Hi,


I am Lauri, from Oxfordshire.
Bought a 2001 boxeye about a week ago. Still getting use to it, rode GS500 before so a serious move up in power and speed department :)
first thing i did was to change the exhaust back to original as was way too loud with DanMoto one. Photo attached.


Safe riding
L.

Hi Lauri. Nice looking bike. Those late boxeyes with the dual colours always look good. Pity about the change of exhaust  :) There are some nice light non standard ones with baffles. I've got a Fuel which just adds a little bit of 'character'.

Looks like a clean bike ;) I think that's the best Fazer colour scheme 8) It would be a good idea to check your front sprocket nut. The original nut has a nasty habit of coming undone and chewing up your output shaft. The fix is putting on the newer wider nut. It has more threads so doesn't come undone. Have a search on here for front sprocket nut and you'll find all the details.
I printed out DUDE'S instructions...even on paper they are pretty confusing...Has he been INGESTING some MIND ALTERING substance......???

Much the same as that, Got a 'Pipewerxs' sports can on my FZS600 with removable baffles, not a lot of difference in or out to be honest, but it makes the bike MOT legal with them in,
