Oh yeah. I've got a Pelican case top box and it'll work just fine best I can tell. A winch should work fine.

Don't feel bad Dave, you and I are in the same boat.
Slow and methodical.

The messed up part is that the new tube did this when I put air into it.

Oil change, pre-filter clenaning, valve check, new spark plugs and new water pump impeller & cover.
Also checked the TPS and was reading 0.74V cold. I adjusted it to 0.57V and will check again with engine warm.
Better put water and oil in first

haha, mine looks exactly the same. Was hoping to get like a 1000km's out of em after i bought the bike but the rubber is already looking like that after a few 100km's. I blame the 2nd gear powerwheelies.

You're a braver man than I am - I got home from my first off-road session and spooned it off for a TKC80 and it's still sitting on the shelf with 200K on it. Too much pucker.
