  1. Get yourself a test ride on one too. You'll be very surprised at how different it is to your 650. They also do a red one too if you are after a different colour.
  2. Welcome to the forum. Yes i have one of these babies. I traded up from a 650 in February this year, and i have no regrets whatsoever. The bike is gorgeous! Its light, responsive and more comfortable than anything i've ever ridden before. The seat felt quite hard on the ass when i first got on it, but after a mile or so it was REALLY comfy. I cant get over just how light the front end feels - the 650 felt like a ton weight at times, but i feel like i have so much more control over this one. Looks wise - well IMO its a thing of beauty - Yamaha have completely revamped it, and it makes the other bikes in the Star range look dated. The arse end is much more sleek an more pleasing on the eye - my 650 had this lump of a light with indicators attached - something i never really liked, but this one is completely different. The front end is a litttle slimmer, but the pullback on the bars is more than the 650 thus giving for a less "stretched" ride, which is a bonus for me cos im only little. The belt drive replaces the old shaft drive, making the bike lighter, and the frame is a matte black - complimenting the chrome beautifully. I haven't had ANY problems whatsoever with it, i can load it up with my tent, sleeping bag, panniers, airbed AND a pillion and it will still go as smooth as it does unloaded. I love this bike to death.

  4. Actually no they dont. If a tattoo is done well then they DO NOT got bluey grey and wrinkle. My grandma was heavily tattooed and hardly any of hers went like that - she died aged 79........ It will never be properly certified, because the stuff thats in them that makes them "glow" is only certified for use on fish for scientific fish tracking and is not 100% safe for use on humans
  5. Will still look like that with the scarring
  6. Why? Because it "looks good"? Have you seen them when there is no backlight on them? Absolutely dreadful - like you've been burned or scarred. Some UV ink contains phosphorous, carcinogens, and allergens and you risk your body rejecting the tattoo. There has been a statistically higher number of reactions and complications with the UV tattoos than with regular tattoos. If you're gonna have a tattoo, have a real nice regular one rather than something thats just "fashionable" that could cause you no end of problems.

    Fookin lightweight..... And from Scotland too - you shouldn't be admitting your a shandy drinkin poof
  8. It could be a coil. Try swapping them with a similar model if you know someone who has one see if its that. If its shutting down on the power it sounds more like a coil thats breaking down. Also check your plugs etc. Start with the simple stuff and work back to the CDI
  9. Definately not. Its not been tested properly and a lot of the "UV" tattoo ink contains formaldehyde - which they use to preserve dead bodies Its unsafe, and just another "fad"
