Yep, they're the originals.
Don't seem to have much trouble with head bearings. So long as they're greased they seem to last forever these days.
When you've finished the tdm do you want to pop down for a weekend and give mine a once over?
Coffee and cake provided you can even borrow my secretary if you want. She's a great conversationalist and has a wicked sense of humour.

no pictures but I cleaned and refitted the plastic undertray using all new stainless bolts, and I cleaned and started to install the wiring loom into the bike.
its at that point you realise you should have installed the wiring loom before the undertray and you have to take it all back out again  :'(

Getting there though. I am putting off cleaning up these throttle bodies, but it will be done this week.

I've just ordered a new set of steering head bearings. they look like the originals, and if that's the case they have 97,000 miles on them - impressive.

The paintwork is going to let it down unfortunately.
Some of the plastics are showing their age, I am going to try and create fibreglass replicas of the fiaring infills, so I can eventually make a carbon fibre option, and I am still going to redo the side panels in my own design.

Looking good.  Can't wait to see how the finished bike will look - almost a shame to take it out and get dirty.

I used BBQ paint on the TDM engine.  As you say, once cured comes up a nice solid black colour and is pretty tough.
