OK it's time for an update.
I have done some work since the last post.
I started by re-installing the carbys, I was going to strip these down and clean them but wanted to check if the bike would run first as I was a little too keen to see if it would run.
I then re-attached the exhaust, I really didn't think this was sitting around for so long but someone decided to make a home out of it
I decided to leave him be, he would move out when things got a little hot and loud i'm sure.
Zorst on, not much room to take photos i'm afraid.
A few wires and some fresh fuel and then it was time to connect the tank.
Lights were working so that was a good start.
I hit the button and got nothing........what the fuck......oh, the kill switch......dickhead
I hit the switch and after the fuel got up HEY FUCKING PRESTO? It started and was running really well.
I don't remember much after that as I was on cloud9 dancing around the shed like an old mole at a tea party
I did have a leaking exhaust as one of the bolts was a little tight so rather than fix it I tried to tighten it and snapped it off :-/
These bolts are probably the worst to try to undo as the are steel and the head is alloy and with the heat and stuff they grow into the head.
So I called up dad for some advice and he came over and we started operating.
There is the prick.
And here is the mess we made in the shed removing it, I must admit Dad is a lot more patient than I am I would have had the shits long before he did.
We did get it in the end though
I put some new bar ends on.
Then I re-installed the front wheel.
I soaked the chain in oil for about two weeks just to help free it up, I've gotten oil everywhere but it's back on.
Forever black is the blackest black and it's black that's whack and if your mum doesn't buy it for you for christmas then she probably doesn't love you........
The previous quote may not be true and has been indorsed by no one of any importance, the chances are your mother does love you but just doesn't know you want forever black for christmas.
Now I ordered HEL braided lines on October 6th and recieved a confirmation e-mail on the 7th. About two weeks ago I e-mail then questioning there where abouts, I then got a phone call telling me they were at the Orange post office waiting to be picked up.....ummmmm I live in Wagga. Oh how close to Orange are you........about four hours.......oh so you don't want to pick them up.......no. Oh well maybe we can have them sent back here and then re-send them..........yeah, good idea.
So I'm now expecting them to show up Tuesday.
I've left the fairings off for now until i've connected the brakes up, here are how it now sits.
Enjoy your week gentlemen.
