I'm coming around to the Kwacka now... firmed the forks up as much as I could and took it for a blast down my favourite road and , even with those bouncy forks and sports touring tyres, that thing can hustle.... I've not been down that road any quicker on my T so that's shocked me a bit...once the forks are sorted and the brakes are uprated a tiny bit and a set of stickies shoved on the Dymag's this thing is going to move good and proper

Im actually pretty gobsmacked at just how much ability this thing has, the previous owner has released a lot of it obviously, but I honestly didn't expect that today... it's gonna be a weapon 😎

I was when I bought mine and still am, as said before I didn't even consider these years ago and thought they were behind the times when they came out but how wrong was I.

And to service it you don't have to take any bodywork off and the suspension linkage is covered with grease nipples👍

Im thinking so Ad...in a way it's daft because the T will be so sorted once it's back , but the more I've done to it and the nicer it's gotten, the more reluctant I am to take it on track ... I'll still take it on the odd one but im thinking I'll get the zx tweaked and then that'll be my proper track toy and I won't be anywhere near as precious about it and I can have a proper go at upping my pace a bit. 😎

Hmmmmm..... that sounds interesting Hemi🤔... I think I'll end up going down that route (and sticking a daytime mot on it for the odd road thrash)... I'll keep yours in mind buddy , i'll get the forks and brakes sorted and then that'll be the last job. Cheers though fella🖒

How do the Dymags rate against your BST's for quality?


How do Rick.

After giving them a good clean today, as nice as they are, I have to say that,in my humble opinion, BST's are a better finished wheel than the Dymag's... They're good, there's just a few little areas, joins in the carbon etc, that make the BST's just look a more premium product ...so if it were me, choosing between the two, I'd choose the BST's...



Thanks very much buddy, that's a big help. One of the hardest decisions I've had in years. Every time I've made up my mind - Something comes along to change it. Shocked
Question everything.
