    Not done, but bought. First batch of bits on the way for the XS650 from the states. Hard-tail kit, forward controls, springer seat gear, sissy bar, fender mounting kit, rear drum anchor rod and pivot gear.

    Went with a 4" stretch and 3" drop for the hardtail. Compared to originally wanting a 2.5" stretch and 2" drop I think I didn't go too overboard haha

    Their postage to aus was a bit high for my liking - it's based on order total, not actual weight/volume. I ordered a stator and regulator and they wanted $60usd which I baulked at.
    I got them sent to a forwarder as partzilla ship free to us states once you hit a certain amount, then bundled them with a heap of other shit to save bulk.
    Get your order in and paid for before the GST changes come in.

    although quite often you can get way better rates through somewhere like US delivered. SO you change details when purchase on ebay to send to US address (if getting something ebay US) then add small parts into box with larger lighter items and would save considerably on multifreight (especially when something like a subframe cubes out for airfreight quite bad.....

    Realised that I shouldn't leave it over a month between pulling bike down and putting it back together without labelled where bolts go lol

    Thermo-bob, and Rigid Industries spotlights installed on the KLR yesterday.

    Hopefully figure out a nice place to mount up some power sockets today. Then drop the coolant again because there is a nipple I blanked off but not entirely convinced I want to leave it that way. Would rather source a blanking bolt with flanged face to seal it off properly with a copper washer.

    Admired it's beauty, admired the song it sings on throttle, pretended to be a racer... Puckered up at certain locations in fear of cameras.
