Was a hard slog but i renewed and refitted a gear lever rubber.  :smash

I need a new one of those and the local stealer wanted £7+VAT



Gonna cost me more than that now anyway, the one i bought totally does the job but has a brand new outer diameter of 16mm, which is less than the OEM one.
Saying that, half my OEM one looked chewed to bits anyway so it doesn't really matter, but i just fancied it a tad bigger if possible.
I couldn't find the damn thing at all on the AJ Sutton site, but after a bit of research it turns out that the very large majority of gear levers use the same standard fitting measurements of 8mm inner diameter and 40mm length, so i ordered this one which i'll get in the next couple of days.


http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/191962379408

Yes I looked into it a couple of years ago as mine is chewed up and came to the conclusion that most are a standard fit, but that ebay one I think is round but I think I am right in saying that the oem one is oval.
I wil let you pay for the ebay one and then await your in depth report with pictures and fitting instructions


You won't notice the difference whether it's round or oval, but i did notice the slightly smaller diameter on my toe.
I'm almost certain the 20mm one will be better, for me anyway.

I can't believe i just looked at the gear lever rubber i fitted the other day and it was already disintegrating at the end!

The other one has just arrived and not only does it look much more like the OEM size, albeit round in shape, the material used is much harder than the other one.
It wasn't gonna go on cold, so i put it in a cup of hot water for a couple of minutes then it pushed on straight away.
It can only be better than the first one, but i'll let you know if it also fails miserably, although i doubt it will.

removed damaged fairing and got busy with the hacksaw and sander, removed all the damaged parts and cut down the screen, altered the renthal's so they are more forward. just need to sort out mirrors and cut down the fairing infills. rad guard needs spraying black/graphite and thinking about cam covers too.
what ya reckon? doesnt look too bad in my opinion and i'm happy with it. it still offers good wind protection and the renthals are a must as I have so much wrist damage that standard bars just hurt me.
cheapy chinese exhaust still going strong, not bad for £40 eh? the finish is as good as when i bought it, no flacking etc and rivets holding strong.
my momma always says, stupid is as stupid does.
that's all i gotta say about that

Just finished fitting and testing my new leavers, they are a bit shorter than I thought they were going to be but they work so much better than the original OEM ones.
RIP my beautiful red beast 1999 to 2017 😭🏍😭

They're surprisingly good quality considering they only cost me £15 for the pair.
Next jobs to do are fit my new mirrors when they arrive then I need to find some time to fit my new Afam chain and sprocket set and finally fit my uncracked inlet manifold connecting rubbers which have been sat on the workbench for a couple of months now.

Finally replaced my cracked inlet manifold connecting rubbers. Bloody hell what a difference, the popping noise has all gone and it just feels so much smoother to ride. Next job on the list is fitting the new Afam chain and sprocket set that I have sat waiting in the garage, but I'm going to try and wait for after the winter before fitting that.

I will stick to my polishing mop on my bench grinder.
Sorry its only Arther picture but you get the idea, but to keep it like that it needs a coat of lacquer which will degrade after time, unlike yours which will stay.

What have I done on my Fazer today? absolutely nothing, much to cold.
But:Here is a old photo that showed up a couple of years ago when an old Auntie of mine died up in Ealing.
The photo is a 1949 498cc Norton single that belonged to my Uncle Fred, I am on the pillion and my big brother Mick is on the front. The photo was taken outside my house in Ealing in 1952.
I still wear them foccing shorts lol :lol

Foc me, never mind the shorts, I can still remember wearing the same sort of sandals / shoes when I was a young'un.
