Hi Jannes, nice to see you here. I have done a few mods so see my posts in the "How to" series.

I have two further mods in the pipeline - the Indicator Beeper and very bright front and rear LED Eagle Eye lights. Hopefully this weekend will see one of them fitted, not sure which. Weather forecast is poor, so ther wont be much riding, I fear.

All the best

Jeff

Welcome! Don't worry to much about writing in english.. I know the feeling!

All i can say, have allot of fun but drive safe! take the time to get to know your bike! do not cross your personal line or bad things will happen with you and the bike and we don't wanna see that happen!

hello all , i'm a new rider with a red msx form south wales !

Snakeibf 07-04-2013 02:36 AM

Hello european msx owners.

I'm in Germany and have a white MSX. We should set up some sort of annual msx/grom meeting. Anyone have any ideas on locations or time of year? Maybe like a two day camp out with a barbecue. We could try to get some sponsors, host a ride and see if Honda could donate some giveaways. I live in the german eiffel region where the roads are twisty and perfect for riding the msx. Maybe Upower in france or rzracing in Belgium would be interested in showing off some Yuminashi parts.

Let me know if this is something that would interest you. If i get enough interest we could start organizing something.

Welcome everyone!

Hi, nice to see you all here! So now we have a "movement" going!

At least we have, or are getting, our bikes, so we are ahead of our US cousins at the moment! Let's make the most of it while we can.

Ride Safely,

Jeff

aahh, I received it yesterday
http://img542.imageshack.us/img542/6468/1f2e.jpg

and I already drove 400km (around 240mi.), I love it. thought its my first motorbike its very easy to drive. I read on the forum that the seat was hard, but I´m coming from a cheap mountain bike so for me its ok. I´m looking foward to the first oil change so I can use full acceleration on the roads outside the city

jthspace 07-06-2013 08:36 AM

Congratulations! Glad you enjoying your new machine.

If you look at other posts on how to run-in a new bike, you will see that they suggest a non-synthetic oil during run-in. Personally, I would use non-synthetic for the next stage as well, maybe changing it after another three months before changing to synthetic. This will allow the engine to bed the piston and rings into the same shape as the cylinder.

TWIZZLE 07-21-2013 07:36 PM

Hi anyone else from uk?

I'm in Scotland and collected my one on Saturday, after a few years away from biking it is the best thing ever to regain your confidence.

Curious to know if anyone has tried any of the bore kits yet?

I think in Spain it was mentioned they would call it the MSX125, just like what it's called in Thailand.

mopörhead 09-05-2013 03:31 PM

Finland reporting in, at last. Got mine already in may and been just a 'silent observer' in here... and somehow wasted the whole summer doing everything else than riding, just broke 500km.
