    Dominator / FMX
    Hi everyone. I have a 96 Dommie that I use for all sorts of travel on and off road. I noticed recently that the bars are moving more in the rubber mounts. Can the rubbers be removed and replaced? I tried tightening the nuts under the top yoke but still they seem to wobble more than before. I...

  4. 1980 xr500 with only 560km on the clock.

  7. Is the Dommie engine the same as an XR?

    Dominator / FMX
    Is the Dommie engine the same as the XR 650 engine? I seem to remember my XR being much more powerful than the Dommie I have now. Although I rode the XR500 back in the 80's and my Dommie is a 97 model (Import). I love the Dommie engine but just want a tad more grunt. I want it to lift the front...

I want a smaller tank (XT500, XR500-ish..), but I'm not really looking for a tank that will require a lot of work to make it...

  14. Monkey bikes for commuting... (xr50 sort of)

    Hello, I have just decreased my commute from 90 round miles to 16 and was looking at these Monkey bikes as a fun release/sunny day commuter. I know this is probably the wrong section to post under, but the Honda Z50 has a sister bike the Xr50... so it was as close as damn it... I have been...
