I went riding on sunday, only for an hour or so, and this was after I had been out for a similar amount only a couple of weeks earlier. Before I went out a couple of weeks ago, I checked my oil level and it was great, so didn't think to check it this week. (I've had the bike 3.5 years...

After rebuilding my RD03, I nearly forgot that I had repainted this center stand until the other day I stumbled across it sitting in a corner. As you can see, I had it on the bike before, but the bike would sit crooked as the mounting hardware (spacers) didn't seem to be the correct ones. The...
