Sorry to drag this up again but

...not according to this pic of arges one currently for sale.
There's at least an inch projecting rearwards, whereas the Force elbow doesn't extend rearward from the carb at all. Makes all the difference if you have long legs. :ner:

Bug grin on my face what a great laugh this is to ride. Goes round corners like its on rails , big booming engine, i get it now:-) ... Pulls like train why both changing gears? Took a bit of getting used to after years of big fours.. Just need to tidy the rear up a bit to my taste.. Smaller plate indicators etc.. Bit of cutting of the mudguard... Anyone any tips or pics on that?? Found some straps under the seat i presume for bungees for carrying tents etc???

Don't 'lug' it in too high a gear, you'll do untold damage... keep it spinning between 3 and 5 ... :yup:

Mine's the earlier skinny one so doesn't have any straps but I cut the sides out on both of my tails, it leaves the number plate part nice and flappy... lOl
I like the standard indicators, so I just relocated them to a vestigial bit of the side immediately around the corner from the rear lamp.
If you're on WhatsApp, pm me your number and I'll send you a pic.

I'll say - but I went for THIS solution to the problem and fitted one of Rik's K & N filters and socks. It means I can now get my legs in and it's much cheaper than the Forcewinder alternative.
