    Changed the oil, mounted Alt rider Skid plate, and clutch cover. Upgraded the hand guards and top tripple clamp.

    Clearance where? Mine has tons of room. Hmmm... I didn't look down underneath. Is that what you mean?

    Added scratches to my brand new SW-Motech crash bars on the right side. She wanted to take a dirt nap. F@ck! Too soon for it to happen, but I guess it was bound to happen.

    Had a low speed tip over on the first ride on my bike, at least it gets it out of the way so you can stop worrying about getting scratches on the new bike.

    Took her out from hibernation yesterday, installed the full "Guglatech Godzilla etc."-kit. I used to have the first edition Guglemonster neck-filter with the sloooooow refills for 2,5 yrs... Well, let me tell you those days are gone, the new neck-filter allows quick filling. Almost as quick as if the filter wasn't there.
    Thanks Guglielmo!

    I gave the 1190 Adv an oil and filter change along with new brake fluid. The brakes are noticeable more firm.

    I’ve also been collecting a few bits from others so fitted an Oberon clutch slave along new oil. Lovely smooth action and it’s blingy Orange.

    The Wings carbon fibre side panels have been installed to help remove some of the heat from the seat come summer. Beautifully made just like their exhaust.

    Thanks to Charlie @charlie264 I have also fitted his magnetic oil filter cover. Very nicely made and the magnetic strength is something you expect from a Roadrunner cartoon by Acme. A belts and braces to the existing protection to keep the oil cleaner for longer with the added benefit of being orange.

    The Oberon make for easier clutch actuation? Holding in at long lights?

    Is the Oberon an easy fit for a clumsy bloke with big fingers, or does it need finesse?

    That's great to hear! I had an the early version of the in tank filter but I removed it because it caused really slow refueling.

    The OEM Magura clutch slave is already quite light. The Oberon along with clean oil and a bleed feels about 20% lighter.

    the blue one was quite easy, just follow the install guide. Recommend using a vacum-bleeder... 6B376E99-CDDA-4DD3-895C-CCF88E31E769.jpeg

    If you can bleed a brake or clutch then you shouldn't have any problems.

    Check the Oberon clutch slave is tightened up on the rear. Then remove the bleed nipple plug and stand up right with some support so that you can fill the clutch slave with clean mineral oil. Keeping filling a small amount at a time, then gently tap the clutch slave to allow any trapped air to rise to the bleed nipple socket. This just makes bleeding the clutch quicker and easier. Remove the protective black cap off the rear and insert the supplied ball bearing into the grease. They are supplied with two sets of bolts, you will need the shorter ones ready.

    On the bike.

    Loosen the two bolts that hold the clutch slave on by about half a turn.
    Loosen the banjo bolt off a little.
    Remove the two bolts from the clutch slave.
    Have some rags ready to catch any mineral oil as you remove the banjo bolt.
    Keep the end of the pipe high to stop the oil spilling out.
    Refit the banjo bolt with the new copper washers supplied
    Fit the Oberon clutch to the banjo bolt just nipped tight.
    Remove the black plastic spacer where the clutch slave was fitted and clean all the crap out that the chain has flung there.
    Clean up the spacer and refit
    Fit the Oberon clutch slave in place just nipping the bolts up.
    Adjust the angle of the hose so it is correct.
    Torque the bolts to 10NM
    Tighten the Banjo bolt but remember its bolted into a aluminium so don't be heavy handed.
    Level up the clutch lever reservoir and remove the cap.
    Syringe off or blot the old mineral oil out of the reservoir until nearly empty.
    Refill with clean mineral, remove again then refill.
    Bleed the clutch by normal or reverse method.
    Once you're happy with the lever feel replace the cap.
    Clean up. apply the lever a few times and check for leaks. If there is any just tighten a bit and repeat the checks for leaks.

    Stand back, hands on hips admiring your handy work before getting your helmet on and taking it for a test ride :)

    Gave the bike a clean up, after the service on Saturday, ready for a trip to France at the weekend.
