The little GT is getting better every time I ride it. I brought a Jet kit from 6 Sigma and received an immediate performance upgrade through the whole rev range. Still tweaking the clip position and have 1 larger set of main jets to try. So far though, the richer I make it the better it runs.

You're still riding...I'm so damn jealous. I wish I lived in Oz, everything is a frozen wasteland up here. Anyhow glad the bike is treating you well and Happy New Year!

Smack middle of summer downunder. In fact, mostly too hot to ride if you don the leathers and gloves.

Love this bike. ;D

How's the ride with the suspension upgrade....and what did you end up putting inside front forks?
Run out of zip ties? Dental floss is an excellent alternative.

Sounds depressing! Good time of year to be riding here, can be hot though.

Suspension is, well, it's ok. The forks were stripped, cleaned and new oil. No modifications yet. They work ok. The rears are much better than the original ones were. They are only base model shocks though.
Not sure what to do with the front other than change oil level and weight. Suspension Shops don't want to touch it.
