Your so right. I've been working on mine to get it ready for sale. I did a full restore in 2016 . This time I've rebuilt the gearbox to solve the 3rd gear jumping problem, fitted another set of refurbed barrels because one of the exhaust header mounts was stripped. Shiny new paint job for the tank. Checked over the carbs today (Rebuilt by Baz in 2016) Absolutely spot on still. I realise that I still love this bike. :D :D

Hmmm, jumping issues, eh.
Never seen a kettle in a hurdle race..... :roll:
I'll stick to 550s - the smart man's triple.

It's called the "KETTLE Clinic" for a reason!!! :ugeek:
Look, my paintwork hasn't got "Fish scales" :x they're "Dragon scales" right!!! However, after some thought, I will accept "Black Marlin" or "Swordfish", but definitely not "Haddock" or "Cod".

Alan only keeps a Kettle so he can kick it every morning. The cat is relieved.

I noticed that Steve, perhaps because all the other models don't need doctoring as much.
