Hideous silencer
Anything worth knowing apart from the stuff on the 1200 I already know.
Obviously I know they have clutch rattle.
Think its only done about 200 miles since 2015 Laughing

Congrats. One GRiSO wasn't enough?   Smile   I think I like that colour.  Surely gets you noticed!  

Are those heated grips?  

Those hand guards give it a tough do-it-all image.  But that silencer has to go.

I suppose should have said was a mates purchase, just knew though be having some heavy involvment with it.
He didnt intend to buy another bike this year having just sold his XJR1300.
He had a medical emergency that left him skint after a while, he had to keep his Private Hire License going so bike had to go.
I spotted the yellow peril and at £3500 with 2 owners and 23k miles, which has to be one of the cheapest about & the temptation was just to great for him Laughing
He borrowed 2grand and went for it.
He's always wanted a GRiSO for about as long as I have. 1100 1200 dont think that really mattered, same as me where colour was concerned any good GRiSO will do Cool
Normally yellow is a bit of a hairdressers colour Laughing The GRiSO is about as masculine as they come and male manipulates it easily Razz

The handguards are gone, the grips are heated Hein Gerrick ones.
Swapped out the corroded pattern levers today for some new pattern levers, ripped out a bad functioning battery sapping Sola-larm.
Fitted my latest incarnation of Lcjohnnys Startus Interuptus 2 fix.
His bike was the "A" typical startus interuptus setup.
Fully charged battery showing 12.6volts, starts a few times then click, off and on click, off and on click.
No fuse blowing just the typical pain in the arse no start.
Rich owners like the bloke we bought the neglected bike off play right into our informed hands Very Happy
Had to laugh mate did 110mph home and between 80 - 90mph for the 100 mile journey, did think his tyres had a good contact patch in the torrential rain.
Was 22psi in the rear and 20psi in the front that explains that then Shocked Laughing
Oil was decent enough and just on the end of the stick, about a quarter pint short.
Both his rear indicators are snapped and held together with electrical tape, though replaced one today from a pair paulbrice sent me.
One of his rear tank mount rubbers is missing.
Airbox was clear of oil though throttle control springs suggested it has been over filled in the past or maybe somebody lubed them external.
Got new dunlop sportmax tyres and new brake pads already fitted.
Bent out the rear brake lever as was well turned in.
Bike has Knight Design lowered shifter/brake pedal pieces. Stole one for my bike as significantly longer than anything cheng shin makes Very Happy
Got plenty of scuffs and scrapes so defo been over on both sides, and yes that silencer is disgusting though it sounds alright.

Next job is suspension pivot block/change all he fluidsl.

Zero heavy involvment.
He received a coffee box the other day from previous keeper full of paper work and one receipt for over  2K worth of work.
Replaced swing arm bearings, fully greased suspension pivot block (We checked cheers )looks like two sets of bearings were replaced as newer and no rust on bush ends, plus associated damage to pivot block to remove.
Replaced head race with taper, was remapped and throttle body balance, am thinking maybe beetle but for that silencer only the man himself might know.
Giving good fuel consumption no low speed surging.
Tappets adjusted and new rocker gaskets though what version we do not know, if they leak guess we will know. All oils and brake/clutch fluid, new brake pads all around and new tyres Dunlop Sportmax variants.

Can imagine the startus interuptus issue killed it for him but who knows.

Mate insisted steering was good with forks all way thru yokes, eventually he gave in and dropped them two rings and now he reckons it steers much quicker and is easier to manoeuvre bom
