Technical and tyres
Colder temps need a good battery which you have at 12.9v sitting and 10.5v and no less on cranking but needs more fuel as in full choke and NO throttle after the engine turns over a couple of times. More than a little throttle is a no no and will bypass the choke so I suggest you have unwanted air going in inbetween the carbs and engine or you have a non standard free flowing air filter fitted.
@oscarthegrouch Neither is mine......... but I have built up a huge collection of NOS parts for the X1...... including Exhaust, Seat, All Panels, Tank, Mudguards, Clocks, Lights and pretty much every other Important bit........just got to get the new Shed......... and stop going on this bloody site...!
Buying and selling
Hi there, I'm new to the forums but looking for some advice on what to get next. Currently have a 1990 ZZR600D but looking for something a little more modern come January.
I have narrowed this down to a early-mid 2000's Yammy R6 or a early-mid 2000's Kwaka zx-6. Mainly looking to find out from people who have owned either of these things like riding position, comfort ect...
It will be used near enough everyday for commuting and distance journeys (400 miles) on rare occasion.
Any insight given will be much appreciated and thank-you in advance.
