Realy nice to read this forum. Very intersting. I bought a 950 ( year 99) with carburator and a broken gear box (6 gear / 4 tooth were missing). Here are some fotos. I am realy intersting to change the fueling system. The gear box is fixed and the machine was running but I had a problem with valve stem seal. It blowed Oil in the gear clinder. Now I am fixing it and I rework the cilinder and make some new pistons.
It realy intersting what all of you are doing. I will post some photos of mine.

Sorry I need to find out to attach some photos here. I try it later.

Welcome Oliver, looking forward to seeing your bike. In the meantime here is a pic of Thomas with his Outback (hope he doesn't mind me posting). He is a good friend of Johan (Greasesnake) and lives near him in Sweden. This is an older carbed model, he was kind enough to let me ride it when I was in Sweden in 2009. It was a flier pulling well right through the range - grreat bike
