Confirmation sent, my new calibrated NITRON NTR-R3 with Hydraulic Preload Adjuster is on its way from US-based, Western North Carolina Fast Bike Industries. Matching TVT custom cartridges to follow after next week's FBI build. --MotoAmerica makes this a busy time for them. Can't wait! Can I have a 'high-five'!!!! 🙌

The secondary air system removed, the two 12mm vents capped, and the airbox hose connector plugged with black RTV. Associated harness plug wrapped to waterproof, labeled, and zip tied for security. This is reversible if the removal messes with performance. From what I understand it should not. The weight, .8 lbs removed.

Pics added number2

This is the Secondary Air System removed. I can always install it again.

Detail of the transparent vacuum 12mm cap with zip tie. There are two of them.

This shot is the wire harness zip tied to keep secure.

The plug waterproofed and secure. Upper right corner.

This is the airbox hose connector with black RTV as fill. A 12mm vacuum cap with zip tie could be used instead. The connector can be removed but the hole needs to be blocked.

B4 910 ergonomic tweak:
removed 19mm from each side of Rizoma Conical Tapered Handlebar, Height 29-22mm MA01.
Filed perfectly flat. Added chamfered interior and exterior. Blackened.
Adjusted all handlebar controls and remounted bar ends.
Went out for a ride to test and enjoy the fresh suspenders.
19mm on each side makes a significant ergonomic difference.

As we are confined here in France and what I can do with my bike is limited to essential shopping (basically food), there is fair chances that I won't ride it by march next year... Took benefit of the sunny day today to clean it up and get it ready for next season. It took me about 3 hours, and it's now under the winter cover.
Tomorrow, if the weather is the same, I'll take care of my wife's bike.
If you have the chance to ride your bike, enjoy, and share about it :)

Sorry to hear that are not able to ride your moto, except for supplies.
A friend in Italy is in the same situation. He only goes out for food and wine...
We (california) are probably heading for a stricter shut down too.

That said I did a deep cleaning of my MV a couple weeks ago.
But, have not ridden it since, due to weather and health.

Here's hoping 2021 is a better year than this one.

Just to be a bit specific about 2020. Ususally, i'm doing between 7000 to 10000 km in a normal year. This year, my bike did less than 2000 kms. It's the lowest mileage I did in a year on a motorbike since I have my driving license back in 1992...

Good to hear from you - suggest you raise a Metzler Z6 Issue as a separate maintenance post as the questions a good one to confirm with the community.
