    Yes, it does. Air filter oil has that color. At least mine does. I suppose you could open it up and squeeze/drain it a bit. Careful when tightening the cover bolts. There have been several reports on this forum of them being easily over tightened and spinning loose inside, resulting in a major pain in the neck.

    Hopefully won't be on terrain where you have to stand.

    After a 60mph deer touchdown I personally developed dislike to riding in the dark, so this is usually not a problem, but as saying goes it isn't a problem until it is. Wrong turn, unexpected terrain, flat can put you where you didn't expect to.. be safe.

    I totally agree, i don't ride the dark for fun.
    But it is also my commuter, and that means early mornings are dark or when i go home it also gets dark in winter times.
    That's why i made it better for dark rides. ( installed a 2300lumen LED on the front, cause the original light is a joke )

    Has anyone had an issue with the shock absorber adjuster jabbing your left calf while standing? Is there anyway to rotate or relocate this adjuster?

    Thanks, but won’t that interfere with the shock movement? Or gas tank? Seems kind of tight in there. I will give it try later.

    What year is yours? The earlier ones had adjuster mounted in such way that it would stab into calf; the trick was to undo and mount it slightly deeper.. like they did on later ones.

    EDIT: skip to 5:30 mark. IIRC Paul had an earlier vid on preload dial but I can't find it




    Here it is

    There were a couple ozzies back in 2018 which had fuel pump failed due to filter clogging and overheating in TJ due to bad fuel.. knowing that I put fuel sock. Other common fuel pump failure is contact corrosion/burn but I have not heard about that on SWM.. typical on aging BMWs. Also usually not a good idea to run tank dry often as it can cause pump overheating too.

    Bought a new battery (MotoBatt MBYZ16H) yesterday as the original had croaked after 2 years of on-and-off top-up charging. Bloody tight fit! But she cranked-over ok and burst into life no problem. I'll get out for a run in the next couple of days.
