Looking good there Buddy, could probably make it round yours tomorrow afternoon if that's any good, or were you itching to get out first thing,

Thanks fellas really appreciate the comments I can assure you that it wasn't that clean when I got it but now she's running i can't wait to ride it tomorrow! First ride after buying a non runner is a daunting one but I'm sure she won't let me down .

It's funny I loved the black /gold colour scheme of my last one but everyone else likes this one more . Now I've gone over it i think it's the cleanest of the three I've had.

Well she did let me down   
Ran perfectly for the first 50 miles then had a little stutter which got worse and worse until it was bloody awful to ride no power just bogged down not right at all. Stripped it back down this afternoon everything seemed OK pulled the pump out to check the filter and it was absolutely minging so swapped it for the brand new one from the new pump the previous owner bought and put it all back together. Started no worries grabbed my lid and the heavens opened so scrapped the test ride will have to wait until tomorrow afternoon if I'm up in time before work again. Grrrr bloody thing! Kind of expected it but was really hoping it was OK more cave time ahead.

There's always a few things that go wrong with a "new" to you bike.

It's the bike's way of getting to know you on more intimate terms LOL

Really made up for you, the bike looks stonking Thumbs Up

Haha yeah your right there Rick. We're friends again today went out before work only had time for 50 miles but they were on the brisk side and she was faultless the whole way absolutely loved it. Either I didn't get her warm enough for the problem to reappear or the new fuel filter I fitted yesterday sorted it. More miles planned for next week with a few mates so fingers crossed of all is well we'll get that EA meet up sorted.

Cheers mate me too. It was a ridiculous price for what I've got so I can't grumble at a few little niggles. She ( this one's definitely female after Fridays hissy fit) was flying today and I was seriously impressed by the tyres and set up you can tell Griff or lewis has had his hands on it for sure and the 180 rear certainly helps the turn in. Only thing I noticed was the brakes ain't quite as good as my last one but that had accosato mc's same as you they really do make a difference.

Glad she is all sorted and over her hump now bud ...im so chuffed that it was just a niggle , awesome stuff.

What pads have you got in this one Ad? An Accossato will undoubtedly make a massive difference,as you already know, but a nice new set of SBS race sinter will make a huge difference as well, just put a set in the Kwack and they've improved it no end.
