I was wanting to get rid of the air box and put a K&N filter or similar on and wanted any advice on size, type or shape. As you can see from the attached it must be possible. Also probably need re jetting so again any or all advice welcomed. BTW K&N were less than helpful when I asked...
Just picked up a FMX 650 that’s had a replacement engine.
It came with the old engine that’s got a shagged piston but apart from that it’s in good shape.
I’m looking to buy a new piston and rebuild the old engine.
My question is can I use the same diameter 100mm piston from the XR650L...
Lots of researching and can't figure out what would be best for crack repairs. Front fairing on my 97 xrv has 2 cracks leading down from windscreen. 1 crack dead ends into bolt hole from top 1/2inch long, the other opposite side from top down for about 2 inches. Never done repairs on this stuff...
I bought a Dominator a few months ago because I want to improve my mechanical skills and a Domi should be simple and cheap.
So far so good.
The bike is in pieces right now - all according to plan.
The collar in the swingarm is in bad shape and I don't want to re-use it.
It has a lot...

Used but very serviceable condition.
Item located near Canterbury, Kent - happy to arrange postage.
Hi, Im new to this forum but not biking. Im just back from 2 weeks biking around Mozambique and South Africa. My mate brought me a 1988 XVR650 for the trip. Its in good original shape with about 60,000 kms on the clock. He wants US 1500$ for it. I understand they are fairly rare so is it worth...
Anyone interested in a 1999 xl600v front wheel hub twin disc, open to offers.
The hub is in great shape no broken spoke mounts or stripped threads on disc mount bearings only 500 mile just over a year.
I've just returned from a trip to the Alps and my chain has stretched a lot to the point it now needs replacing.
I've kept it in pretty good shape since I got the bike in Feb and think it's the bike's second chain (despite only having 7k on the bike when I got it). I assume the stock chain...
Anyone know of any companies that make larger fuel tanks for an xl1000v? Carb model.
I've switched over to the varadero from an r1150gs adventure and I like the long range between refuels.
I've looked into modifying the tank by altering it's shape but they look rubbish afterwards.
Can anyone in any way shape or form tell me why anyone would drill these four holes in the forks.
There are two per slider, at the top. Look through the piccies, you'll see them, I can't work it out.
Hi guys, gauging interest in my DR 350 (I'm pretty sure its a SEW elec shock only) it just isn't getting used (once a month maybe?) and seems a waste.
It is a tidy and unmolested S reg with under 7K miles on the clock (can dig out all the proper details if folks are interested) I also have a big...
The carbs are now out of the carbs. They will be degreased, cleaned up, covers will be zinc plated, and carbs will be rebuilt.
I popped the covers and found the rubber diaphragms to be ain good shape. No tear or crack. Nonetheless, I wonder what's the purpose of the pistons and diaphragm. What...
If I have a complete XR600 and want to build this up on a NX650 chassi, will it fit?
The reason for asking is that vI have a road legal NX 650 chassi and a non road legal complete XR 600R.
The NX is in bad shape and will cost a lot to repair.
I'm looking for a new/old radiator for my africa twin, unfortunately i cracked mine in some off-roading action (some goon took us down a lane and it progressed into 1-2ft ruts resulting in a bash and coolant going everywhere :( )
if anyone knows of any going that are in good shape id be...
does anyone know which tank bag (magnetic or otherwise) fits the shape of a dominator tank. would a universal one fit ok? nothing fancy or expensive. just for extra storage for small items on a trip. thanks
so, yesterday evening I managed to crash my RD04 on the road and now it is quite in a bad shape :D. I myself got away with one broken bone only which is ok I guess.
what do you guys think I should do with it.
Repair is out of question because I'll be a father in december and I can...
