Here she is, I'm buzzing with it :)


30k miles, full service history and very clean no marks at all. Cost me 2150 and I think it's cheap at that!

Taking the family out as I spent all day moaning about getting it, then getting it :x

I don't understand. :scratch:


Looks good! I hope you have many funs on it.


What's that thing you've stuck on the front? It kinda looks like it's cocking an eyebrow.

Ive moaned at the missus half the day about getting a bike. Then spent the other half doing so, she has given me firm instructions that tomorrow os a family day :mrgreen:


Apparently it's a go pro mount, I wont be removing it as I'll probably cause some damage!

forgiveness is easier to obtain than permissions.. do it!


Smart looking bike - very clean and great price!... the go pro mount is only in one of the photos!

Right, so what mods are you planning to make??


Tailtidy, led indicators, single seat, remove rear pegs, new levers. Thats the first things I would do, then new exhaust when finances allow.

Nice bike Beefy ,is it the carbed or injected one :thumb:

 

Injection :).


I did want to ask, am I going to have problems if I ride it whilst it's on auto choke? As I don't fancy sitting warming it up pissing all the neighbours off. Its loud without a new can right now :lol:.

In my opinion the injection is definitely the better one, has someone taken the baffle out :wink:

No. just start the engine and ride away. warming up is a thing of the past for you now... totally unnecessary. in fact.. the quicker you ride away the sooner the bike hits its ideal temperature and fuel consumption becomes 'normal'... and if the bike has a CAT.. it starts to work as it should,

Just get on and ride there is no need to "warm" a bike up :thumb:

Cheers! The fella who sold it said it can be a bit jerky whilst it's idling a little higher on the choke so to wait for it to come down.


And nope baffle is in, it appears to be a permanent fixture as I was going to take it out :lol:.
