My benelli is the standard tre and the frame says it was born in 04. Could you lot please tell me whether:
1. does she have an imobiliser as standard? (proper one, not the inbuilt refusal to work sometimes)?
2. Does the standard tre have the slipper clutch?
3. why is the manual soo badly translated
4. are the following optional extras available to purchase? :-
i. benelli wrist strengthener
ii. A neutral
iii. fuel economy
iv. exhaust silencer
v. A proximity alarm - i.e. when it senses there is not enough people
admiring it, it shouts "look at me I'm the best looking bike ever made".
vi. cloaking device (for when you're in a hurry)
;)

questions 1 and 2 are serious though, also am looking for a benelli branded tank protector :D

one more queston. Has anyone had an acumen alarm&imobiliser fitter? is it worth it?

No alarms/imobilisers from new. Buy your own I'm affraid.
Slipper clutch Yes. You'll feel that everytime you pull the clutch in. A poping feeling through the leaver.
Manuals a joke.
benelli wrist strengthener? You need a special "tool" for that one!
Neutral? Yes of course. Its an art to select, on the fly only, before you stop.
Thirsty bleeder but a smallish tank doesnt help. Gives you chance to stretch though at fuel stops. Those Italians think of everything!

Klinker:D

You don't need a "Benelli Branded" tank protector. You need LAURENCE and his marvellous, pure carbon fibre, tank protector.. :clap:

Don't worry, he'll be along, peddling his wares, very soon.. :rolleyes:

ah, the cloaking device...I found that plonking a ruddy noisy SP-1 about 60 metres in front of you on the A9 does the job, he got pulled whilst we (myself & my mate Graham, those who had a wee run down the beeftub will know who I mean) did not even though we were all travelling 'together'.

His court case comes up om the 24th of the month. yikes. bloody lucky for him the cop had a sense of hunour and decided that 99 was what he was doing at the time. :doh:

Oh and bloody lucky for us the SP-1 cloaking device works so well.

Slipper clutch on a tre?

I'm sure someone will correct me but I didn't think the standard tre has a slipper clutch.
The 1130 & LE have a dry clutch with slipper
Not certain what the RS has though

Yes, we will correct you, Nigel - the standard Tre, and the RS, most certainly have a slipper clutch, although they have wet ones!;)

The LE's come with their own special clutch that only requires little finger operation. Featherweight does not describe it :D
(sadly the 1130's dry clutch is no featherweight :( )
The LE also has a perfect neutral, well almost perfect :)
The LE has no extra draw power to punters, *but* to Benellisti it is the real Mutts Nuts :ele:

What's more these dry clutches are fully adjustable :p
