      Nice, what front rotors are you using (Brembo?) and how do you like them compared to stock?

        They're Alth rotors. Don't know if you can still get them or not. I got them on a stock clearance sale a year or so ago but only fitting em up last week. They aren't bedded in yet so can't really say.

            • Sorted out the no start issue. Turns out I installed the "Emergency Stop" switch upside down. (aka Tip Over Switch) Now things are looking up.

                It's the MagicalRacing with dark screen. I picked my used one up here in Japan for about 1/2 the price of motoworkes. PM me if you want me to keep an eye out for one for you.

                • Another shorter day done & got some fiddly stuff done:

                  Naked tail
                  throttle body synch
                  Rewired some nastiness
                  navi
                  cut down the bars a whisker
                  set PCV
                  engaged quickshifter/autotune
                  undercowl

                  Then took it for a ride. Smooth as silk. Best it's ever been in it's 81,000km.

                            • Kinky fuel line mod. Piece-o-cake.

                              Did my first carb sync. Super easy but had to buy 12" needle nose pliers to get the #2 & 3 rubber caps off. (it's now my favorite tool). I ran vacuum hose to extend them up under the tank so I won't have the same hassle next time. 1 & 2 were perfect. 3 & 4 were perfect, too, but the pairs were off by a bit. I was surprised at the tiny amount of adjustment required to get them just right. Now, if I hold the throttle steady at 2-3k in neutral, there's not the slightest sputter. Me likey!

                              Still pondering the Ivan's jet kit.
