  1. Good call on the spares. I'll be keeping some on me, from now on. Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk
  2. Well guys, this post sucks. I was commuting home from work this past Thursday and a car pushed me into the back end of an SUV. The car kept on its merry way, leaving me tumbling on the freeway. Thank God for good gear, and for the cars behind me stopping in time. My bike doesn't seem to be too banged up, and the same goes for me, luckily. I did an inspection on the side of the road, and most of the damage was to the spark plug guard. It saved the head, but the plug was destroyed. I was less than a mile from home, and the bike started up. Obviously, only one cylinder was firing, due to the broken spark plug, but I was able to get her home and in the garage. I'll be assessing the damage more when I get some free time. I've always wanted to be more active on this forum, but this definitely isn't what I meant by that! Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk
  3. Hey everyone! I know it's been over a year, but I believe if figured this one out. I thought I'd post my theory, then update when I get the parts in and the gearbox back together. Basically, the problem with down shifting seemed to go away, but it started creeping back. I was riding one day and the issue got worse. Then the selector spring broke, so I had to get the bike home in 2nd gear (thank you to everyone that posted on the forum about the springs breaking; it made my problem easy to diagnose). I got the new selector spring in and was putting the gearbox selector back together when I noticed ANOTHER broken spring, the Lever Spring. So, I believe that my troubles down shifting were because one of the long arms of this spring had snapped off. I also think this led to more stress than normal on the shifter spring, which caused it's failure, or it could just be a coincidence. Either way, I'm ordering a new lever spring from Harper Moto. Like I said, I'll update when I get her back together. Hopefully, these were the only gremlins in the gearbox! On another note, anyone have any advice on installing the circlips that hold the selector gears in place? I always seem to bend them out of shape, rendering them useless.

  7. I do fancy a Scura in its original form, or with slight modifications. That being said, this still looks like a cool ride. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G930A using Tapatalk

  9. It was nice riding again. When we stopped at the Rock Store, other riders talked our ears off about our V11's and took pictures of them. Good time! Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G930A using Tapatalk
