I just looked at the manual  :156: and it says about tyre pressures

29 Psi Front
41 Psi Rear

It also says about running in.

For the first 300 miles avoid full throttle starts and rapid acceleration

It's quite an interesting book.

Too bad they couldn't have made it easier, like 30-front/40-rear!!

Mine was supplied by Kestral Honda in Coventry. I think I'll give them a call

I gave Kestral a call and they said they don't supply bikes Datatagged unless you pay.

That's what I run no problems-bent one rim along time ago because of low tire pressure-what I can't figure out is the DL650 same size tire is 36 psi to keep the tire from cupping-Honda wants 29 psi and it's only 50lbs lighter-so why is that

It's not a big motorcycle just a groovy little motorbike

Because the weathers been so sh#t I've had to bring the new girl in doors so that I can do some stuff to her

Put a stripe on the mudguard and made up a clear protector thing for the display. They want loads of money for them on eBay. I had some clear paint protector in the shed   :002:
I put it on with water, it's not stuck down properly on the edges yet but it will do





I noticed my radiator has a couple of dents in it already. Time to get a rad guard

Yes, I'd wondered about a screen protector. I might not bother, my old X screen didn't get scratched in 5 years. Not sure if the new screen is as durable though.

I went for the Evotech rad guard which is well made and understated. I'm not a fan of blingy shiny ones. Buy direct for good price and cheap postage.

Got a Pyramid mudguard extender to fit next - not that I think it will make much difference. I went out the other week for a 20 min ride on local country roads and when I got back the bike looked like it had done a weeks rallying!

Thanks that Evotech rad guard looks good

I don't think it needs a dash protector either but they do sell them so maybe they do. I had the paint protector out so I thought I might as well make one. They want 10 for one on ebay  :170:

I think I'll get the front mudguard/fender extender

I'd love to go out for a proper ride  :730:

Spooky co-incidence - Eldest son got me a screen protector off of e-bay before I'd even taken collection of the bike, so that went on yesterday.
Before that I'd had the front mudguard off to fit a pyramid fender extender and whilst the mudguard was off I made up some stencils and cut out some dayglo yellow side and center stripe for the mudguard.
Today I got the scottoiler fitted cos I managed to get the front side panels off, allowing access to a vacum pipe, and then I fitted some LED running lights.

Like swanny, looking forward to taking out for a longer ride  :046:
