Say Hello to Lilith
« on: May 29, 2022, 01:28:57 PM »
Picked her up yesterday. She's going to take a bit of getting used to being a V4 and not IL4 (my last V4 was an NC24 race bike about 12 years ago).

Initial impressions are good. The BT023s on her are going though in favour of some Angel GTs after pay day. She's still on OEM hoses so I'll be ordering a set of braided lines from Wez. Forks are a little soft for my liking, there's a bit of dive under braking. For now I'll just twiddle the settings and replace the fork oil with something a bit thicker and see how it goes before investing in new springs. Same goes for the rear shock, a bit too soft for me. The clutch needs a bit of adjustment, the lever is quite far out and the bite is too, hopefully just an adjustment needed on the lever itself. The brakes too need a bit of attention, hopefully also just a lever adjustment. Eventually I'll treat her to a set of Pazzo levers but I have other pressing expenses to consider.
In the meantime, I need to read the book and figure out how to adjust the clock. A man reading a manual? Whatever next?  lol

Nice bike, looks to be in good nick.

Always fancied one of those, not the later ones.
Thought the 750cc gear deiven cams were a great bit of kit. A mate who worked in the dealers with me let me take his for a spin... loved the v4 sound.

Pity my back would make me regret buying one within 30mins. But still want one, maybe a candy red one.  vrrr
