Hi all, I've just taken delivery of my black 98 cat.

I'm a new rider (so new in fact that I have my Mod 2 this Thursday).

My bike is of dubious origins, so I will likely be asking a number of questions in my quest to make sure both the bike and I are safe.

Hi, welcome to the site. Hope all goes well on Thursday.

Post a pic of the bike when you can. There were a few version of black and grey as well as one with some red.

Thanks guys. Mine is a rough example, but I'll get some pics up this Friday (after I've -hopefully- passed MOD2)

Hope all went well with your mod2 Thumb Look forward to the pictures.
There's a wealth of info about the Cat in the Workshop Area, but if you can't find what you're looking for, just ask away and I'm sure someone will be along to assist you great

I failed my MOD2. Need a little more time on the bike before they set me free. I had 2 serious faults one was signals correctly (I didn't  cancel my indicator) and the other was control - balance / steady control.

I'm a little disheartened, but I suppose it is for the best and I'll be a better rider once I pass.
I resit on the 8th now.

Couple of snaps of the 'Swart Kat'

Shame that you didn't get the results you wanted,… but hey, practice makes better if not perfect 😉
You'll know better next time, just don't sweat it and relax.

That's a shame, bit more practice and you'll be there. Even full license folk fall foul of not cancelling indicators.
