    Just bought this from Victoria, the sissy bar has to go but it has recently had a 96 kit installed with cams and bigger carby, its only done 27k now i just need to get it back over to Perth if anyone has any suggestions, its in Traralgon and has a box of std parts with it as well. I have ridden it before the mods as it was a friends bike but with covid she had to sell it and i got a bargain.

    Nice looking ride! just thought I'd point out that year came stock with a shorter stroke motor 88 cubic inch, you can resize to 95 cubic inch, the later 96 cubic inch is a longer stroke same size bore as the 88" if you resize the the 96" it's 103". I like the 95" smooth Lower piston speed. ( I know aftermarket can male 1 or 2 inch more with the 88" but I'm talking factory ) enjoy it.

    Hi Mate, getting there is no problem, however getting home is totally different, 2 weeks quarantine in a hotel at my cost so not viable at this stage :(
