Picked up my 350 SEV today & rode it 30 miles home.

1st impressions:

The motor's OK pulls fine up to 70mph, it's an unfamiliar bike & my bro was following so I didn't risk going past 70.
Front brake squeels when cold.
Difficult to get into neutral.

I like my bikes to be 'sorted' so it's going to take a few weekends to get this to a standard I'm happy with.

Any tips for a new owner?

Frame & some bits have rusted. The stand was very tight to fold down, a quick squirt of oil was all it needed.


I may replace the chain & sprockets.




Watch this space, I'll be back with updates.
