Welcome in Rob. Thatís a nice tidy looking bike. There is a list of alternative discs that will fit our bikes. 👍

Here you are Rob.

Welcome Rob, nice looking bike, you have the pillion seat cover which is pretty rare and the gold wheels look good 👍

Thankyou, its my first sports bike and i know its a dinosaur compared to all the new stuff, but it certainly goes well and sounds amazing cheap to insure and its not bad on juice either.

Ive been looking at front discs and it looks like the ones for the exup are the cheapest @£155 for a pair.

Question about the reg plate size these older bikes did they come with a smaller plate or a was it a full size plate?

Thanks

Thereís nothing wrong with these dinosaurs. In the right hands they will keep up with some of the modern stuff. 👍 As for number plates. It was a bit of a fad about 20 years ago to have a small number plate, but Mr plod wasnít happy with them. They have to be legal size now. nod

Nice '89 model!

Looks in a good condition; for the ride, many yougsters do not know any more how to handle these: they are used to electronic support (ABS, anti-wheely, ride by wire, .....) and are amazed to see how these 'dinosaurs' can beat fly around them on the road big grin

Mine is definitely not as nice, but rides like a charm with a musical Yosh muffler...
