    Talking hello from scotland

    hi there
    been lurking around this site for a while now,been into bikes for around 30 years,mostly jap in line 4's with the odd single,been needing to scratch that v-twin itch.
    just bought a 51 plate rsv millie,pick it up next week,hopefully they are as good as i have heard.
    i'll stick up some photo's later.

    Twins take a bit of getting used to...not high rev motors but high torque monsters..find the sweet spot and they are fun fun fun

    well, i said i wasn't going to do much to it at first.......i've got a rex and a lawson rep and a zx7r in the stable too
    but the 7 is going to make room for the millie.

    il pass on this one ,, as the bike is fast enough for me as it is with the power commander & akrapovik blowers . but you seem to no about these bikes , heres a question , its fitted with a sponge air filter {looks like mega flow} & no air box . therefor there is nowere for the blow back pressure from the engine to go . with 16k miles on the bike , there does be a little drip of oil from the blow back pipe on top of no2 cylinder , is there an after market oil tank {breather tank "bottle"} that I can get .?
    cheers

    I did not want the oil recirculated into the air box on mine and leaving grunge in the throttle bodies so I added one of these to the oil vapour pipe: Small Breather Filter 15mm Neck Size (Oil / Crankcase / Air) 45x34x15mm | eBay

    Fits under the tank with no problem

    or some people fit a bit of sponge in the airbox to soak it up!

    welcome mate, you got that one from Morven Motorcycles then? It looked pretty clean!

    I bought the 04 RSVR from him a couple of weeks ago.. and the black Shiver 750 was my old bike..

    All the best with your new purchase!

    terriffic!! 3 hoodie bastards tried to steal the bike at work today,they got scared off but trashed the steering lock
    got it on cctv ,but doubt much can be done.
    can't turn the key to switch it on or turn the wheel to the right,don't know whether to involve insurance as they might right it off
    wot a bummer......
