Miss America arrived yesterday and after sorting the swap and quick cup of tea Sarge headed off on the T700 for his homeland (Wales) for the night...........

I had a couple of hours getting au fait with my new (to me) Donkey. First thing to come off was the O/E seat which I replaced with my 15 year old corbin.........

I also fitted my sacrificial side panels as the O/E panels are too tidy to leave on and get rubbed by my luggage. Then I removed the O/E rack and pannier rails and fitted my Scaggs rack and copy pelicase......

and last job before it got too late was to fit the JNS headlight..........

This morning I rode it into work so we could see if the header bolts would free up as I have a new exhaust system to fit, I think we caught them just in time before they became welded to the head........

We replaced them with some Ducati items (temporary fix) as we will fit studs and copper nuts when the new exhaust system goes on ..............

The bike rides really well, it has a strong mid range with the TM40 and the suspension soaks up all the pot holes nicely  👍

I think we could perhaps have a "garage" type of section here, a thread per bike with this sort of stuff seems better than losing it in hundreds of pages of random stuff.

I've got stainless steel bolts like that in the headers on the dog and they've come undone every time (as in when i want them to) never liked the nut and stud option unless they were stainless steel as well ( the dog came with studs from new)
