Long story really. Only took it apart to up the idle speed. Cutting it short, battery went flat couldn’t find the charger as everythings still in boxes. Alarm went off and wouldn’t disarm, alarm held in one hand ripped out of the seat unit, wires exploded everywhere, alarm still going off in my hand until I hit it with a lump hammer.
All happened in about one minute so goes to show a bike is still very much nickable even if it has a 400 quid alarm on it.
Anyone can have the bike off me, make me an offer, just needs loom fixing, I can’t be arsed with the piece of sh1te. Worst bike over ever had, even my bandit 6 was more fun!July 1, 2010 at 11:19 am #60907imperialdataKeymaster
Yikes! At least you know how to pinch yourself a new one now.July 1, 2010 at 5:02 pm #60908katanaParticipant
50 quid?July 2, 2010 at 12:42 am #60909
And I still feel bad about taking a hammer to a watch I couldn’t get the back back onto, that was about 8 years ago, so guess your going to feel for this for quite some time. Yes we ALL feel frustated at times, I guess every one of us could right a best seller on the subject. Do we mellow with age? I think not, we just accept S*!t happens regardless.July 2, 2010 at 9:26 pm #60910
Jeez Ben you didn’t like that Gixxer! How much damage has been done to the loom?July 4, 2010 at 8:27 pm #60911
Aye all gone to hell but a good laugh.
£50 is too much kat I’d feel like I was robbing you anyways for once I’ve decided to make the piece of poo a great bike by throwing a couple of quid at it and make it what it should be. Power commander on the way, just in the process of getting a racefit growler off eBay and a few other bits and pieces. Then I’ll be sorting the wiring loom out (which is totally shredded radar) n will hopefully hav it back soonish.
Will possibly bs getting a gasflowed head bolted on to give it a bit more whallop.July 4, 2010 at 8:30 pm #60912

Nope just kept hitting it harder. Any more whallop and I’d have damaged the hammer  I think its something called frustration plus increasing temper resulting in taking it out on inanimate objects. Yep most of us have been there.July 5, 2010 at 6:17 pm #60914July 7, 2010 at 10:29 am #60915

What’s the vid of radar? If I click a YouTube link on my phone it won’t load the video but it loads all others. It’s crap!
