I left my one litre sauce bottle at SMW... crap! I loved that thing, was awesome for doing gassy oil changes...
Keep an eye on the chamber bolts, they use the rubber coated KTM style mounts and the bolts have a tendency to wind out.

I replaced the bulky & hideously-expensive-to-replace Leonelli switchblock with a simple $10 waterproof on-off switch.

In doing so, I reversed the Kill & Start locations - they are now where they feel natural to me; Start - rhs & Kill - lhs. I left the Kill switch in-situ & just wired it in to the block of male pins behind the headlight using spare connectors. I sealed the rest of the block cavity with Liquid Electrical Tape (love that gear & not too difficult to pick out if reversal is required) & turned it pins-down to reduce water/dirt ingress.

No horn now, but the Gas Gas horns hardly make eardrums bleed anyway. I just blip the throttle to get attention if required instead.

Neat & tidy!

quote=gibnut "Mark the swingarm an equidistant measurement from the rear on both sides so you have a reference to set chain tension".
To ensure the wheel is aligned in it/your frame: Initially (only once) measure back & mark equidistant from the centre of the swingarm's pivot-shaft on both/each side.
Then-also: With the bike upright: Sight/view along the chain to see it's straight & aligned with/around both sprockets: So-as-to avoid/alleviate any sideways chaffing.

quote=gibnut "The screws on my carb were on VERY tight, so putting straight downforce on them made sure I didn't dig out the Phillips recesses".
Those screws are likely "JIS" not "Phillips" .. So buy a JIS screwdriver or file the point off your Phillips screwdriver until you manage to buy a JIS one.

quote=wikipedia "The JIS B 1012 is commonly found in Japanese equipment. It looks like a Phillips screw, but is designed not to cam out and will therefore be damaged by a Phillips screwdriver if it is too tight. Heads are usually identifiable by a single dot or an "X" to one side of the cross slot. Specific "JIS" standardized cruciform-blade screwdrivers are available for this type of screw."

If you have an Ď18 EC & havenít replaced the battery-earth, battery-starter relay & starter relay-starter motor cables with 8mm copper core cable, do it.

I completed this mod this arvo & it makes a HUGE difference to the e-start system, hot or cold. Instant fire-up.

I bet this upgrade (& BNGís) will be the Kato-killers on the Ď19 model

Usually its only the battery leads ..
Have just ridden one with the cables done but only the battery ones and it still wouldnt start off the button cold !!
Its the only thing holding me back pulling the trigger on the EC
Might suggest getting the starter cable done too and see if that makes any changes to its ability to start cold off the button like my Betas did

Or am I just spoiled with how good they were ???

In my experience, the Ď18ís ainít no Beta on the button. Mine started well after the mod above, but will not fire cold. Some people have had success with a glass matte battery instead of Li-Ion.

Ona positive note, a lot of the Ď19 upgrades focus on the starter system, so thatís an acknowledgment from the factory that there have been issues.

Seriously, I wouldnít let a kick start at the start of a ride put you off, mate!
