I'm still here, not much happening as my surgery not doing too well but I'm lucky to have got this far with, a little help from my friends,, same on the car . I won't be riding or fixing for quite some time but I'll keep moving in the right direction, the closer it gets I still have the passion.

The bike will be back from auto spark this week ,the only other thing I need to do is address aoli leak coming from the clutch cover :banghead: I'm guessing I must have got the main seal wrong, didn't see that coming and I hope it's as simple as stripping and changing that seal. I'm also wondering if it's something to do with that issue I had with the little pushrod and o'ring setup when my clutch locator pin broke? I'm going to take it to Justin and get him to sort is as I'm in and out of surgery.
