  1. XL 600 18L Acerbis Tank

    What's it worth?
    I mistakenly bought a tank, it was described as fitting an XT600 Yam, it doesn't - Its an Acerbis Tank and has 1835 stamped underneath, 18L twin taps, and it was described as fitting as a Honda XL600 - though I'm not sure what year, I think 88 ish. Here's a pic - the one I have is in black - and...

  5. 2-up on a 660?

    I am planning on renting a bike in Corsica for a few days, with probably around 3 days of 2-up touring. It appears I can get a Yam 660 for a LOT less money than a vstrom (which I know is dead comfy 2-up, cos I've got one) or NC700X. Without me posting pics of the missus' ras, can anyone offer...

  7. Provisional Licence

    Can someone who is the know confirm something for me on riding a 125 on a provisional licence please? My lad passed his CBT last year when he was 16. This I understand allows him to obtain a provisional licence that allowed him to ride a 50cc until he is 17 (soon) and then a 125cc bike after...
  8. DNA Air Filters

    DNA - High Performance Filters Anyone used these on their TA? A search didn't yield any results. They are quite highly thought of on the Yam XT660 forum. K&N's seem to be the high-flow filters people many people think of, but I have heard the odd report about high flow coming at the expense of...

    Nice day yesterday so when I got the logs in, walked and fed the dog etc., etc., I took myself off on the first road ride on my AT!!! Wow! What a feeling. To say it was different from the Yam 125 would not be an understatement! Have to get the legs used to being spread a lot wider and...
