Recommended Posts

well time to get the bike ready for the summer 8-)

first job swap my EU headlight for the UK one i won on ebay :) 5 min job

next on the list

adjust valve clearances, set throttle position sensor, balance throttle bodies, get it set up on a dyno, check steering head bearings, new oil in steering damper (or new one) save for new rear shock and fit that, then save for new for springs and fit them and hopefully re valve forks but that could run into the summer, all new wheel bearings plus a few extra little things along the way 8-)

started off like this



currently like this for now :lol:

it needs some stuff doing


adjust valve clearances but when you do that you have to balance throttle bodies and before you do that you have to set throttle position sensor then it needs seting up on a dyno, also needs new oil in steering damper (or new one)

i want a new rear shock and new fork springs and all new wheel bearings

not done any track days on it YET 8-)
