  1. Dominator / FMX
    I bought a XR650R (thicker) 15T front sprocket, then I found out that on my FMX front sprocket is 14T. Which is original? 14T or 15T? BTW I found on the INTERNET that people are fitting XR650R front sprocket on XR650L to prevent it from cutting into sprocket splines. Please note that XR650L and...

    Does the '88 NX650 I just bought share many -- or any -- parts with other models like the XL600 or XR650L?

    Does anyone have a wiring loom from a XR650L for sale? Condition not important as it will likely be modified anyway so the cheaper the better, I'm just looking for a decent starting point.

    I'm hoping to build a special dominator motor with a high compression piston - say 10.5:1 No problem I thought, as Wiseco do them for the XR650L - which is the same as the Dominator right? Does anyone know 100% for sure if this is true of all XR650L motors because the Wiseco catalogue does not...

    Hey chaps, I've just obtained an XR650L oil pump (15100-MY6-670) I understood this to be a worthwhile upgrade from the standard NX5650 oil pump But it doesn't seem to fit. Help! Update: It does fit following some minor mods outlined later on in this thread.

    Hi to all, I would like to ask what the recommended valve clearances for FMX 650 are. My net research gave me two outcomes: (1) 0.10 (intake) and 0.12 (exhaust) +-0.02 (like in XR650L, Dominator etc) , and (2) 0.10 +-0.02 for both intake and exhaust valves (see here...

    Hi All, I've just recently aquired an 93' XR650L and it didn't run well initially. Symptoms where popping once in a while while driving, but also when standing still, dropping gas to idle, it ran for around 15 secs and then one pop in the exhaust and boom stop :-) I reckoned it was running to...

    Anyone got a spare flywheel with the ring gear etc that they want to sell ? It's for my fmx but dominator or xr650l will fit too, so I'm lead to believe. Cheers

    Hi all. Just picked up a FMX 650 that’s had a replacement engine. It came with the old engine that’s got a shagged piston but apart from that it’s in good shape. I’m looking to buy a new piston and rebuild the old engine. My question is can I use the same diameter 100mm piston from the XR650L...

    Morning All, Has anyone had a go at fitting just a top yoke from any of the Honda family? I'm wondering if an XR600 or an XR650L may fit the dommi? I know the ignition switch could be an issue but its more does it fit the forks and stem ok? Reason I ask is I am trying to find a yoke with...
  14. Transalp
    Hi, I'm looking to replace the amber lens on my 1992 Transalp for clear or smoke glass. I found these but it says it fits only models up to 1990. Is there really a difference pre/post 1990? I thought they were the same until 1993.

    Hello. I have being lately doing some maintenance to my dominator and in this opportunity is time for the oil filter. I was browsing online that there are some washable oil filter, basically a oil filter that you could clean and reuse like the k&n air filter, made from stainless steel...

    Hi Guys, I think I am going to check my valve clearances tomorrow. No real reason, bike seems to be fine as is but think I should check them. Not been done since I have owned the bike. So what do I need? I have new o-rings for the big nut cover things and a socket which fits a...

    Hello there. I am new to this site as a member however have been flicking through this site on and off over recent years. I am in the market for a new bike but torn and don't really mind either an Africa twin or a thumper XR650L. I'm not sure what I would prefer of the two and yes well aware...

    I've bought a few of these now and have been bringing them back to 'better than new' standard. They're such a rare bike here and such a bloody fantastic bike too. Why we never got them here is a mystery. They're still produced and sell well in USA, Aus and South Africa. Unchanged since 1993...

    One I knocked up earlier in the year. This was my own bike so kind of just played around with it making it how I liked myself. Not scared to crash it either. It came off roading with me a few times. I had a Hagon with stiffer springs so it handled quite well. I've done a couple of XR650L's...
