My Swazi shakedown worked very well.
Rather than head off into Mozambique I have returned to SA to fix yet more things:
- The right fork leg leaks oil from the damping adjuster knob.
- The DAM exhaust melted the left indicator.
- One of my litres of fully synthetic fell off the back of my bike and disappeared within minutes.
At KTM Nelspruit Mark spotted one of my 'new' wheel bearings was completely knackered and that one of the seals was the wrong size.
The bearings were supposed to have been replaced by Clayton in Joburg.
A lucky escape.
The good news was that I could go on a walking safari whilst waiting for bits to arrive.
