Prices are good for 30 days

The vendor was putting his order into Ohlins and anybody who ordered before Thursday would be on that order.

Good research. Makes sense to cover both hemispheres. :D

It is similar to the colours on the 1150 GS.

Are you planning on painting it black ?

I'd be tempted to check the valves, and do an adjustment if necessary.

400-420 ml sounds right.

Battery or Rotor

How old is the battery?

Could also be a rotor ( alternator ) issue. Do you see any change in the voltage readings when you hold the revs steady around 3500 ? You may need an extra set of hands.
