Look up Kiwi MT-01s
Sorry but i couldn't trace the link for KIWI MT01 ! Pls help me. Also any place in Delhi/mumbai where such jobs can be attempted. i wonder how the Yahoo group just dies away.I had been receiving some shady mails from that group instead of the regular MT01 news & development etc so i unsubscribed it anyways.

Are there any more MT01 clubs on NET . I would love to join them.

Best wishes man. A little confidence slip was what happened last time. Let it not take over you this time But don't lose the fun confidence either. It's about living life. I wish my dad agrees to buy one for me .. fingers crossed since he knows how I rip my bullet.

JB, How about this? Flickr Photo Download: Yamaha MT-01 militarisée !

HEY Gurpratap, I am sure you father will soon agree to your buying an MT01 ! for how long can he ignore wish of his puttarji ... I too had to make lots of regular pressrised requests to my father way back in 1994 to buy me a shogun (in my teens) whch he relutantly bought. No wthat i earn for my self so i had persuade my wife to allow me buy a MT01 She too reluctantly gave up & I bought my First SUPER BIKE !

BTW the imae sent by you was hellova one ! WOAH how has the guy militarised the whole concept bike. If it went more on with it then for sure We will see more of Mt01's in Armed forces than bullets. After all MT is a superpower-full bike ! Hey do you have more of MT01's pix It is always a pleasure to see read hear feel more on MT'01s !

( i forgot to mention about another Yammie R1 some Blue COLORED bike. It was at same repair centre ! it had major accidental repairs there. the front fork was broken in some pieces the wheel was in bad condition. The fairing was broken too. Hope the the rider was safe ! )

Attached are two pix of my bike in repairs. Pardon BAD pix quality (xperia pix)

But I know he'll probably refer to my latest marks sheet before deciding anything

If I'm getting something it'll be in end of year, though. "something" because I tried to prove MT01 to be more practical than racing genre R1s, Hayabusas, etc., however he then counter insisted on 4 wheel machines being more practical than this. Lol. I'll continue dreaming until then.

It looks best in stock shape. Any mods, except minor utility stuff, with significant change in looks bring the bike close to wacky jobs borders.

Btw, this might interest you regarding some modding: http://www.gsg-mototechnik.de/09y-mt01/mt01.htm

Well Said, actually the marksheets (esp the dreaded RED ones, thankfully its past me almost 18years back) are actually one of the best discovered tool/barometer by the parents when we demand-fully request such costly toys ! Now that i dont have marksheets to refer to I still i have to check my Mark sheet prepared by my CA (Accounts balance sheets) before making any such decision.

I am very keen on get some mods done like Saddle abgs (aka HD types well one can take out me from a HD but cant take out the Deep rooted HD image from me )...I feel it shall add more to mean f the Looks MT01 sports.

you are true to the extent as for more usability between sports bike against the Cruiser bikes. The sitting posture is more comfy on say MT01 as when ever i ride my bro's R1 i have sore palms & aching back. he simply loves his ride but i have been able to develop least love for the riding posture. i do like the pickup etc on R1 but still i feel king when i rumble thru crowds (till MT01 didn't crash hopeful soon by this month end i will get it back) with Mt's throaty bassy Roar. I see that most R1 owners do complain about the look alike FZ15 ! man i have seen so many of them around town that i have to stare on the rear wheel (190type) to know if its actually an R1. But with MT01 there is no competition but from another Mt01. i am yet to meet another Mt01 owner in Delhi. Seems like when someone on this forum suggested me not to sell my (rather limited edition) Mt01 after i had the crash was right. i am feeling much better & confident to ride safe & have more fun now.
