    I fairly laughed.
    Just heard from a well known Ducati specialist. Your ST4S is ready to ride.
    Or it would be, If someone hadn't eaten the fuse cover!

    This is a very tidy and well ordered workshop with a very tidy and ordered

    It's good to know that some laws are truly universal and immutable.

    Half my garage floor's covered with Outlander bits, the other half's
    covered with Tiger bits - I could really do without hearing stories
    like this now.

    Tell me about it. Fortunately I haven't unscrewed anything from the
    Shiver yet and the GFR is in one piece at the moment. I did run the risk
    of inventing a Yamarini this afternoon, but the Morini has only a few
    bits not in place now and they are sufficiently different to YZ parts to
    not cause confusion.

    The outcome was, however, a YZ that started after 5 kicks - Woo Hoo!.
    Not what you would call mechanically quiet (what competition stroker
    is?), but the awful death rattle from the bifurcated power valve has
    gone. Much easier to start now. New crankcase seals may well have helped
    with that as well as the impressive compression with a new piston. Just
    waiting for the FMF Fatty pipe and Power Core silencer to arrive now.
    Looking forward to the Haynes track outing on 12th March. It seems
    really crisp and much less smoky. The Boyersen reed bumf says I may have
    to jet down a tad, but the FMF is another variable, so a few plug chops
    after a two or three laps to get it warmed up are called for.
