Thanks for looking up the advert for my Gilera GP800, very similar in spec to an Aprilia SRV850 and using the proven engine from an Aprilia Mana 850, for some background.
For a good independent review of this bike please search for "gp800 have a hoot as you commute", the first hit should be a very balanced insight from the late and brilliant, Kevin Ash.
I bought this one in 2018 as a neglected commuter but with a decent service background.
Its been an absolute hoot to upgrade and I can now stay in touch with most sports bikes on all except the most sprited of rides.
An owner of bikes for 40 odd years now, every bike I have sold has been in better condition than when I bought it and this one is more than an exception than most.
Nearly £2000 spent in the time I've owned that bike, which was a surprise to me but it happens easily with continuous improvements that have mostly been fun to carry out.
Here are the main points of change:
> Decat Leo-Vinci exhaust system, very rapid to maximum speed now.
> New Pirelli Diablo Rosso scooter tyres
> Radial calipers conversion with Titanium bolts and ALL new pads and PARTS.
> Fork rebuild with new seals, springs and fork gaiters - Rebuilt by NRG Suspension, Consett.
> New rear shock, Bitubo as the front springs
> New chain, new front sprocket and pinion rebuild
> R&G Heated grips
> Taller Givi screen and wind deflector
> Rear topbox rails - topbox shown wont come with the bike.
> Lots of bolts changed for stainless
> Full intermediate service by myself.
4 x Iridium plugs, K+N oil filter & other filters and oils
Original exhaust and hangers available but they do add 30Kg in weight.
MOT expires in Feb 2020 but I will be sorting that soon.
Any questions please feel free to message me or call text
Can be delivered, ridden, to new owner by myself at owners cost.
