    Love the blue, that's what I had as a kid.

    Always something interesting when out riding around the mountains.

    I haven't been able to find the answer, can you turn off the ABS? I want to get one to ride on/off road as soon as I sell my F650.

    LOL, I haven't even looked to see if that's possible. It doesn't have rear ABS, only front, and seems to me you have to purposefully make it come on by overly aggressive braking, it's a pretty low level ABS. Let me go look in the manual and I'll report back.

    Report: nope nothing in manual about turning off ABS. Euro regs probably prohibit disabling front ABS anyway.

    Good news:
    I messaged the seller and the "winkers" come with the needed winker relay for LED. Now to wait for the jewelry and then get the front ones.

    No answer here either. But I purposely did not want ABS. Not on this little guy.

    The missus wants one, they look like fun, and you can carry a few pens in your jacket pocket in case the rear springs break[​IMG]

    Man, that is a LONG uphill ride, both directions to get there. It'd probably be an all day affair, LOL. But I do typically go and get a Killboy photo of all my bikes at one time or another.

    I’ve seen those, my dad used them, but I wouldn’t know where to start

    Evidently Kenda is going to make the big block tire in Monkey sizes. MNNTHBX posted on a Z125 forum they got a set to try and will have them in stock in December.

    We have ours now at Rally Raid Products, we have been waiting for one as we developed a spoked wheel kit for the Grom 125, and when we saw the proposed Monkey we thought the cast wheels looked the same, so we will be swapping them over from our Grom 125 at the weekend to test them, if they're the same then we will be on the case !!!

    maybe y'all can get the OEM taillight and blinkers together as a kit to sell to us poor American schmucks that got stuck with big clunky govt mandated units.
