A hell a lot of time spent the last 6 weeks to try get it back on the road.
Tomorrow it must start. Otherwise no Rally this year either.

Now it is approved for road traffic again :D

I’m very exhausted. It did not start until 23:17 (11:17 pm) last night!

The test was 10:00 this morning. Did the last tweaks 9:44.

This is after arriving back home Monday June 11th. That's a 2000 kilometers or 1250 miles trip including the rally run in Germany. Very exhausting but fun drive.

As you possibly can see that the bike is very oily all over.
Lost one inspection cap 20 minutes from home. The one above the exhaust rocker adjustment on the rear cylinder.
I probably lost half a liter oil during these 20 minutes.

This is not the only reason for the oil. I seem to have a high over pressure in the crank so oil is pressed out in various places. Possibly wrong timing of the ventilation valve but probably also gases getting through from cylinders to crank.
