This one came up locally and thought it would be good to compare this with my 1000

Needed a few bits and pieces sorting, but overall was in very good condition for the year

Had it less that 6 months and covered around 700 miles and I have to say I really like the relaxed feel and handling of these machines, at ease on the big roads and with great suspension for those bumpy back roads

Gone is the noisy dry clutch from the 1000 and not having that noise to deal with all the time is a real bonus. Feels like it has more punch than the 1000, but apart from that just about everything else is the same.

Timing Belts hadn't been changed for some years, so first task was to sort that using ExactFit parts

Oil lines were corroded on the outside, replaced these with new items and also fitted new Oil filter, Oil Sensor and new Oil

Tickover was, and still is, a bit low at times and feels this happens more when fuel is getting low - have recently fitted a Booster to see if that assists, but if not will look into adjusting the TPS

New EBC pads front and rear, plus new fluid

Fitted a centre stand, but it sits way too low so will need to review that incoming weeks

Will look to replace the lower exhaust pipes and tidy up that collection box at the rear as dont like to look of it
