Booked her in today for her 1st service with a local very reputable bike spanner twirler @doncastermotorcycles 20 quid cheaper than the dealer so quite chuffed

Also had a play with mounting and repositioning of the speedo. The oem position I've found to be too far back so to take a look at it means taking my eyes off the road.
So fashioning a new hanger using the mount under the polished yam cover above the light now gives a great "glance" position without having to look away from the road.

Is the yam Aftermarket one which I managed to get as part of the deal = my Bro-in-law had the exact same bike over in the Isle of Man but went with the solid silver one which looks amazing

Just under 700 fella = put it away in the winter so just clicked over the service marker miles in the last few weeks
Ah right.... yeah this weather is pants, although managed to get out on both mine a week ago...great to have a blast though. An XSR700 went past my house on Warning Tongue lane on the same day (Saturday) thought it might have been you...but obviously not...

speak of the devil...Mine went in for its 1st service last Monday too, also had the wiring recall done at the same time.

I have the same speedo bracket as well, just tucks up under the yamaha screens nicely. I made the pattern up for it and had Dad make some out of stainless, as well as an exhaust hanger for me.

The first service feels like a ***** to me.. £150 for a couple of litres of oil... keeps warranty though.

540 miles in 6 weeks here

Mine was free (first one at 1000km) ....I assumed it always was.
Been playing in my mind with buying a Gilles tooling bracket for the speedo too after I saw it on racingkoala´s bike but I lack the Yamaha frontal number plate so I´m not sure how´ld that play out...
