You could'nt make it up !

Decided to SORN the Benelli at the end of September so thought I'd go for one last blast before the tax ran out.
Always keep the Nelli on the Optimate and the hard wired connector plug has been acting up so have been using crocodile clips directly on the battery.
Removed the clips, replaced the seat hump and set off....you can guess the rest.
Half a mile from home doing about 70ish on a local lane felt something pressing in my back. Oh sh*t..the sea humps coming off !!
Reached round (bad mistake) and knocked the damn thing off with my hand.
Glance in the mirrors reveals it bouncing down the road.
Bottom line... damage to the paint in places shown on the photo.
Good news was I'd covered most of the panels in Venture Shield....only damage occurred where this was not fitted. Hate to think what it would have looked like if I hadn't done this.
Morals of the story -
1) Venture shield...expensive but the dogs danglers.
2) Always double check the seat hump is properly locked in place
3) If it does start to come off, STOP....don't try to gab it!!

So...can anyone help with a source for the Benelli RS Yellow.

(Any chance of that e-mail Russ ?)

This happened to me about a month ago. Was travelling along the M5 and felt the seat hump against my back. Thought I was sitting further back in the seat or something until I reached round and felt that the hump was flopping about :doh: Stopped quick and re fitted it. The problem is, the spring that pulls back the release cable isnt that strong so the catch doesnt always go back to position correctly. Whenever I put the hump back on now I turn the key as if I want to remove the seat which ensures the hump catch is correctly located, if that makes sense. :)

Quite correct!

I believe there were approx 150+ Red Rs and approx Only 28 or 30 Yellow RS???
Maybe someone who has a definitive answer will be able to help on this??

Well I have to disaggree with you there sparkey...I do stop and stare when I see R1s and other Jap bikes go by. Then I either yawn or ask myself why did they buy that? Oh, and sometimes I get really randy and do both!
