  3. Handlebar height

    Dominator / FMX
    Does anyone have a solution to the handlebar height on the RDo2 ? I find mine very low and difficult to use especially when standing on the pegs, i have loosened them and pushed them up a little which is slightly better but causes the engine to race slightly on full lock so not ideal. I like the...

  5. Choke won't stay choked

    Dominator / FMX
    My Dommie's choke won't stay on, I pull in the lever for cold starts but then it just creeps open again from the vibes before the engine is warmed up. Does anyone know how to tighten it so it only closes when I want it to? The last vehicle I had with a manual choke was a 1971 Mini! The choke...

  9. Transalp 600 oil pressure boss crack

    Hi, I've just seen the boss which holds the oil pressure sensor has a crack, probably from over-tightening the sensor. I'm thinking of drilling a channel on the length of the crack, clean it and put some Al epoxy then some tiger seal at the end of the boss just as a sealant. I don't know...
  10. Is it possible to allow the RD07 to start clutch-in in-gear?

    Africa Twin
    Hi all, I would like the ability for the bike to start in-gear (with the clutch in). My 1998 VFR has this ability - I found it handy to be able to leave the bike in-gear with the engine off to hold on a hill when stopping momentarily, then to be able to re-start straight away by just pulling in...

  15. I have a problem with wind

    Dominator / FMX
    My Dommie lives on the street so it hides under an Oxford Stormex cover when not in use. At least three times in the last month the wind has got it and knocked the bike over. We live on a slight hill so the bike is always parked with the side stand side down hill but because it's quite a tall...
