You are spot on !!! He says it is not worth the risk as he has found out from the past with non genuine it can come back to bite you in the ass .( leaking gaskets etc ). I may ride like a greenie wanting to save the earths fuel supply compared to him . But at least I will start the ride and end it ! He really does seem a nice bloke . If you go to the shop he has one of the dakar bikes on display which is pretty cool . In the end result I got screwed buying the bike but at least end with new engine .. I'm just going to stop thinking about the money and looking forward to trouble free adventures . Anyone one interested when up and running ??
