Moved to WA in 2015 so had to leave my bikes back in the uk (aprilia falco and suzuki maurauder converted to a bobber). got settled and go the go ahead from the boss to purchase a bike I love italian bikes and a fan of of the vtwin and the suzuki tl so saw my current raptor for sale and it was within budget so she came home with me. around renovating our new house I am slowly doing a few jobs on the bike such as bleeding the brakes (the rear was a git with a knackered nipple and lots of air) which is how i found this site looking for tips to sort the brakes. Over Christmas the plan is to do a strip down while on leave from my job and do oil change, brake pads, other fluids and filters work out how the power commander works then look at maybe updating parts like the suspension, remove the Noz kit (two owners before me drag raced it a few times!!)
photos to follow as at work at the moment

Cheers
