As you may have seen in the 'show us yours' I have an old K3, which occasionally sneaks out onto the road. (Not Manx registered yet - well, we've only been here 9 years...oops).
Anyway, I am busy giving her a big tidy up for the Manx test (once only job for registration - no MOT here) and she really, really is slow. Yeah yeah, I know...but are they really that slow? Anything over 60 needs a good downhill run and a following wind (15t gearbox sprocket). I was wondering if they are all like that, or is the rough exhaust is causing hassles and losing me what power there is?
Mrs NHN has a couple of tidy CL250SC's and they are miles 'faster' - ahem - although boasting the same quoted power. So, is my K3 ill, or are they all like that, and my expectations and memory flawed? It has plenty compression, had new rings about 2000 miles ago, doesn't burn oil etc.
I've got a 250SB to do after this one too....
