  1. #314 is on Hampshire, England @ 16,700 miles. Bought 2nd hand a little while ago so have no idea about what is sitting between the engine & gearbox so will just keep going until it goes bang or get it replaced one winter. I'm planning to go to Mandello for the 100th in 2021 so need to get it resolved before then.
  2. Hi, #314 currently resides in Hampshire, England. 17 yrs old and only 16k miles; I must work on that!! Rgds. Noel

  4. @ bbolesaz No, the low fuel light does not come on. In fact I realised last week I've never seen the light on so better start by checking the bulb!! D-oh! Rgds. Noel
  5. Hi, 2002 V10 Scure 14k miles since new; owned by me for 3 months, completed 700 miles – still getting to know the bike. Fuel consumption is 40 miles per imperial gallon, fuel light NEVER comes on, mainly because I fill up at the 100 mile point. This is because I have a problem!! Symptoms: RH cylinder backfires when low on fuel. Rubber inlet manifold between RH carb & cylinder detaches [blown off by back fire]; engine then over-revs [3kRPM] w/ throttle closed. Conditions: Only happens when v. low on fuel. Current solution: let it cool down, refuel, re-fit. If I refuel every 100 miles or so the issue would not occur but would rather find the correct solution. .......or is this just an additional feature of V11 not mentioned in the sales brochure!!! In reading the posts, interesting to note the comments about fuel on the LHS of the tank and about the fuel level sensor failing. I guess I'm going to have to strip down everything from the tank to the inlet manifold to see whats going on. BTW, great forum!! Many thanks in advance, Noel
  6. Hi, 2002 Scura #314. 16k miles. No transmission issues so far!! Rgds. Noel
  7. What is it with some Scura owners? Like you, I purchased a 2002 Scura yesterday w/ only 14k miles on the clock! Weather is carp here [The UK] so can't wait until Spring/Summer. Until then, it's keeping my '81 leMans MkII company in the shed [aka mancave].
