Hey up, just acquired an 08 8 valve 1200 GRiSO, one previous owner 5,000 miles, no outstanding recalls, very clean machine in black. I`m an ex Boxer man had an 11 year romance with a RWB Boxercup Replika. Wanted a more cool easy ride, seemed obvious thing to do really. Need to get luggaged up now.

Chris.

Welcome to the campfire. There's plenty of info on luggage here, so browse away, and should you have questions, ask away. And the denizens here really like photos!

Yes welcome Chris. Put up a photo of your bike Question
You say no outstanding recalls, does this mean it's already had the roller tappet kit fitted ?
Cheers , I'm having a Red label Chivas whiskey in your honour cheers

If we toasted every newcomer, we'd be a drunken lot.  Oh. Never mind.  clown

Welcome from the top of Virginia, Chris.  

Have only seen your part of this planet on the web and from 33K or so. Hope to visit it in reality sometime.

Wow, I`m humbled. A Yorkshireman living in the beautiful Borderland feeling warmth from all over the Globe where one of Yorkshires famous sons Mapped. (and missed Sydney harbour completely!)

Thanks again.

Rollerising?  Nah, if it aint broke don`t fix it son Wink

It will break. At least get it inspected. The results can be catastrophic.

It is broke, you just don't know it. There is no such thing as a good flattie.

Welcome!
Trouble is, if it's not rollerised, it was broke when it rolled out the gate at Mandello. Rollerise or you'll have bits of tappet slowly destroying the motor from within. No joke. Here is what mine looked like after just 6k miles:

The mighty GRiSO has this one terrible flaw. Once it's sorted, it's truly mighty.

It really is like the clap.

Sounds like a clap in its terminal stages. Interestingly ghonorea is known as the 'French Disease' in pommy land. Very Happy
