I don't know what an old one will look like which is why I asked the question.


I only know mine is one of the new ones as it were..

My 2015 V711 Stone has had lambdas disconnected for a good while now and running it's best ever. Steve.

So it comes down to the best advice whether to disconnecting the lambda or not is suck it and see. Not the hardest job in the world and easy to reconnect if the owner feels it doesn't make any improvement...and it's taken 3 pages to settle on that definitive answer.

Back in the day priests used to argue about how many angels could stand on the head of a pin, now it's a bunch of motorcyclists pontificating on the effects of unplugging a wire. You got to love it!LOL

The old and the new.

This is the new MK1


Anyone got a pic of the old one.




Did you mean as old as this one RLO ?
It's a very large bike.If you look closely you'll see a little man walking along the saddle.

Sorry to digress, but that looks like Gastlosen viewed from Juanpass in Switzerland!?

You kill joys. I have just logged on to ask those very two questions! Just shows we must be mostly on the same wavelength. By the way, my wife came in with a new ironing board from Wilko last week. Any comments?
