  2. Alloy wheels

    Dominator / FMX
    I would like to customise my FX650 and wonder if anyone has fitted alloy 3 spoke wheels [like those on a Suzuki GS500] to their Honda. If this is a doable how complex is it or is there an easy way of fitting wheels from another bike which need little modification. Any photos would be helpful.

  6. RD03 Backfiring on deceleration

    Africa Twin
    I've recently purchased an rd03 which is in nice condition (67000kms in theory!), but it backfires when off the throttle - not badly, more a tinkling pop pop with the odd loud crack.
