouldn't affect the forks... Are there any other differences? Calliper mount maybe?
