Looking good! What compounds and mop heads are you using to achieve those results? Have got a small bench grinder but never had a go at polishing with it. Normally just go by hand with Autosol and finish with Belgom Alu.

Forget that - by hand - if I can get if off easy then its on the bench. I got all my stuff from here http://www.thepolishingshop.co.uk/acatalog/Polishing_Compounds_Menzerna_-p1.html I used the finest grade yellow one but they were pretty shiny to start with. I have 3 grades of soap and the matching 3 types of mop and do not mix mops with soaps.

Just looked at my receipt and I have
 yellow Menzema p175
blue p164
green 439t
all in quarter bar size

close stitch mop to start with the first grade soap (cant remember it that is blue or green)
G quality mop with the next soap
WDR loose mop for the yellow finishing.

These are what I decided on after a little reading on the subject

WARNING - IT IS ADDICTIVE.

Took the rad off to clean all the tar that had congealed on the front of the engine after riding on a newly surfaced road in France last year. While I was at it I thought I'd copper grease the exhaust flange studs. Seven of the nuts came off sweet as proverbial nuts. But there's always one motherfoccer, no matter what you're doing. The nut was fused to the stud which was just about turning, but after a squirt of Halfords Shock and Unlock, it was quickly out. Phew. A stud and a couple of nuts ordered together with pads for the front, so will no doubt do the exup valve tomorrow whilst awaiting the parts.

Great weather in Morecambe today so cleaned her then a ride up to Kirby Lonsdale and finished off at Sunderland point in Overton which is where the photo was taken. Lots of bug splats on the lid too which makes me happy.....summer is finally here, fingers crossed it stays long time.

First ride on the 1000 since last October, having spent the winter and 3000 miles on the 600. Just over 100 miles on the quiet Shropshire and Staffordshire  roads. Beautiful day, sunny, 15 degrees. Off to the Raven Cafe, Prees Heath, in the morning to the Big breakfast meet.

Took the Fazer FZS 600 & the Mrs out for a very short run today.
We done some work in the garden to start with today, that earned me a short ride out this arvo.
Pooped down to Loomies Biker Cafe in West Meon, Hants. We grabbed a mug of tea and went home.
Simple!
It was crowded at Loomies, hundreds of bikes, all the time (1 Hour) we were there there were bikes in and out at all times, some really nice bikes some not so nice. Spotted a Fazer there a yellow FZS1000 on a 03 plate, anyone we know?

Took the 600 for its MOT - passed, no advisories, absolutely spot-on.

Dudeofrude - what brand of discs did you go for ?

Can't remember off the top of my head but they aren't ebc or anything I'd heard of. They were on offer at my local yammy dealer, £200 for the full set. I known its probably sales spiel but the guy reckoned they are popular for the track bikes that they sends up to cadwell as a sponsor so should hopefully be alright. Anythings better than the states that were on there 😣😣

As for what I did today..... went to Willingham woods bike night, absolutely rammed. Saw some stunning bike too
