About

A go anywhere, do anything kind of bike. Back to basics with modern features, such as ABS and Fuel Injection. The low seat height makes it an ideal bike for those who like the enduro style, but are a bit short in the leg ( Me included! )

Small Issues?

A couple of small issues have cropped up in the short time of owning this bike, all of which have been an easy fix.

Headlight rattle - Only occured when switching the standard bulb out for an alternative one. This was resolved by fitting a thin strip of foam tape around the inside of the headlight bowl, thus dampening the vibrations.

ABS line rubbing - The ABS lines from the front brake route along the inside of the petrol tank, next to the frame. As there isn't a huge amount of room next to the tank, the brake lines rub slightly. This was fixed by cutting some spare pipe and placing over the lines.

Front mounting framework - Slightly uneven on one side, unbolt and move across.

Paint quality - scratches easily and slightly worn where legs meet tank. Rust behind the clocks and footpegs ( inside steelwork ) as tubes are open! Spray inside with ACF-50 or alike.
