    Gent's

    In 3 weeks I'm moving to Oz(Sydney) and taking the Nelli with me,I need to book her in for a service before I ago and she needs new rubber.

    My questions is to the guys in Oz, what rubber would you recommenend for over there? are there any problems with getting nelli's serviced out there?

    Cheer's all.

    Hey Dazza, welcome to Oz.
    I'm not certain, but I reckon you & Tax will be in a very exclusive club. You might ask Tax where he gets his serviced in Sydney.
    Personally, I've never had any problems with servicing in Canberra. I've always done it myself.
    Give us a hoy when you get here so we can catch up. Could arrange a meeting of the "brethren".
    As far a rubber goes, Pirelli Diablo Strada on one set & Corsa III on the other.

    cheers
    Errol

    Oh well, Come if you must

    Hi Dazza,

    Mine couldn't have gone on being the only Nelli in Sydney for too much longer

    I had a good 4 year run from 2003 when I bought the Tre.

    And it takes a Brit to be the next one who has one in Sydney.

    So welcome

    It will be nice to have some company and I look forward to some rides together.

    There are a couple of places that you can take the bike to for servicing.

    Drop me a PM once you arrive and let's take it from there.

    Oh! bring as many spare parts as you can, if you can get them cheaper over there as it will save you some $ in the long term.

    Cheers
    Tax

    Sorry forgot about the tyres

    I found the the Dunlops it originally came with gave me the most mileage.

    Since then I have had two sets of the earlier Michelin Pilot Powers, not 2CT.

    Engenia has had good results with Pirelli.

    Tyre prices are around $300 Oz Dollars per tyre.

    Go with an Oil that around 10W-50 if possible.

    You are coming in our Summer which is around 40 -45 degrees where I live and the Nelli does not like that kind of dry heat.

    PM me if you need to check on more specifics.

    regards
    Tax
