  2. I heard that some bikes had a problem with a plastic bush (?) in the forks breaking up, but replaced under warranty, according to CP Rental in Chiang Mai.
    Mine is all ok at 43,000 kms, but looking for a new chain & sprocket set soon.

    Cheers
     
  3. What tyres are you running now - you should be on your second set?
     
  4. Hola . 20, 000 kms still on original tyres . I would probably replace with same as i have no complaints or issues with them ..I have a trip to Phuket planned in November , will probably be time to replace then .but to be fair they still have plenty of tread on them .
    43 , 000 same sprocket and chain ., hope i get near that , will let you know .
    Will update re forks as soon as i have bike back .Must add that the Ohlins rear shock is superb and transforms bike as do footpeg height reducing kit and handlebar risers .
