thanks, forgot to mention that... i was keeping an eye on the temperature but it still hovered around the usual 80c (summer here at the moment) and did the usual jump to around 87c if sitting still for more than a minute.
definitely lighter than a v-strom 650 but this does feel like a tank coming off the husaberg 570 so it won't be seeing much more than dirt roads.
not much else planned at this stage other than:
- make a pair of neoprene fork savers
- mount a gps
- make a small fairing
- possibly buy the buell pegs that drop an inch to provide more leg room
- maybe get one of those danmoto exhausts
- work out the best way to strap the camping gear on to the rear.
