Yeah, I'm good. Sore neck and back, but that's it. Shop called me today and said the bikes looks pretty good too. No major damage.

Oil change, new fork seals, cleaned the clutch oil jet and replaced the stearing head bearings. Wow what a difference - should have done the bearings 5k miles ago.

Buttoned Orange Satan back up thinking that I really should hold off until I figure out what the small oil leak is behind the clutch slave...

Woke up at 3am this morning and realized that the oil leak is probably the pushrod seal. Sure would have been a good idea to replace it while the slave was off and the cranckase was empty - lesson learned.

Installed Safari tanks, 16/45 gearing and Super Plush suspension. It's pretty darned ugly with those big tanks but I'm looking forward to some long weekend rides. Trying to source some adhesive grip panels for knees that can be cut to shape- any ideas?

You need to get your frame to fast track or similiar. Make sure it isnt bent

Yeah, I get the feeling the shop took all of 5 mins looking at the bike. I need to take it somewhere else for sure.

Skateboard shop. It's called grip tape. Amazon has it here it is sticky as hell, and won't peel off.

Or check this out

Or you could just Armour-All the shit out of it and see how long you can hold on.

I'm happy I have them- and I'll sure appreciate the range I'll get with them...but I can't help to think there must be a massive mark up on these things. They look good in pictures but when you see them up close there are all sorts of imperfections and the fit and finish isn't what one might expect for $1500+. I say this knowing nothing about the molding process- but I would think they could sell these for half the price they are and still make out pretty well!

Rotopax mount Question

Hey buddy,
How is the rotopax system working out for you? Thinking about doing the same to my 950.

Hum... I wonder if it's color specific. I saw some black ones and they looked good.
I wonder what cost is on these things.
I was told that you can see the fuel level even in orange. Then i was told you couldn't. Can you see your fuel in yours?

~~~I've had several bike frames measured in the past by GMD Computrack in Atlanta and agree, this needs to be done, regardless who pays the bill but, make sure you remove all of the tupperware to make it easier for them to measure


Best,
