    Hey jwer,

    hope you can make it! Yea Griff charges 275 for a major service, which personally I thinks a bargain, Southerncross in London charged the previous owner of my bike 240 for a minor service!

    As promised been in touch with Griff. He has confirmed that Monday 5th October is good for him too, so the date is set.

    If everybody could just confirm in this post that they will definitely be attending that would be great, so griff can plan parts etc.

    Ta,

    Anton, Sorry for the confusion Mate I was saying I would have the RSV valves checked IF I didnt swap it for a ZX10 (I have now, well this Saturday)
    So no longer have my RSV

    Cheers

    I'm in. Will book the day off too.

    How much is the suspension set up? Don't worry if there's loads to do, I'll go the end of the queue and come for the crack anyway.

    Confirmation that i will attend

    Hi anton i can make that day no problem will get youre address closer to the date i also have front and rear paddock stands i can drop off for us to use if it helps griff, front is the type that allows the bike to be lifted using the stearing stem so allows front forks to be removed and tell griff what biscuits does he want.
    cheers

    delmonk that's a good question, and hopefully one I will be able to answer once i've talked again with Griff. It may be a long day for him!

    Factorydude, that might be a good call, i'll ask him when we speak, I have rear, but no front stand. As for biscuits, word on the street is jaffas, but again i'll ask!

    me - service and suspension set up - CONFIRMED
    bigun - suspension setup - CONFIRMED
    jwer - valve clearance check and tune up
    factory dude - valve check, tune up, front end check - CONFIRMED
    Andirsv - fork service - CONFIRMED
    Buffalo - valve clearance check and tune up
    rsv05marc - service and check over - CONFIRMED
    delmonk - suspension set up and throttle body balance - CONFIRMED

    If it turns out there will not be time to do all, I'm afraid it will have to be first come first serve basis, but I'm hoping this won't be the case. After all its in a garage, and we have lights, so the midnight oil can be burnt if Griffs up for it!

    No worries Griff, anything for the zones cheif mechanic!

    Ok so I can only make the 5th of oct due to lecture commitments on the tuesday. I may b around tue lunch time. So either I can leave the garage open and avaliable while I'm at Uni so you guys can come get your work done, or the work moves to biguns house on tue. I don't mind leaving garage avaliable so it's up to griff and you guys really. Griff if you need a bed we have a sofa bed, I'll have to square it away with the mrs first though!

    That's weird, same MSG twice! Think griff will have to decide what he can do on one day and split it up accordingly. Not everyone has confirmed yet either so may not be as many people.

    If it moves location tue I might pop in to whoever house on lunch just to meet some more peoe from the zone!
