Thanks paochow, followed you over from TT, sorry to hear about what happened, esp with everything you have contributed. I am still hopeful that things might get worked out.

14K is recommended, but I'd check them much sooner. If it was my bike I'd crack the head at 1K just to give it a look see. It's quick and relatively easy to do and will give you a baseline for later on. Mine were on the tight side of spec at 6K, before I swtiched to hotcams, although I have been told I'm a bit throttle happy.

As for the TT stuff. I like it here much better. Lets leave it at that until my website is up.
