Now I know... happy riding (no doubt) Let me know how the fuel consumption is compared to the DR?

Thanks

The LC8 is one great bike.
Gee Auto nice set up.You obviously spent a lot of time in the forest and not a lot of travel cos 3.5 yrs and 35,000kms is not a lot? Saw the new R in Boltons on Saturday... verrrry nice!

Couldn't help but notice that this is your 2nd post in this thread recently jtb. Do I detect another DR owner with a yearning for orange ?

Seeing as we're almost neighbours, you're welcome to take the big girl for a spin. As for fuel consumption... who gives a rats !

I haven't yet , but , after doing 20 or 30 km on my super modified 640 Adv this arvo , My 950 SE needs some stiffer springs and better damping to keep pace , I just hope someone has done the ground work in the past for it , a guinea pig I aint . ( I don't want to think about it , just fix it and hammer it .)

Cheers Alan

Gday Gimme,
I had mine increased on the front (up to .6) and had the rear backed off a touch as there was no static sag. Both the front and the rear were re-valved. All this was done by Teknic at penrith. The front works vey well with standard fuel load and no luggage. Handles most jumps Very well compaired to standard set up. loaded up with camping gear (full andystrapz tent sleeping bag camp bed and tankbag and full tanks (40Ltr) with me at 100kg. I have to take it a bit easier but still very good. No loss of traction over stutters just good positive drive. I'd recomend getting it done.

High Mileage 950 / 990's

So.... these 9X0's have been around a few years now, who's got the most k's up? and what have you needed to fix other than the usual fork seals, chains and sprockets and stuff ??

I heard Craig Hartley has 100,000k's on his and he rides pretty hard, but of course he has full workshop facilitys at his beck and call to keep it prime. Unless I've been told furphys then it's a very impressive milage.



Cheers,
Peter.

Mines just a puppy with a little over 36 000 ks.. Barely run in really..

Decided to change the original water pump at 34 000, not because it was faulty, just because I thought it might need it.. Still running the original clutch and slave cylinder, haven`t touched the fuel pump as yet either..

Apart from tyres, chains and sprockets and cams done under waranty, I haven`t had any issues that come to mind..

The SE has been very reliable as well so far but it has only 4000 on the clock..

Except a considerable lack of testicles and testosterone.
