Oh, I know. Just hoping it holds up for the weekend of riding and camping. Then I will order a new one.

I retuned my 07 990 S and I have to say the results have been amazing (at least on my short ride to work). All the low throttle jerkiness is gone, the flat spot at 5K rpm is gone, it just rides. The only thing left is to see where my mileage ended up.

Glad you like them, I'm happy to be of service. Just so people know, I now have bags to fit all three different crash bars, OEM, SW Motech, and Hepco & Becker bars.

It's an adventure bike, they look better WITH scratches!

Realized that my dealer, whom I paid to do the de-smogging, did nothing besides putting the blanking plates on. Boo!

So I did the SAS and canisterectomy thanks to the HOW and installed a Golan inline fuel filter on the fuel line between the quick-disconnect and the throttle bodies.

Thanks for all the combined wisdom!

I brought my new to me 2006 950 home and began my typical routine with new bikes to give it some much needed love. I like to start on a clean sheet of paper....
