    Hi all, Some of you might have a vague memory of a post I put up over 2 years ago entitled; "I Was Sold A Lemon" Long story short, the engine in my 'new to me' 1991 RD04 had an oil leak, was discovered the sump had a crack which was filled, dealer bought me a replacement engine, I had it...

    For the last three years I have come in by bike and essentially parked in the same spot. Each day I ride past a bike in the car park which is completely covered. Only a slight gold wheel exposed. Today I noticed the bike had been moved slightly with more of the front wheel exposed as well as the...

    I have been running mine, testing etc, with out any fairing or sump guard and I like it Bike still gets amazingly hot and I can feel more heat on my legs than before I am hoping that's due to more airflow wafting around the engine I am thinking a simple nose cone cowl only would be ample for...

    Hi guys I went riding on sunday, only for an hour or so, and this was after I had been out for a similar amount only a couple of weeks earlier. Before I went out a couple of weeks ago, I checked my oil level and it was great, so didn't think to check it this week. (I've had the bike 3.5 years...

  8. Dominator / FMX
    So here's my build to throw into the pot. Are there any original dominators left?! :p Wanted to go down the scrambler route rather than the street tracker look, as wanted it to be able to cope with some off roading. Have therefore made up a tray in the subframe which will house most of the...

  10. Africa Twin
    As the title states, is there a chance to adapt the different bits in/around the carburetors from a later model Africa Twin (RD07/a, which are noticeably less thirsty) to an earlier RD03, in order to make it a bit more fuel efficient? I'm not fully aware of their design/layout differences, so...

    Good day fellas. Sitting here in Chile waiting for the bike and even with the dramatic increase of beautiful women around me I can't help but also think about the carbs. Turns out they are to blame for the horrendous fuel consumption and poor first gear performance. I've found rebuild kits...

    Hi, my TA650 (80000km on the clock) has high oil consumption on the higway. When I returned from France (1500km, at 120km/h, 3 panniers) it used 0,7l. It seems a lot to me. My theory is too high oil temperature. It was really hot (engine case), compare to brothers Tiger 1050...So I am...
  14. Varadero
    Hello, it seems that using a KN it reduces the fuel consumption a bit. Can you tell me if worth it ? best price I found is a pipercross..., are they good?

    Hi mates, its true the blue ones are faster :-) , but Im planing to change the rear sprocket to a 42 tooth for better fuel consumption on my 2002 Dero. Anyone has experience with this setup (16/42) for regular and touring ride? cheers

    Hi All, I fiilled up with fuel the other night, and immediately fuel started coming out of one of the draining pipes at the bottom of the bike. Thought initially it was a stuck float in the carb, but it turns out the drain pipe (for when you overfill the tank) that runs from the tank cap...

    Oil consumption on my Honda Dominator Hello there folks! Great forum you've got here. Newbie here, Joško from Croatia and i have a question about my 1998. rd 08 Dommie. Recently i've changed the oil after the 3000 km interval and it really struck me to find that i've only draind 0.9l of...

    My girlfriend an me rode around the world with two XL700VA. Honda does not sponsor us or even give us a discount on anything. Thereby this is completey honest: these bikes are undestroyable and they can suffer a lot. We rode 183,475 Km (app. 110k miles) and we had nearly no problems except...
