First topic message reminder :

hi all, my name is Terry and i am located on the Staffs/West Mids border. i have been riding bikes for around 40yrs now off & on road. i have recently purchased my very 1st  thundercat it's one of the first, reg'd 96. i purchased the bike off ebay and chose this bike for the paint job it's got and doing some homework on what the bike is capable of. i love my classic yam 2 strokes and i also own a streetfighter sv650.after the purchase my 1st reaction when i was riding it home was hey when i get into 3rd gear the bike comes into it's own, a little bit of a tiger. getting up to 3rd gear does not take very long, not much go there.will try to alter that with a change of sprockets.
well i found your forum and i am going to see how the bike goes, who know's i may meet up with some of you guys out on the road. witchy

Looking at the MOT history it's hardly turned a wheel since 2013 (350 miles), doesn't have an MOT at the moment and will likely need the downpipes changed.

Apart from that... Smile

hi guy's just a quick question what is the torque setting for the clutch springs

no wonder the original pipes rot, the cat suffers big time with condensation

The pipes can rot, but my '98 bike is still on the original set, I am about to order some, but I will put them into stock for fitting when do give out.
