Removed front forks to sand and repaint lower parts black as the origional silver paint has started to bubble so they are pretty scabby, considered polishing them but then realised I couldn't be bothered so will stick to my origional plan of quick sand down, prime and paint. Also painted my exhaust downpipes black with Hight Temp Paint today.

It wouldn't be fun if it was easy, I just wish it wasn't this much fun.

Ordered a full service kit + exhaust gaskets + shiney nuts for the rear sprocket + sprocket cover gasket and buffed up my newly polished peg hangers and swingarm ready for the installation back onto the bike... pictures to follow on my swingarm post p.s. dont try and polish your swingarm on the fzs 600 unless you are happy to have a 3 week head ache. I have also been busy sorting out the thou shock im putting on the 600 too.  :lol

Get out there and smash it!


2 oC feels really warm in the evening after sub zero temperatures on the way to work,,, I've even gave it some serious shit on the last couple of roundabouts near to home. OK, there's a lot of salt still sitting on the surface but no bother.....

Got out the extra thick tasty warm winter cover (even though it's in the garage) and tucked my luverly bike up all nice and warm.
It's gonna be -2C tonight so wanted to make sure she didn't catch a chill.
my missis thinks I'm potty,  :'(

That could have been interesting  :lol

But no, the wear on the teeth was back to front because of how it got re-installed after the engine was taken out so it was causing a horrible knock. Knock is now eliminated :D

Started the bike and let it run for 10 mins just to see if it still started after 5 weeks of inactivity! Discovered that the fronts brakes are sticking on, again, despite giving the pistons a thorough cleaning up after it's last venture out.


Had to make room in the garage for a 900 RRV Fireblade I've just acquired....by chance....while tyre kicking round a local dealer this week :)  Gets delivered next week (my summer bike).

What did I do with my FZ1 last week? Used it for the first time this year for commuting. A combination of bad weather, getting a new battery, medication for an injury (non-bike), breaking a contact lens and getting new ones cost me 5 or 6 weeks of bikeless commuting. Glad to be back on two wheels. But it's bloody cold!
