just curious what your thought process was in arriving at the conclusion ?
I was 1,500 km from Vladivostok, I needed to buy the parts get them shipped to where I was and then still transport the bike to the US. Or transport it to the US and get it fixed there and I wasn't too sure if there were other issues.

On the balance of things I decided to leave it and get another one.

It adds to the trip IMO. As you've said it may not have been just the pressure spring. Could have been catastrophic. At least in the US things are easier to get and in all probability cheaper.....much cheaper..

Keep us updated with your progress. Are you doing a trip diary online?

Hi Craig

Great to see that the trip is going well. Have to say that the 990's are the duck's nuts, now I know why you always had a big smile on your face!

Thanks! Cheers,

Thanks Pete!!

LHS tank mounted (phew) there's a far bit of marking, measuring, trimming but all worthwhile

Relocate the seat keylock to RHS...


measured twice...


trimmed up the LHS cover (should have left the front screw boss intact on the underseat plastic tray)...


trimmed some clearance in the rear guard for the fuel cap...


and nearly finished, just got to modify the LH rack mounting.


again, thanks Pete! beautiful work!!
