Bought while under the afluence of a few pints…Need to find the missing bits somewhere (almost impossible here in Spain) but that apart it seems to be sort of OK…Not the first time Ive taken a stray dog home from the pub:) In my defense , it was only 100 quid…
Great buy, I used to have one and really liked it. Of the old-school bikes it’s one of those that’s aged well. Best bit is the engine, lots of torque for a 600 + it’s short geared so starts in 2nd even 3rd gear. Later models with ram air get 100bhp, not bad for a 20 year old design.
Bad bits suspension and brakes (couldn’t fix the spongy fronts), and I suspect you’ll really need to have a look at that (can’t see no calipers!).
Depending on what use you intend to do I wouldn’t bother with getting the full fairing, it looks interesting without with some tiding up, unless you want to fully restore it.
£100?? :w00t: I sold mine for £1750 a couple of years ago…:hehe:
It is a Ramair…just took the plastic bits off for now. The calipers were in a state so took them off to strip them…fine now.I really want to put it back to original apart from paint which I will do in the orange and purple theme from the 1100.
have you checked all the carb bits & balanced them up and checked the vac pipes etc? yer when i got my 6 all i had to do was clean the carbs out and balanced them fit new vac pipes and plugs run sweet after that still i sold it…
Putting new plugs in today but found the down pipes were damaged when i took them off. They are being repaired todat…think they might have been causing back pressure, They are solid and better than they look,
I rebuilt the calipers thanks. Would be interested in buying any bits you have. You can see most of what I need…plastics, rear and side grab handles,front indicators etc etc
Previous owner had an off over a kerb I think,front wheel was gone , damage to the pipes and rear fairing mount plus the obvious bits. The pipes are OK really and this bike is just a bit of a time filler for me so want to spend as little as poss on it. local garage is fixing the pipes today for 15 quid…
