New from Hampshire UK

Post  R056rx on Sat Nov 16, 2013 7:38 pm

Hi everyone!

After selling my trusty ZX7R at the beginning of the summer I've been toying with the idea of getting a XR to get some two wheel fun under the speed limit. After 12yrs of the 7R it was just becoming too tedious for me having to travel everywhere at warp speed just to get a grin on my face.

I've been keeping an eye out all summer and finally found exactly what I was looking for. 2002 BRP, 6000miles, 24L Acerbis tank, gel seat, screen extender, key'd ignition, 12v output, giant loop luggage, FMF Q4 tail pipe and FMF headers, plus a box full of spares and all the original parts.
The carburetion needs sorting out as its difficult to start and idle is all over the place. (The pilot screw was only 1/2 a turn out), but I'm looking forward to getting the spanners out again.

I've ridden it home and a few miles locally and it's an absolute blast. Such a lot of fun and all at under 50mph!
I live close to Salisbury Plain so a bit of tank dodging on the tracks is on the cards, and I quite fancy some overlanding to Morrocco.
