Replaced the fly screen with a Givi taller screen, what a difference! Even with an open face helmet it's far more comfortable in cold weather. It even looks right on the bike.
If all about you are panicking then you've missed something important

Changed the oil and filter, and cleaned the siphon screen at 1000kms. I had the dealer do the 500km service, so this was my first go. I was very pleased that the bolts weren't over tightened. I managed to get the right amount of oil back in and it didn't blow up or leak, so I'm happy. Next time I will make less mess!

There's nothing like doing an oil change that shows us what we need to do for an oil change. Particularly, an efficient and clean oil change.

On the subject of the oil change and tight bolts, some time ago I bought a cycle torque wrench kit for $20 on eBay. 1/4 drive and loads of star & hex adaptors great on alloy as VERY low settings available. Use it mainly on the Spyder and Enfield but also anything small or likely fragile
