    Conti GT535 spare parts

    That's what they told him, he had to buy the complete set. EFI (electronic Fuel Injection) Fuel pump and all accessories. Bad design and bad marketing in my opinion.Sent an e-mail to Hitchcock in England and they couldn't help, only confirming what I just wrote.

    Conti GT535 spare parts

    535 Continental GT (2018) A friend of mine is looking for the broken plastic part as you can see on the photo. It happened as he tried to take off his tank. A call to RE turned out to be the biggest rip-off I have ever heard, he has to buy the complete EFI unit at approx. $1000.00 just to...

    Bridge opening on State Highway 25A 20.12.2023

    This was already a road going through the countryside before a massive slip took out big parts of the road so they made a decision to put a bridge in. This is in New Zealand.

    Bridge opening on State Highway 25A 20.12.2023

    All signs looking good for the opening of the SH25A bridge connecting the coasts of the lower Coromandel. The Waihi Enfield Riders meet at 10:00 on 20.12.2023 at the Waihi BP station for a ride to the opening, then up to Coroglen, having lunch at the Coroglen Tavern and back to Waihi via...

    650 kickstand too short

    If you say forward, you mean towards the front wheel,right?. I must say that I am 67 now and had a triple bypass last year. So my "power" is almost gone...

    650 kickstand too short

    I'll try that and let you know because that is annoying sometimes. Now I never use the bloody main-stand. Let's see.

    650 kickstand too short

    I think the side-stand is OK but encounter problems getting my INT up on the main stand. Never had a problem with other bikes.

    650 kickstand too short

    I don't lean that much anymore, otherwise I have to pay out for new boots all the times or at least get my ones repaired now and then...

    Time to stay frosty, and not talking about the weather!

    I see you are riding an Interceptor like me. Coincidentally you have the same type of clock as I have in the middle of the handlebar,lol. I got mine from China and it is already 2 years old...and still works. Regarding the horn, yeah the Interceptor has two of them and they are very loud. Here...

    I just want to post a nice Interceptor 650 photo.

    Where are you from? I'm from Waihi. Nice pic, looks like in the bay of Plenty but can be anywhere here too, lol. We down here are waiting for the re-opening of SH25A which would make the shorter Coromandel loop open to ride again. Whaka Kotahi said something around Dec.20th.

    My one still has the original ones on it too. And in 2 years time (I got it in October2021) it was getting louder and louder without doing anything to it. Now it has a real good roaring sound.

    They are all made in India now and the quality is really good. I've got my Interceptor since 21 and it goes like a charm.

    I just want to post a nice Interceptor 650 photo.

    The original seat is not quite nice, I agree. What I realized is that with my original pipes and baffles still in it, the bike is getting louder the older the bike gets and it sounds OK, so for me no change until the warranty is up anyway. For the price of 2 new S&S pipes, I can do a lot of...

    I just want to post a nice Interceptor 650 photo.

    I paid around 800 NZD and got them fitted. Not cheap but I use them a lot...Have a look at E22 panniers, the only ones for the Interceptor. One of our riding members has the S$S pipes and he removed the baffles, what a sound, just great. Not as the damned Harleys just making noise...
