    Surely,if it's strain guage,it shouldn't make any difference which way it goes.

    I was trying to figure this, confusing myself with down and up shifts.

    The rod is pulled apart on down or compressed for up in all scenarios.

    So I think I can leave it.

    Rebuilding began...I decided to do some road miles and the Road Bike track days with bins etc

    Had to rebuild the whole nose because one of the side plastic mounting tabs snapped last time I took her apart. I bought a complete nose off eBay about a year ago. I've now split it and put my Ilmberger intake and MRA screen.

    Whilst the lights were being migrated I fitted Philips w5w led's (5000k colour). And some Philips 55w +150% main bulbs.

    Also fitted some heavy bars ends on my clipons for some road comfort.

    Now for the rest of it...

    Sad to see you leaving the track space.

    Nice one alex. Sometimes its good to go back to what it’s all about (imo its not just about how fast you can ride, it’s the journey also).

    I don't get it, but I am also not inclined to argue, for the sake of undoing a couple of bolts.

    It will look neater the right way round. It will also give me another chance to get the shifter arm in the right position. I moved the pegs up to try and weight them better on track but in light of putting it back on the road I will put them back down for comfort, thus the shifter needs to be moved.

    Time spent 1-on-1 with a motorcycle is always quality time

    Just a set of tyres to go...not sure what to go for. s22's as I run V02's on track or corsa 2's. The latter appeals most l...outside choices are Dunlop TT's and the new M9RR's

    New for this season (fitted) is the carbon mudguard, repainted fuel tank (@Budgie), light bulbs, lohmann quickshifter and Oberon bar ends.

    Still to do, I need to reset the clipon position, the brake lever hits the oem plastics before the 2D sensor runs out of lock and once I have tyres I need to test the QS.

    Then its time to MOT!
