    500 MG Naproxen. 2 at a time. Not a recommendation (hard on kidneys/lever) but my Doc says it's OK for me occasionally.

    I have a sargeant seat.

    @ SD, Ive found using spandex shorts or basketball shorts (instead of underwear) and overpants without stitched on pockets helps.

    Ok. I used to use padded pedal bike shorts; never tried straight spandex. I can't see floppy basketball shorts creating enough of a basket for your balls to keep them from getting unruly and becoming a distraction. One thing I've grown to love for 300+ mile days is a very dorky yet damn effective sheepskin. And it's pretty frugal, too.

    Dogs are the best people.

    I use my moose racing bun savers from back in my off road days. And the sergeant seat helps too. Knee hurts before my butt does.

    Hi all, some update. I have got new 43t talon sprocket.
    I have also received nice belly pan, which requires some work but I have always wanted this belly pan.
    I am also about to change yokes and showa forks for ohlins forks with yokes. I have also found front callipers from gen1.5 mille ready to repaire, tomorrow should be cleaned, new seals are waiting already ready to fit. Will see whether the pistons are ok. I have been told by my friend that some of them have little dots. Actually, I do not know whether the new pistons are available in any shop?

    Where did you found this belly pan? How much is it cost? Make the mould of it and I think if you make them from fiberglass few people will want it. Or send it to me and I have a guy who can make copy of it

    The friend of mine was parting out his Tuono after the crash. It needs bit of care because some scratches and marks are on it but it is still in ready to use condition.
    Anyway, I assume that few companies also in Czech make them from fiberglass and also from carbon and even carbon/kevlar. I all check.

    Edit: check this page

    One question to you guys with more knowledge than I have.
    Which oil filter version is better? The long one (which I have now) or the shorter version?

    So you have a cap from 04 rsv model? I read somewhere about broken KN filter. Bigger one. I have small one and I think with oil change every year or 6000km this mod is pointless.

    What you can say about this new air stacks? Any gains?

    I dont know really from which model it is. It is a longer oil filter with higher cap.
    I dont know now what is better for the motor. Anyway, I think it.works ok, I wont exceed service periods anyway.

    Regarding the velocity stacks. First impression was good, it had not been dynoed but I had a bit better feeling mainly in the middle range revs. Maybe also the power delivery between lower and middle range was better.
    Unfortunately, the top part of the stacks broke down and had been separated. I just checked them after my second ride to see whether is everything ok.
    I must also say, that the guy from who I have bought the stacks understood the situation a send me may money back.
