    Dominator / FMX
    Ran into an old friend this morning: It's the head of my domi which went to the wreckers in 2011. He still had it lounging around in a basket somewhere in a corner of the (rather messy) shop. Given the typical RFVC crack between the plug and the valves, and the rather "salted" outside, it...

    OK, next question I'm trying to identify the exact year of my bike but the engine number doesn't tally with the ones in the Clymer manual: MD11E-5105198 The manual shows MD11E-5100016 to 5103798 as 1985 but then jumps to 520xxxx for 1986, so doesn’t cover mine! So I can only guess...
