I sense a disturbance in the force - when you selling that big Japanese piece of metal for a lightweight italian 610 with some flair? >:D ;D :peepwall:

Never had an issue with Primrose when I have needed them.
As I said not Primrose but the factory stuff up overseas. Japanese not much better imho, they never keep stock - always have to order 4-6 weeks blah blah blah. I was actually hoping KTM would take over the Husky spares. I have never walked into a KTM dealership and not find a part ! And this goes fro anything from thermostats, gaskets, drain bolts you name it. Everything right there behind the counter  :thumleft:

I have never walked into a KTM shop and got the part I want; everything is on back order.
Current rides: 2015 WR250F / 2016 690R / 2017 701SM

No I like the Z, yes it's big and bulky and I put it down 10 times in one ride but it has a strange attraction for me. It looks the part, walked out of Midas and looked at my bike and thought yeah that looks good  :biggrin: . It's a great commuter in town as well. Plus it's a Yamaha so nothing ever needs done to it. I  straightened out all the tumble related mayhem with a hammer and it's good as new, seriously  >:D I was thinking if I could afford a lighter second bike without money being a concern it would be a toss up between :

2007 KTM 525 (that bike has proven itself to me)
KTM 500 (just as good as the 525 from what I have read, will skip the 530 imho)
2006 TE 610 (love the carb but good luck finding another low mileage one again)
2012 and UP WR450F (again looks and goes great, do not like the older models)

But yes I was looking at old ride reports and there is just no way the XT660Z will give me confidence to do anything remotely technical ever again  :( Looks like I'm going to have to stick to the main dirt roads for now.

Is Hall's still not the best option ? Just buy in bulk and ship it in, although the exchange rate is pretty rough right now. Wonder if they can throw that 630 in the mail too  :deal:

 ;D because I have been polishing for two weeks?

I put in two orders, but asked them to only let me know when both has arrived so that I only make on e-toll trip. The second order was placed 13/7/2015 and they say 8 - 10 days. So we will wait and see ;D

As for Halls, - I  know about them but have not looked at their website in detail. Anyways - I hate the Post Office and the dealer stock arrives via DHL :thumleft:

Nice  :thumleft:

At one stage I considered getting a new set of plastics in the red and white of the later models, but then decided against it.

Black is beautiful ;D
