RE: Resurrection of a scrapheap '02 TTR

The parts from TotallyTTRs were sent immediately. 6 Star service. Plus, they send an email to say the order had been received. Then another one to confirm it's been sent. And a third to tell me the tracking number.

I do hope that is how they've set up an automatic system rather than having someone sort the information and send individual messages. My local shop, whom I've been dealing with for 20 years, can't even pull up my 'phone number. They should be able to search every part inquiry, purchase, part number, return, swap, refund etc that I've had. Must be frustrating for the blokes on the counter.

What happens after it's dropped off at the post office, well that's Royal Mail & Australia Post.
I did some research via AP. There are 3 types of air mail for packages. Express, normal & economy.

AP's website told me that the Express delivery guarantee was not being honoured. All economy post was stopped. Everything else got onto aircraft as and when it could. I suppose I expected mail would be taken in freight aircraft and there would be no huge reason why freight aircraft volume would be greatly disrupted. Seems loads of airmail goes onto passenger aircraft. There's the reason for the delay.

I also chucked in a query about the package. Just two minutes ago I got an email saying it's to be delivered today. Good news.

Re the rear spring pre-load. Given that I'm no lightweight and, I often ride with gear, I've taken a punt and wound it about 50% down the thread. The shock is still on the garage floor. Swingarm still has to be returned to the frame. I've been a bit de-motivated over the past week or two.


Hope to be back rolling along by the end of the week.  Needed that motivation.


In the Riverina.
