    Will see; my mods would have to wait until I get back to bike. How did it "blow"? Fell apart at rivets? Or just became louder?

    Another option is to de-cat OEMs.

    No problems with mine other than black anodizing turning a little brown. They did around 5000ks on Superdual before swapping to the RS. 20190912_120705.jpg

    Finally managed to get a 90 defree grease nipple on the linkage after removing the whole bloody exhaust which took half a day.

    Then went to put my grease gun on it and...

    Yeah, buggar (although i used different words at the time) It's such a prick of a spot!
    Will try and fit the next one without removing the exhaust.

    Oh, buying a steel one instead of brass.

    Oh, also fitted Michelin Anakee Wild.
    They're better offroad than the standard metzler enduro 3 sahara but a little more 'squishy' on the road.

    How hard were they mount to? At what pressure do you have them on?

    I'm running Savva MC60 front/Mitas E-07 rear but when front wears considering replacing it with AW.

    Mate, I am an absolute retard with anything mechanical (see my previous post) and as such I don't have the aptitude to fit a tyre. Got the dealer to do it when I got the warranty work done so can't comment on how hard they were to mount. If I were to attempt it myself then I would say "impossible" :lol3

    IIRC the sticker on right side of swingarm which eventually got washed off mine was insisting on 1bar front 1.5bar rear for road and 1.2/2bar for off-road (obviously mislabeled). This comes to ~18/30 and 15/23 f/r.. 34/36 is too high I wouldn't run more than 21psi in front. This could be the reason they feel squirrelly on pavement.

    Come to think you down-under have no idea what squirrel is; what would be your equivalent, kangaroo rat?

    From the SD owners handbook,I find 3 pounds less to be optimum on both tyres C770D947-62F1-436D-B857-4CB9858E60DD.jpeg

    They're the same pressures as I ran on the original Metzlers. On the road the Metzlers felt more roady and the Anakee Wild is a bit more offroady.

    Downunder, we say possum pimpin :lol2

    Update on the burnt wiring and regulator rectufier a few posts back.

    I have had the regulator rectifier and wiring loom changed under warranty.

    What's interesting is the change in the routing of the wiring loom.

    As you can see on the below picture, the wiring now runs straight down from the regulator rectifier. It's held on by cable ties on the lower part of the subframe down next to the airbox. Then at the bottom of the picture you can see that it's routed down and around the frame then dissapears towards the inside of the bike.

    I presume this is done to keep the wiring coming out of the reg rec as straight as possibe while avoiding the exhaust.

    And I sucessfully installed the 90 deg nipple. Bought a steel one from Alemlube and I didn't fuck it up :happay 20191207_154738.jpg
