But yeah - looks the printer just laid templates down on the same graphic, rather than flipping it for the shift-side one.

Still, looks spiffing - a sterling effort, good sir!

I installed new bearings in the rear wheel. And tried to shatter my thumb while doing it. Failed at that luckily. Bearings were $30 each and the seal was $7. Rear wheel is much better.

It's because you are working on it at 2:00 AM!

How many miles on the last set? I'm guessing 25k +.....

Oh, and howdy Tim!

Picture from last week, i got her naked and made her wet. She is so clean now...

Valve setting and waterpump rebuild comming up. Doing a whole overhaul of cleaning, greasing and replaceing worn parts so she's all fresh for the new season.
Might take her on our first holiday soon.

And i just want to add BIG THANKS to Zen Overland for their quick and spotless service. Ordered my JC-design WP kit saturday evening, got an e-mail the order was processed on monday 9am.
Thursday 11.15am it was delivered at my doorstep. Thank you!

After doing it a few times I would say ~1 hour rear end can be taken of as a whole unit just loosen the plastic to get access to upper subframe bolts and the clamps on the exhaust and let the cans go with the subframe.

Will be hard to get back together tho a set of extra hands help.

I installed a set of 320 mm Pyndon suspension but ran into some trouble the front fender wont really do its job anymore:



Think the newer 990 front fenders are a bit higher but how much?

Would kind of like to keep the low fender but might have to go for a high fender.

1.5 hours including the cleaning.

Doing the full checkup and buttoning it back up will take allot longer.
