Hi all, Hope all is alright. After saving for a long long time, I've finally bit the bullet and bought myself an R1. Bought it off an old bloke (family friend) who only rode it on warm sunday summer mornings. Its immaculate, 5,000 miles on the clock with MOTs to back it up as true mileage. Fitted with ohlins damper with harris bracket, harris rearsets, akropovic system and lots of other bits and pieces. Very Happy

Here are a few pics, I have added some R&G bits + sliders (thanks Saj) since these photos were taken

Thats pretty good! Considering when my first year insuring my YBR Fully Comp but with no benefits and about £400-£600 excess cos me around £650 to insure. And that was only a 125 =S

Put it in for fixing today! Can't wait to be back on the road!

Haha yea tell me about it. I think I might have duped!

Looks like my old bike isn't going to be running any time soon. They want £500 just to srtip the engine down to find out what is wrong with it.. thats before any repairs or parts are charged for. I think I might just get this bigger bike I was on about in my introduction thing.

The guy in th garage suggested that I could source a second hand engine and have them fit I for me. Do you think that might be worth doing or should I just sell the bike as parts n get this new thing?

Cheers

What bike is it? And what are the problems. We could have a go at stripping it if you fancy. Just bring it down to my garage and we could go from there. Pm me if interested. All the best. Damo

The bike a little Yamaha YBR125. As I say it is only a little thing. And how much would you be thinking of charging for the same kinda thing? And where abouts is your garage? Thing is I would need to transport the bike some to get there. I can fit it in the back of a car but I doubt my dad would be willing to take it too far.

This 850 is going for £750. I wanna see it running before I buy, but thats on the cards. I am getting paid on the 9th so things should be happening around then. Cheers Damo

Kev.

kev, sorry mate I didn't realise that you were in Luton. I was gonna say just buy me a drink. It's quite a long way to travel tbh as I have no guarantee that I can get it working. Sorry bud. It's a shame you are so far away. If I can help you with anything via message though just give me a shout. Nice one and good luck. Damo

No worries man Smile I certainly will keep you in the loop with this. I need all the help I can get haha!

If I arrange things right, I might be able to transport to somewhere in London, if that is where you are. It would mean organising things a bit better that is all. I'd have to get my dad onside.

And I would go as far as to buy you 2 pints!!

Cheers Damo

Ok, just looked up where Wallington is - A little too far a fear. Smile Thank you anyway
