Most motorcycle problems are caused by the nut that connects the handlebars to the saddle.

first ride

Post by skyrider on Thu 23 Jun 2016, 7:39 pm

I took the old girl to preston docks this afternoon for its first ride and I found it very well balanced and the delkevic can sounded well without it being too loud

Yeah was baffle in? The Fuels are quite loud w/out - but it only really gets too much north of 7k. Up to 6k it's loud but a quite deep, 'twinny' sort of tone. Which I love btw.

this afternoon I had a look at putting the clutch cable back into its guide but I soon realised that with the previous owner having changed the original bars for renthals that they were a bit wider and it made the cable a bit on the short side so it didn't quite reach far enough from out of the crank case through the guide and up to the lever very close but no cigar, so I just had to put it back as it was with a cable tie, next time I get a new cable I will see if I can get a bit longer one, and this one will do for now Smile

These guys made mine. I think it was about £27. They make a lot of cables for guys with custom cruisers etc.
