Hi Swiss,

I don't rightly know !

they are on fleabay for between roughly 1 - 2.5K, I cant see anyone paying anywhere near 2.5K for even a mint one.

I figured ballpark 1500 RollEyes

Hi All,

Been out for a proper ride today - quite impressed, obviously dosn't have the power of a bigger bike when once yuo get the revs up it goes ok and handles really well.

Only issue is i found the front shocks way underdamped, thought this might be the case as the springs were right on the service limit. Not planning on doing anything about this until I build the NC30 forks - watching a set of NC29 springs on ebay so hopefully this will resolve.

think I'll keep this for the winter !

Good to hear you've been down to check out your stable Thumbs Up

I guess even though half decent weather is months away, the new year renews thoughts of what can and will be done between now and then.

Well.....

DEcided I quite like this little bike, but don't like how it sounds ..... far toooo quiet.

First step - find out what it sounds like with zero silencing - remove silencer - answer - luvly Grin

Plan on using the crap silencers i bought for the SP1 to make a stubby can

emailed a few exhaust parts companies to try & get a front union which mates with linkpipe ( 3 bolt fixing ) but smaller than 893 fitting.

With no silencing it sounds roughly comparable with 929 (akra end can) so hoping even I can lash something together which will be roughly ok'ish for the road

Got eyes on a standard can on ebay so if i can get that i would have no hesitation ripping my standard silencer apart for the only bits i need 2 resuse, ( front & rear plates )

SPal Cool

Had another little play today with silencer.

These oval ones were got for the SP1 but not used.

index.php?t=getfile&id=19804&private=0

Sounds far better thanstandard can, even with large blow from joint. Trying to sort out how to adapt front plate to fit to downpipe, could cut flange off downpipe and slide silencer over then clamp but don't really want to remove flange unlesss last resort.
