Thanks uncle gra and ER70-s (how do you pronounce that?)

That's the info I was after.
I need to take a supporting strut from the chain roller bolt hole up to about where the passenger peg is now.
Looks like i'll need to put a 5mm spacer in just to make sure it clears that switch.


Thanks again fellas

Reading this a bit different: I laid a straight edge across the threaded chain roller boss and the outer edge of the side stand switch (front to rear). The switch and boss are real close to the same 'depth'; the straight edge almost ran parallel to the bike's center line, like the chain. It's angled out just a tiny bit toward the rear.

ER70S-2 is the welding wire used for MIG and TIG, and it's a pain to type (I never thought of that when I was picking a user name). A weld shop would know it as eee-arr-seventy S-2. ER is ok by me.

Installed the IMS today an also added an inline filter in fuel feed to the carbie from the tank. Only concern I have is there is now a air bubble in the line and I can not seem to ride or flow it out. Is this normal for the inline filter???

How long does your DR battery last?, I'm coming up to two years now from when I bought the bike new, I'd like to replace it before it fails instead of afterwards when I'm out in the middle of nowhere, I'm thinking it won't be too much longer. .

My 08 has still got the standard battery and doesn't seem to have any troubles turning over. That's probably jinxed it now.

My 09 DR is still original. Sits on a CTek charger/tender when in the shed which I think helps. 14 years out of the original battery in my zx9R must be close to a record I reckon. 11 years for my Courier, just replaced my 07 650 Berg at 6 yrs, missus KLX is still original at 6 years too. All on tenders other than the Courier. Also tractor, buggy, mower on solar tenders for 7-10 year lives.

My DR was on a tender for four years no problem. Little used 08 DRZ and an oft used 10 Tenere are also on tender and both on original batteries.

My 07 still had the original battery until August last year and I only replaced it because I was doing a Simpson crossing, it still worked fine. No battery tender, nothing just ridden 3or4 times a month

Never used one but from what I've heard, like a battery charger with a brain keeps battery charged but doesn't overcharge. I'm sure someone will correct this if wrong

Aldi even does them from time to time. A mate who's into things electronic pulled one apart and couldn't tell the difference inside from a Ctek that sells for $125. The Aldi one in $25 when available.

Repco routinely does good deals on the CTek which is when I got those that i have.

The Solar ones I got most recently were from eBay, not this one, but similar:
