I must admit. I don't think my bike has been as clean since I bought it (new).

I have cleaned said machine many times and bored with that so decided to fit my rad guard and my Maxton shock this easter weekend. All tickety boo and ship shape just need to set sag and give it a go. Was going to ride to work this morning to do sag but at only 4 degs decided to give it a miss, will look at that towards end of week. Just need to find some more bits to farkle with now  :084:
Anyone got some shiny bits they don't want let me know might purchase them  :017:

The longest Tiger 800 service in history continues



I believe a special tool is required to refit the adjuster nuts at the top bearing, do you use one or have you got some other device.

You might also want to consider a shallow 38mm socket?  :002:
