Hi all, just got myself a S1 Lightning on an 'R' reg. (9500 miles). It has been unused for about 6 years. Got it running last weekend after overhauling the carb. and cleaning out the fuel tank. Took it out for a test ride and have never felt power like it, what an incredible machine.
Plans are now to slowly bring this beast back to life with the tender loving care a bike like this deserves.
