another update

mot passed after replacing the front tyre

so next step was to remove both side fairings and fit the stainless steel race manifold (along with new exhaust gaskets and stainless steel manifold bolts (one for you dan! ha!)






titanium pipe fitted

Wooden or not enough stopping power?
Has you set up your suspension for you or is it as you bought it?
Nice exhaust. Cool

its a bit of both to be honest - it stops ok but they dont really start stopping until i'm half way down the lever i have bled them loads i think they are just rubbish!

so today i ordered a set of EBC HH sintered so should all be well again! Smile

suspension isnt set up and to be honest i'm not great at stuff like that - theres loads of knobs / dials and adjustments i just get confused by it all!! ha!

Looks great Matty, are you actually riding this in all the rain?
The R1 hasn't been out since our little trip.

The VFR goes out every week in rain or shine but the R1 is being preserved for good days. We just don't seem to be getting any good days when I am free to ride.
