Post by Big gee » Mon Oct 02, 2017 5:29 am

Hi everyone my name is Gary (big gee) I’ve just bought my first ever firestorm an r reg yellow one, it has micron carbon race cans k and n air filter dump jet kit waves discs all round , manual cam chain tensioner all in all a tidy bike , the only down side it’s done 21000 miles , dump print out says it has 101 boho at the rear wheel but the power curve is lovely and smooth, sounds like thunder when ticking over, any tips or advice on tuning and maintenance will be graciously accepted , hope to enter into lots of banter on here, thanx guys ( and gals )

Greetings

Check the *** Read Me for New Members *** > Bike Maintenance and Upgrades/Modifications > https://www.vtr1000.org/phpBB3/viewtopi ... 45#p304638

and the Workshop Knowledgebase > https://www.vtr1000.org/phpBB3/viewforum.php?f=31

One thing to check even though your Storm is quite low milage would be the swing arm / shock linkage bearings https://www.vtr1000.org/phpBB3/viewtopi ... 31&t=11809

and the regulator/rectumfrier...

If you can post your location in your profile and post some pics of your new storm beastie (bonus points awarded / deducted based on the bike's colour & if acertain additional objects are in frame ;-)
dump print out says it has 101 boho
Did Peacocks do your tuning? https://www.peacocks.co.uk/trend/boho.html :lol:
Summer is coming and so is the boho trend. Release your inner boho goddess in patchwork and floral prints teamed with crochet and tassel trend detailing.

The boho trend is a staple summer trend perfect for coming sunshine, holidays and festivals. It's time to become boho beautiful.
