  1. Just arrived on sale or return for a regular customer, a 58 1098S with 3,400 miles, belt service this year. Comes with a few bits and pieces like race exhaust and rear sets with the original parts in a box. Fitted with a 1098R nose cone (original not included). Apparently if you want a 1098, this is the one to have. Top end pricing though at £9500 and not sure if that is negotiable. Andy
  2. I was asking about purchasing a 1098/1198 yesterday! You said there were some potential issues with 1098 main bearings and gearboxes. can you explain more? Or is a 1198 a better choice + a bit more power/torque?
  3. Plenty have had issues with both engines and gearboxes. Steer clear of a quickshifter or track mule and they seem fine with good, regular oil changes and good service checks.

  4. As Bradders has said, whilst there were common failures, not everyone had that experience. Using a QS on the 1098 was definitely something to be avoided. Choices, choices, good examples are few and far between, Andrew is already getting enquiries and it's been on the Web site 2 minutes. This is not a Moto Rapido bike so not sure if finance or warranty is part of the deal. Andy
