One FZR with problems :)
I met Marcos in a gas station. When he mounted the seal rings, he didn't push hard and the safety ring was mounted badly.

We needed some tools that we didn't bring with us and fork oil. Marcos and I had to improvise. So we beat the seal rings on one side with the screw driver and held the other side with pliers.

Meantime, a motorcyclist passed by and saw us so he stopped. It was Ilarie. I met him in Bucharest last year. As a true motorcyclist he helped us: gave us fork oil and took us to a local scooter service. There we worked with good tools and managed to put the seal rings in place. Putting the fork oil in took the longest time because of the damper springs.

We called Skywalker to tell him that we were going to be late and kept working on the bike. The people from the service were extremely nice and didn't want any money for their help.

On the road again

After about two and a half hour Marcos and I finished the work on the bike, and with the help of the people from the service, the fork had oil again.

We called Skywalker again; he was eating in a restaurant near Bacau.

So we set out to Bacau.
