Jy sal moet double check maar as ek reg onthou was dit n CR8E

Cool thanks, benodig mens 'n funny tipe spanner om hom uit te haal soos met die XR? Of is dit straight forward? Ook, wat kan mens verwag om te betaal vir so plug?
Tx

Dis 'n CR9E en ek het vir jou die standaard DRZ plugspanner wat deel is van die toolkit en die sparkplug kos R58 by Goeie Hoop onderdele in Brackenfell.
Ek het 'n spaarplug in my besit.
........en as jy my mooi vra dan sal ek die plugspanner en sparkplug vir jou bring  ;)


My DRZ se sparkplug was ook verlede week morsdood......... :D

Ek het nou al 120ure/6 000km op die bike gesit en nog net 'n oil change, en toe later 'n oil en oil filter change gedoen. Dis seker maar tyd vir 'n goeie diens, die bike sukkel net om te start as hy 'n paar uur gestaan het. Gaan hom na Julian toe vat vir 'n major service

Stel sommer daai clutch lever se free-play terwyl jy besig is.  :P

While the tank was off, I lifted the needle by 1 notch (Julians advice) now, with the pipe, jetting and K&N, and the valves in spec, the bike is flying! On pullaway the front wont stay down in the 1st 2 gear...yeehaa :ricky:

I need some advice on getting my 2000 E through road test. They say I need a bright and dim headlight, but the globe in mine only has 1 filament and its only on when switch is on bright. Can I get a dual filament for a 2000 E? The switch has bright/dim and there are extra wires. Its the 2 prong (not 3 prong or the big expensive dual filament from 2001 E with the 3 'tabs' at the base of the bulb)

Any advice will be appreciated.

Jy sal moet double check maar as ek reg onthou was dit n CR8E

Ek het nou my huiswerk gedoen............jy is reg dit is CR8E

Die CR9E is bedoel vir kouer toestande.

Die 2 lyk egter presies identies en mens kan geen verskil agterkom in die werking
daarvan nie.
