The deed is done. Thanks for all the help and support. It was not difficult to do, just time consuming (especially as it was first time).
Got it all buttoned up Saturday morning, put on my gear, told my wife I would be back either real soon or later in the afternoon because I was heading down to Grif's place for the tech session. That was my test ride
. Only problem was that I hadn't bled the clutch slave properly and it wasn't disengaging completely.
Anyway, had the co-ords of Grif in my GPS and met a bunch of new guys, including Grif for the first time.
This is sure a friendly bunch of people - Grif, Dick, Channing, Russ, Alan, etc. Grif quickly sorted out the clutch bleeding with his handy-dandy suction thingy and all was well again.
BTW, IOU one bottle of brake fluid, Grif.
I need to take the bike to the dealer to get the swing arm lock nut torqued properly. You need that special 30mm tool.
Does anybody perhaps know where to get one or how difficult it is to make for future reference ?
Bear in mind, I don't have access to a machine shop.
Time to ride with 5 gears again.
