Only ridden it about an hour.
Power is GREAT, surprisingly good handling and suspension (a bit soft tho) or an old bike. Front brakes don't do anything (I think the pads are contaminated-new ones coming) rear is fine.
Was down on compression ( 90ish psi despite supposedly having a recent rebuild) so I've pulled it down to bore, replace the piston, and do the mains and a rod kit.
Trying Wossner stuff (piston and rod) which I've never used before.
Actually a 2009 model. Not a bad machine. Bad bits; radiators are easy to damage, even with 'gaurds'. Suspension is pretty average, stock. Suspension linkage needs greasing more than average due to a bad seal design. A bit heavy, and not real nimble.
Good bits; Tons of power, easy to work on. E-start (plus kick)
I don't mean to make it sound bad, it's a pretty decent bike, a few small mods and some different tires (pirelli's instead of michelin) and it's starting to work well now. I'm happy with it.
With gold valves fitted front and rear, cutting the bars down a bit and setting the front springs a couple of grooves softer, it's turning much better now and doesn't feel quite so big and clumsy.
Just need to sort the rider out now 🙄
Pretty good bike, can hold it's own against most of the newer stuff, on the track anyway.
This thing has a fair few mods, but it's too hard to add them all to the mods section.
Full Micron serpent exhaust, Bmc filter, power commander, Penske shock, custom fork valving, larger brake disks, H*nda calipers, brembo master, carbon gaurds, 520 chain, lithium battery, rearsets, oh....and some new bodywork (no pics yet)after a little mishap at the track.
