    Re: Today was Battery day

    Bugger. At least you have some local-ish support so that’s a win.

    Re: New Brake Callipers, Recall?

    Sounds like the gen 4’s have the same rubbing issue with the wire harness under the tank mount as the gen 3’s?

    Re: Lever guards

    Ahh right, yeah we have some sort of cradle thing that goes over the top down here to secure the battery in place. Guess that’d have to be omitted with the larger battery.
