Hi all,

I thought it was about time I introduced myself. I bought a second hand GRiSO 1100 from Mario (Thunderbikes) back in January this year and have been loving every minute.  Prior to that I had a V7 Stone for a couple of years - which I also really liked but always felt was a bit lacking.

I've found the site a wealth of information and have really appreciated the open and honest discussions and depth of expertise. Since buying the bike I have farkled it up a bit (with help from the Ghetto):

Rizoma MA009b bars
Oxford heated grips
Stucchi rear luggage rack
MPH Cycles fix for starting problem
Rexxer map (by Mario)
Eastern Beaver PC8 Fuse box
Termi baffle (manufactured here in Perth)

Much as I liked the sound of the unplugged Termi, I followed the good advice from the forum and put a baffle in (had to get one made up).  Aside from being more neighbour friendly it has added noticeable power in the mid-range and improved fuel consumption by about 10%.

Anyway, thanks for all the help and hope to see you out on the road.

Cheers Mark

G'day Mark
Welcome from us all down in Tas.
I too have an G11, a fast red one ......
Get and check the swing arm and shock bearing lube, they come from the factory with close to none ..
Do a search on here to get full details ....
I too have a Termi, mine was unplugged when I purchased it, soon put the baffle back in ...
Anyway, take care, be safe and enjoy

Thanks for all of the welcoming posts !

The screen was on the bike when I bought it. I believe it is off a Ducati Monster (S4, S2) of the same era (2006). It does the job of making it a bit more comfortable out on the open road whilst not detracting too much from the naked bike feel.

Welcome Mark. There's a few of us ride most Fridays when we can. Pub lunches anywhere from Chidlow to Quindanning. Otherwise there's a Sunday run to Toodyay on the 29th. PM me if interested? (That goes for you too ConorW, and I still have your Landy lock.)

Always good to have new faces on a ride.

Cheers Richard

The best design of rocker covers for the 2V engine, I think. shame they didn't have them on the Norge and Breva. Still, keeps them unique and a little bit special...

G'day Mark, thats a damn fine looking motorbike. Welcome to the forum.
Pretty new myself and can vouch for the fine advice and support. I hope that you're loving your GRiSO as much I am mine. Will hope to catch up with you on the road one of these days. PM if you ever make it to Melbourne

29th to Toodyay is in the calendar Richard ( hope to see you then Mark) - and yep need to get myself all the way over to your place for the landy lock...better pack a lunch, must be at least 2k's. (Landy got run to Black Pt last weekend - ate up the sand and it was towing a trailer. Magic)
