Hi everyone, newbie alert!

Post by purgeraptor »

Thanks for letting me join :thumbsup:

Bought this a few weeks back, and have been through it to sort a few issues.

Loving the light handling, and very good on smooth roads or at speed!

Thanks, yes without baffles, sounds great!
Those baffle circlips were hard to remove though....

Engine fuelling seems fine, although it had gutted standard cans when I bought it, so the previous owner may have up-jetted the carbs.

Its too loud for me (read neighbours) without the baffles the fuel injection in the 1000 takes care of the fueling.

The 1000 is probably louder than the 650 :)

I may try re-fitting the baffles sometime, just to see.
