got a set of lc400 spannies (gibson/allspeed) and gonna fit them just wondering if my bike is actually gonna run right with them on as they are not made for my bike at all. my bike is a gt 125 (air cooled, k&n style filters, ported and no rev limiter)

Spannies meaning in the dictionary ...[quote]A group of dirty mexican immigrants who attempt to swim across a river, jump a barbed wire fence, and attempt to make a decent living roofing houses. They are also known to compare english assignments often - "eyyyyy, how you doin', essay?"
What a bunch of spannies *points at a group of mexicans in an impala*/quote]



So I just guessed, black things that go round and round, had to be tyres. If you said zorts, mufflers, pipes, or chitty chitty bang bangs, i would have know what you were talking about worm


Yes well medicated :151 :151 :151 :151 :151 :151 what window did you want cleaned

Chambers are something we store frozen meat in, when the Poms have them under their beds for collecting P. Never understand their lingo? nz-flag111

I think you actually need to have grown up here and have ridden two strokes back in the 80s! I had a KH 250 with Terry Beckett spannies on when I was 17, sounded lovely if a tad loud! Sadly fell off going to day release one morning on Carlton Hill in Nottm and had to fit the standard S1C pipes back on :-(
