    tool kit

    When I found this XS2 it had no tool kit under the seat. I would like to find an original tool kit - don't want anything new from E-Bay sellers. I intend to keep this bike original and will hope to find an original tool roll somewhere somehow. Also need a set of 2 into 2 pipes and a center stand.

    wonky seat (new!)

    Thanks. It did take some work to get it to fit properly...loosening the pan bolts makes it easier. But it is really fudged at the back as you can see. It's going back, just waiting to hear from them etc. The quality is good, just, they screwed up the metal band at the back-a shame. -Chris
