---- bike's still stopped. what a lovely year. (battery's probably fucked)
winter is starting, there's the worst rainstorm of last 30 years, it's cold, rainy and I won't unmount the bike for umpteenth time.
local track is definitively closed for failure first... yesterday it was obliterated by the storm. all buildings were literally pulverized
Yesterday I reinstalled stock rear suspension and today I get the ohlins to the assistance. I now wait for good news I also left the xv950 for the 30.000 kms maintenance. And buyed a new chain for speed triple. And a new battery for the msx. What else... 18° c here
Absolutely not. Listen there's mafia in Italy, right? Mafia isn't related to criminals only, it's a behavior. For example, If you buy a bike in a region you can't service it in another region, you will be treated like shit and with contempt.

I'm a little bit tired... another modding session today....
installed new, longer oil line
greased the chain
oiled the takegawa filter
fosfatized the exhaust, then washed & treated with wd40
smoothed the stock bar's edges that i did cut previously
drilled the new holes to fit the instrument nipples. failed approx 3 mm too external. no problems with aliexpress bar ends anyway (throttle works perfectly)
assembled the new fairing with transplantig all the boltery (i miss a few..)
investigated the front indicator holes... i have to install two classic ones and i have the eye shaped plastic plates but i lost one of two stock metal supports.. shit
dinner with gratin oysters + grilled toasts with lumpfish eggs

backstory on me... been into the import scene god since I was young. I remember having the first issue of Import Tuner lol... parents had got me a 96 GSR when I was 15 almost 16... here's about 10 years later just before I sold her... It was time for me to grow up, and I bought a house when I...
Just finished installing the 181 neo kit with crank. Bike doesn't want to idle. It has a hard time starting and can hold 4k rpm with the throttle cracked open, but dies once I let go of the throttle. It will have a hard time starting after that.

Nectar's Koso 170 4V Build
Hi All, this thread documents my 2015 build that I started in December of 2017. I bought it with 700 on the clock, with a few mods like a slip on, flushmounts, and some other cosmetic upgrades. I normally do a poor job of document my bike builds and always end up...
