Thanks mate . No it wasn’t me . There are a few Jaffa’s getting around. I seen a black one at Kulnura a fortnight ago.
You need to check the clearance between the cam lobe and the follower, so cams have to be in place to check correctly. And if the cams are removed, they need to be reinstalled in the correct position according to the timing marks.

Same issues here in NZ--Currently waiting for centre stand & lower seat--been on back order 2 months--supposedly due in early December--all pretty pricey as well!

Hey NothinSuss, welcome to the forum. I'm just over in Branxton. Hope to catch you around some time. I spotted a Jaffa parked near the pet shop in Branxton last Saturday, not you by any chance?

Welcome to yet another Aussie. Good to see a few are getting sold here. Back in 1974 I tossed up between a Z1 and a Ducati 860 GT ( virtually priced the same at about $2000 then). On that occasion, the Ducati won. Many would question that decision but it lead me onto a Ducati 900 SS and big Suzuki GS models. So last year when I decided on another new bike, I opted for the RS. because of its semi traditional looks .  My decision in 1974 helped me decide to try the Kawa this time. At 70 , it has heaps of power for me, but is still well mannered in traffic if I venture there.
Like you I chose the Jaffa in 2019, but I also like the 2020 green and yellow. My nearest dealer had the Jaffa on his main display pedestal and a grren Cafe which I was able to test ride. Loved the Cafe fairing and bars, but not the colour. Others disagree ( as with my Ducati 860 decision, ha ha).
Enjoy your new ride. There is heaps of advice here on the forum.

The cams only need to come out if you need to make an adjustment

I do not know anything about this.  A mechanic I trust told me the cams need to come out to check the valve clearances.  He said taking out the cams is not a big deal to him and they don't have to be degreed to reinstall.
My bike is low Kilometers compared to some of the numbers here, but I will check the valve clearence this winter. We have a short riding season so l have lots of time to tinker.
The cams only need to come out if you need to make an adjustment but I am going to buy a shim kit just in case.

Iv purchase some gear off Webike in Japan. Very fast  postage if they have it in stock. Saying that I have been waiting on a comet fairing since August and should be getting sent out early next month. All depends on availability.

I think you have too much compression damping. I am only a couple of clicks in from fully open. Rebound 3 clicks out from fully closed. This works for me. I may add a couple clicks on compression when on the track.

Looks like a good upgrade. I'm waiting on a fairing to come in, once it does, this may be something for me to consider doing once it get's cold!
