Hi, 

Can I introduce myself. benx here - proud owner of a 2006 Tuono.

I've had it for ages but have only recently discovered this forum. The bike's currently out of action and needs needs a couple of things sorting - so this forum has already helped me. Looking forward to getting back on the road soon. Thx all,

Cheers,

Have done a few things recently but theres still plenty to sort out. Bikes been laid up for about 3 years and its failed its MOT (leaking fork seal and excessive linkage bearing play). 

I used a 'sealmate' type gizmo to ferret about under the fork seal & was amazed to discover that this seems to have sorted it. I'll probably replace the seals anyway though as the fork oil desperately needs changing. Head race bearings need doing (bit notchy) although the MOT, strangely, didnt pick this up. Needs full service, needs 2 tyres, needs valve clearances checking (not been done in 20K miles). Basically needs £££...

Just trying to work out what I'm going to have a crack at myself.

When the wife gets round to mowing it, I'll take a nice photo of the lawn. In the mean time here's a photo of the bike:

Thanks all for the welcome!

I've had another stab at a photo. Hopefully this one works -

Get the link from photobucket, then click on the little picture icon with a tree on it.
Paste your link into the URL section alert removing anything else in there, and hit ok.
