  1. Right-hand step holder (footrest hanger) removal - FX/SLR 650

    Dominator / FMX
    Does anyone have any experience removing the right-side footrest hanger from an FX650 (same parts - I think - as the SLR)? I'm trying to get the clutch cover off to check the strainer mesh in the oil pipe and the footrest hanger needs to come off first. I'm using the SLR manual as there isn't...

  7. ULEZ anyone?

    Dominator / FMX
    Have we noticed any affect on the value of pre 01/07/2007 bikes, especially in the South East? I had a plan to get a post July 2007 FMX (there are few around) and re-frame a Vigor into it, but in the end gave up and went with an August 2007 XT660R instead.

    Dominator / FMX
    Went to view a vigor today. Bloke had a couple for sale. Nice guy. And many others in bits in his garage. I particularly liked the one with lower miles. Blue, 1999, every accessory you could need. 6000 miles. We struck a fair deal but im slightly worried about the oil dripping from under the...
  10. SLR-FX-FMX Frame differences

    Dominator / FMX
    Does anybody know what differences (if any) there are between the SLR/FX and the FMX650 frames? I know the SLR and FX are identical because I've turned an SLR into an FX and vice versa. I'm interested in re-framing and older Vigor into an FMX650 to get a 2007 registration number. I can see the...

  13. Vigor or Veegor?

    Dominator / FMX
    Just out of interest. I've always pronounced it "Vigor", with a short "i" as in "pig". Just recently I've spoken to a couple of people who pronounced it "Veegor", with a long "e" as in "sheep". Then the other day one bloke said "Vygor" with a long "i" as in "wine" Any votes one way or the other?

  17. Impressed!!!!!!!!

    Dominator / FMX
    Got to say I'm smitten :) Just had my maiden run on my Vigor very impresed. A bit fluffy/hesitant under 2000rpm in traffic but feel it just needs a decent run out. 1500 miles in the last 5 yrs hasn't done it any good. Got a Givi top box, done a service,cleaned her up and thought I'd give her a...
