    Good on you. I would love to try one of those at some time, they do have appeal.

    That is a bonus indeed. Most folk don't buy that for just an exhaust (and air filter) so you may find it has more surprises in store. How hard is it to look at the cam?

    Looks better without the rack...



    I just hit an indicated 80mph down the by-pass, without even tucking in.

    The front disk feels a bit warped, I'll have a fiddle with the caliper see if it's the sliders sticking, if not the disk is pretty cheap (compared to a Japanese OEM one)

    It's even got a stepped seat to prevent the wind pressure blowing you backwards.

    Enjoy.

    Nice! (that's a relative term )- agree RE the guards and I'd have to lose the indicators too if it were mine, and change the seat.

    Reckon you'll have fun with it whatever you do

    I'll have you know, with the PC5, K&N and loud pipe it probably makes at least 32 bhp, 5 more than stock!

    Had a look at the new Royal Enfield twins a couple of months ago, nice looking bikes.
