You are bound and determined to keep up !
Just out there having fun like everybody else. I'd like to change out those header flange bolts. Happen to know the size without me having to do my homework? Want to get them off before they are unmovable.

Mmmmm! Can’t work out how to cut and paste this entire list. Really glad that the bike is so Lo Tec.

Can somebody please insert my poultry 5500m to the list? At this rate of usage the bike should see me out!

Thanks

Thanks Paul,

I especially like the transfer of my 'Paltry' reference, wiv spellin correcsion! I wish that a could make claim of some intended chicken quip but the truth is, I'm just crap at spelling!!

Hope that you are doing well on the 'lesser coast', down there on the Goldie!

Time for me to update... Since my bike was with Ollie Thiel (Heilbronn, Germany) for engine replacement and then was there again ten days ago for 600 mi inspection, I am fully back on the road again!
Great service from Ollie, he fitted very nice Brembo performance front brake discs (worlds apart from OEM discs!).
Thanks to Carina and Ollie for their very friendly and warm welcome, too! Had a very nice trip back home to Switzerland through the Black Forest...

Would be interesting to pull the old engine down and find out which parts are prone to the most wear with high mileage ?

Was there a reason you updated engine ?

cheers

Indeed.
Why did you decide to have the engine work?
Were there symptoms of a pending problem?
long shot, but here goes - did you have a supercharger installed by Ollie?
