  1. Not that I've heard of. Check the FB 1200 group, loads of owners on there have had Stefan flash theirs.
  2. Stefan will setup specifically for your bike, decat, end can whatever. He'll remove the rev limiter in 1st, 2nd (and 3rd in the UK) and 6th, vary cooling fan ON temp, whatever you want. And all remotely. There are dozens and dozens of very happy 1200 riders on FB who have utilised his services but by all means have a go yourself.
  3. https://www.ebay.com/itm/386895619461?epid=27038190285&itmmeta=01HWTX0EHZYQYW0VZPHG29EV3T&hash=item5a14c6a585:g:sn0AAOSwj~pmCEEt I can't find the other 2 I saw, I'll keep looking. And this one is Japanese. Perhaps I misread them, sorry if I did.
  4. Have you tried ebay? I see a few OEM ones in the UK.
  5. There's a guy on FB called Stefan does it remotely. Only heard good words about his work.
  6. Nice one Grum. One of our many bike trips to northern France and Belgium on Remembrance Day. Lest We Forget.
  7. If you can't find OEM grips then Oxford Products do excellent aftermarket heated grips. Have you tried looking at a breakers yard for an OEM centre stand. Not sure if you call them breakers yards over there, but basically crashed bikes sold for spares. Ebay? Just a thought.
  8. Definitely suspension then, transforms the bike. If you decide to flash, ditch the Baz bomb. There are aftermarket quickshifters available. I'm considering one as I have a Honda one fitted to my Crossrunner and I love it. A m8 of mine tried non-Honda centre stand and it was near impossible to use. The Honda one is best, makes my 1200 the easiest of my 3 bikes to get on the centrestand.
  9. Looks like a lovely, well kept bike, congratulations. You could consider suspension upgrade, ECU flash, crash bungs.....there's loads depending on your wallet and needs and you didn't tell what had already been done.
  10. Shit loads to anyone who knows their motorcycles
  11. Errrrr......thanks. Everyone is entitled to their opinion and I'm not going to challenge yours 😆
  12. WD40 cleaned them up very quickly.
