« on: October 15, 2013, 12:57:04 pm »
Picked her up this morning  :ricky:   2007 with only 1500km on it.

Now the farkles, hand guards, bash plate etc. Anyone with a long range tank that they are not using.

Will go thru the drz thread and see whats what.  :biggrin:

Thanks guys.

Started servicing her yesterday as I always do with something new, valve clearances are on the tight side. Anyone know where I can get shims in Somerset west area. Guess the dealer never checked them on the first service  :eek7:

Next up is greasing the steering head and swing arm bearings.

Already smoothed out the gear lever.
