Excellent to modify

published

One of the easiest bikes to modify to improve look and handeling. Great comeback of the classic W. This bike will give anyone who enjoys a project a lot of options. Easy tune ups and installations of improved parts. I have replaced mudguards, food pegs, mirrors, speedo, handelbar, leavers... You name it. It's looking now better than one of these customs that you buy in a shop. Great project bike for someone who once to get into it... and yes it rides well too.

Simply gorgeous

published

Bought one in NZ, sept 2012. A simple bike for simpler times. Works best at a unhurried speed, with no destination in mind. Screen, panniers will spoil the look in my opinion and there are better suited bikes around. But if you just want something that makes you smile everytime you ride it and have strangers stop to compliment you on your bike, this is it. A keeper.
Useful torque means no need to constantly change gears around town.
Not built for speed or touring in comfort.

The best executed retro ever!

There doesn’t seem to be a definitive answer as around town it varies but on long trips it’s about 230 km per tank before I finally found a servo (the fuel light was flashing So I put the odometer on & when I found a servo it was 37 km) Nowadays I fill up around the 200 km mark Hope this helps? Still really enjoy my W800, great all rounder so easy to ride & I still look over my shoulder @ her when I walk away after an always enjoyable ride.

The twin engine has a bit of vibration... isnt it great! If you are concerned- get a mechanic to check it. There is a chance some bearings are tight after sitting which your bike apparently has.

Thank you for your reply
I took it to my motorbike mechanic for a check,still there
Maybe a lighter oil to run it in would help ?
Thanks Colin

hi Gideon - well you've got the right bike, -as it may have been sitting idle for awhile may i suggest you change the oil & fuel otherwise just take her for rides for about an hour have a rest for a while & repeat this aides in the running in process worked for me from new so 2,400 is still new. check your tyre pressure too. Like I said you got the right bike - enjoy. PS: I still have mine & She likes me back-win!
