Jy moes maar eintlik n 400S gekoop het. Lower Comp motor met al die metaal in die regte plekke.

Los die Subframe en kry soft luggage.

124$ is cheap vir full set plastics.

The internet is you friend Etienne..... >:D....especially Thumpertalk....

Subframe - don't know.
Doesn't have a temp guage so don't know. No problems to date. Revs to 10k I think.
Carb will have FCR on it.
Agents very expensive - Acerbis kit the way to go. Import directly.
Yes.

What for?
If it does, the bike is running a bit lean - not a good thing

EDRZ... as far as I know... your bike made 35hp on the dyno and hyltons made 40hp. Your bikes are basically the same... I suggest you have it tuned. 5hp op daai bike is dag en nag verskil.

Yep, my dyno graph se 35hp. Dit het nou die quickshot en pyp by. Wil die head ens laat port by Andy en dan laat tune.
Wat kos so tune jobbie min of meer?

Beteken dit hulle moet nuwe jets insit? Of net aan dit stel?
