Got to work Andy-proofing the 1299 a bit more this week as a few orders rolled in. Just waiting on the new handlebar, annoyingly IMA are a special order here so probably a couple more weeks away til I have those but in the meantime everything else is sorted which is nice.
most impressed with the axle sliders and the new Chinese knockoffs even came with the correct branding which was a bonus

The poor Bayliss exhaust has copped it twice on the left canister now leaving a few cosmetic defects but these pads will save any further booboos unless I ball it up lol. Certainly not pretty but functional.

Finally and the thing I’m most keen to test out is the racetorx gear shaft spline support. Hopefully this, along with a serious adjustment to remove all slack from the gear lever will resolve my shifting issues. Mostly having problems not changing from 3rd to 4th off T12 coming onto the main straight and refusing to come from 6/5 down to 4 heading into the first corner nice and fast.
One of these days I’ll try another aftermarket quickshifter but still sour about the HM unit failing on me.

All eyes on Phillip Island now, was a scramble yesterday finding out my accomodation had fallen through but managed to book a beach house all to myself not far from the circuit so should be a pretty sweet weekend. Hopefully Jack continues his fine form
