Re: Tenere XT1200Z recall in usa

This is the same fault as in my post, poor idling and misfire at speed.

S10 poor idling and missfre at speed problem

Halfords

You look at Halfords and think this store has been around a long time, I remember it from the 60,s. but it dates from 1892 and In 1902, Rushbrooke moved to a store on Halford Street, hence the name.
Have attached a few pages from a 1930,s catalog.
