Information: fuk me this was dissappointing! i bought this cos i thought it would be fast, and indeed, most are, but this was just shit.
when i bought it (another eBay "bargain") i was led to believe it was a perfect runner, but after driving 100 mile to collect it i found the owner had taken the bike to a garage cos it "wasnt running right" and they had taken the barrel off and told him it needed a new piston.
if i hadnt driven so far to collect it i wud have told him where he could go and walked away, but after he promised to buy me a new piston and send it on i payed him his cash. (mistake No. 1)
I later discovered that he had taken the barrel off on purpose because the crank seals were shot and he wanted to hide it from me so i had to split the crankcase and replace the seals and bearings. that wass a whole lot of cash and time i didnt want to spend. if i ever meet the twat who sold it to me i will punch him for sure.
anyway, even after rebuild it was slow, and had no torque at all. the slightest hill would mean 1st gear revving the stones off it and doing 2mph.
this would never do so i flogged it.
good riddance i say...
