Finally!!
Got my sweetheart back on Tuesday evening.
Done 215 km so far and she is running soooo smooth. I was thinking the go-slow will frustrate me, but I am enjoying the run in process.
Hopefully by end of next week the 1000+ mark will be crossed.
Once the run in is completed, will I update on the fuel consumption and oil usage status.

What exactly was done to the bike?.

On Pebbles bike we just did Kawa 0.5mm oversize and mine Schnitz 685. Hers now uses less oil than mine.

Dave, the wiseco 685 was done.
Oil consumption seems to be very quiet at this stage. Do e 2700 km since the bore. Fuel economy is unfortinately not as it used to be, which I understand. Dropped from a 450 km to 350 km on 18 liters. Maybe if I drive less than a hooligan it might be better 😅
I had to replace the valves because of pit marks due to the carbon build up at the end, so it was reseated, new timing chain, still the original doo.....
