It’s nursing a cracked intake hose so it’s off the sand till I can get a new part from Roush. Patched up with glue, a chopped up old twin air filter, some grease and half a roll of gaffer tape in the meantime. Looking forward to trying it in the desert though, power of the thing is insane
Mondays rideout on the 560smr. The bike felt really strong on the throttle. I was starting to get use to the slipper.
Only problem was the high tick over, 2000rpm, it seemed to mess with the engine braking.
Don't try and chase down zx10,s on a roads with long straights.
Yesterday, all in one breath. 1064km, returned after years to my native village, south Italy Very warm but with the right clothing it was not a problem. Motorcycle is promoted in all respects, comfort, general comfort consumption. Stock side bags, traveled alone, excellent consumption
Had a spare half an hour so stripped the front end on the mrs bike to clean everything up and grease the headstock. Was bugging me after seeing the swingarm spindle and bearings but looks like it has been done recently before we picked it up. Prevention cheaper than cure… at least know the bike is tiptop front to back now.
Will get that squared away before the weekend. Unboxed the bits I’ve been waiting several weeks on for the big orange tractor. Carb rebuild kit including the mid-body gasket. Will do that over the weekend, along with oil, filters and the valves on the 525 RFS. Snuck in a high flow water pump too…
