Default New Hammer S owner from Wales, UK

I have a 2009 100CI Hammer s, love it, chuffed to bits although the wide rear tyre has taken some getting used to, however, the lower pipe, it has the fruity ones, appears to be missing an insert, heres some pics, what do you think??? Ive contacted two UK dealers who are as good as useless.,.....





I have a pile of bikes, 4 Guzzis though my 89 Le-Mans has to go to refill the bank account after the Hammer aquisition, 1 of which is a sidecar outfit, I run a Varadero 1000 for commute year round, not sure of protocol around here so didnt want to bombard y'all with pics of my fleet. I will do if you are interested in seeing it all.

Welcome Toastmuncher- nice ride you have there.

It looks like the baffle(s) have been removed- there are aftermarket baffles available that you can fit- try WitchDoctors.com (you can email Jon too), or just Google it.

Where in Wales are you? I just spent Xmas in Dunvant/Killay

Dunvant/Killay are north west in Swansea- on The Mumbles side. So you are roughly where there was bad flooding? Hope you are able to get some decent rides in.

Yeah Cronulla is about 20 minutes away

By the way, the stock dunlop tyres are rubbish- they have a flat bottom and are too hard. The best money you can spend is to replace them quick- Avons or Metzelers are the go.
