Re: Yet another MT newbie!

Welcome Jon,

The MT350 moved me around at 60pmh, loaded up with winter camping gear, but don't take on the boy racers. Having said that, it's now been upgraded to 405cc, so gets there a bit faster now.

Re: New member

Just a few questions: - You mentioned a modification to the LH strut - could you be a little more specific and send details? - I have been wondering if the two rear struts might be jettisoned: the frame looks strong enough to carry rear box panniers without them. Any comments on this? - And with th...

Re: New from Switzerland

Welcome to the forum. The MT350 is a bit different to your other H-Ds, but will put a smile on your face.

Re: Introduction

Welcome Stuart and hope you get it registered soon. It's a good bike to learn about bike mechanics, as they are relatively simple to take apart and rebuild, but best to avoid dismantling the engine at this stage. If you have engine problems, contact Gary at Sportax (minter on the forum). Have a look...

Re: 3 row no. plates

I see this topic has shifted onto other chat, but just in case anyone does read it: Having watched the MOT testers screen, there is a section that displays legally allowed number plates, so the tester should check it. As said earlier, although you now can't buy a legal 3 line plate, as they won't ha...

Front and rear Avon Distanzia tyres

I've replaced the wheels on my MT350 and fitted new tyres, so I now have a pair of front and rear Avon Distanzia tyres for sale. These are classified as "Adventure, trail, and touring". Good on tarmac and trails, but not too good on mud or wet grass. The front has 3.5mm tread left and the rear has 5...

Re: Rejoined and looking for advice

Welcome to the forum. We do have some members in Germany, they may be able to offer some local advice. It is very much at the top end of price, but does look to be in good condition. The dealers website does show the MOD AF654 form with service date and disposal details, this is required to register...
