What do you do with the tool kit?

Thanks

I got rid of tool kit day 1 as I have full roadside assistance on my bikes.

No. Ran it along the frame inside right rear fairing.

Mine doesn't fit under the seat I have it external. It fits on a bracket on the rear left foot peg. I did have to feed the reservoir up through the swinger first and then feed the shock up afterwards.
It was a bit of a fiddle and I would suggest keeping the shock wrapped in a T clothe or a bit of bubble wrap to avoid any scratches

While cleaning my bike earlier this week, I noticed fluid leaking under my pillion where my external reservoir & banjo connect on my Wilbers 941. Upon closer examination, I found the hose / banjo union was the actual leak point. I contacted EPM Wilbers in NJ and they will warranty it / repair it in NJ or replace. So I removed it and shipped it Wednesday; and reinstalled my OEM shock. Took it out for a ride..............and...............well, I will be glad when the Wilbers is returned. To me, going from a good shock to a bad shock is more noticeable than the change from a bad shock to a good shock.

I have got to get this done. I think I compressed a vertebrae this morning!

My problem is that instead, I keep looking for a nice clean gsxr1000 to add to the garage..

Do the shock, i've spent a fair chunk of change on decat, mufflers, seats etc. The shock is the best money i've spent.

Sounds like your road maintenance is at the bottom end of the Budget must do's list too.

R's are better on the tailbones as you've got more weight on your arms and hand's.
Your aR'se is less in line perpendicularly with the rising rear wheel on a firm suspension - that's my experience anyway. The racehorse Jockey on the stirrups out of the saddle position.

I've always wanted a true sport bike, but always ended up getting Bandits or Vmaxs, etc. So, as I'm not getting any younger, thought I would give it a go.

I like the newer style '17 and '18 models and can get a slightly used '17 for about $8500 so I might as well do it.
