    Screenshot_20210719-133020_Gallery.jpg Screenshot_20210719-133006_Gallery.jpg Hey guys, ended up buying a 1989 MC19, got it sorted, tuned, registered and been riding it for a few months now, awesome little bike, revs out nicely to 18,000rpm, seems to have plenty of torque for what it is, and i am 104kg and it still goes well. I put Metzler M5's on it, 110/70/17 and 140/70/17, i am very happy with these tyres, great in the wet. Got a braided brake line coming for the front. Wound the rear shock up. Thats about it so far.

MC19 with MC22 carbs and pod filters, boys in the shop are tuning it, will see how it goes when i get it back. I put pirelli Rosso 2's on it. It has a switch for thermo fan on LHS. Cant wait to give it a good run.

    Welcome - great little bikes.
    Pods generally do not run at all well on CV carbs. It will be interesting to read your comparison between the two bikes.
