My advice...don't touch it!
Since I bought my SS, every time I have a few beers and get on the internet some expensive accessory turns up in the post a few days later.
I can only believe this will be an even bigger problem with the older models.
I know that problem-look what happened to me-sat down with my mate John Hackett to discuss turning a crash damaged 1000SS into a cheap trackbike and then got a bit too enthusiastic-budget went right out of the window. Worst of all I don't have the excuse of any achohol to blame................
