First thing Saturday is to get her up and running and ready for rwc.
But really, I cannot wait for that first test ride.

Thanks everyone.
I'll post some pics once I have it shined up properly, for now I just need it to go through the test.

Does the fact that there is no electronic version of the manual available under the  technical section indicate that these bikes never break? I hope so.

I have an electronic version of the Suzuki WS Manual, 8Mb.
If someone knows how to upload it I can share it.

Passed the test no problem.
Washed it yesterday, but still need to shine it properly.
Will update with pics soon.
Oh, and someone should have told me I needed 4 spark plugs and not only two. Found two more plugs that I didn't know about yesterday.  :lol8:
