I just had a better read through your thread on the laptop instead of phone.

That engine is going to be super sweet, I had a bandit 1200 at one point and it was such a smooth effortless engine.

The fronte's were always fun to pest around in with Joe & John but bleeding from the ears is probably not great long term!

Cheers :) I did have the fire extinguisher just out of shot with the thinking that if I didn't have it handy then I definitely would have needed it.

No leaks from anything too, surprised myself

One downside to taking so long getting it together is that the 80,000k engine is actually a 98,000k engine :)

Still, it sounds healthy enough. The life of a sports tourer is probably the best way to put km's on.

Didn't seem to be much room to spare inside, do you change the pump housing too?

I had previously discounted an electric pump as the prices were high but found a seller recently who had them for $300 so decided to go for it, plus now I can see what is happening in the cooling system.

Often there is room for a bigger impeller. Might be worth a look across the Suzuki range to see if there's a bigger pump used somewhere. They all seem to have the same OD where they plug into the cases. Maybe Hyabusa ?

Agree a remote pump lets you test circulation rates etc.
