Service info for domi

Hello Everyone,

Have just bought a 2000 V-reg Dominator for a trip to australia next year, can't seem to get a service manual have tried to download from honda site but keeps failing, can someone let me know the basic things to look out for in a service when i am doing it myself.

I have read about an oil strainer in the downtube that needs cleaning from time to time but i can't see it on my bike so it might be for an earlier model.

Anyway, thanks in advance for any help or advice.

Cheers, Nigel.

Hi Adrian,

I took a look at that site, it's got a manual for 88-89 domi but i dont think that will do for the 2000 bike but i will try it and see, i might get lucky.

I living out the ardacrusha road near parteen, how long since you were in ireland?

Cheers, Nigel.

Hi Nigel,

I had a 1997 Dommie and did 16,000 miles on it, all trouble free. From what I can recall the oil strainer is at the bottom of the downtube and will become obvious when you remove the drain plug to change the oil (there's another drain plug I think on the left hand side/underneath the engine ).

The engine is very reliable and easy to service, tappets every 4,000m, engine oil and filter every 2 to 4,000m depending on how hard the engine is being used, air filter when you think it needs it.

You might want to think about changing the rear shock , especially if you plan to carry luggage as they are very softly sprung; apart from this do the usual bike preparation and off you go!!! I ran Continental TKC 80's, a good all round tyre and you should see 6,000miles from the rear and atleast double that from the front.

Kev

oil temperatuur yes
oil pressure no
i think the pressure sensor should be connected to the primarie oil line, wich means drilling in the oil filter cap or heving a special thing that extends the output to the head.
i see no use in it, the bike is not worth the investment.
