I've been a closet lurker for a number of years now but after buying my third Pulsar at the weekend, I thought I'd better 'come out' and say hello to everyone. So hello, my name is Mike & I stay up in not-so-sunny Aberdeenshire
I’d been out of the Pulsar game for the past 2-1/2” years after selling my last one and buying an Audi S2 Coupe to replace it…nice car but not so nice to work on or buy parts for. The lack of parts and general apathy from the dealership was just starting to get silly; you couldn’t even buy a timing belt kit from them any more!
Anyway, back to Japanese metal: my first Pulsar was winter green and running 300bhp, my second (white) one ran 340bhp & my new grey one is totally standard...even to the point of still recording distance in km from factory. Its only got 77km on the clock and the interior switches etc still feel tight! I haven’t decided what I’m going to be doing with it yet but I’m certainly not one for chavvy exhausts or bits hacked out of the bumpers. I’ll maybe get a decent exhaust, air filter, dump valve and do the one bar loop to start with and see how things go after that. Part of me is definitely thinking that it would be a shame to b@stardise an unmolested example too much but I’ll see how things progress over time.
I tried to upload a couple of pictures but it didn't work for some reason. Might've been me, not sure. I'll try again at some point though.
Anyway that's it for now, looking forward to actually participating on the forum rather than peeking through the keyhole.
cheers for now,
