Re: Adapting a 42mm Clubman exhaust.

Would reducing your exhaust port timing cut the noise enough?

Re: What is wrong with people?

All those expensive things sound lovely. But really.. are there enough people under fifty left with enough interest to spend that sort of cash on a bike they've already chucked 3/4 of a lifetime of spare cash at? Personally.. I don't follow any scooter based pages on the FB, so have no idea how busy...

Re: What is wrong with people?

There's only so many times that gearing can be explained, and where to get the best exhaust.

Re: Clubman on GT186 - Ex Box?

If you can find one, you could do worse than an RS Clubman on a GT186. Mine had 17hp and pulled 4.6 gearing. No racing snake off the line or TS1 chaser, but could sit flat out on the motorway, well above 70mph.

Second owner tends to be/act like a hooli, so give any you come across a good once over.
Less likely with an F than an RR, to be fair. :lol:

Just over a grand would get you a lowish mileage 600.

Re: Clutch Enhancement?

Possibly ran it with an expansion on. This might make it slightly more reachable.
