How did you get that spring? What is the part number. I actually rode my bike to Race Tech and was told they would have to make a custom spacer with a new spring for the ES model.
This is the slightly longer direct replacement spring that I ordered online but I was told they are discontinuing it.

I spent a part of today missing my Vstrom. Why? Two words... spark plugs. I decided fit the G-power plugs I bought earlier this year. All I can say is that I hope the person who decided on the packaging job of that engine installation is on Santa's naughty list. I struggled to access most of it due to the size of my hands and refitting the breather to the bottom of the airbox was an exercise in mental dexterity as well as physical. I am not looking forward to the valve clearance check one bit! Still, the job is done and the old plugs look to be in good shape. No rust or anything, so at least I know the condition in that area of the bike. It starts and runs so all I need to do is take it out for a run once the weather improves.

I need a beer...

The only problem with the right side rear master cylinder guard is that the fixing bolts now protrude compared to the recessed OEM configuration. Tends to abrade/tear up one’s boot.

I’ve heard that, and will keep a close look out for it. Thank you.
