The decomp cam mod makes it so you don't have to use the compression release to start the bike you just kick it . Instead having to bring it up to top then pull then decomp lever kick past top dead center and so on.

Check out this site Not sure how much of it applies to the bikes sold in the UK but it has enough stuff to keep you busy for a while :banghead:

The grey wire mod won't apply on your bike.... Get into the habit of regular oil changes and be bloody careful not to overtighten anything, it's very easy to strip stuff especially things like the oil filter housing bolts :banghead:

The stock exhaust is beautifully quiet but does strangle the bike a fair bit, they do benefit from a pipe and a rejet. Don't buy anything too loud though :banghead:

Whereabouts are you?
