Thanks pal!! I'm trying to stay calm and patient but i'm really struggling to find bits for the dommie in good condition!!!

Well, here's brief update on things:

The cam + head was taken off yesterday, and here's the extent of the wear
nx650 head
The cam lobes= notice the scoring in the middle
nx650 pushrods
the pushrods
nx650 pushrods
The valves (crunchy, but ok)
nx650 head

Overall i've been told that the head + cam + pushrods need re-doing/changing. I don't actually know if these can be machined but i hope this is the case.....i'd really like to keep the engine original and get it going again, since the rest of that motor is good..
On another note i don't know what i'll be riding to budapest next week

Sorry Bounder only got a chance to measure the shock today.

It's 13.5 inch or approx 34cm (measures in the bike on a trailey stand.)
Showa my2601 is written on it.

In interested in the xl shock if it fits.
Thanks, John.

The cam and ROCKERS are shot. Easy to find.

And NO you won't be riding your Domi next week.

Identify this?

Hi guys, long time lurker, first time poster.

I'm in Tanzania, looking for a bike (just sold my XL250), and a guy said he had a Dominator for sale and sent me this pic:


What do you make of it? It looks like a Domi engine/frame, but all the fairing's gone, front guard, and I'm not sure what's going on with the exhaust. Any ideas? Looks closer to an XR650L, but the plastics are all wrong, and I'm pretty sure it's a Domi frame. The seat colour makes me want to puke....

Cheers.
(looking forward to getting back into riding here.... so many good rides!!)

Thats an RD02 Dommie with no fairing and a trail headlight, and the sidecovers have been either made up or adapted from something else.
Rear guard looks standard and there is probably a single exhaust fitted.
Everything else looks standard, wheels and forks seat etc.

Thanks.

So, if the fairing is gone, does that mean the speedo etc is either gone or replaced? My guess is the bike went down and they had to replace a bunch of stuff and just used local parts. Is a single exhaust always an after market thing? Not sure why anyone here would replace the exhaust.

The stock clocks mount to the headlight, they may have just made a mount for them.
Generally aftermarket exhausts are single, they are much lighter than the twin stock exhausts

I'm ordering new brakes for the bike, but do not know the difference between metallic and non metallic pads. Can someone please explain the difference between these types? Which should I use for the NX?

Finally on the road!!

I have finally finished my Dominator in time for spring! My bike was in dire need of som TLC when I bought it, and thanks to this forum I was able to finish it in time and resolve quite a few issues along the way.

I have overhauled the brakes/put on rear rack/fixed (and painted) fairings and put new decals on/new tires/cleaned and adjusted carb/overhauled wheel bearings/new speedo gear/new rear side indicators/new inlet manifold and numerous small service items. Im happy to say that it now works excellent!

I have received good help and advice from you, and I hope I am able to give some back!

Again, thanks all!

An inmate here told me of Partzilla. Yes it was you dstriffler! Returning the favor.

http://www.partzilla.com/parts/detai...P-4114445.html

I have used the HH sintered and now have them on everything with two wheels.

I could not locate an oversized rotor until it was in your link. You are a path finder!

I was thinking about doing the oversize rotor also! I was just thinking that the gold would really look good with the Rothman's scheme

I'll buy the pads you suggested they look like the best. But the price is per individual pad? I've never heard of a place selling a single brake pad.
