"Swingarm/shock/wheel off, gearbox on, clutch pushrod + associated stuff in & actuation mechanism on, swingarm/shock/wheel back on, driveshaft fluid in, bevel fluid in, exhaust downpipes & mid box stuck on for now, drive UJ bolts in but not tight, drive gaitor on but no clips, + other things that escape me. I'll see if I can find the pad springs & get the rear brake up as discussed. Also, we need a cap for the bevel breather, which I must say makes a mightily handy filling point"

WHAAAT!! You mean you haven't stripped and reconditioned the forks and resprayed the fairing as well....! Quite frankly, I'm surprised....

Ah yes...the breather doodab. I forgot to mention that, whilst cleaning it, I inadvertently broke off the little cap on the top of it. Well, now you know. I had thought it was a threaded, screw on item...obviously not. However, I do agree that it's a handy fillinng point, so all's well that ends well, eh? The G/S boys sometimes stick a bit of pipe on that for when they go underwater and stuff. I know we won't be doing that with the STD1, but I haven't got anything better to say on the matter and, if I keep typing words, you may have forgotten all about it by the time you finish reading this extended, meaningless, sentence.....

Keep up the good work.

Over and out.
