Ok. I’ll have to do some research, see if anyone in Australia stocks them, and give them ago.

I put the 70t rear pulley on before I went for a ride today, I did have the 66t on. Even with that 4 tooth change I seen a significant change in fuel consumption. The numbers are back where I’m used to seeing them, so I guess the exhaust gaskets were the problem. I’ll torque the flange nuts again when she cools down.

If you don’t find them down under let me know I’ll order some more and send you a set. Keep it safe and stay healthy.

When setting up your shocks, use the same section of road consistently. Make small changes and document each change. Start with the builders recommendations or in the center of adjustment. Keep in mind some of the action(or lack of) in either front or rear, directly effects either. Start with setting the rebound first.

Thanks Mike that’s good advice, I have been reading similar stuff lately. Trying to translate the feedback of what I’m feeling to making the correct adjustment is a struggle. Like for example is that harshness I’m feeling in the front too much compression or too much rebound? At first I thought I needed to back off the compression but now I’m thinking that was wrong.
I’m away working for 7 days, when I get home I’ll put it all back to builders recommendations and start with the rebound this time. One click or turn at a time.
