  3. Advice needed on new Transalp wheels

    So my trusty 700 Transalp was recently in at the dealers having a small fortune spent on it - actually I think the dealers are very good, but it still makes me wince. Anyway, they pointed out to me the dreaded cracking of the wheel rims where the stainless spokes meet the ally rims. It's ok...
  4. New SD01 Owner in South Australia

    Finally got my first decent ride on this new acquired bike today. :D After a little suspension and carby tuning, I think I'm going to like it! My main concern is how much the fairing rattles and moves about on rougher tracks. Not sure what I can do about it, though. It came with lots of...

  7. re-jetting on the bike.

    Dominator / FMX
    Quick question. Has anyone ever re-jetted their bike while the carb is still on the bike? I've got a adjustable Super trap exhaust on my Dommie and I know I can tune to match the carb with that, but I've found a setting that I love the sound of. Not too loud but enough of barrrrrp. So I...
  8. Gunson Colortune

    Africa Twin
    Has anyone used one of these with any success? I'd like to set my @ and CBR1000F as close to perfect as possible. I thought this might be easier than the turn it a bit and listen for the rise and fall, especially on the 4 cylinder jobbie

  11. For Sale: Having a clearout... XR Acerbis tank, Rox risers, Renthal bars, Baja 250 project!

    For Sale / Wanted
    So it would turn out that preparing an RD07A for use in rallying is both a drain on time and funds! That and when im not working on the thing i'm riding the wheels off it working on my own skills. So as a result of that (and the fact that we really need the space) i'm having a clear out... And...
  12. Carb tuning

    I am about to try and tune my flatside carb when I get my bike started :D:D:D I used one of these on an old Z650 I had alongside a balancer guage I have. Do you reckon this will work on my Keihin FCR flatside that I want on my Dommie. I know these days we have gone digital with Co2 but I love...

  15. 1 Wire O2 Sensor

    Dominator / FMX
    Getting all technical now. Has anybody played with a 1 wire O2 sensor? I've read about tuning houses putting a sensor into the downpipe of a carburated engine to help tune the carburettor (I think it was mentioned in the thread on this forum about a Mikuni flatslide). I was wondering about...
