If your tyres and wheels are true It dont need one.
Unless your flat out at 150mph then it might help.
IF Mr Honda thought it needed one then he would have fitted one at the factory.
Then again an Ejector seat would help more.... 8)

dont forget to put air in them like i did   ::)

so I desided today it was too fn cold so I made some room in the garage
Back in the stable , battery off and on charge with my new gunson battery conditioner

she starts with no choke
she idles
she goes like the wind
and handles great
since the valve clearences check and gapped the plugs
her carbs are smooth as silk

will ride her a few more times this year
and will put her Yuasa battery on a new gunson battery conditioner
and trickle charge it over winter £35.00
ebay number over 50% off  361385970521

2 weeks ago the battery let me down but i desulfered it with a gaget
took 2 days to work its magic, pulses a 10k tone to shake the sulfer off the plates
that cost me £15.99 from china and it recovered the battery from 12.5v to now 13.5v
dont throw away your old lead acid batterys guys
Battery Desulfator Desulphator Auto Pulse 12V to 48V Batteries
( 151539119014 )

Will be putting her to bed soon but there might be more sunny days  ;D

Ill give up when Im DEAD ;D

I put some more air in the forks and this seemed to fixit 8)
Decided to go for a ride yesterday so i parked it in front of the bungalow
put on my safety helmet put on my gloves started her up then hopped on, nice all new suspension,
clutch in selected first gear ,moved forward then found myself on the floor under the bike.
At this stage in my mind I was thinking Full tank of gas must get it upright.
As I looked at it laying there helpless I realise I was the one that was helpless 260KG.
Luckerly I had the caravan right behind me so I grabed the bike and tried to lift it.
(never No one arround when you need help,story of my life )
With my already painfull shoulder and carple tunnel in my right wrist hurting like F**k i started to lift the bike up, After 12 inched I took a 5 second break then lifted again,took another break,5 seconds then a final heave ho and it was upright and I was shakin like a leaf from adrenalin.
got it on the stand and looked at the front wheel,thinking  there was a brick down there No IT WAS A YELLOW DISC LOCK SOME IDIOT FITTED CAUSE HES PARANOID OF Loseing his pride and joy.

I cracked the fairing  alittle near the right corner and broke a clutch leaver £6.50
SO Now I allways check for disc locks and my ones are yellow  just a bad day 
maybe the bike was tring to save my life on the road that day

they were ok even when they had knackard bushes in them
now they have all new bushes they seem to bottom
Im thinking because they are air forks i will check the pressure again but its a maximum 15psi i recall
apart from that new stiffer springs :)

will check sag when it stops raining again

Dont forget to check the ignition pulse generators inside the oil filed casing on the right and check the impedence of the main spark coils just unplug the connector and measure aproxamatly 480 ohms for each pair of wires
and yes they do go intermitent like my old ones and pack up too
have fun 8)
