I've always interpreted "adventure" as a union of dirt bike and touring bike, but there has always been a wide continuum. Put a 17/17 big bike like the Multistrada at one end, and the 640 Adventure...

Hmm, when we did the water pump, I replaced the oil and filter. The level in the overflow has been pretty consistent since the rebuild. I'll try this weekend to pull the filter and look at it.

Yeah, this is my key question. I don't want full S height--i.e. 265mm, but 210 seems a bit skimpy. 230 was perfect. Maybe I'll email Slavens or Superplush, and see what they know.
