    I think the metallic green might look really good!

    Ever since I had bought my dominator I have been mostly just working on it and servicing it.
    One if the main problems of running was constant cutting out at idle and a huge flatspot at 2000-3000rpm.
    As my exhausts had many holes in them I thought it was lack of back pressure.
    After replacing the exhaust the problems still persisted. :huh

    I had planned cleaning the carb as the next step, seriously you have to take most of the bike apart just to get at the carb!
    The carb actually was very clean itself but the accelerator pump was seized solid.:eek1

    After the accelerator pump put up a fight I managed to free it, clean it and lube it until the action was perfect.
    Took her for a test drive and she drives perfectly! :freaky
    I forgot to take pics of the carb so here is a pic of disassembly!

    Once you loosen the carb, you can take it out the left side with some judicious wiggling.
    What was the jetting in the carb?

    148 main jet.
    It was more that the pump was stuck seized open!
    The pilot was set at 3.5 but I put it back to 3 stock.
    It's running a k&n.

    I don't know a huge amount about carbs, I have cleaned a good few but generally run them standard.
    Seems like its all sorted bounder, no flat spots and a power increase for a €10 can of carb cleaner!
    I'll take that any day.:D

    I just recovered my seat, and made a new passenger strap. But the metal fittings on the end of my old passenger strap were rusted and falling apart, so I couldn't use them on the new one. What can I use? I think if I just put holes in the new strap, they'll pull through and rip it apart.

    Heres a pic of what I'm looking for, I circled it in red. I have the bolt, just not the metal that helps hold the strap.

    Find an upholstery place and have them pop in a grommet.

    Got a little problem, swapped my engine with a other one on my Domi,
    But now when he is warm.

    He is working idle, then sometimes he misses 1stroke sometimes the engine even turn off....


    Also when i'm riding and stopping at an intersection he switches off, The carb is from the other engine and was working fine, even as the elektronics.

    Should it be carb setting's ????:huh

    Bst regards:ear

    Sounds like it is. The different Domis had different carb settings and jets. And the symptoms you are describing sound very much like air leaking, make sure that especially the carb insulator is without cracks.

    And I take it that the swapped engine is also from a Domi, one from a SLR650 or FMX650 will not work because of different pulser bosses :D

    Do you really want that strap?
    The Euro models never had it, they had a rack instead.
    I took mine off, made it much better looking IMO.
    Mine is arouund somewhere, if you really want it and I can find it you can pay the postage and I'll send it to you.

    That would be great! The postage shouldn't be too much, since its just a strap. I'd like to keep it on there since my gf uses it to hold on to sometimes, and it makes a nice handle for moving the bike around in the garage. Let me first check at an upholstery place, to see what they would have. They're kinda expensive, but they should have something that will work.

    A canvas shop - any place that makes awnings or does boat covers would have the equipment to install a brass or stainless grommet. Check with "tack" shops (places that work with leather, saddles, bridles or other horse stuff).

    There's a tack place that I go to locally. They have done everything from replace zippers in Cordura riding jackets, replace velcro on leather riding boots, make some quick disconnect buckle straps for soft saddle bags on my dual sport bikes. These places usually have some old-timers working there who are amazed to hear about knuckle-heads like us who ride off into the woods for days and days. Good folk.

    No matter which way you go...it's likely to be cheaper than internation shipping from Europe.

    I have an '88, where can I find a rear sprocket, and which brand front 650R is best? What other Hondas cross over to the rear? Thanks.

    XL600R XR600, XR600R all fit the same front sprocket.
    XR600R rear is the same.

    I got mine from JT sprockets - they had both the front and rear in varying sizes. I dropped 2 teeth in the back, from the stock 45t to a 43t. Off-road its not as good, but on the highway its a great improvement. I might go back to the stock 45t when it needs to be changed though.

    Hi all! I have a 1994 Domi, red/black, and I only have the colour code for the black parts, not the red. It's similar to the bike in this post: http://advrider.com/forums/showpost.php?p=20160603&postcount=2563. The black colour is NH-217M, the red colour is not R-201...

    Can anyone help? I have checked all the plastic parts, but cannot find any colour codes.... I have found some replacements pieces that needs paint...

    I've searched cmsnl.com, and for the earlier years they don't even have complete sets of plastic in one color. I'm pretty much resigned to the fact that anytime you buy fairings and body panels, you're probably going to have to paint them. I believe color rite makes the paint. They have most colors.
