    Hi Guys, so yesterday I rode the Dominator to work for the first time since the bike has been in bits and put back together. I'm not sure the vacuum pipes etc are correctly configured and wondered if anyone can help. All photos are pre strip down and they themselves may or may not show the...

    Hi all, Could anyone please tell me if a Honda xl650v seat, year 2006 will fit on a Honda xl650v year 2001. I have been offered one to buy but just want to make sure it will fit, looking at the photos he has supplied the plastic lugs under the seat look identical. Cheers, Spudy

    The paint code under the seat is B142H which I believe is Pearl Atlantis Blue. Trouble is I want the darker paint on top is this the same just applied thicker to darken it or is it different?? Same as this

I recently bought a hagon monoshock with the optional preload adjustor unit. the problem I have now, is that there is about a foot of hydraulic hose with a big metal adjuster on the end. i have no clue as to where to mount it using the supplied bracket. I've...

    Im Looking for some ideas on where to house all the electrics on my Dommie. I like the idea of manufacturing a tray under the seat, but was curious how everyone else does it. Ive seen some with small batteries lying on their side? i take it you need a seeled unit for this? Any help/guidance...

    I am currently drafting auxiliary aluminum fuel tanks for my RD07. On the left side, the mosfet regulator can easily be moved inside the toolbox under the seat. What about the coolant reservoir? Has anyone found a different location? It can't be moved to where the RD03 coolant tank sits because...

    Last July the AT let me down a mile and a half from home. I rode to the local BP for a pastie, and then the bike wouldn’t start. Nothing. The AA man turned up in due course and to his credit he figured out what I already suspected, which was that the Meta immobiliser had ‘immobilised’ me. Not...

    PHOTOS NOW PROPERLY UPLOADED :) I have finally fitted the Fuzeblock 6 way fuse box. With the seat off there is an obvious spot to locate the Fuzeblock but the lug that locates the front of the seat passes over and close to the centre of the space. After some trial and error a location slightly...

    Hi All I am fitting a phone holder to my Dommie (1996 RD08). When I came to wire it in I found the pictured wire and connector under the seat above the battery. It has the same type of plug as my phone charger and would be an ideal plug in point if it is a switched connector. It is hard wired...

    Any one been fiddling yet I went out this morning for a run but froze so came back early and decided to adjust a few things. first was the throttle free play there's far too much for my liking the two demonstrators were the same that was an easy adjustment, the gear lever was a bit low another...

    So there's a rattly noise. It sounded like there was something in the exhaust expansion chamber - like a catylytic converter or something - the rattle had always been there but off and on and no real pattern to it Maybe it's the cold weather but now it's there and bothering me every ride. It...

    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...

    Finally got round to fitting things I bought ages ago First off tool tubes making sure they didn't interfere with my Givi panniers Then the Mosfet RegRec (don't know why this has rotated all the others are fine!) And a Loobman bought this week Not shown is a Fuzeblock but it's there in...

    G'day Playmates, Has any Transalper here ever carried a heavy-bike-locking-security-chain in the TA's capacious storage compartment under the seat ... and if so, what were the results, if any, of surpassing the weight limited of 2'ish Kgs that Mr.Honda's sticker states is the maximum permitted ?

    Hi, I am aware that pod filters usually are banned on forums :), but I am currently rebuilding the bike and would like to clear up the area under the seat for design reasons. Anyone have any experience of removing the airbox and add two pod filters directly connected to the stock carbs on a...

    Afternoon All, It would appear one of my CDI units has failed I've managed to get it working for now with the use of many zip ties :p but I don't think it will be long before it packs in again. I also seem to be missing the holder and they were just floating around under the seat wrapped in...

    I found under the seat of a fireblade I bought some years ago a scott oiler . i gave the chain a good oil with gear oil then decided it was a lovely mild day for a spin 2 miles later the sky was as black as the night and it pissed down heavy as it could for 120 km's the chain was bone dry after...

    I find myself in the middle of an electrical nightmare and I am not sure about what to do to fix it. I decided to have a go at wiring up my dommie project and I am way out of my comfort zone. Starting at the rear of the bike I have done the battery, solenoid and voltage regulator which was just...
