    You should have asked, Iíve got new OEMs in my cave. £45 is a good price though.

    The wiring is very straightforward for the integrated one too. Even I managed it lol.

    Bikes looking sweet Stuart

    Need to buy a 5 mil Allen key on a 3/8" drive socket... the footpegs holding on my grab rail are solid... long Allen key was starting to chew up the heads...

    So moved on to re-fitting mirrors, wiped smudges off my new screen, polished tank and replaced tank cover with brand new one, side panels and belly pan all buttoned up with new fasteners... tomorrow purge old fluid out front calipers that'll be the front finished ..

    All finished lads !......

    Marathon session tonight... Dalkeith called me today (Wed).....we're picking your bike up today (Thu)... ffs...

    I still had to purge old fluid....remove grab rail...and whilst tail tidy was off clean up undertray and fit new rear light cluster....

    What a total f.uck about, thinking I'll get the piss easy stuff out the way and as per earlier post, I wasted at least 1.5 - 2hrs hrs...thinking I'd rolled a M/C seal or my fluid was saturated, I eventually decided to move on to the arse end and return to the front brakes later, as I removed my safety cloths covering the bars and tank the M/C bleed nipple came into view.. bingo...must have dropped fluid below feed hole !.....took me 2 seconds to bleed..

    Grab rail was another total bitch... I would have had to unravel self amalgamating tape to expose number plate light connection..no mean feat... I decided to cut through the rail base with a junior and leave wiring intact..remounting the Evotech tail tidy the mounting bolts were now roughly 10mil too long !... had nothing suitable lying around so ran a couple of nuts up each mounting bolt, nipped up in the vice and lopped off 10 mil each...had to use some mild steel penny washers to mount the bolts in the interim.... fitted light cluster... plugged in indicators..checked all operational and put everything back together... finished 12.30 ... what a ******* headache !....

    Anyhow gave her a wipe down.. I got to say she looks pretty good..going to ask them for a chop in price...

    I reckon after the service they could wheel it straight into the show room it's that clean... what do yous think ?...
