    I now have a detachable cable that i can use on my bike to charge devices... just connects straight to the battery.

    What i'd ideally like to do... and will when i have time is to mount a USB port right on the the front! (plenty of space and room in the headlight faring)

    I cracked it open today and couldn't find a spare lead.... lol am leaning towards this being more of a professional job.

    but in the interim i have a charging solution!

    yay!!! K-Drives arrived today!!

    they have more room than my Honda Shadow ones, and for once, require no special "mods" on the exhaust side!!

    The bags as are, sit about an inch above the exhaust!

    I love K-drives!!

    Noticed this when i got into Sydney from the Gold Coast the other day, but didn't really think much of it till i cleaned my bike.

    The left side engine casings had oil droplets splattered about... after further investigating it appeared to originate from the Left Side breather hose.

    No puddles around or under the bike... cleaned it up when i got home yesterday and all seemed well.

    This morning riding in to work, the droplets have formed again.

    Google has told me this could be due to a blown seal, too much oil or clogged air filters... it only really appeared after a 10hr trip on my bike though... noticed a few spots in sydney, more when i got to canberra... the oil droplets only form when i use the throttle (but not in huge quantities)

    Goes in for it's 30k service tomorrow.. Hopefully it's not to expensive.

    Just got the bike back... lol well about 3 hours ago, and took it for a bit of a ride. (2.5ish hours)

    No oil anywhere on the left hand engine casing. So it's all good! it was just the overflow issue, cleaned the filters and let the oil drain and all is well... Yay! :D

    I know what some will say... "Trade it in" "Get a new one" "Your riding style doesn't match the bike" etc.

    Second gear had a slight little limp almost a year ago, it has steadily increased to an almost non existant second gear... unless I want to go slow.

    The problem is, when certain cars and bikes pull up next to me, they need to be put in their place. Even though my bike still does this, I have to skip second to do it :( So next week, it goes in for the gear to be fixed... then I may look at the possibility of a trade in :(

    Hey when ya get it done, see if Dahlitz will give you the busted gears. I'd be keen to check out why they stop working. Suspect it is eating the dogs but keen to check it out.

    You could learn to ride it properly as a third option.

    Hrrm. If it were me, I'd consider getting a machine shop to undercut the dogs then. Drag race/car racing shops can do this for ya. I can bring to coffee a 4th gear from a V8 supercar to illustrate what I mean/why this is all a problem etc. 1st to 2nd is definitely the hardest gear change-wise in any motorbike gearbox and the engagement dogs see the greatest load.

    Cool, if you're at coffee this week I'll bring it and show you. Admittedly it's one that's past it's racing used by date, but it illustrates the point.

    This is a suggestion on both the old oz109 forum and the American 109 forums, and is said to help.

    Well if that's the issue, then yes, undercutting is the go. Manufacturers don't do it because it can make it harsher going into gears and in theory you also slightly weaken the root of the dogs. It is common practise racing gearbox wise, though. I definitely would be getting someone to do it rather than doing it myself with a dremel but :)

    Got that right !! FMFD who would do this with a dremel........that is total ghetto.

    There is a mob in Melbourne who can undercut the dogs in your 109 @Wildpig, Call Angelo at Race Bike Developments in Coburg VIC. - he is the APE distributor for Oz (performance old-school parts) and will point you in the right direction :ridgy
