The good, IT LIVES!,it sounds nice and smooth and there's no epic sh#te cloud of burnt oil like the GN....which is nice.

Starter's as noisey as fook though, proper loose camchain sound about it, they meant to sound like that?

Took off that Y-pipe, as suspected cracked to holy feck on the outside but ok on the inside. Covered it in silicone and re wrapped it with tape.

The ugly:
Next pain was the tank, nothing will fit, so I too the one that was nearest and prized it apart with a car jack.

The bad:
With it running, and with a tank that fits it was time to check the alignment.

The tyre should be sitting dead central between these two bits of wood.

Right:

And this bubble (attached to the front brake disc) shoud be in the middle of those two marks:
