Ah, I did wonder why there were so many Bandit riders. I've owned a couple of GSXR 11's, up until some scumbag nicked the last one, an M Sad

Love the ThunderAce Dick. Yamaha sorted the issue with cylinder block distortion and a few other FZR glitches. Nice bike and pretty I love you

Quick question, I'm sure you know about how hideous the FZR clutch is. Is the YZF any better and if it is is it a straight swap?

yamaha changed loads of the engine internals lighter crank forged pistons etc mines got a nice light clutch its only five gears doesnt need anymore,neutral can be a bit tricky at times chain adjustment helps there,i dont know about swapping the clutch its the same engine block so i would have thought so scratchstudy hope that helps sophie thumbs

Thanks Dick, I knew they'd sorted the distortion issues which caused the oil consumption problem. Honest, when I went to Greece on her I wish I'd bought shares in oil companies affraid

Working on her last night and noticed one of the fork oil seals is weeping slaphead Another 'little' job to add to the list Sad

I'd be quite tempted to put a YZF motor in if I came across one at the right price. Where did you say you parked yours Dick? hide
