Yer a legend, Greg!

Your enthusiasm for these amazing offroad Honda v-twins has convinced me to buy four, so far: XLV750R, TA600, AT750, AT750... and I'm shopping for one in Canada, now. May hafta be the new Dero... .
Thanks for all your help and advice during the last eight years!
Paul
PS: So there are four ATs in WA now, Squily?!~

Like a ripper, got me to Dargo and back and I'm slowly relearning how to ride in the dirt ... back to square one, I keep tensing up when I should be relaxing. I think it's just post-recovery stuff, and after coming back from Dargo on a heap of gravel back roads (through Walhalla and Tanjil Bren) I'm starting to get there ...

EFI project is on hold right now, although Grumpy has offered to help with the machining which might get it moving again. While I've been futzing around the state of the art has improved somewhat, the old MegaSquirt was about the size of a lunchbox and not waterproof, the new MicroSquirt http://microsquirt.info/ looks much more suitable.

xlv gaskets required

Hi V-twinners, can anyone tell me where a set of engine gaskets for the XLV might be available? A bloke I know in QLD has one, needs to pull the engine down (lucky man??) and wants to source gaskets before he begins. Any leads appreciated.

Regards,

joe
