  2. Dominator / FMX
    Since changing the CDI my Dominator starts fine first thing in the morning, garaged over night, after work though she is a pig to start. Again garaged all day in a public car park. Messing about with different amounts of choke the bike backfires bad and then eventually starts. The only other...

  4. Transalp
    WOW!!! What a trip! So far i've done just 1434 miles from home in north Wales down to Calella near Barcelona in Spain. And what roads!!! (well apart from the motorways of course) They've been fantastic! They twist, they turn, they bend, they run straight and all the time the views have been...
  5. Dominator / FMX
    Oh dear, I have a rear puncture. Didn't discover this until I set off on my early morning commute at 05:15. When I first pulled the bike out of the garage I thought the brakes were sticking a bit. Normally they are fine but should have checked further before riding off and snaking down the road...
  6. Dominator / FMX
    Hopefully tomorrow my new rear shock arrives. I started to get the bike ready tonight and have some questions. I removed the airbox, I'm no longer an airbox virgin but what a pain in the arse that is. I have always read how bad it is and yep it was bad. It didn't help I couldn't remove the...
  7. Dominator / FMX
    With out putting to much though into it, I bought a pair of stainless steel?? down pipes off of eBay for my 2000 Dommie, had a very quick play with them tonight and I think they might be for a different model..?? Are there more than one combination for our NX650s...?? also they are supposed to...
  8. Dominator / FMX
    Guys, as you may recall I am a slow and steady rider, I still cant get round bends at a good speed or with much confidence but working on it. Tonight though on the way home there was diesel, or what I assume to be diesel over two lanes of the road (my direction of travel) which caused my nerves...

  10. Dominator / FMX
    Hi Guys, I'mm sure this has been done to death but.... So I started the bike in the car park tonight, it started as per normal and when I revved it the bike cut out. Maybe had to much choke, maybe a number of reasons. Thing is the bike wouldn't start again, I kept trying and in my...

  15. Transalp
    Hi I had the revs go this morning and power drop - previous owner had bought a spare cdi but hadn't installed it and stupid me - I've left it at home. I have noted that the threads I read on this issue seem to discuss the CDIs being under the seat - mine are in the battery box on the left hand...

  19. Africa Twin
    For the third time in 2 years my @ stopped tonight. Each time the symptoms are the same. Gradual loss of power then bike stalls and coasts to a halt. Left for varying amounts of time it then starts and runs again. For each occasion these were: 1st - couple of minutes after switching it on to...
