Thanks for posting and sharing those big mileage numbers....
I've had the 685 kit sitting in my garage for about a year, and I'm trying really hard to adhere to the "if it ain't broke, don't fix it." approach. My bike runs great, doesn't burn oil, and is really smooth, so I might just leave it alone. I'm going to do a compression/leakdown test in the next few days to get an idea of the engine's condition, Those results will give me an idea of whether or not the kit stays in the box for a while longer.
