Thanks Mike! I had a feeling they may be related. So I guess it's the scooter for the next week then :)

Young Gun, i also just fitted bar end mirrors which function OK. It's no big deal since i have $20 invested. The thing i most like is the loss of the old mirrors that looked like they were being held up by a Mexican bandit ;D. It also improved the aero over the bike.Yours is looking good.

@Mike, fixing the front brake issue, does it just require re-adjustment or do I need to take the whole front wheel off and open it up?

sounds like you might be due for cleaning out...
check the file below, you can just use the adjust
procedure if you choose...

Getting that front brake right makes all the difference.  Do yourself a favor, get some new shoes and do the 'arcing' procedure.  This made my front brake go from 'vague' to 'yup, that's a genuine front brake now' in a single day.  It is not hard to do, but is a little bit time consuming.

Reset the front brakes, muuuuuch better now. Before when I depressed the brake lever, the whole front wheel would shiver from left to right in a quick succession. It doest do that anymore. Its a little vague but no more shiver and I feel more confident with them :) Took me awhile though. Thanks for all that contributed!

Well I'll be selling this bike soon so I decided to take some final "glamour" shots of it in its final guise. Its been a great bike with loads of admirers, more so that I think i'll get from the next bike (either a 883 or a Bolt) but I need something a little faster :)
