    Changed rego to solo :thumb and fixed a puncture i got while parked in the garage ( tube folded when fitted , failed on the crease 4200klm )
    The garage is probably the best place to get a flat .

    Fitted a Yoshi can to the F800. No longer sounds like a strangled sewing machine.
    Thanks Plinz

    This arrived Friday, so spent some time yesterday afternoon getting to know it, cleaning it, adjusting it, ckecking it, but haven't had time to ride it, but it sounds awesome.

    Discovered the DB killer from the FMF on the DR was missing. offensively loud without it. A bit of scrap tube, a bit of MIG welding and a coupla turns on the lathe and back in business.

    I would have said it looked like the front end off a KTM but the rim actually looks round so can't be.

    Hey Johnno, 27536klm's mate.

    Hi Andrew, has an Excel 1.6 rim fitted mate, will have chase up a black one for the rear to match. I got the original front as well, it has a very small/light flat spot in it, which will take a couple of taps with a mallet to striaghten back out.


    Been looking around for a twin for a while and this old girl came up, looked in good condition so jumped on it. Will take it for a quick ride today and see how it goes. Will get some filters tomorrow and give it a service during the week, order some tyres etc. Now i have it all shiny and clean i want to build a glass box and put it in my loungeroom :lol3, has came up a treat for and a 16yr old adv bike.

    Low kms:thumb. I'll be interested to hear your thought on it after you take it for a ride. They're awesome things in the dirt.
