    yea it was very easy to do ... a few turns of the screws and it evened out .... a test ride will hopefully show some improvement ( smoother running) and in the long run, better fuel economy .... the biggest pain is the ol' tank and airbox on/off

    Interesting to see the yellow painted factory setting on the screws as they wernt showing initially .... some track junkie has really played around with this bike

    Not a great day for riding .... hot, sweaty and windy

    Road surface out that way was terrible ... much like the pub lunch ... awful ... 3 chips , 2 bits of lettuce and a shrivelled up , over cooked in old oil , schnitzel :commando:

    I walked down the road to get an ice cream at the cafe/milk bar and the burgers a couple were eating looked a far better option ... the pub was woeful , especially for $23
    And never will I ride that road again ... kicked me out of the seat a few times ... plus potholes, repairs and general damage everywhere from the heat messing with the tarmac

    Its down to about 14.5% .... so we should be bathing in bottled water in another year or so

    14% isnt too bad... Burrendong is at 2% (Basically mud) Darling river at Menindee is at Zero %.
    No sign of decent rain for a while.... by the time is does rain.. most of the East Coast will have been razed by Bushfires...
    Greta will have a field day with this... :minigun:

    Agree that the white on Blue looks the goods.

    Yea I thought the gold on black looked 'classy' and theres gold 'bits' on the bike but I think yes the white on blue fits in with the obvious blue paint job , especially if its close to being the same shade of blue

    I dislike personalised plates (as does the bank balance) but the basic NSW yellow and black is terrible and its the first thing I change when buying a car

    So, in Australia you can choose plate colour? ... no. 1 is the best for me...

    Not everywhere, but some states allow it.
