Is your the abba skylift peter?
Mine's just the standard one.

I had the Motor Mover long before (for my BMW K75s (which had a centre stand - at least it did before Mr Blind-As-A-Mole knocked me off  in a SMIDSY and wrote it off)  I got the Stripler and thus the Abba

Took the baffle out of my sc projects sc1-R exhaust for the first time . I'm not sure if i like it with it out or not? .  Only had a quick 10 mins out on it but the induction noise seemed less? .Will have to go for a longer ride, then put it in and compare, although it's a pain to put in and out .

My mate has an sc project can on his 675 and without the baffle its very noisy and I can still here it over my bike with the baffle in.

Service at Clive Woods place. Hugely interesting, quality work and advice - and tea/bacon rolls!

Fitted the machined brake reservoir, that I got for a song on eBay due to wrong part number on listing, to my RS.  5 mins work and looks nicer than the plastic Brembo one - even if it doesn't do anything better than the original.

Also had a tinker with the suspension as seems to be sitting low on the rear compared to normal at 52mm of sag?  Got it much nearer to 30mm now.

Noticed the same with my 675, the induction noise is pretty much none existent with the baffle out.

What a perfect day! Not too hot or cold, plenty of sunshine and a really nice paced ride out with the East Kent Triumph owners. The Street Triple was singing away and I was treated to the awesome sound of a pair of T120's, fitted with X pipes, doing a fast overtake in front of me. A beautiful clear road so I was able to follow them through safely and enjoy the music. It's a good thing I was already sitting down as it made my knees feel quite weak.  :001:  It gave me a big appetite for fish finger sandwiches and a strong, black coffee when we arrived at our lunch stop. Absolute magic!

I fitted a carbon fibre front mudguard and new ebc hh front pads on my rs and fitted a powerbronze screen to Mrs fzr's. We then went to theYorkshire air museum at Elvington. Mrs fzr reports that the screen worked well and after a little bedding in the ebc pads were excellent.

Keeps us updated on how the EBC pads compare to brembo pads as the Brembo pads are expensive.

Hopefully some more of this weather to be had this coming (Bank Hol) weekend?  :062: :008:
