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 ‘18 EC & haven’t 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 (& BNG’s) will be the Kato-killers on the ‘19 model
