The only problem with this is that we will have to pay UK import VAT which amounts to 37.72 on top.

My wife told me to choose, her or the bike, I do miss her sometimes
My 390 Duke is in my Garage, click on it and take a look.

Hello from the Heathrow area. I have a few bikes but have fallen for the 390. Reminds me of my old rd400. Anyone managed to source/fit a Powertronics unit yet??

The standard "look" is much better I think.

Does anyone in the UK or elsewhere know of any suspension work to help matters? the stock front end is rubbish and the rear shock is not much better, although the rear is potentially an easy swap out fix.

Also, is everyone happy with the brakes? I think there terrible. Whether it is the ABS, I don't know, but they're not as good as think they should be. The master cylinder seems a tad on the small side for me. Next time I'm out I will turn off the ABS and see if that feels any better.

Apart from the above I like the bike.

Do you still have the seat cowl or headlight mask?
