PostSubject: hello from Western Australia   Fri Sep 25, 2015 3:33 am

Just a sod buster from western AUstralia ,I own a breva 1100 , looking to pull the trigger on a 2010 GRiSO,
I'M gleaning as much information as I can from here and else where , I figure if I buy with my eyes wired open
there shouldn't be too many shocking surprises .

So hello to all here.
nev.

ps bit slow on getting a grip on this new fangled internet  type communication.

G'day Nev
Greetings from us all down in Tas
Welcome to the Ghetto
Good idea to have a look at the info here prior to buying your GRiSO
There is a thread on here in relation to what you should look for and ask prior to purchasing.
Just do a search and you should find.
Some great info here
Regards

Nev, how many kms on this bike and where has it been serviced? Familiarise yourself with the flat tappet motor issues and if you do buy adjust asking price accordingly. I'd also suggest that you pay to have the tappets inspected even if you detect no problem initially. An ounce of prevention is worth a ton of cure. Make sure it has a full service history.

Sorry went for dinner and a footy score update (groan)
thank you for the advice , bike has 27000 km , no service history , so the roller update
will be on my head I understand that, I do like tinkering , it did start and idle nicely from cold,
it will all come down to the price  , I also read somr where Pete you are waiting for three  or so
roller kits so that may also be a factor . I'm in no hurry the 2015 models have come down a few bob as well
how ever long that will last .
thanks for the welcomes Very Happy

Warden and Tassiedevil spent 10 day in Tassie in feb this year , gosh I really enjoyed my time there, just travelled around the edge,
loved all the convict history, I really don't know how the semi trallers deal with the push bike riders on some of those roads, they
must have a lot of patients. Will get  back there some day don't know when , and there would have to be some tigers in all that bush
hiding some where surely.

thanks street tocino and nth producer for the welcome .
