    Well, A few people of late have asked about this, So thought I might as well show my face and live up to your criticisms.

    Well when I bought it It looked like this. Completely Standard. Except it was De-Restricted and Had a side stand!!:eek:!!

    Well I soon got Completely bored out of my ass with the lack of power (2 hours later) And went and did what every 16 year old would do, Bought a TT, new spark plug cable and a spark plug! :D
    Ended up looking this.

    Well I road around like a bellend without jetting it till I blew the piston, So I finally got a new piston, got a ride to pedparts and they set it up for me. So I road around for ages till I saw my mate blast past me on his 70's and thought I need some of that. So went and bought a polini sport, Polini Air Filter, Malossi Clutch, Polini Belt, Polini Variator.

    So I ended up with this.

    Also DeBranded And painted up my TT (Rust:mad:)

    Got it all Setup Ran 9.18 on the dyno!!

    So I was happy with it! Few months went past, All was good. But me being me Got bored once again! I thought I want POWER, So I got the trusty dremel out and butchered everything haha. I ended up with this.

    How come some projects are marked as title on the board and always stay at the top?... Upper and middle class separation?... I need to speak to David Cameron about that! lol

    It's either £10 for just a run up and you can go setup yourself, Or £40 including parts and they'll do it for you.
