Hi [mention]gymwitch[/mention] , it's a CBR400rr. NC23, and it will have Hurricane written on bottom fairings, you can just make it out underneath r/h casings. Here's a picture of mine taken a few year's ago.IMG_20180222_104836613.thumb.jpg.40de8dd0f9cebce08ce7c6c907effb7e.jpg.

Would have sent better picture, but bloody laptop just broke again 😟, just paid a fortune to get it fixed.

And as[mention]Stu[/mention] says turn engine over by hand first.

Mine had been stood for 8 years, had to strip down carb's to get it to run, and relay on fuel pump had broken.

Plug's are a bit of a pain to get to 😟.

Now you`ve told her you still have it I have 2 pieces of advice .

1. HIDE IT !

2. Announce publicly you have lost your tape measure as I am sure you will be inundated with questions lol.

Cheers

Before you know it [mention]gymwitch[/mention] will be asking you to take it’s clothes off so she can have a good look .... I think this is known as ‘grooming’ 😁

The offer of bench use was genuine although I have a suspicion I am too far away to be practical.

As an aside following the weekends unscheduled rear spindle incident Rex is on the bench till Tues evening but with the good weather happy to wheel stuff about to make room.
