Think it cost R6 000 ( rand) per tank.

thebarber, great shots!
Went to the beach today. Not too busy this time of year.
Nice bags !!
Thanks. Glad you like them. I also made those pannier bags in the picture. I'm not quite done with the design yet though. They are foam lined and stand up under weight ok, but I really think they need some plastic stiffeners. After I get that worked out I will offer them at a very reasonable price.
JUST LOVE IT!!!!
The new addition to the family.
Shouldn't have been riding but wanted to try out my new gear. I took it easy rode fireroads to elevation? Here's my bike. The new boots made a huge difference picked up the sidi something boots the ones where you can swop out the sole with a tool. I put the tank bag on the rear rack it got in my way being on the front. Still don't like it there either slaps my bumb when leaning back . It carries my water , tire irons and front and rear spare tubes and a compact bike bump along with the rest of the odds and ends for the day.
Very nice bike.
I used to be in the Twin Cities area quite a few times, but I never saw any Adventure bikes on the streets and rarely seen motorbikes at all. I thought that MN is a totally adventure bike free place.
go team blue nice bike
went out today

She has 74,000 miles on her so I pulled the valve covers to check out the top end before my next trip only to find the cam chains to be a bit on the stretched side. I wanted to make it to 100,000 miles before a rebuild so I was only going to replace the cam chains then put it back together. Now I am thinking I will go further and do the rings and valves now. The main transmission shaft is showing excessive wear at the clutch basket which could explain the vibrations that I feel.
It is normal for the clutch basket to have play, it sits on roller bearings. I doubt it if the shaft that is warn at all. I replaced my countershaft at 65,000 as it was badly warn where the drive sprocket sits. Other that this, the gearbox was sweet. If you rebuild the motor, be sure to do all the updates inside to help with lubrication and oil pressure. Also check your base gasket faces for corrosion since your bike is older than 05.5 otherwise you'll be into another rebuild in no time. Mine is at 95,000 now....almost there! Problem is now, I have too many other cool bikes to ride like 690RR's that I hardly use the 950 now. You might want to check that steel band on your clutch basket too, in fact, I'd just chuck it and fit one of the later baskets, too much damage if that baby shits the bed! Check my thread, it's all in there.
Thanks, My flywheel & crank are keyed, I already did the spring and sending unit, I'm undecided on the newer balancer. I'll check for more items.
