Sweet, thanks. I'll be using that when I get to the Desmo service, so it's much appreciated.

Great thread & pics. Question, how do you get the exhaust front pipes / header off? I’m stuck. Do both pipes have to be undone at where they meet the cylinder head? Do they come off as one piece, or is it possible to somehow remove only the front cyclinder pipe? Any help or pics appreciated. Googled but can’t find anything

Edit ignore - I just reread first post properly!

What does everyone use to measure the tension frequency of the belts? Any particular good app to use? I might as well change my belts now as the bike is apart. The bike only has 13000kms but its 4 years old now so I guess they should be changed :0

I used the Gates belt tuning app on my mobile, it works well.

I've been researching this and one thing you should replace at least every other belt change are the lock nuts holding the tension adjuster pulley. http://ca-cycleworks.com/ca-, products/timing-belts/m8locknut

These lose appx. 1/3 of their locking ability with each use according to ca cycleworks.

They also have an excellent belt replacement video series on you tube.
