    Them hologram stickers still mess with my eyes:eek: …. Cannibalised the rear hugger! Literally cut it in half and shaped to suit. Have never run a chainguard so it’s just more weight saved!…..looking forward to the gearing swap as the OE gearing is definitely way too long. The box of OE bolts mounts daily and weight wise is now just over 1kg…. That’s just nuts and bolts:D

    Looks like some good bonding and fettling time together there!

    Glad your enjoying it. I when I'm not working and it's not raining I'm spending my time riding it still.

    It’s definitely a mile munching Hoot! Another 80 miles of madness yesterday:D 16T front sprocket is so much more suitable than the 17T! As much torque it has 6th gear was pretty redundant, and the lower 3 are quite tall! Now it’s a perfect balance and way more suitable for even more sensible Hoonage:)
