    It's more easily read when wheelieing.

    I like the humorous exhaust can.

    Good work, not my taste, but good looking all the same.

    the exhaust is not to my taste either but there are others bits that need sorting first.

    So just back from the first day out today, great fun, great to be back out on he bike, 1st time I’ve been out on a bike for 6 months (since my accident) loved it.

    Woke up early this morning 8am, drained all the oil, replaced the filter and cleaned the metal filters.



    Headed to near Epsom race course to meet my cousin and then headed to box hill



    This is were the fun started, driving from north london was a trek, and not a fun one, loads of Easter traffic, anyway once out in the open it was a different game, loads of leg out 1/2 wheelie fun.

    Did a few lanes around the area, I crashed on mud on the first corner of the first lane



    Great day out and great to be back out on a bike.

    Bad points

    Both forks are leaking
    fuel light is always on (I've filled up 3 times today)
    speedo does not work (not sure how get it to work with my new calliper as there is no mount)
    My arse hurts after riding it all day
    It’s viby

    I had ago on my mates KTM 690 smc, loved it.

    My Husky had the fuel light sensor built into the tap, from memory when the wire broke it was always on, I think I took the bulb out in the end.

    Taken my forks to FTR suspension to get them sorted, ordered a new headlight so the bikes all black.



    Next on the list is valves

    Wiltshire. It may be full of pigs, but at least there's plenty of bacon.

    Trailtech do a sensor that's designed to mount onto a USD fork guard - http://www.trailtechproducts.co.uk/a...or_Cables.html

    Probably easier to use their speedo as well, but if your existing one isn't mechanical it might be possible to replace the connector to use it with the trailtech sensor?
