    Thanks so much for the welcome messages.
    Is my first time on any kind of non-medical forum.
    Bought a Tiger pannier on eBay for little money and put its  lid on to the carcass of the damaged right pannier and, success!
    Now got to obtain parts of the fairing and cockpit, and broken arms of the screen mechanism.
    I think these bits are pretty easy, though getting the arms may need a visit to Lind Vauxhall.
    The difficult bit is that it is very skittish at 5-10mph and not stable enough to do a feet-up U-turn.
    Wheel bearings seem ok.
    Donít know about checking head bearings or fork oil levels, and havenít figured out how to look at wheel alignment front and rear.
    The seat is a low one, and thatís not helping, cos Iím 185cm Ö
    I obviously had a day off today!!

    Checking the oil level inside the forks, that is very difficult to find out, unless the two forks are disassembled and the oil is poured into a glass with measures of liquid (but I see it absurd) since in that case no longer Would it matter? Know the level, if not once the forks were removed it would be replaced with new oil then measured according to the manufacturer's specifications.

    As for its 1.85 of its height, it is a tall motorcycle with the three height positions, in its case it should be two helmets that shows it with two icons on the instrument panel.

    Also yes, remove the pilot's seat you can see that there is a metal bar in which it has two positions, high and low. check that it is not in the down position.

    Finally, make sure that the motorcycle has not been lowered by the previous owner with the rods to make it lower, in that case you will need to replace the two rods to return to its normal height.
