Hey up Andrew , ive had it firing on a bit of easy start now so just gonna clean tank out and fire her up on premix,
then i will clean out oil tank and prime pipes etc , maybe next winter i'll strip her and redo frame as its scruffy in
places but for now just a real good clean new tyres as what i believe are the original gold seals are cracked on sides
and bald on rear , then a new seat from Morretti Ltd as the original is past its best sadly . All in all im pretty happy
with it for a blind buy of ebay :)

Bill, hi
Re the 900RS, really like the bike - looks great with a nice balance of power, brakes handling etc, only negatives for me are fast idle which is way too intrusive, and a very abrupt initial throttle response: but I suppose you get used to it. You pleased with yours ?

Hi Bill,

Where do you find all these nice projects? Have you got a “project tree” which grows them for you?

I’m envious for sure as I’m looking for something two stroke at the moment!

The F came is two very nice colours, the Candy Sky Blue and the Candy Yellow (Brown) either looks good on a Triple.

Owned two H1''s and a H2 and I'd take an H1 every time. They're still mad as a box of Frogs, but in a way that makes you giggle, not pi55 you off.

Enjoy.

like it , I have an F and and a E and I prefer them to the 750 , both rubber mounted engines nice and smooth and you can drop the clutch from a standing start from the red line and nail to 110 , its managable - try that on the 750 it becomes a hand full and it feels like a pneumatic drill. With regard to the colour its correct but Im not sure its candy sky blue , despite what the internet say - RB t?
yes you can have too many bikes
