Congratulations Gabro! Love the 'red lion' scheme.

Blue instead of gold, but they do look to be forged. Blue says Aprilia, I like it.

I'm sure you've got all sorts of plans for the engine and tuning. Keep us posted. I look forward to seeing the Gabro touch on a Gen II bike!

Is that Honda F bike yours too?

Can you post pictures between the 04 RSV seat and stock tuono factory seat? I didn't know there was a difference.

'04-'05 seal it's softner, and raised... mainly in the back. look is not so nice (there's a space between it and the tail) but is effective on both confort and spirited riding position

Wow I had a 900 boldor in candy apple red when I was younger. Wish I still had it. Good luck tinkering with the factory and love the 1100. nice bike Gab

I had an '81 CB900F in '83, then a CB1100F in '85. The 1100F was a one year ('83) bike here in the states, but wasn't it produced longer worldwide?

What are your plans for the Tuono? Going crazy, or leaving close to stock? Of course these things are always subject to change... :)

Gabro

the 1100 was a one year bike here in europe to, maybe has been sold in 1984 too but i can't remember... y was only 4 years old!


The Factory will be my road bike, first mandatory mod will be a confort rear seat and handlebar!

Love the 1100. The red, white, and blue US model was a classic.

Let's play a game: How long can Gabro wait before he starts to modify the Tuono? I'm guessing the answer is 'too late...I already have'.

What will you change the handlebar for then? Isn't the Tuono bar already really comfy?

Yeah, in '84 I was only 8 years old. I started riding really early... ;)

I'm with derbybrit. I bet he doesn't get to spring without doing something to that new Tuono.

So Gabro, how noticable are titanium clutch discs?

As I recall, the plastic over the rear fender had a goofy mis-shape that made it a little crooked when viewing the bike from the rear. It might have been the 750F though. The 750's were nice bikes.

That is such a beautiful bike Gabro, but from the looks of the back ground I wouldn't leave it out at night there.:gunner:

Nice! Love the red lion too. What tricks do you have up your sleeve for the ECU? I hear you have them cracked.

JAndrewG
04-13-2012, 11:18 PM
Very nice Gabro, and to be fair you did say in your opening post that you had the Evo6. It's mid April and I'm surprised you haven't gone nuts yet. Soon though, I'm sure... ;)

Yes, did you crack the Gen II ECU?

i'm still moving home and settle in my new workplace... very very little sparetime, and many many half developed bike projects on going :funnypost

main game i'm now playing is the siemens ecu hack, i don't wonna give you false expectaion but i'm at a good point ;) i'll keep all you posted (i'll have to get some money back, tooling is expensive... you can be sure that as soon as i'll be ready and confident i'll starts selling GenII mapping :rolleyes: i hope i'll be able to make a lot of customers happy as i already did working on GenI bikes :lover:


PS about the Siemens hack: it has been a full "luky strike" of knowing the right person at the right moment :worship:
