Exclamation And a 390 kilometre ride home on this oil 'slick' tyre!


Damaged clutch release was weeping oil. FML.

There were not nearly enough left hand bends on the way...

I can highly recommend a ride along the Great Alpine Road in Vic, but watch out for distracting pushbike races and gravel!! 0.o

Went and visited my 675, took the stands to put her up off the tires, but I forgot my key so only got to put the rear stand up for now. I'll go back tomorrow and fix that issue.

Yeah, she got a visit from the car too though, they missed each other!

Did I miss your writeup on where you're planning to go with this? Will definitely be following your progress either way!
I'm makin it a stunt bike. I was waiting to start the build thread until my steel frame got back from badass industries.

But it's gonna be a long process. I have parts getting made all over.

Wouldn't the street triple be a better stunt bike?

Marginally.. I mean what's really different. Alittle more torq and hp?
But has a banana seat....

But I'm most likely keeping it full fairing.

I got a 2010 demo bike with 300miles new with all the warranty stuff for the price people sell used ones for. I honestly couldn't pass this bike up. I would have been an idiot to spend 3000$ more for a street triple and not have parts to sell to fund my build.

More low end grunt, less HP. Did you make a build thread? or will be doing so? good luck!
