    A year too early to be The Best of The 'Blades, but still looks pretty friggin' good.

    That yellow starts me thinking about a certain Camel yellow bike. Hmmmm. (don't bother to try to understand)

    Stumpy stainless straight through pipe on it now sounds good specially on over run..
    Got a strange slight rattling noise between 3-4000 revs but runs really sweet, great on fuel too.
    Tuono was mental but was a real guzzler only 90 mile per tank..!

    Welcome
    Nice blade, yeah its probably down on torque compared to the tl1000 and Tuono.
    They do have much better fuel economy compared to litre twins

    It's great to see an almost all original unmolested bike these days.

    Any ideas what that rattling noise between 3-4000 revs is..?
    Only happens under load, read a lot about it most popular explanation is the carb needles..?

    Welcome,

    I would suggest giving the CCT a clean and a lube, search on this site for instructions.
    You know how it is when you lean back too far in your chair and almost fall backwards, but save yourself at the last second? I feel like that all day.

    Cheers, you guys are so much nicer than those Aprilia zone tw*ts.
    Will check out the CCT whilst changing plugs to Iridium's.
