Been hunting for a plastic box to fit nicely behind the front screen in the space vacated by my GPS (now on the bars). Havn't found anything yet, but the pelican case on the rear is handy for bits and pieces .

Your use of the B word made me think of this Fast Show sketch. Apologies for the hijack and enforced "commercial break" from your good thread and if some of you don't appreciate this type of humour - normal viewing will be resumed asap!

Even with the E's shorther setup mine still feels quite tall especially when you're negotiating steep single track. Momentum, a good line and bit of dutch courage will get ya through most situations.....most of the time decent tires are also a big help!

The lack of steering lock doesn't help.

Nope, mines smoother than Englebert Humperdink ? They are geared for higher speed hooning so if ya wanna ride trials style you have to use some skilled throttle control and a bit of clutch....or just give it the berries

Air Temp Sensor Fix

Managed to successfully repair the air temp sensor today. Heres some pictures for anyone else facing the same problem.

Remove the rubber plug from the back of the connector & solder short length of cable to the broken wires



Slide the rubber plug back into the connector (a bit of vasaline on the wires helpe a lot)




Solder the extened connector to the harness sensor wires, shrink wrap and your good to go


Yellow FI light nolonger flashing

Bike looks great. I'm considering the Rally Raid fairing too so I'm very curious to hear how the fairing helps with noise and chest drag. How tall are you?
