Australian VTR rider

Post by Spike62 » Mon Oct 15, 2018 2:40 pm

Hey people ,
Thanks for the information on VTR’s. just back to riding litre bikes after a long time and fell in love with the VTR on first ride.
By accident got to own a 97 Firestorm with less than 20 000 km on it and knew there was no going back.
Cheers

Thanks for the welcome guys!
Yes, I’ve mainly refurbished everything, overhauled callipers, forks,shock all oils and fluids and new coils, ignition pickup k&n a/f , and installed a dyno jet kit. It came with the 2” indigo exhaust system. The most fun was setting up the jetting with the dyno jet kit...... never, ever again😫. But I just love it now.
