Hi Folks from the UK

Post  Guest on Wed Nov 26, 2008 8:49 pm

Hi Folks, ACE, a whole forum to talk and look at BRPs with!

Mines an 2005 model, R5, and they come road-ready over here! Uncorked, but you get the air intake resistors, 35/35w main/dip headlamp, 2 rear lights, the little one and a big plastic plate with a full stop/tail lamp that also lights the number plate. We don't need a rear chain guard, as no pillion pegs are fitted, same with indicators as it meets the "competition bike for road use" specs, basically 300mm ground clearance and a 900mm+ seat height. We get the kmh clocks, some idiot lights and indicators fitted too, along with a keyed ignition and a steering lock in the headstock.

That said, indicators are the first thing I removed, including flasher unit and the non-loom wiring.

Done some "bolt on" mods, don't feel I need more power/torque yet! Would love it to start first kick after I've thrown it down, or rather when its gone its own way without me!! Other wise I love the kickstart - far too many dead batteries before!
