  4. Side Stand Switch

    Dominator / FMX
    I have a spare red LED indicator on my motogadget, and was thinking of just using it as a side stand indicator. I don’t want it to effect engine, only light up as an indicator to let me know stand is still down. What are people thoughts on this?? Good idea? Or a bit pointless and get rid of...
  5. Dommie Carb Heater

    Dominator / FMX
    I’m looking at reducing wiring on my Dommie project, does the carb heater need to be connected? Also if I’m getting rid of side stand switch and clutch switch, and only using neutral switch for the led on dash, can I get rid of the diodes?

    My 2001 Dommie is really hard to start and dies really easy when idling. Almost like it misfires every 10th time or something like that.
