i read in this froam that the gray wire in can/aus bikes are already cut this is not so they are still joined,we have two thottle stop screws one that comes in the bike and one that in giving to you when you bye the bike in a box with alot of other stuff.I must thank you guys for putting up the froam about the chain giude in australia no ones know anything about what to do about there bikes so it was a real surprize to learn about the air box,grey wire,chain giude,but i would like to know more is there anything else i can do your input would be greatful :cry:

Hey fellow Aussie, :cry:

Check this one out

I haven't heard of any woodruff key faults here In Australia. I’ve got 1700kms on mine and no problems. (Touch wood).
Also I disconnected the grey wire and installed a switch on the bars, but can't seem to notice any change, I might just put it back to how it was.
Also here is a closer look at when you re-route the breather hose

This site is great, Taught me allot about my bike, im sure you will learn heaps to.
Were abouts do you live?
