welcome from kent ... yeah going to love the grunt at 110ft/lbs of thrust ... you'll be quickest to 70 no problem ... at 650 lbs wet and 8 ft long the front wont come up and the rear will take the torque

enjoy ... the rev limiter in every gear will keep you safe from over doing the revs

that crankshaft weighs 45 lbs !!

Taking delivery of my new (to me) Warrior next week… making a swap from an MT-09, so should be an interesting adventure!

Glad to be in the forum 👍
Well - finally arrived and got a couple of photos - what a great bike! Must admit I was a bit worried going from sports bikes to this - but she is an absolute dream to ride!

awesome example of the original warrior

yours to customise as you wish ...

may want to hang onto the bazooka .. i have

i see the government are trailing noise cameras in chelsea and kensington ... they are set quite low in Db's

not seen the black pillion seat brackets before ... i like it ... oh and the reason most of us keep the yami. rear view mirrors is because they are real steady at speed ... see what battery you have ? and use yami lube semi synthetic until you change the oil to your chosen one

do you know if its mineral semi or full sythetic?

if so keep it the same .... its always veen a big subject here over the years

here in the uk i run 38/39 rear tyre and 36 front

there is a very unique way of testing the oil level properly ... youll find a vid in the search

i loved the bazooka for years ... but gave in to the the one i have now ... which is noisy and probably stopped some idiot not seeing me but depending on where you live its a discussion for later

it pulls 110 ft/lbs and will burn the rear tyre on idle if you like that idea

oh and keep idle at factory setting ... otherwise you upset engine decal

i find i have to touch the rear brake to let the driver behind know im coming down in speed fast just by closing the throttle

this bike is awesome in corners just hold her lightly ... she will do the rest

so much to learn ... enjoy the journey

you have two plugs per cylinder

5000 rev limiter in ever gear

an ecu system from a mitsubishi gallant

r1 inverted forks up front

and the still rare ali frame just for starters

your reserve light is probably good for 18 miles ... after that not sure

body work ... most likely rust is under front mudguard where its press welded ... keep an eye on that

oh it runs fine on 5 to 10% ethanol mix in the fuel
and runs best on the cheapest unleaded you can find ... metal tank helps

later ... where are you based ?

Hi Tomba - thanks for all the info, much appreciated 👍
Sorry it took me a while to reply - had a manic couple of weeks.
Interesting point about the cheap unleaded… coming from sports bikes I defaulted straight to premium super unleaded… definitely wasn’t as happy on that tank of fuel! 😄
I’m based in a place called Yarnfield about 10 minutes south of Stoke on Trent.
