Nice one Steve.

Now then, as the S is a somewhat different beast, do you have the procedure for that?

No recalls on the 2013, Yamaha seem to learn from their mistakes.

Apart from my bike  only having one left tank cover (cos the other one, unlike the bike in the instructions, is the right tank cover  ::) ) that all seems perfectly strightforward...

Many thanks as always Steve and I applaud you.
