    Well... Now I have my almost color matched helmet. Didnt come in Orange so Red was good enough. Will let you know what I think when I get out on the might DR. Only $206 not bad and you can take the visor off easily to go road running:evil [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    from there it's a steep way down...
    [​IMG]

    relatively easy on the way down, but going up...
    [​IMG]

    At this point i met some guys with a 2 strok KTM and an ATV. they will supply the "entertainment" a few minutes later...

    I met them again on the peak of a hill. the guy on the KTM had a big somersault on the way down...
    scary moment!

    Nave, great pics once again the country is looking fresh and green we have had a bit off a heat wave over here today they say will be 40 celsius again thats 4 days straight and a lot of bushfires arround allso with strong winds to top it off so it looks like a bookwork day inside for me.

    Shannon, 110 not that bad the old fella that did my motard seat wanted 70 but I gave him a 100 then he made coffee and we talked for to hours I really enjoyed Tony,s company.

    Now about the kids, 4 you say that would equall 4 new bikes easy.

    My new clutch plates ,springs, bearings,cam chain, ballancer chain are all orderd and should arrive in 2 weeks.

    Shannon, I orderd heaps of things from CMSNL the cam chain was 65 in funny money so say 130 bucks, it is a lot cheaper to get it through local suziki dealer, I orderd through CMSNL as then I can see if they can supply and I know the price upfront and allso know that it is on its way.
    Paying for postage is very costly I orderd heaps of spares for down the track.
    If you are getting a timing chain don,t forget the chain runners at least the front one and left engine side cover gasket.
    That reminds me too i forget now if the barrel has to be raised to get the chain arround the bottom sprocket I better check in the manual.
