  2. Bikes For Sale / Wanted
    I have decided to sell my 1989 Dominator NX 650 K It has MOT to May 2019, new tyres last year, although rear has worn down quite quickly. Mileage is around 14700 atm, believed genuine, some history to prove Starts, runs, rides, rear shock weak (for my weight 150kgs), whirrs in second, but still...
  3. Wheels, Tyres & Tubes
    Hi guys, I'm looking to get some more agressive tyres for my XRV 750 RD07 1996, as I will be riding a lot of sand and dirt here in Australia. I have until now run Mitas E07, but would love a bit more grip in the sand. I am looking at a TKC 80 for the front. Interested in the new Motoz...
  4. Transalp
    Just gave my 2009/2010 XL700 a really good clean. My forks are a bit battered and I looked at them closely with the aim of simply giving then a quick sand and a coat of hammerite. I noticed an odd mark on the axle clamp and upon closer inspection it turned out to be a crack running most of the...
  5. Transalp
    I'm taking my TA700 to Morocco in October and we'll be doing some riding in sand. I've been advised to get a foam air filter as apparently they filter out finer particles than other ones. Is it possible to get a foam air filter for the TA700? I can't find one. Thanks

  8. Dominator / FMX
    Hi all, I have been lurking XRV for a some time and a member since late last year, watching the Dominator threads with great interest. I have been out of the bike scene for nearly 20 years and for a long time I have been looking for something to get the passion back. Having had the most...
  9. Dominator / FMX
    My RD08 carb inlet rubber arrived today from Germany , it was only £20 but it was a 34bhp restricted one. A couple of hours with a rasp , file and fine sand paper and a lot of black dust it looks like I got a few more bhp out of the thing. All i need now are the jets and needle for my...
  10. Africa Twin
    All this talk of the new CRF1000 has got me wondering how long my RD04 might last - it's 25 years old! If I can get another 10 years out of it I might be able to afford a second-hand CRF...maybe. It's got "only" 52000km on the clock (which might be genuine) so on mileage alone it'll do another...
  11. Bodgers Corner
    I've been looking for a way to widen the dominator footrests for a while, a search on e bay a few weeks ago came up with these for about £6 since the weather was shite today i decided to have a go at fitting them. I've got wide footrests on the xr and it does make a difference on your feet...

  14. XR
    Evening All, I've done a Forum Search and read what I can find, looking for the latest views and advice on tyres for my XR400. On collection today it has the original OEM 2000 tyres!

  16. Chatter
    I´m new to this forum, still not owning a gravel bike, but have big plans to sell my current bike (a Honda VFR800Fi) and buy a trail bike. Reason is I dont get the same thrill out of the road bike after hitting a deer in 2012, and as I have been riding bothe MX as Enduro in the past, it feels a...

    Had great service from Dave at the above Bought a set of Rev'It Sand pants last year after searching almost a year for a set that did what I wanted and needed. They have been the best I've had. They have been thoroughly tested for waterproofness on the recent Pyrenees trip and worked fine On...
  18. Dominator / FMX
    Just kidding. My engine is done and ready to drop back into the frame and before I put it back in I have decided to polish the engine casings instead of painting them. I have started with 220 grit sand paper and work my way through 600 then 400 wet and dry but its I long and tedious task. I have...
