Hello folks. Having done only 800 miles in the last year I've decided to sell my VStrom and get something stupid.. I.e. an FZ750. I bought the 'Wee Strom' from my local Suzuki dealer GPWheels Grimsby in May 2014, it was 11 months and only had 3 (yes three) miles on the clock. They'd PDI'd it and parked it in the corner of the showroom. It was in effect a new bike. I added 5200 miles then a change of job saw it spend most of the last year sat in the garage. The 650 VStrom is for my money THE best value Adventure style bike around. Enough get up and go to be fun, yet easy to handle and affordable. It's been returning from 50 to 65mpg depending how 'spirited' I ride. It's supremely comfortable alone or with a pillion and has a fab tank range, I generally fill up after 220 miles with 25-50 still in the tank. It's in superb condition (photos available) in black/graphite and has genuine Suzuki extras fitted - hand guards, tank pad and chain guard. Anyone looking will not be disappointed. PM me for photos or more info. £4000 (would be interested in p-ex with the right FZ). Cheers, Mick.
vtr: Hi from cape town; new at forum's not at bike building; the insanity is contagious. Recently acquired a "1FU" FZ750 with dropped valves and decided cool to rebuild as a 911conversion sleeper, what we do to ourselves...

grahamfirestorm: Can anyone tell me why my bike doesn't seem to light up after 7000rpm like all the research I did before buying it.She has the standard 4 into 1 exhaust,carbs rebuilt with new jets,seals,floats,2 new diaphragms,all valve clearances checked and adjusted?

grahamfirestorm: She revs round to 10000rpm ok,but there is no urgency with it,my 1987 Kawasaki gpx750 was a lot quicker,and that was supposed to be 10-15 bhp down,ive been told the standard silencer and air filter are to blame but I don't believe that.

Graham : grahamfirestorm. Do you have standard size main jets fitted to your carbs? I would be tempted to go up a size or even two to see if it helps the bike pull stronger at high revs.
