    Afternoon from stinking HOT Osooyooosooooosoooosososoossososss

    Suzuki are going to replace Ellens cases, they have done a fix that should see the seal stay in but they have said the cases need replacing, maybe some of you other guys need to make it their problem as well?

    So far so good for us for now :clap

    Good to hear your both rolling on two. If it wasn't so stinking hot
    I'd come down for a beverage


    Happy trails

    Bit of useless information for those with 11 and 12 DR650's.

    My bike (12) has just spat its countershaft seal as well in Missoula so that is now both our bikes three months into the trip.

    Next Tuesday morning (21st August) at 8.30 am, Lelends Suzuki in Kallispell are doing two complete casing set changes on both our bikes.

    Suzuki did not even bork at it so that is great so maybe they do have an issue, unsure but worth noting for anyone else that may be having issues.

    Hopefully by the time we come out of there we will have two reliable bikes. :clap

    Thanks to all for input in pointing us in the right direction.
