E - you ever managed to get yourself a tank? I told stroke her to contact you, he was selling a 17liter...
He did,thanks-but I had already ordered a new Clarke from Wolweseun!

Milage is not readily available...does it make that much difference? The original owner apparently did mostly commuting & Stroke Her is a maniac >:D But he knows machinery & respect for equipment. I'm talking myself into this am i not :biggrin: The bike has a good feeling about it...its just the price thing ::) :) The gf in a quandry ;)

Mmm not exactly a bargain but fair price I think.

There is a HUGE bargain DRZ at my local Aprilia Dealer, pity it is in Gauteng - 2008 DRZ E model 8 000km, ProTaper bars, Circuit full hand savers, braided brake lines, Edge taillight - R35K. If anyone was looking for a bargain DRZ this is it!

I'd wait for the summer and then remove it yes  :D
The spark arrestor does not make a real big difference in power or sound so it should be fine to leave it in.

On Friday I fitted my 14 front sprocket. I makes a very pleasant difference in town.
After servicing the bike again on Saturday morning I took it out on the highway to feel the difference the sprocket makes and it easily pulled up to 130km/h so I'm happy with that as I won't be travelling faster than that. I did not test the top speed but will give that a shot with the GPS sometime soon.

What I really like is that after getting off the highway I unpleasantly surprised a Multistrada Dark when he could not get away from me between traffic lights  >:D

Centurion - Ultimate Performance. Bike was still there last week. Superb condition. From the looks of it it never saw any dirt and it seems the guy had a little fall with it as the one hand guard is scrathed as well as the right foot peg. No scrathes to plastic or anything. I can pop by during lunch to check if it is still there if you're interested.
