Piaggio cafe... "The boys went to town on the little two-stroke, increasing it’s capacity to 75cc, up from the factory’s 49cc, adding electronic ignition, a 19mm carb, a hand-made exhaust and a lightened flywheel" ....cool as gelato
Christ. I bet that's fast.......................
Faster than a well sorted 250 i've heard?
Technical and tyres
Sounds like you have either overfilled the master cylinder and the fluid is struggling to return to the reservoir or you have an air lock, most common place this happens is at the master cylinder to brake line banjo bolt on the master cylinder, your first place to bleed after a drain and fill should be this banjo bolt, you only need to crack it open a little. Make sure you cover all paint work with rags and should you get any splashes on the paint rinse down thoroughly with lots of water.
A good idea to spice up world superbore bikes is to put a sex doll on the back, or even better put the girl on the front. I followed the series from 1989 but it's a total bore now it's time may come around again but with GP racing as good as it is I doubt you will see superbore bikes as popular as it was in the 90's.
Legal and insurance
Hi, just a footnote to your question, you can have 5 rider faults on the mod 1. So I cannot see how you failed for what your saying. You must have had a serious fault for something or not met the speed in one of the high speed exercises.
Buying and selling
As an addition to Can't Corner's post, be aware that some dealers will say it's been serviced when what they really mean is it's had an oil change and a look over. I had to question my local Triumph dealer over their "full service" comment when I bought a bike. Once I queried it they took it back in and it got a full service.
If they'd just said "a service" I would have been happy but there's a big difference between the two, so listen carefully to what they tell you.
It's a good idea to ask for a service sheet which details what the service actually entails.
