  1. Hello netriders, i used to read alot on here so its time to say hello
    I bought a new baby today
    01 Cagiva Raptor 1000
    coming from a GPX 250 (i wanted to teach my gf but gave up) i realised its ALOT of bike and it still scares the crap outta me
    A pic of the real bike will be up soon as soon as i work out how to post pics
    Had to commute home from the city in the rain and it was sooo much fun

    Coupe of yrs ago i got T-boned by a CRV and lost my ZZR600:angel: and broke my leg pretty bad, but recently i jumped back on the horse again and started with a 250 but that got boring very fast so here i am introducing myself again with a new beast :D
    So this is me saying hello from melbourne
  2. Never even heard of Cagiva but its not a bad looking bike.
    Best of luck with it and welcome :)
  3. its an italian bike with a slightly detuned TL-S power plant. good midrange (i still havent left 3rd gear) and sounds SOOO GOOD
  4. welcome mate, keep her on 2 wheels :)
  5. Hi Wypuk and welcome to NR
  6. Welcome and nice bike the raptor.

    I rode one a while back.
  7. Welcome mate
  8. Welcome! I've always had a soft spot for the raptor, very underrated IMO.

    Have you seen the X-Raptor? Basically the same but with some carbon fibre & silly sticky-up bits over the handle bars.
  9. Yeahi kno about the x rappy but I like the n rappy more.
    @mv: do u know much about them from a technical point?
    My fuel light is on all the time n I'm pretty sure it has petrol in it. Could it be water in the tank that's why I'm getting the error?
  10. faulty fuel sender?
  11. Hmm could be.
    im gonna post everything up in the tech section. ive only had it 2 days :(
  12. Noice and welcome
