New to bikes and

recently purchased a beautiful Hurricane as my first bike. Hads to mend a few

things, weld Exhaust, water pump cover leaking, fuel tap etc but I love the

bike. I cannot believe the power.

Thanks guys


/>I am in Scotland and love my Hurricane. It may be 16 years old but does not

look it. The last owner had it 7 years and never had it out in rain. He got

shot of it after a few exhaust problems, then the stub on the water pump cover

fell off causing him to lose all the water. I was in the right place at the

right time and for a small sum it was mine. Welded the exhaust, still a slight

blow but a winter lay up will sort that. The water pump stub was

"chemical metaled" with a piece of stainless the right bore and a

splash of antifreeze, we were running. Passed my test the following week and

WOW :upsidedown:

I have a shed load of questions on things I have

found over the last 900Kms, hope you guys will be patient  :zaehne029:

Eddie -

where in Scotland are you?

I'm coming up in a couple of

weeks, hopefully with the bike, if I can get her sorted  ::)


/>There's a couple more owners near the Falkirk area I think

Thanks to everyone

for the kind words. I wil post a pic when I can work out my camera. I am

bottom side of Glasgow, not many owners of Hurricanes around here as every

time I ask about bits for her, they look at me as though I was :stupid:.

/>I cannot be the only one that thinks its a great bike. Okay its my first

bike and I would probably say that anyway, but it is amazing. Easy to ride,

very powerfull (for me) and it's condition belays its age.
Why be

the same as everyone else and ride a Fazer, Diversion or anyone of the other

600s out there. It's easy to be differant if you accept that you are.

anyway. I don't mean to go and on. You guys must hear this all the time

from Newbies :technik010: :zaehne029:

One more question

tonight...... How fast do they go.
Mine won't top 9000revs in 6th

about 120mph (It was on airfield honest officer) it will rev out in every

other gear ??

cheers :thumbs:

Though most owners are happy about ther bike, not all type it like you do

:D
But indeed it's a fun bike to ride. I think the people in here

will agree, although some have had their share of trouble with it..


/>All Hurricanes or aerosports were restricted when they came rolling out of

the japanese factory.
If you wanna learn on de-restricting it, check :

http://hurricane.isalive.nl/index.php?page=technical&sub=derestrict or do

a search on the forum.

My top speed is about 235 km/hour ( 147

mph)
You'll find more teh info on the main site at the technical

link

I

mirrored your initial opinion when I first starting riding mine, but

unfortunately for me, my enthusiasm has been dampened somewhat by my recent

hassles, but I thoroughly enjoyed the five weeks in total I got to ride it

this year

I'm coming up to Dunoon in a couple of weeks,

hopefully with my bike if I can get it fixed in time, we'll have to meet

up, I'm dying for an excuse to ride The Rest and be Thankful, and Loch

Lomondside road  :thumbs:

Have you insured yours as a classic? I

paid £98 fully comp for my first year of insurance, having just passed my

test, no NCB and I'm thirty

If you want a hand to de restrict

your bike, I have done mine by changing the speedo, not quite as easy as it

sounds or by modifying the existing clocks.

I'm quite happy to

help you with either.

Welcome to

the board..

I must admit that I never tried to rev her up to max in

6th gear.. when I was in 6th gear going full throttle I only watched the road

:D not the revs..  a quick peek at my dashboard at that time did show I was

doing more than the speedo could handle though  :new_shocked:

 :schilder006: I

think I'll keep it at the speed it does. It wasn't my intention to

max it :nono:. It was a great bit of airfield ;) and I looked down to see why

she was misfiring. I knew I was in top and the tacho was dancing on 9000rpm, a

quick glance at the speedo and that was enough for me.

For

Insurance when the girl asked when I had passed my test, I asked her what day

it was. She laughed and quoted £96 TPFT.

I

keep meaning to put a picture of my bike on my profile. The only thing is, the

whole thing is in bits. Mind you it'll give everyone a laugh I guess. I

need to find some members near me so I can see what they are meant to look

like.
