I prefer to buy roasted nuts rather than have my nuts roasted

Rode home from Grasmere, 6°C when we set off and the SDGT's heated seat and grips were very nice (devil)

Then washed it and applied ACF-50.

Took.ot out for a test ride (see QS recommendations thread for that post)

But on way home about 5 miles away I stopped at a set of traffic lights took a look down at the mirror storks and found my cover for the integrated indicator loose! I noticed it was the bloody other side this time! I knew I should of picked up a pair of them just in case! So i tried to pick it out and pop it into my pocket. I dropped it and went onto the floor I thought NO I want to see where it fails, bearing in mind it was a main traffic lights and lights were about to change I kicked the kick stand down and jumped off, grabbed it whacked it in to my pocket and as soon as i was lifting my leg to go it turned green! Off I went!

Looks like it's the little clip part which fails whoch effectively gives it side pressure which holds it in!!

I don't mind the price of the part what i do mind is the packaging and postage for the part...3 quid turns into 10 quid...I'll pick up a replacement soon!!Image

Interesting for the Duke or for the 675?



Or maybe for the third bike he's bought to take his son out on?

Finally put the 999 back together and gave her a good clean, up at the Cotswold airport on the tuono at the minute.

^^^^
It was supposed to be sold by now, but no takers. Might have better luck selling the 999 ? though when I put her back together and gave her a clean she did look nice. ;(

I must admit I was very tempted but I thought it had been sold as the ebay listing was ended.

Keep the 999. It's one of those bikes that is more than the sum of it's parts in ways a Multi never can be.

I put a hole through my mates carbon fibre on the Arrow underseat exhaust on his Daytona 675R.... (wasntme)

The previous owner had sheared the baffle bolt off and I was drilling it out. Oops
