    El Capitan's Log

    Entry one:

    Rode to the servo. Put 10KM on the Odo. Bike wouldn't start after I filled up. Got a multimeter, looks like the starter died. Sent the bike to the RACV yard.

    23 SEP 15
    Dealer confirms, dead starter. Hopefully this isn't a sign of things to come. The starters are probably made by Dihatsu anyway, right?

    24 SEP 15
    Bikes been repaired. Happy days! The brush spring failed, and the brush was no longer making contact in the motor. Really, I think a fault like that could have happened to any manufacturer, so still placing my faith in Hyosung for now.

    Entry Two:

    30 SEP 15
    Bikes been a blast, clocked up close to 400 Ks. Decided it's time to make it a little noisier, so the CF slip on has been installed. Had to use some permatex because the adapter plate didn't quite seal 100%
