just the the throttle grip should twist, my lad has one & every now & again he has to go round the scooter to tighten everything up, the pot holes etc in the road tends to shake it to pieces !!! check to see if any of the throttle mechanism just needs re-tightening.

Cheers for that,wasnt sure if it was ment to be like that being a retro bike,I will try to tighten it somehow,will this fail on mot if i cant fix it?
#3
I am an mot tester but for cars etc, we don't test motorcycles.

but if you have a look here, this is the manual they use to test motorcycles. reason for rejection here.1.f.a malfunction of the throttle control or linkage that does not allow the throttle to operate as intended, depends how bad it is , they may just issue an advise.

It's at work no way of getting the whole thing I'm afraid. I don't know if it's still there even, the whole floor base was rotted through. Other things are

no cylinder head no battery. No keys. the wind shield is cracked badly. The left rear foot rest is hanging on a by a thread of rust. All the electrics are there, the console is in tip top condition. It has 20k miles on the clock. Trip computer, fuel gauge, oil temp gauge.

just a few spares by the sounds of it then and not worth restoring for how much it will be worth,
if its still there,can you ask who evers it is if they want to flog it please so i could take the bits i want and chuck the rest!
did you find out about the throttle grips?

It's been there the 8yrs since I've been working there and the workers that used to work there left many moons ago :p It's been abandoned and as I said it's at work, I'm at home now. Back on nights Monday but won't have enough light to go check it out. There are no lights near by and is in a very spooky over grown area oO Will try get the balls to look though.
