I'm quite interested in this, can somebody who has seen a failure tell me what the actual damage is that occurs ?  Ok the sprag disintegrates, I get that, but what else happens...i.e. how bad does it get.  My partner has the ES and I had to retain it because she is tiny and has a bit of difficulty kicking it over (when cold). When the bike is hot it's usually an easy starter with the kicker but I didn't want to risk her being out somewhere and not being able to get it going (for now). I  actually don't like how it looks (an opinion shared by many on here it would appear) and would like to eventually remove it but not until she's totally confident kicking it over in any situation. The bike is actually fitted with a LiFEPO4 battery in a Lucas 'rubber box' so at least that looks period, she is also well versed in using the decomp to stop the engine etc. Don't think that one has ever kicked back (touch wood) but no doubt that's a counting down to doom' situation...we shall see. My bike on the other hand kicks back regularly (it's a KS only '99) which I rather suspect has a lot to do with the electronic ignition...which is set up correctly and has a fully charged battery.....my to do list definately includes removing that and prpbably the ES on hers when she's confident  :)

650 Twin - Interceptor/GT / Seal cowl question
« Last Post by Gremlinsteve on Today at 10:17:25 am »
I see online that the seal cowl and solo seat are a option from re
The bike I have is a u.s.spec bike so it came with a two up seat

I don’t ride two up though

My wife would like me to purchase a seat cowl and the solo seat.  I’m wondering if any one has a source for this.   I heard that parts sent from India are not being shipped due to the virus

For me, when riding the pegs are quite comfortably placed its just that when I stop and have to put my feet down they get in the way. I have ridden many bikes over the years and the Interceptor is the only one with this annoyance. I tried a Hitchcocks footrest kit and that moved the pegs out even farther which is why I made my own.

The stock mufflers are surprisingly heavy, I didn't weigh them when I took them off but there is a really significant difference between the stock and the Zard polished SS cans that I now have fitted. Incidentally I've removed the db reducers on my cans and they also sound 'characterful' to say the least :)

Can anyone tell me the actual weight of the supplied mufflers,  I have seen  numbers between 10kg and 18kg (18 sounds high). Maybe I need to take mine off and weigh them!

I installed them myself but did not weigh them
It’s a significant weight difference though
