It's to do with the 33hp restriction for riders that have just passed their riding test. It's big business in the UK and Ireland, supplying big bikes that are legally restricted. Once the probation period is over the bike can be un-restricted.Someone please explain to mewhy anyone would want to reduce the power of their Goldwing?
I seem to recall we had this one before, the PTW of the GL1500. I can't remember the outcome or even where the topic is, maybe Redwing will find it for us.You dont say what country you are in ,but if it is an EEC country then here is a bit of info that I am sure one of the GURUS can clarify ..I could be wrong on this one ,but it was a traffic cop who told me ,,,The 1500 does not need a restictor kit ,because of the power to weight ratio it keeps it below the regulations ,,,if it was a lighter bike with a 1500 engine it gives it more horse power ,,but because of the weight of the 1500 it reduces the bhp ,,I could be wrong ,but the guy seemed to know his stuff and the law ...cheers Ciaran:waving::waving:
