I did the first 30 odd km's on Dave's bike and it seems it has "effortless" power. I kept it below 3500 rpm, but felt the rear wheel break loose under acceleration a few times.

I'll have to do something to Groenie now, this bike is STRONG!

As I put on the Km it just gets better and better. Chatted to Ian who did the head from Rightway engineering and learned a bit more about what he did.
I know I have been riding my Transalp for a few weeks now, but my KLR just brings a big smile to my face. You should have seen the dude next to me at the robot on his NCX750 on the way home tonight. He opened up first and then I was gone up to 100KMH when common sense kicked in. :evil: :evil:

Glad your bike is running again. Mine will also have to be done in the future to cure its craving for oil.
