Hi Folks,

Just a progress report regarding my 2008 1125r for those who are interested.

From as bought, unloved, running like shit & handling like a wild boar.

To 3 months later.

Handles lovely, Runs lovely & really is adored.

Now I have a decent baseline, I can really start to work.

:yup: I'd still take a hair dryer to those fork leg reflectors and remove them. They're very susceptible to corrosion working away unseen and once that happens very expensive to remedy.

Thanks Dave,

I don't mind the reflectors but like you say easy enough to get them off & have a look, I may prefer them off when I see it like that, who knows.

Whilst my bike was with Maz earlier this year, the reflectors mysteriously disappeared lOl
