  2. K & N Filter?

    Dominator / FMX
    Hi All, 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.

  3. Piston replacement

    Dominator / FMX
    Hi all. 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.

Never done repairs on this stuff...

  9. 700 TA Chain Under Load

    Transalp
    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...
  10. Larger capacity fuel tank

    Varadero
    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. Cheers in...
