As a matter of interest who did you order stuff off in the UK?

Screen

Does any company make a shorter screen for the Varadero ?? I would like one about half the height of the stock one. I want my head in "clean" air to avoid the buffetting.

Somewhere in Oz would be preferable, but if I have to get one from overseas so be it.

Thanks

Geoff.

Well I've had my Dero now for a month and done 1600kms on it. I'm loving it. Yet to take it off the hard stuff onto some real roads. Just been getting used to riding again after 20 years of little to no riding. Took a bit to get used to the size but now I'm getting the feel of the bike. It is surprising responsive, a much under rated bike. The sleeper of the adventure tourers...

Quick question - what kind of tank range does the Fi Varadero have. I had one of the carb ones and it liked a drink..

Driving normal not paying attention to gas mileage and at highway speeds (60 MPH) you can easly get 350 Km from a tank and still have maybe 4-5 litres left over. If you were to try to keep the RPMs down and no wide open passes of transports at 100 MPH I think 450 to maybe 500 Km is possible at say 80 Km/hr. I have done 450 and still had a few litres left in the tank. If you could drill a vent hole in the neck of the tank I think you could add an extra 2 or more litres of gas in that top area. Just don't leave the bike in the hot sun with that extra gas in the tank as it will expand and run onto the ground. When the crazy count down starts I think you can go about 100 Km till bone dry. I have never run out but been down to 1/2 a litre. I have a 2008 EFI bike.

Some of those ads looks kinda scetchy. The "desert storm" one is listed at 10k and 15k asking price. Another shows you save GST so sorta dated methinks!

That being said anyone looking it's a great bike

I agree. My Varadero routinely achieves over 400 km a tank with a couple of liters remaining. Usually I travel 110 km/hr.
