ok i'll try that then as it's looking like a nightmare to get the plug out between the frame and the engin! One last question. I'm running ECUnleashed and the Akra Y pipe WITHOUT a PCV. Do i leave the 02 sensor in place or do i run with the Y pipe plugged?
Cheers for your help man, i have the bike in bits in the garage right now lol!

With the ECUnleased reflashed ECU, you can remove the O2 sensor.

Oh man! i called the guy who did the flash for me and he said to leave the sensor in. I feel that if the ECU wont look for the sensor now, it wont really matter if it's in or out, right?

So a package arrived for me at work today...



This would have to be some of the nicest carbon fibre I have ever seen in my life. A front fender, rear hugger and tank pad from Clever Wolf Racing in Japan. Photos do not do it justice at all, not a single imperfection! www.cwr.co.jp



Now to go fit it.

i like the rear fender a lot one of the best ive seen so far...and that tank protector is pretty trick too. CF is, and has always been my weak spot and im trying to have a little more will power and not blow an entire check on carbon parts

Mirrors are definitely on the "to do" list...

Minor update, fitted the GYTR frame sliders and wired up the PCV. Waiting for the Graves smog block off plates to arrive and I will get the bike dyno tuned next week.

Have another parcel that I need to pick up from the post office tomorrow.

Picked up the parcel today that was awaiting me at the post office and received my ASV C5 shorty levers, Galfer wave rotors front & rear, Graves smog block off plates & Spiegler brake lines front and rear (smoke in colour with black fittings).



Fitted up the ASV levers which look and feel much better!





Really hate the red rim stripe, can't wait for the PVM wheels to arrive as it will change the whole bike. Will fit the Galfer discs when they arrive.

Going to fit the brake lines and Rizoma fluid tanks over the weekend
