Just thought I’d pop in and say hi.
Been an owner since June and this site has been a wealth of knowledge and has helped me in a few situations already. I would like to say thanks to everyone and their contribution on the site.
There are many more things I want to do to my new ride but just taking baby-steps hopefully with all you help past and present it will make this possible.
Cheers again guys and I’m sure I’ll be firing question out soon😁

Welcome to the Mob! Hopefully, you bought a decent bike that hadn't been abused or neglected?

Despite their relatively low profile, I reckon Raptors are much easier to live with than one of the previous designs by Mr Galluzi known by it's monsterous name, even though they look very similar. The Suzuki engines are a deal more civilised than the Ducati equivalents. Some might say they therefore lack some character, but character can be irksome on a bad day! :roll:

Keep in touch and let us know how you get on.

Hi Nick,
I was originally looking at the other mentioned bike before finding this one.
I’ve had experience with the Suzuki v-twin from my last bike an SV1000 so know the engine inside and out and was one of the factors that swayed it for me.
Like I said the bike is in really good condition Especially when you consider it’s 20years old.
Not sure if it was previously owned by a forum member but It has been looked after with a few mods, most are pluses. Like rear Nitron shock, front Matris carterages in the forks, Carbon can co cans and blanked off PAIR valves.
Others are more aesthetic. The seat plastics have been removed and the seat narrowed. The front light has been changed (wasn’t keen as first but it has warmed to me)
As the bike has been “changed” it gives me a bit of a license to alter things too. Another reason for joining the forum to try and extract as much knowledge as I can and trying to help out in return.
Cheers
Gav
