Why it would be a really silly idea to use Yak Fat in an 8V…….

Pete Roper on 10w60 oil:

OK, so I’ve got a warranty job coming in. A bloke with an 8V Griso with a pinhole pourosity in the head casting so it’s a new head for him. This actually arrived within a fortnight, I was very impressed. while I had a new, clean, head in my grubby little mits I tought it would be a good time to have a squizz at it and find out what’s what.

So you wanted to know about a V7c from someone who put some miles on it…

Christiaan on his V7C:

Things I like about The V7Classic:

great brakes, though the rear brake is a tat too good

great mileage: normally 4,8liters per 100Km, have done 4,2/100

Power: 48Hp IS really enough, most because the max torque is there at a mere 2500RPM (I know they state max torque at 3600RPM, but it is there sooner, believe me). The engine likes to be revved. above 4000RPM lies most of the fun.

The gearbox took about 1000Km to be broken -in, after that it is your perfect switch-gear, none of that agricultural hard shifting. Smooth as butter. Some report it is hard to get into first gear when the engine is still cold, the trick here is to set the “play” on the clutch-lever as tight as possible, and you’re fine.

Fuel injection can not be improved, even at -6Centigrade the V7 starts right away.

Small trick: although they advise otherwise: give a little throttle when cold and push the start button: she fires up right away! Idle was a bit wee at first, but after the latest axone-software-update, it’s simply as it should be: darn good, never misses a beat.

The handling is superb: whether it’s city-traffic or touring where the twisties are. As long as you’re not trying to achieve warp-speeds. If you do, you’ve bought the wrong bike.

The looks: it’s a head-tuner

Sound of the exhausts: beautiful music comes out of the stock pipes, after all, they are Lafranconi’s, right? I can compare with mine (after 15,000Km) and a brand new V7c, it struck me how “flat” the new ones sound. The mufflers really open up after some time.

very easy to maintain, even the air-filter is easy accessible without having to undress the bike

comfy seat, plenty of room to reposition yourself. And no saddle pains, not even after a 10 hour ride.

A complete and usable set of tools come with the bike.
