Daft questions, but is your steering wheel straight. Not talking about 4-5 degree. I mean more

I learnt something new last night while reading the owners manual.
You're supposed to check oil level with engine hot.

Never known that before

Renewal just come through for my zzr600.
I pay monthly these days.
It went down £2 a month
£12.60 per month over 10 months.
Bear in mind that includes broker fee of £20 and tax at £9

Insurance is about £90 a year. Cheapest so far was £80 several years ago. I don't think I'll find it cheaper as it also includes modifications :)

Yep, impact rattle gun, and socket not on fully. Mine are quite good still.

Most places insist on tightening to 140ft/lb when it should be 108-110ft/lb.

Fusebox where the relay plugs in. Known failure are they not?

According to the owners handbook, they should be torqued to 108 Nm which is 80 ft/lb. This is what causes problems a lot of the time (particularly with things like the head studs) where people overtighten as they use the Nm figure as a ft/lb figure.

My bad, i meant nm. Sorry :(

Excellent. I'd be better off getting a passenger side one as they tend to be used less :)
Thanks Gilbertd

Hey guys,

Does anyone know if the seat cushion is the same on electric and manual models and also if left and right are interchangeable.

My cushion feels like it has disintegrated and i bottom out if going over some bumps etc :(
Thanks guys

Yes it would. It really didnt look that deep.
I really didnt want to go wading that deep because the spare tyre well has a hole :)
