Post My Toy
Well lots of talk about the dark side in here, and yes I moved over too.

I looked at a few new sleds and couldn't decide, for a market thats pretty quite it seemed dealers were looking to get the most dollars for their wares.

Anyway stumbled across my 09 530 locally and wandered up for a look, shortly after that I rolled it into my shed for some personal time. 8-)

Needed a few things, new cam chain adjuster some barkbusters and it'll be due for chain and sprockets shortly.

I threw a couple of new air filters at it changed the oil and filters and adjusted things to suit me. Overall after a few weeks I'm pretty happy with it.

Just after i brought it home

Pretty well how it sits now.

I love listening to those big bores going up a long hill climb.
The way you can just drop the revs down and wind it back on in the same gear, almost like cheating bootyshake

Welcome to the proper side......
Grab a "dirt tricks" cam chain adjuster, they are awesome.
My 09 530 has done 256hrs and the valves are still in spec. I put one piston kit and a cam chain for good measure a while ago and it just keeps going strong.

Thanks All!

hey Andrew what sort of hours did you do you piston, rings and cam chain? I'm at about 130hrs at the moment and reckon it smells a bit oily now and again. Still goes well and sounds alright. Might be just being a bit anal.

Just put a new cam chain tensioner in it last week and it definately quitened it down.

Will let you know tomorrow, need to get the little service book out and check, about 150 I think. I'll take a pic of the piston for you too. Had only minor wear marks, teflon coating just starting to rub through. I dont think my bike has ever hit the rev limiter, just keep changing up which will increase the engine life 10 fold. Oil cooler too, increases the capacity by 400mls, change the oil every 20 hours. Clutch is still good too, and I use my clutch all the time. These bikes are primo, you'll be very happy.

155 hours, My bike used about 100mls of oil between changes. I think the 09 rings are better than the 08 models. Did a fair service on her before the trip across Australia. Need any more info, just sing out

Exhaust side, just a hint of wear

Inlet side, a little bit of wear.
