Re: Any issues with Powercell tank?

Not yet. There are a few reports of fuels with high ethanol content causing the tanks to swell, which is putting me off. I don't need a huge extra capacity, just a little bit more will do. I'm hoping to use my SE to do sections of the French/Spanish/Portugese TET and just want slightly longer legs f...

Any issues with Powercell tank?

I'm looking for a bit more tank capacity, after doing a bit of research the Powercell option seems to come out better than Safari for comfort, weight distribution etc. Before I commit, does anyone have any feedback about the Powercell? Good, bad? Any issues I should know about? I know some people re...

Wanted: Powercell Tank

Hi,

I'm looking for a Powercell tank for my 950SE, ideally with fittings and a seat although not essential.

If anybody has one they are considering selling please could they let me know. Many thanks.

Re: better brake or twin discs

Maybe I ride like a poof, but I've never had a problem stopping. Once you've locked the front wheel there is no more stopping effort available. The bike was designed for a tyre like a TKC80, MT21 or similar. In my opinion the front brake easily stops one of those rotating with their limited contact ...

Re: Possible sale. Not sure yet gauging interest.

Hey, don't do it Wilso! Don't sell the bike, you'll only regret it it a few months time. If you're not riding it then I would suggest inhibiting (internal anti-corroding) the engine, drain the carbs and put it on SORN. When you have more time on your hands and the sun is shining it will be waiting f...

Re: getting the bike off the ground ......

Hello Shipdamite, Yes, you would be welcome anytime to come over and examine the centre stand on my bike. You have my phone number and the tea urn will be brewing. As a suggestion though, the centre stand is held on by two bolts. You can fit and remove it in literally two or three minutes. You could...

Re: getting the bike off the ground ......

I hope you don't mind my asking, what's the problem with fitting a centre stand?

It would seem to be the ideal fix for what you need.

Re: Air box removal

I found various people who could wind spring...
