Ahouldn't be to much of a problem Andy, the bike isn't that old so you shouldn't have to many problems with things like removing the swingarm pivot.
Red frames seem to be the in thing at the moment, I had 3 delivered back to my house from the powder coaters a couple of weeks ago. Must point out only one was mine the other 2 belong to Senna3

Not unless I'm allowed to enter a 748 as my DD bike is still untouched from last year, still hasn't made it out of the van since its return from Cadwell.

Andy I hear that Vino makes a good release agent for any seized bolts

I worked out that having the luxury (and undoubted professional quality) of a dealer doing this is equal to quite a large piece of bling! Besides as most say, it should be fun....................wheres that wine???

If you've got a budget, then double it , because once you start I can guarantee that you will find youself saying '' Well....while it's apart I may as well........''

I know , I've been there.

Will this be the first documented 999R stripdown in the DSC?

Look forward to seeing plenty of pics and reading some (funny) stories.
