As already posted Arrow points up. Tighten the upper nuts first. Torque is 10 Nm or 7 lb ft.

Good luck

Yeh thats something I was wondering.. I found the ones on Ebay but some say 96 - onwards, others say 96 - 2003. Mine is 2007.

Weird.. Ah but I will look on that other site. I have also emailed Vince to see if he stocks them.

Matty wants to know what size the bolt is for the special tool that undoes the forks. Any idea?

IIRC, a 1" (25.4 mm) piece of square tubing fits just right, if you have a piece handy.

Nazza,

I made this tutorial up a few years back, but it's still good.
A 30mm nut will fit the internal socket of the fork tube.

Probably about time I chimed in. Here's my beasty:

'07, 25,000Km, came with a Sargent seat and a few other small goodies.
Practically stock when I got it. I've since put the GSXR pipe on it and have a lot more mods in mind

safari tank anybody?

Shameless, self-interested plug:

http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/150986629...84.m1423.l2649

It holds a lot of fuel but I couldnt stand looking at its inherent crapiness anymore or the PITA wrestling match involved in refitting the bloody thing after maintenance. Replaced it with a smaller but MUCH more nicely made Acerbis. Its a pity the local product is made with such careless regard. Guess they know that if you need the fuel capacity, you got no other choice.

How's that for a sales pitch?

I hope you rang and told Safari Tanks about your issues before posting on a world forum. I for one have 3 Safari Tanks for different bikes and I could not be happier with their product and service. Safari has always been professional in all regards.

When you take it of for maintenance fit the cross brace when off. Helps heaps when you put it back on.
kev.

I can understand where your coming from but even though I've wrestled with mine, I still love the practical 750km plus per tank . Apart from the maintenance inconvenience (pain the freakin' arse), I think its quite robustly made and no real adverse effects when filled with fuel.
