    Where did you get the QS from? I'm looking at HPS now as they're offering 10% off.

    Today I changed the headlight to LED. IMG_20201224_152436.jpg

    Looks a lot better IMO.

    Yes I got mine from Bike HPS too. Got 10% off but had to order it over the phone. No problem with their service...excellent next day delivery although it wasn't free which is a bit crap on something so expensive.

    what ones did you use?
    But I’m not sure I can use led’s with the twin headlight conversion, but might be worth a look

    I know what you mean about shipping, but at least they don't use Hermes or Yodel and charge you like DPD/UPS.

    Tell me about it, I thought it was a little cheeky. I added it to their comments part on how can they improve.

    I'm not sure about the dual headlight module. I use this little business

    https://autoleduk.co.uk/

    I've used his bulbs in my cars and other bikes. His Comms and delivery are good, and sometimes runs a flash sale. Best of all, they come with Haribo's :D

    Cheers, I can't stand standard halogen bulbs.

    They're a little tight getting the clip fastened, but a little persuasion with a pair of pointy nose pliers did the trick.

    16,000 shim check on the RR7, ,,,, No4 exaust gaps are tight by 0.02 mm ,,,,,, the rest are within tolerance.
    Question is do I replace the shims for such a small amount :confused:

    IMHO - If you’ve got it stripped to the point you can check then surely it’s not much more effort to change the two offending items to be mid tolerance Mark o_O

    Might as well get them all to mid tolerance because the rest were closer to the tight side ,,,,,, the inlets should be 0.13 -0.19 ,,,,,, iv got 0.15 across all 4 cylinders.
    Exaust should be 0.27-0.33 I've got 0.28 on cylinders 1,2,3 and 0.25 on No 4 .
    I'm quite surprised how close to being out they are ....... worth checking at the recommended intervals

    Looks like a nice garage, not nearly enough bikes in it though!

    Well if she was in the kitchen washing and drying the pots like she should be, you wouldn't have had access to that tea towel so its her own fault for leaving it unattended!!!:rolleyes::D

    Nice job that. Do the linkages get serviced at regular intervals with the main dealer?
    My old Aprilia had to be done annually.

    I didn't touch mine today, but I did receive a present for it
