    Sweet. Let us now if you hear any more details.
    Now I just need to re-read the appropriate threads and get motivated to do the mod.
    Thanks

    So what did I do... I tightend the chain, cleaned it and lubed it. After my 600km ride yesterday I saw that my bar risers weren't straight so I solved that problem too. Oh and I mounted that TT guard for the break flued.

    Today, I ordered a couple more yards of CF, finished the vacuum chamber, finished setting up my wheel balancer/truing stand (garage gansta style), cut out some CF pieces for the mudguard I will make tomorrow night, sanded down my first mudguard, caught a mouse in a bottle, then let him go, wrapped some presents, and now I am back outside to make a home made spoke wrench.

    Last week, fed up of my car's poor carrying capacity and cleaning pine needles/sap off the upholstery, I decided to carry my Christmas tree on the back of my GS. Lashing it down across the top of my vario panniers in the expanded position, using a pair of rocks straps, it was fine. I have video.

    Installed and Akropovic Muffler and Xchallenge cartridges with Ohlins 55g springs and 7.5 weight oil at the Ohlins recommended 60mm air gap, crazy windy today (30-40mph gusts) so no chance I'm riding it but the initial around the block a few times ride looks promising, much less dive then the Hyperpro springs it was replacing. can't wait until Monday to hit my usual trails to see how it handles:clap

    Installed my TT front brake protection thingy, changed my tires for TR91 and changed my front brake pads. Then took it to a 1300kms ride to surprise my mother for Xmas. I love that bike :lol3

    Installed my Xmas gift. Pivot Pegz MKIII. Now I think a longer shifter is in order.

    Since we got 7 inches of snow (and salt) right after I put them on, I haven't ridden with them yet. :( But they're already a huge improvement just sitting on the bike. The rear brake pedal was way too low, but now it's perfect.

    However, I made the comment about getting a longer shifter because it's now a bit harder to get my foot under the shifter because they're so wide. The fact that they pivot is a huge help, but I still think a longer shifter is in my future.
