Be carefull when putting the airbox back onto the carb boot as its really easy to overtighten the large hoseclamp and kink the airbox and get an airleak on the wrong side of the airfilter. They vibe as much as a 640, just to dispell that myth but the wide ratio box is much better. Check and replace the dry breaks as a faulty one will dump fuel onto the exhaust. Not good at all. I have found some plated brass ones ...
Depending on throttle use 700km range is easy.
The sidestand is already a steel one! Replaced at Caldecott during the trip Meindert made in AU.
The other point, THX!
Hmm the millage you can get very nice!!!
