After a box of new parts and a few [ok lots]of hours of disassembly and assembly the bike is sitting there complete and ready to go.To bad it is 8 degrees and snowing.Grease was very thin and poor quality in steering head,linkage and swing arm.Changed the fork oil and used a little heavier[7 wt] than stock and raised the oil level 5 mm in each leg.There were plenty of aluminum chips in the stock fork oil so it was probably a good idea to flush them.Bike is beautiful to look at but really my only complaint now other than poor set up from the factory is the mish mash of bolts and nuts they use. My KTMs use 8,10 and 13 and you have everything you need.Working on the Raga it seems like you need a large pile of tools to get anything done.Example is the the sidestand.It needs to be removed to replace the rear brake line.Three allen bolts hold it on.One head is 4 mm,another is 5 mm and guess what-the other is 6 mm.That is unreasonable.Luckily the bike is gorgeous and so far has made a great garage ornament.Two weeks till the first trials.
