Re: The Royal Enfield Himalayan ,great value.

have you had a look at the Motoz Tractionator GPS. I like what I see. Still at 8000kms still on the OEM MT60's but will consider them at change time.

Re: The Royal Enfield Himalayan ,great value.

My that's bad!! :( Might be the seal at the top of the intrument cluster letting water in. A little silicone sealer rubbed into the joint between the front and back covers might help. Worth a shot. Wonder how the instrument lenses seal? Holes in the back would not be wise as the wind will drive wate...

Re: The Royal Enfield Himalayan ,great value.

Strange I've never had the clocks misting up and I've had it in pretty heavy rain for hours. I plugged up where the harnass plug into the back of instrument cluster pretty much from day one. I've only had mine from November, so our summer without very low temperatures. Will be interesting to see if ...

Re: The Royal Enfield Himalayan ,great value.

Had a morning riding mine today and a couple of niggles, clocks slightly misted but nothing too problematic. But one thing that did bother me was a couple of times it cut out whilst coming to a stop and then once when I pulled away. Bit disconcerting but only 500 miles on it so far, so maybe it nee...

Re: The Royal Enfield Himalayan ,great value.

Either you guys pay a lot more for the Himalayan or the Versys is very cheap there but here in NZ the Versys is 28% more expensive than the Himalayan. There is really nothing to compete against the Himalayan here in the price bracket. Even the Chinese Benelli is up there in the same price bracket as...

Re: The Royal Enfield Himalayan ,great value.

I find it interesting how the perception is that higher hp is needed for 70mph. My 2006 Vespa GTS250 runs 70mph easy all day, even in headwinds and inclines. And hey with the Falco split screen it even runs better in head winds. At speed it is all about the aerodynamics. My SYM Citycom 300i before t...

Re: Greetings from the south island of New Zealand

Anybody know why my photos get rotated when I put them in a post. Both these photos appear right way up on my computer in different programs. Something somewhere I'm missing?

Re: New member.....

Welcome Speedy. I have a Himalayan too. Done 7500 kms in the last 2.5 months on it in all kind of terrain, even dropped it in the middle of a river crossing. :roll: It is a gentle sweet well balanced bike and I would describe it as a "gravel" bike. Great for exploring at a leisure pace which in my c...
