    Is it a block or a liquid?, I know there's different forms of the stuff to chuck in the tank? :wink:

    Yep.
    It itself has a shelf life though. One product has 2 years.

    Hey thanks guys, this may well save me a LOT of kicking to get the old girl going in future. She doesn't like it when I neglect her for too long and makes me pay with "kick start leg":lol3

    It's also good to add to mowers, chain saws and stuff when they don't get used for a few months (ie. Melbourne in winter!).

    The only alternative is to drain stale fuel and dispose of it responsibly.

    If it sits for a few months it goes dark - can't mistake it.

    The radiator is OEM suzuki, got it up from Western Motorcycles in Penrith, ordered on Monday, posted Wednesday, arrived Friday, very well packaged and in good nick. Just need to get a rad guard to minimise the risk of having to part with another 600 bills. Been getting all my suzuki genuine stuff from them for a while now, but get all my service parts, tyres and honda stuff from Morris motorcycles in Orange, both shops look after me very well.

    Dropped a screw driver which rolled under the red bitch. Swooped to pick it up and came up with malice under the bars and near tore my f%^&$ng ear off.



    That's what I did with my bike today.

    3250 km of slab. Just started to sing but not much sign of wear.
    Hard wearing but the return dirt sections will prove it's worth.

    Depends on age, if it was me - it would be Imperial ['56 model], anything after '75 is metric! :lol3

    K60 Scout.

    Sounds good Tenerrod, that's on the XT660Z, what weight do you reckon in touring mode? :deal
    XS650 weighs in at 214kg, in touring mode with gear & rider would be closer to 380kg, gotta allow for weight & type of bike :clap
