comfort grip or dipped grip

One review I saw recommended the comfort grip rather than the simple dipped grip. They look a bit more bulky though for a tool roll, anyone tried both?

G'day Den

Now I may be wrong :1drink, but my understanding was that we were going to turn west after 133km and head to Plumridge Lakes, I don't want to go via Neale Junction, that would be even further........

Fuel and distances

Just did some checking and it's 707km from Rawlinna to Laverton, via Plumridge Lakes and Lake Rason. On my bike (DRZ400) allowing 6l per 100km, that's 42.5l. If there's no fuel at Rawlinna that's...

Question for numbers

G'day,

Why did you go for the SH775 kit not the Mosfet kit, was it because the Mosfet is still a shunt rectifier (albeit a good one)? How much bigger is the SH775 series r/r?

Wild guess, but

It's not the screw that holds the pivot for the float in place is it?

This could be crap as I've just realised that 's probably a BST carbie :D

A few more tyre ideas

I like the XCMH for fanging through the bush, but put a Bridgestone ED78 (120/100) on for longer trips, not quite as grippy, but wears really well. I'm also about to try a Starcross HP4 (90/100 x 21)...
