Picked up my Capo mid day, 2 hour ride around and then into my garage to set up GPS and electrics for heated gloves and optimate.
Off for a 200 miler down Cirencester way tomorrow.. Cotswold Airport Av8 café.

Forum already proved it's worth, used screen fittments to attach tom tom and was able to check that the airbox/oil pipe issue had been (which it had).

Cheers guys.

I would go over the whole bike and check the nuts and bolts for tightness. Use loktite on anything loose.

Definitely check:
Exhaust Cat mounting bolt
Clutch reservoir cap
Centre stand bolts
"beer barrel" swingarm bolts

Good idea Chris, will have to wash it in the morning as I got it well and truly filthy today, so will check everything then. Wheels say they are a bit paranoid about this as it's really a fundamental PDI requirement, also my bike is ex demo so if anything was going to falloff it probably would have by now.

OK that would be the one I thrashed around the local countryside.

If your using it in this c*appy weather I'd recommend a coating of ACF50 (see my earlier post (http://www.apriliaforum.com/forums/showthread.php?276970-New-Caponord-owner-detailed-impressions/page4&highlight=ACF50) posts 59 and 60). or These guys can do it for you (http://www.allyearbiker.co.uk/).
